When placing a multiple bet, you do not have to use the bookies special slips, as bets such as Yankees, Canadians, etc., have the odds stacked against you. If you must do these bets, bend the odds a little more in your favour, by writing out the bet with a different staking level. ie.,
4 Horses = 6 x £1 win doubles, 4 x 50p Trebles, 1 x 25p e/w accumulator.
This costs £8-50, whereas a full Yankee is £11. This way the greater the accumulator, the less chance you have of winning, so this method keeps your stakes in proportion. Remember, you probably lose more than you make on these bets, so this will save you money. If you have a loser, you only lose the small stakes first, and by backing the full accumulator e/w, you give yourself more cover. You can mix & match the stakes & perms any way you wish.
