Betting Sites With Same Game Multi’s: The New AccaOctober 30, 2018 8:59 am
It’s Monday night. The football’s on. There’s only one game which means no acca… what you going to do?
Enter the same game multi.
This new bet type, and there’s only a limited few betting sites with same game multi’s, allows you to combine multiple bets on the same game to produce an accumulator style wager but on just one match.
So instead of trying to eek out a decent odds bet you can just combine both teams to score, over 2.5 goals, 3 or more yellow cards and Man City to win (or any markets you want) and get 10/1+ odds bet easy.
Just like an acca but on the same game.
Betting Sites With Same Game Multi Bets
Same Game Multi Explained
Any and every punter will be immediately familiar with the idea of an accumulator; being a bet with multiple legs which requires each leg to be successful in order to pay out. Bookmakers have been offering punters the option of building and placing accumulators for years, and those accumulators have long been able to encompass different markets. You could, for instance, have one selection from a match result market and one from a first goalscorer market.
Until very recently, however, each leg of any given accumulator had to be taken from a different match or betting event. That was until the introduction of same game multis, which are essentially accumulators made up of selections from various markets all from the same match or event. With a same game multi, for example, a punter can bet on a team to win a match, for them to lead at half time and full time AND for there to be over three total goals, as a treble.
How Does It Work?
Aside from comprising a number of selections from the same match or event, same game multis work in almost exactly the same way as traditional accumulators. Punters can generally add as many legs as they like to their bet, assuming that they don’t add selections which are contradictory. In the case of a same game multi, then, you can’t bet on both over and under 3.5 goals in the same way as with a standard acca, you can’t bet on both sides to win any one game. If one leg of a same game multi is void, the bet will pay out at the odds of its remaining legs if they’re successful, again in common with what would happen with a standard acca.
Those bookmakers who allow same game multis, do still tend to limit the bets to certain markets.
The markets available from each specific bookmaker will generally be listed within a separate ‘same game multi’ section for the match or event in question. It is football matches which currently most commonly boast same game multi betting, and popular markets for the bets include total goals, half time/full time result, total corners and total cards.
At present, bookmakers who offer same game accumulators, do not allow punters to include same game multi selections in larger accumulators with selections from multiple matches. It wouldn’t be a surprise, however, if this option was introduced in the future.
What Kind of Odds Do You Get?
As we’ve mentioned a number of times already, in many ways same game multis are very similar to standard accumulators. That’s also the case when it comes to their odds and how or why those odds can be shorter or longer.
What we mean by this is that, just like normal accas, a same game multi will have longer odds if it includes more legs. That’s obviously due to the fact that the more outcomes required for the bet to be successful, the less likely it is to come in and so the available odds will be longer.
One thing which does make a difference to same game multi odds as opposed to normal acca odds, however, are the types of market which are available for the bets.
Often the markets available for same game multis are of a type which don’t tend to provide particularly long odds (over/under goals, cards or corners etc.) As such, this can mean that same game multis have to have more legs than a traditional acca in order to achieve the same kinds of odds. That does all depend, of course, on exactly which selections a punter chooses to add to their bet.
How to Place a Same Game Multi
There are now a handful of different bookmakers who offer a same game multi option to punters for a range of different sports and events. The process of placing a same game multi, however, remains broadly similar across all sites. It’s summarised in a few simple steps below;
- Head to your betting site of choice and log in to your account.
- Make a deposit to your account if you don’t already have funds ready for betting.
- From the homepage of the betting site, locate and select the link for the sport of the match or event you want to bet on.
- Find the game you want to place your bet on and add all markets to your bet slip, put your stake in the ‘1x’ box and you’re good to go.
