If you didn’t already know, 888Sport are one of the hottest bookmakers in the industry right now. They have burst onto the scene with a highly detailed and good-looking betting experience, but on top of that have managed to smash one of the best promotions as well… More on that later!

For this article we will be looking at how to place an accumulator bet with 888Sport, including a few tricks that I’ve managed to pick up along the way.

Below is a quick step-by-step guide to show you the basics, and then if you keep scrolling I go into the whole process in more detail.

  2. Log into your account and make sure you have deposited enough money to cover your bet.

I wont spend too long on this for this article, but when you go to register a new account with 888Sport they will give you treble the original odds on your first bet. The best thing about this is that it INCLUDES accumulator bets. T&C’s Apply.

So, if you were to place a 4-fold on the weekend at odds of 10/1, your promotion will then give you odds of 30/1 instead for your first bet. The promotion will pay any winnings in actual money, not free bet. The only real term that you need to remember is the maximum payout for this promo is £5,000.

After you have spent the time to open your account, you are going to need to be able to make your selections for your acca. What I will say at this point is that the following tutorial will not include the treble odds welcome bonus, just for ease.

This will also not include any strategy to making your picks. As you can see, there are dozens of articles to help you with this on site, so feel free to take a look around.

I know the majority of you are going to be looking at football (soccer if you must) as your main sport, so that’s what I will use for this example. You can obviously apply exactly the same strategy to this as with any sport, so feel free.

Making your selections

To make your selections, you need first navigate to some bets. I tend to use the quick links section at the top of the left hand sidebar, as it often has the leagues that I want to bet on. If you cant find what you want from this, then simply scroll a bit further down and you can find ‘Football’ which then gives you dozens of leagues and competitions from around the world.

Once I’ve found what I am looking for, I then tend to narrow this down by market, which is simple to do by just using the ‘Filter’ section (great inclusion from 888Sport by the way) at the top of the page. The ‘Match’ markets are the most popular for acca bets, so that’s what I will use.

The games will be listed in a row, with the odds being highlighted in orange. Once you have decided which games you are going to bet on, simply click on the odds to add them into your bet slip.

You will know they are added as the colour for each bet will change from Orange to Yellow. Click away as you please to add or take away bets. Remember, you can add all sorts of bets from different betting markets if you so wish.

The bet slip is the heart of the acca section and will pop up once you start to add selections in the right hand sidebar.

At the top of the Bet Slip you will need to make sure the ‘Multiples’ tab is highlighted, if it isn’t already. Once this is done the bottom of the slip will include Total Odds, Total Stake and Potential Returns.

If you decide you want to remove a bet from the slip then simply click the ‘X’ at the end of the bet. Alternatively, click on the odds again to de-select and turn back to orange.

Enter your stake in the Total Stake box and this will automatically give you your potential returns from this as well.

Once you are happy with the bet amount and the potential returns, simply clicks the green ‘Place Bet’ button and you are good to go.

Checking your bets

You can check your open bets from the bet slip by simply selecting the ‘Open’ tab at the top of the bet slip. This will list all bets that are currently running.

To check on settled bets, then you will need to open your account information and click the history button to track recent bets.

About Jon

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.


  1. Hey on a recent acca you wrote “Hull v Rotherham – Championship – Hull to win -1.5 Asian Handicap” Does this mean under 1,5 because bets on this returned over 3x back and seems a bit risky to do this on an Acca compared to the over 1,5 which gave 1,27

    • Hi Fred,

      So -1.5 means the number of goals that are removed from their score at full time for the handicap. In Layman’s terms, it means that they need to win by two or more goals for this selection to be successful.

      Hope that helps

      • Thanks for the reply not sure where to adress you so i do it all over 😀 I was wondering if you always put 10 pounds on your accas and if that is the case why you wont up scale it when you can see that you earn money on them year after year.
