9.7. Lose-to-Win accumulator

A Lose-to-Win accumulator** is the opposite of an accumulator bet in terms of bet settlement, i.e. a Lose-to-Win accumulator bet will be a winning bet if the equivalent accumulator bet loses. In other words, the Lose-to-Win accumulator is a bet on two or more selections across different events, where you win if you are incorrect on at least one result.

(Please remember that in an accumulator bet all the selections must match the results in order for your bet to win).

The total price of the Lose-to-Win accumulator is calculated automatically in proportion to the actual accumulator’s winning price.

Example: €100 is staked on a Lose-to-Win accumulator consisting of 3 selections at the following prices:

  • Selection 1: 1.50 (1/2)
  • Selection 2: 2.00 (1/1)
  • Selection 3: 2.60 (8/5)

The total price of an accumulator bet containing the above selections will be: 1.50 x 2.00 x 2.60 = 7.80 (34/5).

The total price for the Lose-to-Win accumulator is 1.08 (2/25).

The above Lose-to-Win accumulator has the following possibilities for settlement:

  1. If at least one selection does not match the result (guessed incorrectly), but the other selections match the results, then the settlement will be €100 х 1.08 = €108 and the net winnings (excluding the bet stake of €100) will be €8.

  2. If the 3rd selection is on an event declared void (settled at the price of 1.00 (0/1)), then the total price of the accumulator, opposite to the selected Lose-to-Win accumulator, decreases from 7.8 (34/5) to 3.0 (2/1): 1.50 x 2.00 x 1.00 = 3.00.

    The total price of the Lose-to-Win accumulator will therefore increase accordingly from 1.08 (2/25) to 1.333 (1/3). If at least one selection does not match the result (guessed incorrectly), then the Lose-to-Win accumulator bet wins and the settlement will be:€100 х 1.333 = €133.3 Net winnings: €133.3 - €100 (bet stake) = €33.3.

  3. If the 2nd and 3rd selections are on events declared void (settled at the price of 1.00 (0/1)), then the total price of the accumulator, opposite to the selected Lose-to-Win accumulator, decreases from 7.8 (34/5) to 1.5 (1/2): 1.50 x 1.00 x 1.00 = 1.50

    The total price of the Lose-to-Win accumulator will therefore increase accordingly from 1.08 (2/25) to 2.50 (6/4). If Selection 1 does not match the result (guessed incorrectly) then the Lose-to-Win accumulator bet wins and the settlement will be: €100 х 2.50 = €250 Net winnings: €250 - €100 (bet stake) = €150.

  4. If some selections match the results (guessed correctly) but the other selections are on events declared void (settled at the price of 1.00 (0/1)), then the Lose-to-Win accumulator bet will lose.

  5. If all selections in a Lose-to-Win accumulator are on void events (settlement price of 1.00 (0/1)), then the whole Lose-to-Win accumulator will be made void, and the bet stake will be returned to the account.

Please see the examples below on various permutations of settlement for a Lose-to-Win accumulator.

Each selection’s outcome is indicated as follows:

“+” Correctly guessed result.

“-” Incorrectly guessed result.

“=” Selection on events declared void. Settled at the price of 1.00 (0/1).

* Example: If the selection is on an event declared void (Settled at the price of 1.00 (0/1)), the price of the equivalent accumulator bet will be 2.00 x 2.60 = 5.20 (21/5). Therefore, the price of the Lose-to-Win accumulator will be 1.143 (1/7).

** Please be aware that the bet settlement rules for Lose-to-Win accumulators containing events declared void have changed. If one or more events in the Lose-to-Win accumulator are declared void, the total price of the Lose-to-Win accumulator will be increased, as the price of the equivalent Accumulator bet is decreased.
