An accumulator is a bet that combines four or more selections into a single wager that gains a return only when all parts win.
The attraction to accumulators is, for many people, two-fold.
Firstly, the advantage of an accumulator is that winnings are much higher. The combination of four or more different selections means that all the different odds get combined, creating the potential for some remarkable wins and odds that are very difficult to find on standard match betting.
Secondly, the excitement of having an interest in the outcome of so many different games happening on the same day at the same time is immense. With so many games taking place around the country on a Saturday during the football season there are plenty of matches to chose from to include in your accumulator. By including some run-of-the-mill, lower league contests in your accumulator you turn those lower league matches into crucial games as far as your potential winnings are concerned.
The thrill of having a crucial goal seal your accumulator at the far last moment is difficult to match when it comes to betting on sport. Placing accumulators has become part of football culture in England, the excitement can be unbearable.
