Our Challenge Bets

Two of Footy Accumulators most popular bets are the challenge bets that we run. These bets are slightly different to our regular bets, in that they run over a longer period of time and require a little more patience.

£10-£1000 Challenge Bet

We run two types of challenge bets, the first of which is our ‘£10 – £1000 Challenge Bet’. This Challenge Bet is the one that takes the longest, but if done properly can be one of the most rewarding. The basic principle is to start with £10 and place a bet that contains odds of around 1/5 or more. These bets should be bankers and therefore carry a lower risk. The best markets for these odds are listed below:

  • Clean Sheet Markets – e.g West Ham United v Chelsea – West Ham United No Clean Sheet at 1/3
  • Either Half Markets – e.g West Bromwich Albion v Manchester United – Manchester United to win either half at 1/4
  • Over 1.5 goals – e.g Liverpool v Crystal Palace – Over 1.5 match goals at 1/5

Because of the low odds it will take time, if each bet placed had odds of 1/5 it would take you 26 bets to turn £10 into £1000 (or just over). We look at all different types of matches for our £10 – £1000 challenge bets not just the Premier League. For example we have previously used matches from Serie B, Dutch Eerste Divisie and the lower leagues of English football. By doing this it allows us to find the very best bet in terms of both how safe it is and how much value it has price-wise.

We would recommend using BetVictor for your £10 – £1000 challenge bets. Not only do you get a £200 welcome bonus when you are a new customer with them, but they also have some of the best odds around which makes it easier for you to accumulate winnings quicker. They are also one of few bookmakers to offer the either half markets which are one of the major contributors to both of the challenge bets.

In 2016 we managed to win our £10 – £1000 challenge bet and we will win another in 2017, so make sure you are on our next challenge bet.

AccaTracker Evens Challenge

We also run another challenge bet, the AccaTracker Evens Challenge. This is run in line with our app AccaTracker and has a similar concept to the £10 – £1000 challenge bet. The two main differences are that instead of starting with £10 you start by staking just £5 and instead of going with odds of around 1/5, we go a little higher and try to find bets with odds of around evens. The main advantage of this is that you get to the target £1000 much quicker, as it should take around seven or eight bets to hit it. For the evens challenge we use a selection of markets including match results, goals markets and request-a-bets. Examples can be found below:

  • Match Result – Queens Park Rangers v Sheffield Wednesday – Sheffield Wednesday to win at 1/1
  • Goals – Preston North End v Huddersfield Town – Over 2.5 goals at 11/10
  • Request-A-Bet – Leicester City v Manchester United – 10+ match corners and 30+ match booking points at 11/10
  • Either Half Markets – Middlesbrough v Everton – Everton to win either half at 5/4

As mentioned above the odds are around evens, it is difficult to find a bet of exactly evens every time so prices may vary and be slightly over (e.g. 11/10) but that just means you accumulate winnings quicker. We would recommend using Sky Bet for your evens challenge for a number of reasons. Firstly they have an excellent sign-up offer for new customers whereby if you bet £10 they will give you £30 in free bets. The second advantage of using Sky Bet is that as a customer you can opt-in to the Sky Bet Club, which grants you a free £5 every Monday if you bet £25 the week before. The third and most important advantage is that they are the only bookmaker to run request-a-bets, which are the main contributor to our challenge bets so realistically you need to be with them to join in.

Both of our challenge bets are well worth taking part in, they are minimal risk in terms of odds and if successful can be very profitable. Click through to see our latest challenge bets.
