How To Do An Accumulator On Betfair: Extended Steps

Step 1

The first step in the process is to log into your Betfair sports betting account using the username and password you used when you registered (click here to log in). If you don’t have this to hand, or have forgotten, you can use the link provided to remind you of your password or username via email to regain access to the site.

Once you are logged in, you are now ready to look through the site for an acca to place. Remember, you can use Enhanced Specials or the Acca Insurance Offer on Both Teams to Score bets to give you another option alongside building your own bet.

Step 2

The next step is to find the sport you want to bet on by navigating to it. Most popular sports are listed both in the tabs at the top of the screen and in the middle column, though if you want to bet on a sport not listed, click on the All Sports tab furthest left on the screen to bring up a list of all the sports Betfair are currently running markets on.

Once you have found the link to your sport, click on it to bring up the latest market information on it.

Step 3

Now that you have your list of games or matches, you can now start to piece together your accumulator. Scroll through the fixtures that are coming up and when you want to add a selection to your betting slip, click on the odds of the selection to do so.

As you add more selections to your betslip, the betslip will update and show you the increasing number of singles and multiple bets available. Once you have made all your selections that you wish to, it’s now time to look at the bet slip.

Step 4

Have a look at the bet slip and underneath all the single bet options for each of your selections you will see listed a number of multiple bets. The bet you want to make, the accumulator using all selections, is usually listed at the top of the list of multiple bets (suffixed by a x1 in brackets to indicate that it is a single bet).

Enter your stake into the white box to the right of your choice of bet and to the left of that box you will see a number, this is the stated odds for the bet and when you enter your stake, you will see how much you would receive back if your bet was successful underneath the box you entered your stake in.

Step 5

When you are happy with the bet, simply click on the yellow ‘Place Bets’ button and your bet will be placed. Or you can start again by clicking the Remove All button to remove your current selections and add new ones to your coupon.

Betfair Accumulators & Enhanced Specials

Betfair offer two very different types of acca promotions, both of which are different to each other and between them, they offer the acca punter an excellent choice between them.

Enhanced Specials

Each day Betfair offer a number of Enhanced Special Doubles, Trebles and Accas on a selection of different bets across a wide range of sports. Click here to view (always found in middle of sportsbook homepage).

This means you can bet on these pre-selected bets at greater odds than you would get by selecting them yourself on the individual odds alone.

If you are a fan of these pre-selected added value accas then they can be a good way to bet, especially if you like to place bets quickly.

Acca Boost Offer

Acca Boost from Betfair is their way of giving accumulator fans a little extra value from their first acca punt of the week.

You can win up to 50% more on your first acca of the week depending on how many legs the bet has if it meets the criteria to qualify.

To qualify your bet must:

  • Be settled within 30 days of placement.
  • Have a max stake £25.
  • Be placed with real cash.
  • Be a winner and not cashed out.

The bonuses available are as follows:

Legs Bonus
3 5%
4 10%
5 15%
6 20%
7 30%
8 40%
9 45%
10+ 50%

The max benefit you can get from the offer is £2,000 and any additional bonus winnings will be paid out in free bets which are stake not returned when used.
