An accumulator bonus is a bookmaker’s special promotion that offers enhanced odds should the acca win.
Unlike an acca boost, which is similar but only occurs once an acca bet has been made, an accumulator bonus has set betting requirements highlighted prior to placing the bet, so the punter always knows what is required in order to receive a bonus. Some accumulator bonus offers to look out for include bonuses only on pre-match betting.
The amount of bonus received is proportionate to the number of bets placed inside the punters acca. The more bets, the higher the acca bonus and the better return value received should your acca be a winner.
An example of receiving an accumulator bonus in sports betting would be to place a pre-match four-fold accumulator on football games in the Premier League.
By making the accumulator consist of four single bets merged together, the chance of gaining a bonus would be higher with the bookmaker determining the percentage increase the punter is to receive on their four chosen selections.
This could be as much as a 50% additional bonus pay out on top of the winnings subject to that particular bookmaker’s promotion and the four-fold accumulator being successful.
It is important to look for these bonuses when looking to make an accumulator bet as different bookies offer different promotions.
Bookmakers are constantly running accumulator bonuses to entice new punters to try them out.
This means some pretty good deals can be snapped up if you are prepared to shop around. This is well worth doing as the bonuses on offer can seriously improve winnings, sometimes by up to 50% on a standard accumulator bet.
