Compound Bets

Compound bets are structured with multiple accumulators which can include up to 20 selections. This is known as a ‘20-fold,’ or a ‘Reverse Combo’ as it pays out the same as a 20-fold accumulator. Compound bets can offer much higher pay out due to the increased risk. Generally, if any of the events in one of the accumulators lose the whole lot will be lost, however if one of the accumulators come in as a winner the stake will be carried over to the next accumulator.

Banker Bets

Banker bets are one of the most popular forms of accumulator bets in football. A banker bet is when punters add an extra selection to the accumulator that they are much more confident of winning. The extra selection will increase the odds (but only slightly) but will greatly enhance the chances of the bet being successful.

Advantage Bets

Advantage bets are accumulators that are put together to ensure the bet loses as little money as possible if one or more of the selections lose. In essence, the bet combines a combination of small and large stakes, ensuring that if one selection loses, the losses will be outweighed by the wins of the other selections.
