How to Write a Betting Slip Accumulator

Placing an accumulator is a great option for people to gain a maximum payout from placing a small bet.

Accumulators are available to place on a range of sports while multiple betting options and results can be covered as opposed to selecting lots of single bets on various games or events.

Choosing an accumulator also carries plenty of entertainment value too as every result chosen on the betting slip must come in for an accumulator to payout. There is an element of risk involved in this as one incorrect result leads to the entire bet collapsing, but this adds the excitement which a single bet doesn’t provide. Also, if the entire accumulator hinges on a single match or event, then the excitement rises again.

With the modern shift to online betting, placing an accumulator has become quicker and easier than ever. Completing a betting slip accumulator takes seconds and multiple bets can be placed with only a few clicks on a computer or mobile app.

How to Write a Betting Slip Accumulator

The process of writing a betting slip for an accumulator is very similar across all sports. People placing the bets are essentially choosing wager on multiple games, competitions, or event but under one single bet.  When completing a betting accumulator, check out 888Sports’ handy online betting guide which provides an in-depth explanation about accumulators and how to place these bets.

When you have chosen the sport, competition etc. you wish to place an accumulator on, you will need to choose the teams, players, or participants who you think will win. Some sports, such as football, rugby, and cricket, also allow people to include draws within their accumulator.

In a football accumulator, for instance, a player would first choose the competition they want to bet on, which can be usually be found easily by using the sidebar on a betting website. If this was the Premier League, a player could look through the upcoming fixtures, odds, and favourites for a particular gameweek.

Odds are only given for teams to win or draw for a football accumulator and players can click on the team they think will win or select a draw. Once chosen, this selection will be added to an online betting slip. The virtual betting slip will appear on screen showing both the individual odds of each fixture and the combined total odds of the accumulator underneath.

Players can select results across different competitions for an accumulator. For example, when betting on football, someone could select three fixtures from the Premier League, two from the Championship, and one from League One, which would all count towards the combined payout of the accumulator. This also works if fixtures take place across different days as players could select one fixture from Friday, two from Saturday, and one from Sunday. But, if the outcome for the Friday game is incorrect, the rest of the accumulator collapses and becomes worthless.

Accumulators must have two or more selections to count as an accumulative bet. As more outcomes are added to a betting slip, the total odds on the slip will increase. If the favourites for a particular match are chosen then the overall odds will remain fairly low, whereas, if some outsiders are added to the betting slip, the odds will start to increase.

Many fixtures can be selected for a combined accumulator bet – a player could essentially bet on all 10 Premier League fixtures one week. But the more events that are placed on an accumulator betting slip, the slimmer the chancers are of all games producing.

Once you have chosen all of the matches you want to include in an accumulator, you can then decide how much you want wager on the betting slip. Options for single and combination are available. Single betting is not an accumulator and just allows players to bet on each game individually as opposed to distributing the bet across all matches. Select combination for an accumulator, which allows you to place a single wager across all fixtures. There are usually no limits on how much to place on an accumulator betting slip. However, some betting providers may not offer bets to be place over a certain amount.

Before an accumulator is confirmed, the final odds will be displayed at the bottom of the betting slip. Players can then decide how much to place on the bet. When an amount is entered into the betting slip, the total amount that will be paid out is calculated through the odds provided and displayed before the bet is submitted by the player. This allows players to see how much can potentially be gained from the accumulator bet – the higher the amount placed, the larger the payout.
