New Betfair Acca Edge pays out refunds in cash

Lost stake refund as cash if acca loses by one leg


There is a feature at online betting site Betfair, one which has taken accumulator insurance to a new level. It is called the Betfair Acca edge and there are little touches about it which sets it apart from other such concessions that are available.

Cash Refunds

Taking one leg insurance on a losing acca is nothing new with online betting, but the Betfair product offers something a little different.

For starters, if your accumulator loses by one leg with the Betfair Acca Edge applied to it, you will receive a refund, but instead of refunds paid back as free bets, you will get the stake refunded as CASH instead.

How the Betfair Acca Edge Works

So that is a very nice touch and once the Acca Edge has been applied to a bet, you will sacrifice a little in terms of the odds that you take. To apply the offer, for example if you had a fourfold wager running at a potential profit of £988.13 with the Edge applied your potential would then be £921.63.

The amount that % is reduced by is not a set amount, but will depend on the number of selections in the acca and the odds on them.

Further details

So in summary, just build your bet with selections from the Betfair sportsbook. The selections can come from any market including in-play selections and ti also applies to trebles and above.

Then if your bet is eligible for the Acca Edge you will see the icon in your betting slip. Just click it if you want to activate it and then you will see how much of a reduction you will take in odds.

So basically just for a small sacrifice of overall odds, remembering this is an acca and a long shot, then it is well worth it for the lost stake refund as cash if the bet loses by just the one leg.

So if you are fed up with your accas losing by just one leg, start using the Betfair Acca Edge when you want!
