Accumulator Bets Explained

Accumulator Bets Explained

Perhaps the most popular of the multiple bets, an accumulator bet combines three or more selections in a single wager. This means that to get a return, you’ll need all of the selections in this bet to be winning ones. We have accumulator tips on site each day, to help you determine who you should have in your multiples.

What is an accumulator?

In short, an accumulator is a bet that has three or more legs. In horse racing terms, an accumulator would have three or more horses from different races combined into one bet. Each of those horses would need to win to return a profit, as one losing leg will bring down the entire accumulator.

How can I get a return from an accumulator?

Accumulator tips tend to give the biggest returns in terms of a multiple as you’ll need each of the selections to win to make a profit. Of course, this means it’s perhaps the most risky of the bet types, as you can have six winning selections, all for the final one to lose and wipe out all your potential returns. For this reason, many will cover their bets with singles, doubles or trebles of the same selections so they can at least gain a profit if one of the runners fails to score.

Why are accumulators so popular?

What makes accumulator bets so popular is the prospect of bigger returns and the chance of having their “life changing bet”. With only small stakes needed for a big return, it’s also an easy way to get enjoyment out of watching the racing without the need to spend big.

For example, if you’re betting across the card on selections of 5/2,11/4, 9/4, 9/2, 7/2 and 3/1 selections, a £1 stake would return you a whopping £4,221. It’s the promise of such a big return that makes accumulators one of the most popular and well-known bets.

We offer two daily accumulator tips at myracing, with our standard accumulator and our mega accumulator! The accumulator is usually comprised of three or four selections, with our mega accumulator incorporating some bigger prices to boost the returns for the more adventurous punter! When there is plenty of evening action, we will sometimes offer an evening accumulator and if the prices are right on the ITV racing days, the same can be expected.

How do you bet an accumulator?

  1. Select which horses you want to add to your accumulator. You can do this through your own research, or using our tips.
  2. Next, you’ll need to get your bet set up. If you’re online, you can add each horse into the bet slip. If you’re in shop, then write down each race and the selection, followed by the next, until you have all selections noted.
  3. Finally, your stake. Accumulators tend to yield the highest returns of any bet so betting higher stakes isn’t usually necessary.
