What is an accumulator bet?
Also known as an ‘acca’, an accumulator is one bet made up of multiple selections. All selections must win for the bet to be successful. Returns are calculated by multiplying the stake by the odds, then multiplying the total return by the second set of odds, and so on.
Accumulators are particularly popular in football, where punters enjoy placing lots of short odds selections into one bet to bring in big winnings – often with the help of our football accumulator tips!

How to work out accumulator odds?
Returns on an accumulator are calculated by multiplying the stake by the odds, then multiplying the total return by the second set of odds, and so on. The easiest manual way to find your total odds is to use the following formula:
1 X (2/1 +1) X (3/1 +1) X (5/1+1) X (8/1 +1) = Total Odds
Or alternatively, you can use an online bet calculator to find your winnings.

How does an each way accumulator work?
Each way accumulators are most often employed in horse racing. These bets are designed to ensure punters still win something if their bet doesn’t win outright. In this sense, a second bet is included which requires all selections to ‘place’ (come close to winning), and would return a profit at a fraction of the price. To use horse racing as an example, this could be on horses to ‘place’ in the top 3 of a race, for example. The definition of ‘placing’ depends on the terms of the each way bet.
