The German Bundesliga returns this weekend, and that means there are even more opportunities available for our weekend accumulator bets, and it also opens up the market for us too use more bookmakers, as some only give acca insurance offers on Europe’s top leagues.
This means we now have all of Europe’s main leagues back in action, and you can now select teams from Germany, England, Spain, Italy, and France in your weekend accumulator.
If you are having an accumulator today, and are a bit unsure about exactly how acca insurance works – it is a bookmaker’s offer that sees you get your money back as a free bet if your acca bet misses by one.
So what this means is, if you place a 5-fold accumulator on Man Utd, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Barcelona to all win, and four of the five teams win, but one doesn’t, then you would get your money back as a free bet.
If all five teams win, obviously your bet wins. If none, one, two, or three teams win, you would get nothing back.
Acca Insurance gives you three outcomes rather than just the two. Instead of just the win and lose option, you have win, lose, or money back as a free bet.
These sort of money back offers are becoming very popular these days, and they’re not just limited to football. Horse racing money back specials are also everywhere.
These offers also come in the form of risk free bets, but there are more different ways to get them. For example, some bookmakers will give you your money back as a free bet if your horse falls, or it could be money back if horse comes second.

There are also plenty of risk free bets on horse racing. These are mainly offers that require you to first back a winner. bet365 will give you risk free bets of up to £50.00 on horse races live on television.
To get these risk free bets, you need to back a horse at odds of 4/1 or greater (that’s live on TV). If that horse wins, you will get a risk free bet on the next race to the same value.
So for example, you could have £50.00 on a horse at 5/1 in the first live TV race of the day on a Saturday afternoon. If that horse wins, you can then have £50.00 on a horse in the next race, and if that horse loses, you would get your £50.00 back.
While if the horse wins, you would get paid out as normal. If the horse was at odds of 4/1 or greater (again), you can complete the same process on the next race live on television. So in theory, you could go through a whole days racing claiming risk free bets.
