When I first started placing accumulator bets – many moons ago – one thing I neglected was looking for acca specific promotions.
These days, it’s one of the main points that makes or breaks a bookmaker for me and whether I use (or promote) said bookmaker.
Pretty much all the bookmakers that I work closely with offer up a wide range of promotions that are specific to accumulator (or at least football) betting.
Granted, a lot of them can range quite dramatically in terms of value, but some are simply so good that you can’t afford to miss out.
The list below includes the best football accumulator promotions that are currently kicking about. But, bear in mind that promotions come and go in the betting industry, so it might be worth sticking a bookmark on this page which I will keep updated as and when they do.
BetVictor – £25 Free bet for new accounts
At BetVictor you can claim a no fuss free bet worth up to £25 when you open a new account.
It’s one of the simplest offers to claim and all you need to do is click this dedicated link to be taken to the BetVictor site and complete a registration form, which takes less than 2 minutes.
I’ve gone into much more detail about the whole sign up process and how to claim your free bet in this article.
Alternatively, you can keep reading to see some of their more acca friendly promotions.
BetVictor’s Back of the Net promotion will appease customers who are betting on the Both Teams To Score market. They will actually refund your bet, up to £25, if one your 5-fold or more selections from the BTTS market lose.
You will only be allowed to claim one of these promotions a day and qualifying accumulators must only included selections from the Both Teams To Score market.
Whilst not essentially a promotion, it’s worth noting that BetVictor offer some of the most competitive odds in the industry. In fact, don’t just take my word for it, as this was actually complied and published by Oddschecker.com, an independent odds comparison site.
Just as a final point, you can often find enhanced odds acca bets with BetVictor for new customers. These range and are often only open for a few hours, so you need to be quick.
An example might be something like, get 5/1 on England, Germany and Brazil all to win when you register a new account (non-promotion price 7/4).
Paddy Power – Risk free bet up to £20
The opening offer is pretty self explanatory from Paddy Power.
You get a £20 risk free bet when you register a new account (New Customers Only.18+. T&Cs Apply) and place your first bet of just £10 or more.
If you’d like to find out more information on how this works then I’ve written an article explaining exactly what you need to do to open an account and claim your free bet.
Paddy Power offer up a cracking promotion for acca bets which allows you to claim a 20% bonus on 4-folds or greater from bets in the Win-Draw-Win and BTTS market.
There are no restrictions on which football matches can be included on the bet with the max you can claim topping £1,000. Bonuses are based on your profits from the bet and will be credited within 24 hours.
Finally, similarly to BetVictor, they offer a number of enhanced acca prices for their punters, which is always worth checking out. These change daily, but are often great value.
Betfred are offering one of the more lucrative welcome bonuses in the industry at the minute.
Not only can you claim double the odds on your first bet at the site, but with your second bet, they will match this bet up to £25 and plonk it straight into your account for you to use as a free bet.
Unfortunately, Betfred aren’t currently running any acca specific betting promotions at the minute. But, they do include so wicked good value football promotions, so I decided to include them anyway.
The Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven offer is something they’ve been running for some time now, and it seems to be as popular as ever.
It’s a simple process; if you back a player to be first goal scorer and they oblige, but then go on to score a second, Betfred will double the original price. If they score a third, they will triple that price.
Betfred also have their 1-A-Piece offer as well, which refunds bets on matches that are televised and finish 1-1. This includes Sky Sports, BT Sport, ITV, BBC and ESPN.
Sky Bet – Bet £5 and get £20 worth of free bets
A very tidy offer from Sky Bet in that when you register an account you can get a free bet worth up to £20 when you deposit and place your first bet of just £5.
It works out at a sizable 400% match on your first deposit, which is as good as you’re going to find in the sports betting industry to be honest.
If you want to find out more about this offer and how you can register an account with Sky Bet, then check out my in-depth article on Sky Bet, which will tell you all you need to know.
The Super 6 promotion is probably, in all fairness, more a novelty feature than anything, but it does give you the chance to win a staggering £250,000, which I guess makes it fair amount more serious.
The game requires you to select the correct score from 6 selected 3pm kick offs on a Saturday afternoon (usually taken from the English Premier League, where possible). If you guess the correct score for each game then you win the jackpot, but you still gain points for correct results, which have a chance of winning £5,000 cash.
You can also claim a free £5 bet every week from Sky Bet. This requires you to place an acca or any type of bet for that matter worth £25 or more every week, before a £5 free bet gets credited to your account.
You must place your bets before midnight on Sunday to qualify and the free bet will be in your account by 7pm Monday. If you miss a week, then you need to wager £40 to get back into the club.
William Hill – £25 free bet when registering a new account
New users to William Hill can enjoy a free bet worth up to £25. It’s a pretty simple 100% match on your first deposit and wager from £5 up to £25.
I’m not going to go into too much detail about the free bet here, but if you want to find out more I’ve written a comprehensive article on how to register and account and claim your free bet or just dive straight in by clicking this link.
William Hill provide a nice little acca insurance offer where if one team of your 6-fold+ lets you down, they will reimburse your bet, up to £50.
One of the best things about it is that it counts for every football match they offer on site but, it only includes the Win-Draw-Win market and other markets such as BTTS and Correct score markets, will not count.
Not acca related, but William hill also offer two more football betting promotions.
The first is a money back as a free bet offer, which is triggered if your first goal scorer bet doesn’t actually net first, but grabs the second. For this, they will refund your bet worth up to £50.
The second is there popular bore draw insurance, where if your game finishes 0-0, William Hill will refund bets on the correct score and double results market up to £50.
Just before I let you go, it’s worth noting that this page will often be changed and edited to reflect the promotions that are taking place at the time of writing.
The majority of these will be around for the foreseeable future, but if they do alter, I will alter this post. If you see any that aren’t promoted or ones that I may have missed, then feel free to leave me a comment below.
