Accumulator bets have become exceedingly popular in the UK because punters reap big from small stakes. With accumulator bets, losing a single leg ruins your run. Nothing makes gamblers cringe more than losing an accumulator bet on few losing legs. As a result bookies are giving money-back promotions, in the form of a bet called acca insurance. When one leg of an accumulator bet loses (can be up to 3 losing legs depending on the type of acca selected), bookies give the stake back in the form of a free bet. As a result, punters get a chance to stake again. The following bookies offer different accas with their unique terms.
William Hill was the first bookie to offer acca insurance. With this bookmarker, your accumulator bet must include 6 or more football matches. William Hill only deals with straight accumulator bets, so multi-bets such as Canadian’s and Lucky31’s don’t get a refund. The maximum refund is £50 for each bet, and each customer is eligible once a day.
Bet365 is another popular bookie that offers acca on football matches. The minimum acca is a 3-fold bet that attracts a bonus of 5%. This percentage rises with each leg up to a maximum of 100% on 14-fold bets or more.
Betfair offers two promos, one in the both-teams-to-score market (BTTS) and the other in the match-odds market. A punter has to place a bet of four or more matches to get a refund in the both-teams-to-score market. In the match-odds market, a punter has to place a bet of five or more matches. For both accas the maximum refund is £25 on each bet.
With Coral bookie, acca is currently available for football matches in the match odds market only. The bigger the acca a punter selects, the more the losing legs it contains, meaning that a punter can get a refund with more than one leg lose. The money given back goes to a maximum of £25 on each bet.
Skybet offers acca to its soccer punters in the form of free bets too. Here, a punter needs a qualifying bet total of £40 to get a £5 free bet. The offer is currently available on football matches only.
Paddy Power bookmakers, which is quite similar to William Hill, provides a maximum of four free bet tokens per user each day. The minimum number of teams is five and applies to Win-Draw-Win situations. All major leagues are eligible for this promotion.
Ladbrokes is yet another bookmarker that has money-back offers on bets with five or more matches. The maximum free bet offered by Ladbrokes is £25. Games eligible are those played during weekends between 08:00 Friday and 23:59 Sunday in the selected Leagues.
One of the catchiest accas offers is by BoyleSports. Their promotion is eligible for ALL sports, in ANY market at any time, not just weekends.
Acca is a significant step in the betting industry, giving punters more assurance with their accumulator bets consequently making gambling more fun, safer, and more profitable.
