Bookmaker Betfair have launched a new betting offer insurance promotion. This one covers accumulator bets (trebles and above) and the great thing which separates this concession from the pack is that the money coming back is paid as cash and not free bet tokens.
Betfair’s Acca Edge will refund losing stakes on an accumulator which is ruined by just the one leg. In return for the cash refund though you will take a slight reduction in odds. The betting offer is available on all sports and markets including in-play.
For example if you place a £10 stake on a sixfold accumulator at odds of 30.5 and didn’t take the Betfair Acca Edge and the bet lost by one leg, you wouldn’t get anything back.
But if you had done the same bet with selecting the Edge then you would have sacrificed a small % in odds (for example 24.0 instead of the 30.5), but you would be guaranteed your £10 stake back in cash if it loses by one leg.
All you have do is just add your selections to your slip as usual and eligible bets will have the Edge icon next to it so you can click that and take the insurance if you want. You will be told the change in price if you select the Edge before you place the bet.
