Accumulator (see also Fold) :

An accumulator involves a number of selections with the winnings from the first successful selection being re-invested on to the next selection, this is repeated all the way through the bet and winnings can accumulate in to a large return. All selections must be successful in order for an accumulator to be a winning bet.
For example, a €10.00 treble on:
Liverpool to beat Arsenal at 2.25;
Bogdanovic to beat Nadal at 8.50;
Celtics to beat Lakers at 3.50;
would return €669.37!
