What is a canadian bet/super yankee?
Also known as a Super Yankee, a Canadian is a type of multiple bet that can be placed when exactly five outcomes have been added to your betslip. It comprises twenty six bets in total, being made up of 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-fold combinations and 1 five-fold combination. Because of this, your chosen stake will be multiplied by 26 to cover the overall cost of the bet. At least two outcomes must be settled as a winner on a Canadian bet to receive a return.
Example of a canadian bet/super yankee
To place a Canadian bet, you must first choose five outcomes from sporting events found at Unibet. This can be from a mixture of different sports and markets, but not from the exact same event. An example could be:
- Manchester United to beat Arsenal (odds: 3.00)
- Leicester City vs Crystal Palace - Over 2.5 Goals (odds: 2.10)
- Molde to draw vs Rosenborg (odds: 3.20)
- Erling Haaland to score 2+ Goals for Manchester City (odds: 2.80)
- Novak Djokovic to beat Nick Kyrgios 3-1 (odds: 3.75)
Enter your desired stake into the Canadian box in your betslip. This will be multiplied automatically by 26 to give the final outlay, i.e. a €0.50 stake will equate to €13.
Each component of the bet will be multiplied by the €0.50 stake and then added together to give the final returns.
The lowest payout possible would come if only outcomes 2 and 4 were to win, resulting in €2.94. This is calculated as (2.10 x 2.80) x €0.50.
If all six outcomes are successful, the winnings would equate to 462.10 (giving us €449.10 profit minus our €13 total stake).
Pros and cons of a canadian bet/super yankee
The main advantage of a Canadian bet is that the increased number of bets can act as a form of consolation if all your predictions aren’t correct. However, the bet doesn’t cover singles and the return for only winning a double isn’t likely to cover your overall outlay. Canadian bets are therefore recommended when selecting outcomes with individual high odds.

How to use the bet calculator
The Unibet Betting Odds Calculator makes it incredibly easy to instantly view the returns of your selected bet type and stake. You can also easily change the odds display from fractional to decimal in the top right corner of the page, as per your preference.
To begin, first you must decide which type of bet you are looking to place. The Unibet Calculator ranges from simple doubles, trebles and combinations through to more advanced Trixies, Yankees, Heinz and Lucky 63 multiples, etc.
For example, if you select a ‘Goliath’ multiple bet, this will generate eight blank selections that make up a Goliath bet. You must now enter the odds of each of your eight picks manually, followed by the stake per line.
By pressing ‘Calculate Now’ this will display the total stake required to place the bet, along with the Total Return and Total Profit. Another great tool is that you can easily switch each selection from being a Winner into a Lost or Void outcome. Your overall returns will be adjusting automatically after calculating the returns again. This is a great way of visualising how your bet will perform should one or more selections not be successful.
Additional betting considerations
For horse racing gamblers in particular, the Unibet Betting Odds Calculator includes the provision for Each Way betting. By selecting this, the fields will now include an option for you to adjust the Place odds (as displayed on the race betting page itself) and thus instantly calculate the returns if your horse were to finish in the applicable place positions.
Another provision is that of Rule 4 deductions. This is implemented in a horse race if a participant is withdrawn after you have placed your bet – therefore adjusting the odds. Depending on the horse that has been withdrawn, you can adjust the deduction manually by selecting either 5% to 20% per Euro bet. Finally, you can also adjust the outcome to that of a Dead Heat should multiple horses cross the finish line at exactly the same time.
