Football accumulator betting has become very popular in the UK over the last two decades. In fact, they have become something of a ritual to many football fans across the land.
In some ways, accumulators have become as important as the games themselves (well, almost).
So what exactly is a football accumulator, and how do you go about placing a bet?
Why should I place an accumulator bet?
The main benefit of placing an accumulator bet is that your winnings will be much greater than if you placed a single bet since the risk of losing your bet is higher. In fact, just one of your selections needs to fall for you to lose your whole bet.
In the unlikely event that one of the teams you’ve bet on doesn’t play, you won’t lose your stake. Instead, we’ll recalculate your accumulator as though it hadn’t contained the selection. So if you have a 5-fold accumulator, it then becomes a 4-fold instead.
Of course, betting on so many games happening at the same time adds to the sheer thrill of it all. Almost every Saturday, when there are over 40 matches going at once all over the country, your options are almost limitless. This can transform any contest into a crucial game.
Many fans agree that no other type of betting matches the thrill of having that last-minute goal clinch your accumulator. And while accumulators play a part in all English football leagues and other sports too, they have become very much part of football culture for many punters.
