As bettors, we all love value. We get the value from the odds so, if I was to tell you there is an easy way to boost your odds, you would want to know about it right?
Well it’s true and available right now at certain online bookies. You can simply hit an odds boost button when you have your acca selections in your betslip. Bada bing bada boom, you have bigger odds and bigger potential payout.
Let me go in to more detail and tell you how it all works and which bookies offer acca odds boosts.
What is an Acca Odds Boost?
Acca odds boosts or just odds boosts are a promotion from bookmakers that increase the price (odds) of your bet. Normally this applies to acca bets with 3 or more selections but it can be available to single bets as well.
Seasoned punters will fully understand the huge benefit this has and it’s why this promotion is so successful and popular.
Here is a quick example; Let’s say you put the following 4 teams in your betslip and you wanted to bet them as an acca.
£10 Bet Returns £256
Acca with Odds Boost
£10 Bet Returns £290
So the exact same acca with an acca boost gives you a massive £34 extra potential return!!
I used William Hill for this example as they are consistently one of the best priced bookies if using their acca boost.
Bookmakers with Acca Odds Boosts
William Hill Acca Boost – How To Claim
William Hill have been offering their daily acca boost for just over a year now. It’s probably the main reason why they have become one of my top bookies. The odds boost nearly always brings my acca return up by £30-£40 and that means it’s hard for bookies to price match.
As with any offer there are T&C’s but trust me, there are no catches with this offer.
Let me show you just how easy it is to claim William Hill’s acca boost.
Step 1 – Add 3 or more selections to your betslip.
Step 2 – Enter your stake in the box above your selections. That is the Accumulator bet with the option for an Acca Boost.
Step 3 – Hit the ‘Boost’ button and watch your odds and potential return increase!
As you can see, they don’t make this hard for you to claim. it’s pretty much encouraged. If you follow my tips or are conscious about making the most from your winning accas, you have to check an odds boost every time you bet. It can literally be the difference of profit and loss come the end of a season.
Ladbrokes Acca Boost – How To Claim
Ladbrokes push their acca boost or should i say ‘ACCA BOOSTY’ pretty hard! You will see it on TV and hear on radio adverts, they are really shouting about it to tempt punters to bet their acca’s with them.
I should point out that Ladbrokes acca boost isn’t as good as William Hill. I say this because they only give you the boost on 5 or more selections. Will Hill generously gives you the boost on 3+ selections.
They also restrict the qualifying markets to these 5+ Match Result, Both Teams to Score, Match Result and Both Teams to Score, Correct Score and Total Goals Over/Under. So, it’s worth remembering this when you are building your acca. Best not to use Ladbrokes if you want to throw in Double Chance for example.
OK, let me show you have to claim your acca boost with Ladbrokes;
Step 1 – Add 5 or more selections to your betslip.
Step 2 – Scroll back up to the top of the betslip. for reason it drops you to the bottom but the acca boost button is at the top. It’s especially noticeable on mobile so watch out for that.
Step 3 – Hit the boost as shown above. Then scroll down and enter your stake. You will see your increased potential winnings as soon as you enter your stake. See my example below;
As you can see in this example, you are getting a whopping £50+ extra just for hitting the button. Bookies who are not offering this will rarely be better priced.
Will Acca Boosts be here to stay?
I strongly believe they will not only stick around but also become a whole lot more popular. There is currently only two bookmakers that are offering these to players on a daily basis.
The reason bookies can offer an odds boosts on acca’s is due to their chances of coming in. It’s a well known fact that accumulator bets are the highest returning bets for bookmakers. This is down to the number of results that are required to win, the more you have the harder it is to win.
William Hill recently tried a daily option for punters by giving them a choice of Acca Insurance or an Acca Boost when they went to place an acca. I thought this was a game changer and hoped it would remain but it didn’t last long. I would pretty much always choose an odds boost though as increasing my returns is far more appealing than getting my stake back.
Ladbrokes actually do offer both offers on the same acca! Now that is an offer not to miss. It is restrictive on the betting markets but if you stick to win draw win, BTTS and Over/Under 2.5 goals you can get it.
I hope this gave you a good insight in to the benefits of using Acca Boosts and it assists you in maximising your potential returns.
