Which Are The Best Bookmakers For Accumulator Refund Offers?
Accumulator refunds offers are a very popular among bookmakers with over 10 bookmakers providing them.
Each bookmaker has their own specific terms, most notably around:
- Minimum odds per team - usually none, 1.2 or 1.3
- Minimum number of teams - usually 5 or 6 teams
- Maximum refund - usually £10, £25 or £50
- Refunds per day - usually 1 per day
- Eligible leagues - usually major European leagues and cups
In this article, I will explain what terms we are wanting, alongside a current list of offers just to help show you the range of offers available (for a 100% accurate and up to date list of offers, please use OddsMonkey).
Bookmaker Terms - What Makes A Great Acca Offer?
Minimum Odds Per Team
As explained in Football Accumulator Refunds Explained article, the lower our average back odds, the more profit you will make. Ideally you are looking for average odds of 1.3 or lower.
No Minimum Odds - Excellent
A handful of bookmakers offer no minimum odds for a team, which is excellent for us. This means you can choose a huge favourite, such as Real Madrid home to a very weak Spanish team.
1.2 Minimum Odds - Fine
Most bookmakers offer 1.2 minimum odds, which rules out the lowest odds teams, but these offers are still comfortably profitable.
1.3 Minimum Odds - Harder
Some bookmakers offer 1.3 minimum odds, which makes it harder for us to find a profitable accumulator, but if there are enough teams playing in a weekend with odds between 1.3 and 1.4 then we're okay!
Alternatively, some bookmakers will offer minimum accumulated odds, for example minimum accumulated odds of 4.0. For example, if we had 5 teams all with 1.3 odds, this would give us 1.3 x 1.3 x 1.3 x 1.3 x 1.3 = 3.71 odds, so we would need to choose at least one team with odds of 1.4, which gives us 4.0 accumulated odds.
Minimum Teams Per Acca
Most bookmakers state 5 teams are needed for your accumulator whilst a handful state 6 teams are needed.
The downside of having to add a 6th team to your accumulator is it increases the total odds, which makes your accumulator less profitable.
However, 6 team accumulators can still be very profitable but you would definitely need no minimum odds, or at most 1.2 minimum odds.
Most bookmakers state £25 as the maximum refund, though Paddy Power offer £50 as the maximum refund.
The benefit of a £50 accumulator is simply you can make double the profit though this can be a bit tricky on Paddy Power as the odds aren't competitive!
Number Of Refunds Per Day
Most bookmakers state 1 refund per day.
It's important to note that 'per day' usually means that a refund is added the day after the last match has settled (even if the accumulator lost days earlier due to the first match losing).
A few bookmakers offer more than 1 per day, such as Paddy Power who offer up to 4 refunds per day.
Eligible Leagues and Cups
Almost all bookmakers all you to use teams from the Premier League and major European Leagues. Personally I stick to these, whilst some bookmakers will allow teams from lesser leagues (e.g. South America), I try not to use these, just to ensure I keep my recreational customer profile.
Whilst this isn't a term, it is worth adding that the larger bookmakers typically have the best odds.
For example, BetVictor, Betfred and William Hill typically have very good odds.
This means the odds between the bookmaker and the exchange are closer, which makes the accumulator more profitable as mentioned in Football Accumulator Refunds Explained.
Bookmaker Terms - Table Of Offers
However I wanted to show you my favourite 10 bookmaker offers available at the time of writing (August 2017):
Whilst a small bookmaker, there is positive feedback in OddsMonkey so I can't see any issues. Though I'd be withdrawing after a big acca win than leaving it in the account just to be safe!
As of the 1st September, all 5 teams must play on the same day and you must place the bet on that day too, plus the refund is now paid as a free bet.
Their Welcome Offer is only available to Irish customers.
Don't take up their Welcome Offer, it's terrible!
Both Winner and TitanBet pay an extra 25% cash paid on winning accas.
SportingBet refund offer has been replaced by a Weekly Acca Club.
If you are a high volume matched better, Paddy will be your best offer as you can receive 4 refunds a day plus it is worth £5. I have just ranked it lower because if you are doing £25 accas, there are more profitable accas due to Paddy's poor odds!
