Each-way Accumulator Bets - help needed
I did a £2.50 each-way who would win the leagues bet at the start of the season with Man City 9/2, Saints 18/1, Charlton 7/1 and Crawley 7/2.
Does anyone know how they work out the winnings? Do I get 2 winners (hopefully) and 2 places or just all placed?
Any help would be appreciated as i knew if they all won would of been £10k.
Ok mate it depends on if it was a 1/5th of the odds place or 1/4 if its a 1/5th you should get back about £188 thats two wins and two places, if its a 1/4 the odds its about £264 either way a nice return, shame about Crawley as they were a silly price at the start of the season..
Hope that helps.
depends how many places they pay whether it's a 1/4 or 1/5 of the stake i.e 18/1 to 9/2 or 7/2.
not sure if they all get placed, either way the max you'll return is 90, minimum 45 based on 1/5 ew rule (which i'd imagine it will be)
looking into it it looks like if one win goes down the whole lot go ew.

Assuming it was a straight accumulator (£5 staked), you lose the win part of the bet as they didn't all win.
As dune said it depends on the place terms, but I made it between £89 and £151.
Thanks for the heads up, i'll let everyone know how much when i collect.
I'm happy with anything as never expect to win those bets
either way collect now cos the ****s might rule 4 it for pompey when they die
Course they will, because Man City cannot finnish outside a place. Collect it now.

Could be you have a mixture of 1/4 & 1/5? - obviously then it'll be somewhere in between these amounts.
You'd have got 9,405 as the win part of this. What definitely doesn't happen is that you get 1/4 (or 1/5) of this total. It doesn't work like that. 150.66 is the most you'll be picking up.
Better than nothing. Fair play having Saints as one of the choices.
F***ing hell Rut,you know your beans.
I also know I'd have picked over a grand if I ain't split that bet with you. You jinxed it. Derby v Gillingham - remember it?
