Accas or accumulators to give them their full name are simple bets which combine four or more selections into one single wager. A selection is just another name for your pick, if you think your team are going to win, that’s one pick (selection) in the acca. Pick three more selections (home win, away win or draw) and add them together and hey presto you’ve got a fourfold accumulator.
You can take it further by adding more selections, 5 selections is a five-fold, 6 selections is six-fold and so on. Generally speaking the more selections you make the bigger the odds. However, the risk of losing also increases. On a straight acca bet you’ll only win if ALL your selections are correct. If you want to insure yourself against one or more teams letting you down then bets like a ‘Lucky 15′ or ‘Yankee’ can cover this.
