Free Bet this Weekend. in Main Discussion - Norwich City Posted February 8, 2008 Some confusion seems to be about what a Yankee bet is.Yankee Bet explained.A Yankee is bet consisting of 4 selections, be it horses, football matches or whatever. You need at least 2 selections to win to get a return on your stake.(a double) Any 3 of the 4 selections win is a treble. All 4 selections win is a 4 timer.= If all 4 selections win, you get 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four timer. But if only 3 selections you get 3 doubles and 1 treble. 2 selections win and you get a double.Amount staked can be to suit your pocket, but it is 11 bets in total.I hope that doesn''t confuse you even more.
