 How to Place an Accumulator Bet

Try putting an accumulator bet if you like online betting but want to mix things up a little. You can bet many bets on a variety of sports, and if you master the technique, your betting adventure will be even more exciting.

What is an Accumulator bet?

Combining these two or more selections into a single wager, an accumulator bet (also known as an Acca or high-roll bet) only pays out when all parts win.

While accumulator bets involve a high level of risk, they also offer a larger return in the event of a victory. Furthermore, the odds will increase as you add more options. This is why it's common for a small bet to result in a large return.

How to calculate your Accumulator bet winnings

Win or Lose

Match Result Selection Odds (Decimal) Bet Outcome
Chelsea 2 – 0 Leeds Chelsea To Win 1.5 Win
Fulham 3 – 1 Reading Reading To Lose 1.4 Win

Manchester City 0 – 0 Arsenal Arsenal To Draw 5 Win

Both Ways

This style of an accumulator bet is most common in wagers on horse races. An each-way wager is one on a horse to "win" or "place."

This wager's "to-place" section pays out at 1/4 of the winning odds.

a $5 AU bet A 10AU each-way wager would cost 5AU to win and 5AU to put.

Selection Odds (Fractions) To Place Bet Outcome
1 5/1 1.5 Win
2 7/1 1.4 Placed (3rd)
3 3/1 3 Win
4 12/1 5 Win

  • Selection 2 failed to win, resulting in a loss of the 5 AU$ stakes and 0 AU$ returns, and the to-win portion of the place bet was lost.
  • The odds versus your placing are then incorporated into the "to-place" bet calculation.

Part 2 Profit = Total Returns - Unit Stake = 125.56AU$ Part 2 Returns = 5 A$* ((5 * 1/5) + 1) * ((7 * 1/5) + 1) * ((3 * 1/5) + 1) * ((12 * 1/5) + 1) = 130.56AU$

The results of combining the returns from the two portions together are the overall returns for the bet.

  • Total Profit = Total Returns minus the two 5 stakes = 115.56AU$ 
  • Total Returns = 125.56AU$ + 0AU$ = 125.56AU$
