What is an Acca Boost?
An acca boost is the same as the standard accumulator, only with the bookmaker boosting the value of the bet, often up to 20%, as a special offer to attract punters to use their service.
Bookmakers are often quite imaginative with their acca boost offerings but there are usually a number of stipulations that call for wagering requirements to be met, and the boost only attributed to winnings and not the stake.
It is important to note that an acca boost is often offered prior to the bet being made and usually requires a three-fold accumulator minimum in order to qualify.
How is Acca Boost used in Sports Betting?
As mentioned above, in order to qualify for an acca boost, a wagering requirement must be met with a pyramid system in place meaning the more bets added to the accumulator, the higher the percentage of boost.
For example, a simple boost offering would be to back a three-fold accumulator for a boost to winnings of 5%. By adding a fourth bet to the accumulator, the boost would grow to 10% and a five-fold accumulator could equal a 20% boost.
It is important to understand the specific terms and conditions of each bookmaker’s boost offerings as they will all differ and a number of sports may be eligible. Most boosts are only paid when the bet has been settled, and boosts can be voided if the bet is cashed out early.
