Football Accumulator Bets Explained

Multiple Bets – The Accumulator

An ‘accumulator’ bet is one of the most common football wagers made by punters.

An ‘accumulator’ is a single bet that links together two or more individual wagers and is dependent on all of those bets winning together. The benefit of an ‘accumulator’ bet is that there are much higher payoffs than placing each individual bet separately although the likelihood of all the selections winning is much lower.

Accumulator bets can be made on a variety of sports or events or even a combination of different sports/events. You can include a large number of selections in your accumulator bet if you wish.

Popular ‘accumulator’ bets are:

Double - A double is a single bet placed on 2 different selections to win. Both selections must be correct for the bet to be successful.

Treble – A treble is a single bet placed on 3 different selections. All 3 selections must be correct for the bet to be successful.

Fourfold – A fourfold is a single bet placed on 4 different selections. All 4 selections must be correct for the bet to be successful.

In all the examples above, if just one of your selections is not correct, your payout will be zero.


Stoke v Liverpool – Stoke 9/2, draw 11/4, Liverpool 8/13

Blackburn v Tottenham – Blackburn 19/10, draw 23/10, Tottenham 7/5

Real Madrid v Real Zaragoza – Real Madrid 1/6, draw 5/1, Real Zaragoza 12/1

You place £10 on Liverpool, Blackburn and Real Madrid to win. If those three teams win, you receive a payout of £44.65 plus a return of your £10 stake. If one of these teams fails to win, your payout would be zero.

Had you placed £3.33 on each of the matches individually (a £10 total stake) your total winnings would only have been £9.26 plus a return of your £10 total stake. However, if one team had failed to win, you would still have received a payout on your other bets.

It couldn’t be easier to place an accumulator bet. Simply make all of your selections and then enter your desired stake in the ‘double’, ‘treble’ or ‘accumulator’ stakebox on your betslip, depending on the number of selections you have made.
