What is Acca Insurance?
Usually referred to as ‘acca insurance’, this promotion offers money back if your bet loses by just one leg. Generally, this is paid as a free bet rather than in cash, but occasionally it is further rewarded.
Because of a growing popularity in accumulator bets, most bookmakers have now begun to offer money back offers on losing accas. So if that dreaded last minute goal messes your £25 accumulator up now, bookies will reward you with a free bet worth the same value as your original stake (£25 in this case) whilst you lick your wounds.
This offer is open to both new and existing customers with the majority of bookmakers. You can sign up with plenty of bookmakers from our selection and take advantage of their free bet offers.
We’ve all suffered the heartache of a last gasp equaliser ruining a money-spinning accumulator, but times have changed in the word of football betting. This is thanks to a new phenomenon that has taken the industry by storm, the Cash Out button.
First pioneered by Betfair in 2013, it didn’t take long for other bookmakers to follow suit and now most leading UK sportsbook operators offer cash out betting accumulators because they give punters the opportunity to lock in their profits or trim their losses without waiting for the final whistle.
There are many advantages and disadvantages when choosing whether or not to cash out, even if it does feel like a lifesaver at times. Before choosing to hit that all important button be sure to weigh up the following:
How do I claim Acca Insurance?
Simple really – place your acca with any of the bookmakers we have written about and offer acca insurance to their customers, and if one side lets your acca down, you will be rewarded with a free bet of the same value stake.
Be sure to check out the terms and conditions beforehand as most companies will ensure your acca has at least four or five selections in it to qualify and a max stake could be in place. Certain leagues also won’t qualify, while some companies will just do this for football bets. Winner Sports, for example, apply this to tennis and American sports acca’s too.
Cash out betting is offered by bookies across a wide range of different sports and events. The option is normally made available on both singles and accumulators. Soon after the match has started the service will let you know how much you can cash out for at different stages in the game, providing your selection(s) is winning. In order to illustrate this point follow the example below:
Let’s assume that you placed a £10 wager on the home team to win during a televised match. The odds for the home team are 2/1. This means you will bag £30 if the home team win provided you see your bet out right through to the end. However, If you decide to cash out at half time when the home team are winning 1-0, you may be offered a cash out sum of around £18 meaning that if you were to take the offer you would make an immediate profit of £8 and the result of the match would become irrelevant thereafter. Taking this into account you can see why it can often feel like a lifesaver at times.
