# UNDERSTANDING ACCUMULATOR BETS

Accumulator bets can also be referred to as parlay and multis allow you to combine multiple selections, which can be from different events or even sports into one single bet. Multi bets will be extremely difficult to win, compared to regular bets especially if you add a lot of selections in, however they can be very rewarding as the overall odds increase dramatically along with your potential winnings.

## HOW IS AN ACCUMULATOR BET PAYOUT CALCULATED?

When you add several selections into your betslip and make them all a part of the same bet – all odds will be multiplied, so let’s have a look at the example below to understand how exactly is this done.

We can assume, that your accumulator bet has three selections:

If you combine all of them in a single accumulator bet – all odds will be multiplied, so it will now be 3.03*2.04*5.98 = 36.9. If you place ₦100 on this multi-bet you will win ₦3,690!

The more selections you add – the more you can potentially win, however in order for your accumulator to win, you have to guess every single outcome correctly, which make the actual chances of winning quite slim.

Worth to mention, that Nairabet have an interesting offer, if one selection in your accumulator bet loses they will still payout your bet as if it would have won.

## WHAT IF A SELECTION IN AN ACCUMULATOR IS PUSHED?

Every bookmaker might have their own rules and applicable regulations when handling pushed selection, so it would be best to actually get in touch with a customer care representative to confirm how would happen with your accumulator bet in case a selection is pushed.

## HOW MUCH CAN YOU WIN WITH AN ACCUMULATOR BET?

This completely depends on a combination of skill, analytical thinking and pure luck, however even if the chances for big wins are quite slim – they do exist. To give a good understanding of what we are talking about, we would like to share a story about a British roof repairman named Mick Gibbs, who wagered 2.5 pounds on an insanely big accumulator bet correctly predicting the precise outcome of nine top tier European football games – this bet eventually brought Gibbs over $200,000.

Mick Gibbs (so lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same spot?) now, two years later placed a $0.3 bet on a 15 leg accumulator bet and his odds this time were 1,666,666/1. All 15 games went exactly as Gibbs predicted making him $633,000 richer.

This example of Mick Gibbs landing such big wins twice likely required quite a bit of luck, however it is worth to mention, that without a smart approach to betting even luck can’t help.

## SYSTEM BETS EXPLAINED

Placing a system bet becomes available as soon as you add three selections to your betslip and it can consist of up to 8 different selections. The betslip interface of the betting site you are using should automatically show you all possible system bet combinations, which are available with the selections you added.

### WHAT IS A SYSTEM BET?

System bet is a form of an accumulator bet where selections are combined in a more complex way compared to regular accumulator bets. With system bets you can still win even if one or more selections in your bet lose.

For example, if you have three selections (A, B and C) in your betslip you can place a “Trixie” bet, which will consist out of four individual bets: three doubles (AB, BC, AC) and one treble (ABC). It at least two selections will win – you will already receive some money from your bet. There are a lot of other different system bet variations, which all depend on the number of selections you have in your betslip.
