Best Accumulator Promotions for the 2020/21 Football Season

The 2020/21 football season is about to kick off and I’m seriously excited about a brand new campaign and a whole world of fresh betting opportunities. I’m sure you’re the same.

Article updated 2021 – Advertisement

At the start of every season, the leading bookies in the land roll out the red carpet in a bid to attract new and existing customers and I’m delighted to see a wide range of promotions that are going to massively appeal to accumulator backers.

To save you time and having to shop around the various bookmaker websites to suss out the most attractive acca bonuses and money back specials, I’ve put together this article with a rundown of what’s currently available and how you can benefit from each offer. Enjoy reading and happy punting.

Acca Offers 2020/21 Season

Bookmaker: William Hill
Promotion: Acca Freedom

How it Works

Chapeau to William Hill who have a brand new accumulator bonus offer for the new football season. This is going to be right up the street of anyone who enjoys placing a footy acca and you have the choice to either BOOST your multiple bet odds or alternatively INSURE your accumulator in case one leg lets you down. Which option will YOU choose?

In order to qualify for any Bet Boost to your multiple bet, you need to make at least three selections.

In order to trigger your Acca Insurance, you need to make at least five selections.

Let’s say you pick out the following teams for your weekend accumulator:

  • Arsenal
  • Southampton
  • Liverpool
  • West Ham
  • Leicester

Having five selections in your acca means that you are eligible for Bet Boost or Acca Insurance depending on whether you want to be aggressive with this offer or alternatively play things a little safer.

Your William Hill bet slip will look like this:

You will see that we have our five selections populating the bet slip and this accumulator currently pays 20/1. You will also notice that there’s an option which says “Rewards available to apply” and that provides the following:

acca freedom

All of a sudden, there’s the option to get an accumulator boost from 20/1 to 22.55/1 which is a pretty healthy increase. We can either choose to apply this to our betting slip or alternatively you can plump for the Acca Insurance option and get money back as a free bet up to £20 if one of the selections lets you down.

Acca Freedom is the first offer of its kind and we salute William Hill for coming up with a multi-faceted accumulator promotion which gives customers the chance to boost their acca or insure it depending on how they’re feeling.

Bookmaker: bet365
Promotion: Soccer Accumulator Bonus

How it Works

I like bet365 and I cannot lie! They’ve recently revamped their desktop betting site and made a fantastic product even better, while a visit to their “Offers” section unlocks a wide range of promotions which cover several sports and that includes that generous accumulator bonus offer where you can get extra winnings on your football accas.

The difference between a bet365 acca bonus and a William Hill one is that the former allows you to get a bigger bonus if you win with more selections in your acca. For example, a winning treble will mean 5% is added to your winnings, although a successful five-fold would see this bookie add a 12% bonus on top of your winnings.

Let’s revert back to the same five teams we used for our William Hill Acca Freedom offer:

  • Arsenal
  • Southampton
  • Liverpool
  • West Ham
  • Leicester

With bet365, this accumulator currently pays 18.43/1 as per the below screengrab:

Let’s say I go ahead and place a £5 accumulator on the above Premier League football selections that form part of a five-fold acca to give me the following bet:

You will see that I’ve got my £97.19 that is going to be returned if all five teams win their respective matches. Underneath, you will also see that I have an £11.66 bonus on the table as part of a 12% promotion due to the fact that I have selected five teams in my acca.

Should you want to land an even bigger accumulator bonus, there’s the opportunity to secure an incredible 70% bonus on your footy acca although going for that is not for the faint-hearted! That’s because you need to secure a winning 14-fold or bigger in order to land yourself that maximum bonus.

Bet365’s accumulator bonus offer is available on the leading football competitions around the world, although punters should make sure that they choose from Full Time Result, Both Teams To Score or Result/Both Teams To Score markets in order to qualify.

Bookmaker: Betfred
Promotion: Acca Insurance

How it Works

Betfred are back in the game with their Acca Insurance promotion and it’s a perfectly reasonable promotion which ultimately allows customers to get money back when it comes to their football accumulators providing that the selections refer to the leading football divisions such as English Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Spanish La Liga.

Please note that every selection in your acca needs to be 1/3 or bigger in order to get the Acca Insurance. Each accumulator leg must also be a Full-Time Result selection so you’re either betting on the home team, draw or away team as part of the 1×2 market.

If you therefore place a five-fold accumulator or bigger and one leg lets you down, Betfred will give you money back as a free bet up to £10. Let’s say you placed a £10 accumulator on the following selections:

Manchester United 1/2
Chelsea 4/7
West Ham 11/10
Sheffield United 6/4
Huddersfield 11/8

The first four teams all manage to win although Huddersfield are the victim of a late equaliser which means that your footy acca doesn’t cop! However, your £10 acca stake is returned as a free £10 bet and this can be used for another accumulator wager.

Best Acca Bookies

Bookmaker: Paddy Power – link removed 13th Jan 2023
Promotion: Acca Insurance

How it Works

Paddy Power are known as the kings of the money back special and there’s everything to like about an offer which means customers will get a free bet if one leg of your accumulator or same-game multi lets you down. We especially like the fact that you can get a refund on a same-game multi and they’re the only bookie who currently does this.

We also like the fact that Paddy apply this offer to ALL sports and to ALL markets so there really aren’t many restrictions. You can claim a free bet up to £10 on a daily basis and you simply need to make sure that each selection of your multiple bet is at least 1/5 or bigger.

Let’s say you put together the following Champions League acca for a £10 stake:

  • Real Madrid
  • Bayern Munich
  • Juventus
  • Liverpool

The first three teams do the business although Liverpool end up falling short and that means that the Acca Insurance is triggered. You will receive a £10 free bet by midday the following day and you can once again go ahead and place an acca to potentially qualify for the Acca Insurance all over again.

Bookmaker: Ladbrokes
Promotion: Boost, Insure, Track and Edit Your Acca

How it Works

Ladbrokes have officially come to the 2020/21 football season party with an accumulator promotion which means you can decide how to benefit when you go ahead and place a football acca on a regular basis.

The Magic Sign essentially give you four different ways to approach the serious business of placing accumulator bets, starting with an Acca Boost and it’s a simple case of looking for the Odds Boost button in your bet slip and deciding to give your multiple bet a super turbo boost in a bid to get the biggest possible odds.

Alternatively, there might be times where you seek a little bit of insurance with your footy acca, especially if you’ve added one or two risky selections. Right now you can get money back as a free bet up to £10 if one leg of your accumulator lets you down and you’re required to include at least five selections in order to benefit from this offer.

The good news is that money back on accas refers to the Match Result, Both Teams to Score, Match Result and Both Teams to Score, Correct Score and Total Goals Over/Under markets, so you’ve got a wide range of choice with Ladbrokes and that’s a definite tick in the box for this bookie.

In addition, Ladbrokes allow customers to track and edit their acca, something that is going to appeal to those who want to tinker with their multiple bets along the way. Indeed, editing your football accumulator effectively means that you can remove those pesky losing selections and place a brand new acca in a bid to try and land a winner next time around.

I've made What Acca to try and help people starting out with accumulator betting. The possibilities of these types of bets are pretty much endless, with the major attraction coming from the fact that a lot of money can be won for very little outlay. What Acca will hopefully teach you how to make more profitable accumulator bets whilst also eradicating some of the mistakes that I have made over the years.
