Betfair Acca Edge
Cash Refund On Losing Accas
T&Cs Apply. begambleaware.org
There are several bookmakers that offer Acca Refund type offers from which you can receive your stake back if one leg in your multiple lets you down. The terms of these offers vary between bookies with variables including eligible sports & markets, minimum odds requirements and a minimum number of selections. The majority of bookies that have Acca Refund offers credit refunds as free bets but one advantage of the Acca Edge offer from Betfair is that refunds are credited as cash!
Acca Edge is a betting offer from Betfair Sportsbook and applies to multiples containing 3 or more selections. It’s available for selections on any sport and market which makes it perfect for anyone that places any kind of accumulator bets.
As mentioned above, Betfair refunds stakes on Accas that have just one losing selection with refunds credited as cash. To compensate for the cash refunds rather than as free bets, customers who apply Acca Edge to their bet are offered slightly lower odds than standard.
The image shows an accumulator consisting of 3 selections with the odds for the treble being 5.15. However, before placing the bet, we have the option to apply Acca Edge. If we choose to do so, the odds of our Acca are reduced to 2.91 but we will qualify for a cash refund should one of the selections lose.
Acca Edge has proven to be an extremely popular betting offer from Betfair and is a nice twist on standard Acca Refund offers that only credit refunds as free bets.
There are also several other benefits of Acca Edge that you may not get with standard Acca Refund offers. Some of these include:
With similar offers, there is usually a maximum refund amount of around £10 – £20. However, with Acca Edge, you could place a £100 bet or even £10,000 bet and your stake would be refunded, as cash, should one selection fail to win.
Another big advantage is that if you place accumulator bets on horse racing, then Betfair’s Best Odds Guaranteed still applies to your selections. Should the SP of any of your selections be greater than the price you took, then your returns (as well as any refunds) will be adjusted based on the bigger odds!
Acca Edge is one of several great betting offers from Betfair and another reason why they’re one of WhichBookie most recommended bookies.
