Accumulator betting is one of the most popular betting practices in the modern football betting world, and an ‘accumulator’ refers to a single bet which involves four or more different selections. Most of the time, however, accumulator betting involves much more than four selections and some accumulators can go all the way up to twenty different selections and beyond!
The main factor which differentiates accumulator betting from all other betting types is that for your accumulator bet to win, all of your individual selections must come through. So, if you have a twenty-fold accumulator and nineteen of your selections win, with one selection losing, your entire bet will be lost.
Accumulator betting has become wildly popular in the UK and throughout the rest of the world in the last 20 years and it has found a particular prominence in football. It is a commonplace betting method and it is something which has been embraced by betting sites and betting shops up and down the country.
Accumulator betting is often referred to as an ‘acca’ and they are something which football punters take very seriously. The main attraction when it comes to football betting is that 1) the combination of four different selections or more means that the odds become combined and increase massively, creating the potential to win some ridiculous sums of money and 2) the fact that accumulator betting adds more excitement to something which was already very exciting in the first place!
Having stakes on one bet across multiple different games really is something which provides a lot of excitement and keeps punters on edge, monitoring each of their games as they take place. An accumulator bet can transform your typical bets into something truly amazing.
For example, would you rather place your usual bet on your favourite team to win or try your hand at accumulator betting and seeing if you can predict the winning team across ten different games? We know which we would go for.
Accumulator betting is something which really does pay out huge sums of money, too. We’ve all seen our mates winning a hundreds of pounds from their tiny £0.50 stake… this is an accumulator bet and it is more luck than anything.
One thing you need to remember when it comes to accumulator betting is that it is a huge game of risk, but there are some truly amazing rewards to be won if you manage to get the right combination. In addition to this, you really do not need to be placing huge stakes on accumulator bets; a ten or twenty-fold stake can easily ramp up odds to 100/1 or more, meaning that your £1.00 stake can easily become £100 or more!
Remember though, ten or twenty individual selections on your accumulator means that ten or twenty different bets need to come through in-order for you to win. To get ten or twenty different football bets right and have them all come through is incredibly rare, but it does happen, so what are you waiting for?
