An accumulator bet is a multiple wager. Any number of single wagers can be combined to make an accumulator, but typically a bet must have at least four selections to be considered a genuine accumulator. A bet of two singles is known as a double, and a bet of three singles is known as a triple.
When you place an accumulator bet your bets are 'strung together' - i.e. the winnings from your first bet (and your original stake) are used as the stake for your second bet, and so on. It doesn't matter which order your accumulators bets are processed in as the outcome - if they are all winners - will be the same. To win an accumulator bet, ALL your individual bets must be winners.
The main advantage of an acca bet is clear - the odds are chained together in sequence so your payout if you are successful is much, much higher than if you were to place the same number of individual bets. For example, bets on five events with average odds of 4/1 would - if all successful - return you just that: 4/1. The same bets chained as an acca would give you combined odds of 3,125/1, which would be a considerable improvement.
We post a range of accas, from home/away/draw outcomes to BTTS (both teams to score) and over 2.5 goals. You may combine any events from any markets to create an accumulator, of course.
We'll present a list of home/away/draw outcomes that we think are worthy of inclusion in an accumulator. How many of those outcomes you choose to chain in your acca is up to you. Some people never like to go above four selections when it comes to accumulators, but others are willing to go as far as eight or nine.
Remember, the more single markets you include within your acca, the more money you are likely to win if all your selections come up trumps. On the flip side, the more single markets you include within your acca, the more chance there is of one or more selections failing and your acca becoming a losing one.
The true beauty of an acca is that you never have to risk a big stake if you are interested in winning a sizable amount of money. Consider it the same as buying a lottery ticket, but one where you have a decent-enough amount of control over how the balls you selected will land.
Accas offer the chance to bank huge profits from a small stake. We've all seen social posts with a lucky punter making five-figure sums from a £1 stake. While you might be skeptical about some of these claims, there are plenty that have been verified.
In 2001, for example, there was one punter who stood to make over half a million pounds after all his acca selections came in with one to go - all he had to do was hope and pray that Bayern Munich won the UEFA Champions League final. Can you imagine how the guy felt when the game went to penalties? Relieved, probably, as we all know how good German sides are at taking spot-kicks! Thomas Linke of Bayern scored the side's seventh spot-kick to win the trophy over Valencia and create a brand new half-a-millionaire. Oh, and the 'lucky' punter's stake at the start of this accumulator bonanza? A mere thirty pence!
Of course, your accumulator does not have to be that extreme, or that hopeful. You could easily win over £1,000 with a £10 stake with as little as four selections. Naturally, if you were to tag on a fifth selection you'd win even more, but that's down to you!
We pride ourselves at giving the best tips available online. The team behind AskFans are first and foremost football fans who live and breathe the game. We analyse all the day's fixtures to find the best picks for each of our tips.
To make the best choices when it comes to each individual match you really have to know what you are talking about. There are lots of factors to consider when choosing which team is most likely to come out on top - current form, long-term form, player availability (i.e. if a key member of the team such as Mo Salah at Liverpool or Nemanja Matic at Manchester United is injured or suspended), the likelihood of the manager to select a weaker team (usually because an important European tie is forthcoming) - they all have to be factored into consideration when making a choice, and we examine every aspect we can think of in order to come up with the best tips possible.
Once we've crunched both the numbers and all considerations we'll publish our top tips here at AskFans. We like to vary our selections, so as well as simple winners we will also select games where hot-shot attacks come up against leaky defences for >2.5 goals and BTTS tips, as well as any market consideration that we feel you need to be made aware of.
The concept is simple, and gives our readers the chance to create great acca tips on a huge range of weekly football matches.
Our team of experts selects a number of different bets ahead of the next big round of games, and then puts them to the public vote. The selections that you consider the most likely to win will be compiled into the day's accumulator!
Even the most seasoned punter can make mistakes when placing an acca - perhaps you've overlooked a key injury, or missed out on a great selection in favour of a riskier pick. With die-hard fans sharing their thoughts and analysis on every pick we aim to reduce the margin of error as much as possible, delivering quality tips on a regular basis.
We're completely transparent about our picks, both past and present. You can check our Twitter history to see previous selections and our win rate.
Plus, we work with many of the UK's biggest bookmakers to get exclusive offers and enhanced odds on our selections, meaning you can get a better deal on your picks through our community.
