What is a betting accumulator or acca?
An ‘acca’ is simply a colloquial acronym that refers to an accumulator. An accumulator bet is a type of wager that offers you the chance to win a higher payout, but at a greater risk. The term accumulator is used because your odds increase with the number of bets you enter, due to multiplied odds. Common accumulator options include:
- Doubles – Two Bets
- Trebles – Three Bets
- Four-Fold – Four Bets
- Five-Fold – Five Bets
- Six-Fold – Six Bets
Accumulators offer high risk/ high reward bets; as if only one of the bets fails to deliver, you lose your bet.
What is spread betting?
Spread betting allows you wager on whether a specified outcome during an event will end up being above or below a ‘spread’ offered by your chosen betting platform. Your potential losses or payout will be determined by how much above or below the spread the final event outcome is recorded.
What does each way bet mean?

This means to have a return paid out, one of your selections must win, and the other must place in a predetermined number of top finishing positions. Both bets are wagered at equal amounts. Each-way betting is most common in horse racing, but can be used in other sports.
What is a lucky 15?
