We’ve all been there: a dramatic and unexpected injury time equaliser ruins your otherwise-perfect 12-team accumulator, causing you to rip up your betting slip in frustration and cancel that deposit on the Spanish villa. Paddy Power’s Acca Insurance is here to help.
What is Acca Insurance?
There are very few things in life that are more frustrating than narrowly missing out on your accumulator, although it does give you another anecdote to tell.
Paddy Power’s Acca Insurance will refund all punters whose accumulators are let down by just a single selection. If seven of your eights picks are successful, your stake will be returned as a free bet within 24 hours. This enables you to have another go if you so wish.
With Paddy Power, multiple bets that feature four or more selections will be refunded up to £10 which will offer some sort of consolation. There is also a special Acca Insurance page which features a comprehensive list of all of the eligible matches. This makes it easy to browse your favourite leagues and competitions and add them to your weekend or midweek coupon.
How Does Acca Insurance Work?
It couldn’t be easier to take advantage of Paddy Power’s Acca Insurance. Simply head to the football section of the website or use the app to browse this weekend’s key fixtures from Europe’s top leagues.
The dedicated coupon page will have a full list of games and by scrolling down to Acca Insurance, you’ll be able to see which matches will help you net that all-important refund. Rest assured, most of the top divisions are included with the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two and all of the Scottish leagues available. Furthermore, European football-boffins will also be delighted that the offer extends to the Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1. If you’re having a midweek wager, Champions League and Europa League bets are also covered by Acca Insurance.
Simply assemble your acca by adding each of the selections to the betting slip. Once you’re happy with your picks, it’s time to place your bet. If you have opted for four or more selections and you’ve stuck to the eligible competitions – you’re ready to go!
Once you’ve placed your bet, it’s simply a case of sitting back and waiting to see if Jeff Stelling has news of a goal in any of your chosen games. If you only manage five out of six winners on Saturday afternoon or perhaps you’re on the wrong end of a heartbreaking last-gasp equaliser in midweek, your stake will be refunded in full (up to £10) and credited to your Paddy Power account within 24 hours.
1) You’ve picked out five matches from the Premier League
2) Your £10 Acca is placed with Liverpool, Manchester United, Leicester, Chelsea and Arsenal all predicted to win
3) The first four teams each pick up three points from their respective games
4) Arsenal go 1-0 up before surrendering the lead and can only draw 1-1
5) Paddy Power refund your Acca and a £10 free bet is credited to your account
It’ll probably mean that you’ll have to go through the whole process again the following week… but at least you’ll have a free bet sat waiting for you. This will be valid for up to seven days.
If you’re lucky enough to land a full house, there will be absolutely no need to rely upon our Acca Insurance offer!
