With Sky Bet’s Acca Freeze function, you’re able to freeze one winning selection before full-time meaning that it remains a winner – even if things go awry in the remainder of the game.
For Acca backers, the heartbreak of a win turning to a defeat with a late comeback is an all too familiar feeling, but with Sky Bet you can eliminate that prospect on at least one of the selections on your accumulator of five or more legs.
And one punter used Acca Freeze to perfection on Tuesday night, as they froze their selection on Luton Town to beat Arsenal after 56 minutes as the Hatters led at Kennilworth Road in the second half.
With that freeze confirmed, the selection was a guaranteed winner on a 57/1 shot – despite the fact that Kai Havertz and Declan Rice goals turned the match on it’s head and handed the Gunners three points.
We can’t think of a better example of how to use the Sky Bet Acca Freeze function and we’ll be surprised if there’s a better example all season!
How does Acca Freeze work?
To use the Acca Freeze function, simply go to Sky Bet and create a 5-fold, or greater, in the match result market on football.
The bet will display in your ‘My Bets’ section in your account with the ‘freeze’ icon – a handy little snowflake so you can quickly find which matches are eligible for Acca Freeze bets.
Once the matches are underway, you’ll get the option to freeze any of the legs in which your selected team take the lead. To do so, just hit the freeze button and then confirm your decision when prompted.
The selection will remain frozen as a winner at the price that you backed it at the beginning of the selection. That way, even if it no longer wins, it will still count as a winning selection come the end of the bet, meaning you’ll be paid out if your other selections still win – even if the team you’ve frozen go on to draw or lose.
