Accumulator Bets

An incredibly popular form of betting is by placing Accumulator Bets. Small stakes for potentially high rewards is what attracts gamblers to the bet.

The Accumulator Bet has many different titles, normally depending on which country you are from. Below are a few of the more well known terms for a bet containing several selections;
Australia – Multi
UK – Accumulator, acca, roll-up, coupon (rare)
Scandinavia – Combo
US – Parlay

The average gambler mindset sees them much prefer to put £5 on 5 teams winning on a Saturday and if correct they receive £240. Rather than betting 5x £1 single bets on the same 5 teams. The average gambler will lose long-term as they will rarely be securing value bets. Opting for the £5 accumulator bet will do is speed up that process.
