Betfair Acca Edge has replaced the Acca Insurance they used to offer so they now offer an extremely competitive form of Accumulator Insurance. It is available for both new and existing customers so everybody can get involved with this feature.
So how exactly does Acca Edge work?
If your sports accumulator of 3 or more selections is let down by a single result Betfair's Acca edge will have you covered. They do this by giving you your stake back as cash instead of a free bet like other operators. When you activate it on your bet slip you will, however, get a slight reduction on the overall odds of your bet however the extra security you have might be worth the trade-off.
Once the last leg of your accumulator bet has settled you will receive your refund immediately as opposed to having to wait for a few hours to get it back. One of the best features of Acca edge is the option to mix your bet up and include selections from different sports in one bet allowing you to mix football, horse racing and tennis etc if you so desire.
How are my Betfair Acca Edge odds calculated?
Betfair will calculate the odds of your Acca Edge bet by working out the odds you would be offered if one of your selections had failed to win. Although this is a reduced price you have the added security of knowing that you have an extra buffer.
