For those betting customers that enjoy placing accumulators, it’s likely that you will have experienced that winning feeling along with the sensation of hitting the post with your football acca. Indeed, there’s nothing worse that one leg of your footy accumulator letting you down when all the other selections have won.
The good news is that an increasing number of bookmakers are now offering customers Acca Insurance which is a great promotion and often allows you to claim money back on your multiple wagers. It’s essentially a safety net if your bet gets close to winning but narrowly fails and it’s especially good if the last leg of your acca lets you down.
Acca Insurance is available with various bookies and requires customers to place an accumulator bet with a certain number of selections. This number is usually five or more and each selection might have to be at certain odds such as 1/2 or 1/5.
You can then cheer on your acca and hope that the bet wins. However, let’s say one of your five selections lets you down, then the Acca Insurance kicks in and you can enjoy money back either as cash or as a free bet. There’s usually a maximum amount you can claim back although it’s still nice to get compensation for a near-miss.
What Sports Are Available for Acca Insurance?
The vast majority of punters enjoy Acca Insurance for their football accumulators considering this is the most popular betting sport, although some bookies actually roll out Acca Insurance for other sports such as tennis and basketball. It might be that a bookmaker includes all sports providing that you meet the minimum number of selections and the odds requirement.
When you win with an accumulator, you can expect a payout within a few minutes, although the Acca Insurance might not be credited until 24 hours or even 48 hours. However, providing that you qualify, the funds will return to your account within a short space of time and you can then start betting again.
Acca Insurance generally applies to pre-event accumulator bets, although some bookies might allow you to enjoy this promotion for In-Play accas instead. Please note that if you Cash Out of your bet In-Play, then you might lose the chance to enjoy any kind of insurance, even if it’s a Partial Cash Out.
