Coral drop Football Acca Insurance for winnings boost
August 2, 2017
Coral is the latest bookmaker to change its headline football promotion in the run up to the new season, dropping the Football Acca Insurance offer and replacing it with a 10% winnings boost.
Coral’s 4+ Acca Boost will reward customers with 10% extra winnings on successful straight line accumulators with four selections or more. The extra winnings will be paid in free bets up to £100 maximum. This means having to place the free bets in the hope of getting a return, or the safe option from betting offers of using matched betting to turn the free bets into cash, £100 free bets will typically be worth £80 using this method.
Terms of the 4+ Acca Boost are quite straight forward, it applies to Match Result (win draw win), Both Teams to Score and Win & Both Teams to Score markets on any football matches with prices offers on the 90 minute match result. Minimum odds of 1/10 per selection with minimum cumulative odds of 6/4 for the accumulator means the vast majority of football accas will qualify.
Coral customers can claim one Acca Boost per day and the opportunity to bag free bets is always welcome. We’ll be looking closely at how Coral price up their football odds to see whether there is a profitable edge to this offer but despite the lure of a potential £100 free bets, there may be little value in Acca Boost for the matched betting community.
The end of Coral Football Acca Insurance
The news comes as a disappointment for us at Matchedbets.com. The Football Accumulator Insurance provided a good edge for matched betting. The £25 free bet refund for having one losing selection was easy to exploit with four different methods to extract a profit from the offer. It was typically worth around £5 profit for every accumulator placed, making Coral one of the go to bookmakers on our Acca Backers tool.
It means we have removed Coral from Acca Backers but thankfully, we have 12 more acca insurance offers to keep the matched betting profits rolling through the football season. Acca Backers is the ultimate time saving tool for acca insurance offers. It’s configured with the terms of each bookmaker’s acca offer and instantly generates the best accumulator bets to place. Acca Backer calculates the Expected Profit for four different strategies, allows user to swap selections and has fully integrated tracking to deliver the most flexible acca tool currently available.
