If you are a regular sports bettor in the UK, then the chances are that you have placed an accumulator bet, or acca at some stage. An acca is a single bet that chains multiple bets together. Calculating the winnings from an acca can be time-consuming, and cause headaches or even migraines! This is where our accumulator bet calculator comes in.
We can take the strain out of acca bet calculations with our handy tool!
The maths with accas can become quite horrendous, especially if your acca has a large number of selections. You may also make mistakes working out your calculations manually, such as chaining your winnings to the next bet in your acca as opposed to your returns. Getting your sums wrong could lead to unrealistic expectations and disappointments when your accas wins!
Our accumulator bet calculator is faultless and takes all the guesswork and manual number-crunching out of working out your acca payouts, or at least your potential acca payouts. Just use our online bet calculator accumulator tool to get an accurate prediction of how much you stand to win.
An accumulator bet is a bet where multiple single win or each way bets are ‘chained together’ to create a single bet. The most attractive aspect of an acca is that odds will usually be quite high. The least attractive aspect of an acca is that all your selections have to come in in order for your overall accumulator bet to win.
Say you are a football fan and you want to bet on a series of EPL matches at your favourite online bookmaker. You feel that Bournemouth will beat Chelsea, Man City will beat Leeds, Newcastle will beat Arsenal, and Nottingham Forest will beat Southampton. You could placed four £1 single football bets as follows:
Total return – £8.99
As an alternative (or additionally), you could have placed a £4 acca as follows:
Total return – £76.16
The acca won over eight times what the four single bets did. The only downside to the acca is that all four teams would have had to win for the acca to win. With the four singles, some return is guaranteed unless all four single bets fail.
One thing that is important to note is that many UK sports books will offer ‘acca insurance’. This is where your stake is paid back to you as a free bet should your acca fail by a single selection. There is usually a limit as to the minimum number of selections an acca can have so that is qualifies for acca insurance. This is usually four, so you can use our tool as a 4 fold accumulator bet calculator in this case.
Each-way accas can get very complicated. If you have a number of selections, then you will be placing win and place bets on them all, so you are in effect placing a win acca and a place acca.
If you create a £10 each-way accumulator bet, then £5 of your bet will go towards your win acca, and £5 towards your place acca:
All these considerations have to be taken into account when calculating the returns or potential returns from an each way acca, which is why it is a lot easier to use our each way bet accumulator calculator as opposed to working everything our manually.
