How do I win football accumulators?
This is of course the golden question! How can you win a football accumulator?
The answer is simple in practice, you just pick a number of winning selections and combine them in one bet. These selections can be teams to win, over or under a certain amount of goals or both teams to score. You can add virtually anything to an accumulator these days, including combinations of different markets.
Getting your selections correct and winning the accumulator is the hard bit. We have a number of football accumulator tips to help with picking your selections, some of these are included in the list below.
How do I place an accumulator bet?
Placing an accumulator bet is easy. Simply go to your betting website or app of choice* and add multiple selections to your betslip.
You will then be given the option, where available, to place an accumulator on all of the selections. If you are not given the option, it usually means some of the selections you have made can’t be combined. You cannot combine two selections from the same event in the same accumulator: for example you are not able to add a goalscorer selection and a result selection from the same game.

Can you mix different sports in one accumulator?
Yes, the majority of bookmakers allow you to mix different sports into one accumulator.
This means you can possibly bet on a football team, a boxer and a horse all in one bet, for example. You can also mix different markets on the same sport in a single accumulator, providing they are different events or matches. You could bet on both teams to score in some games and the match result of other games in one accumulator.
How are football accumulators calculated?
A football accumulator is calculated by multiplying the odds of all the selections within your bet.
Here’s an example: If you place a £10 fourfold accumulator with the following odds – 2/1, 1/1, 1/3, and 4/1, you would get a total return of £400, including your initial stake. Your bookmaker should show you the odds and the potential returns of your accumulator before you place it so there’s no need to do your own maths!
Do football accumulators include extra time?
Most of the time when you’re placing a football accumulator, you’re betting on the match result only.
That means that in situations where extra time and penalties are possible, it’s only the score after 90 minutes that will count and not extra time. You can, however, bet on which team will qualify or lift the trophy and these markets do take into account extra time. Be careful which type of bet you place when extra time is involved.
What happens to my accumulator if a match is abandoned?
In the majority of situations when a match is abandoned that leg of the accumulator will be voided and will act like it doesn’t exist.
Therefore if you place a fourfold and one game gets abandoned it will become a treble and you will be paid out on the remaining legs if your bet ends up winning. Betting sites may vary when it comes to settling an accumulator when 1 or more of the matches are abandoned or postponed so please check with your bookmaker of choice for full details.
What is the maximum payout on a football accumulator?
Every site has a different limit to how much they will pay out on a football accumulator so be sure to check with your bookmaker if you need to know.
With most major sites the maximum payout is £500,000 or more. If you’re lucky enough to be concerned about these maximum payout limits then congratulations! Some of the biggest acca wins ever seen include a 30p bet that earned a lucky punter half a million and a 20-fold accumulator that came in for another lucky so and so in 2016!
