I wanted to lay out all the accumulator betting options that are available to you from online bookmakers. There are some very interesting alternatives to the standard all or nothing acca.
There are 13 types of accumulator bets.
The different accumulator bets are available up to 8 selections and certain number of bets offer multiple options. For example, adding 4 selections to your betslip will give you 5 different accumulator betting options.
Let’s go over them all one by one so you know your options.
