What is a Canadian Bet?

A wager on 5 selections consisting of 26 bets: 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-fold's and a five-fold accumulator.

Snooker Game

The canadian, also known as a super yankee, is a bet where all runners have equal weight on determining the return from the wager. Very similar to the Lucky 31, the only difference being the 5 missing single bets that would have otherwise been placed on each selection.

Given the complexity of the bet, it can be difficult to predict what effect a losing runner might have on returns. However, you can experiment with different outcomes using the canadian bet calculator.

Should any two selections win, a return is made from this bet.
