Bookmakers on why they are laughing all the way to the bank to the tune of ACCAS (Accumulators)

Accumulator example 
Accas (Accumulator bet)  is a way of (if successful) converting a relatively small stake into a large profit by carrying over winnings on one event to the next event,
and so on, for a pre-determined number of events.

Accas, are now becoming more profitable for bookmakers due to the availability of betting
online,  mobile phone ,tablets, ipads.

Recently, I  have found, a huge push for Accas
while browsing on twitter, facebook  lately.
The Accas are been promoted by bookmakers with military precision  Agree/Disagree ? go and type Accas into your Twitter / Facebook search bar you will see the buzzword Accas on your timeline and find quotes -

Here's a load of free Footie tips for a Saturday afternoon. Share your Accas with us today!

Yesterday's MASSIVE odds Accas was 4 teams which would have returned over £700 from £10!!

Matching the best odds  on 6+ team Accas tonight!!

A winning weekend?!  Kick it off with one of over 150 accumulators we've given a boost in our enhanced Accas.

It had me curious to why the  push on Accas?but  Answer is simple  "Profits Profits Profits"
which is why bookmakers have being  targeting  the Acca  market to the 18 to 25 age group.
WHY? I hear you ask,  simply Its has a high demand turnover in this age group and easier to emotionally target, greater profit from high volumes of small stakes will always be a happy hunting ground for bookmakers.

 How often have you heard this line in work, pub, home?
Only one team let me down this weekend.

Sometimes I would wake up in a cold sweat shouting that line out !  

When I was betting on Accas/ football coupons my thought process was simple,  
bet small, win bigbut what I didn't take into account was that I was spending €20 a week, €80 a month, €960 a year on Accas.

When I think back the biggest win in a year was €376.20, later in  that year I won €78, €108
from €5 stakes but in reality I lost -€397.80 that year and this is the norm when you bet on Accas.

Yes I hear chosen few MOAN but  "I've won thousands" ! in reality only a handful will make a profit from Accas or betting in general "fact" The winners are betting firms. They will always push Accas as its a easy profit for themHence why, we need to be more aware of the fact, that betting firms are pushing Accas.

Below is a sample promotion from one betting  firm.

Here is what you need to do to qualify each week

Place a £5 accumulator on any sport with combined odds of 5/1 or more before midnight Sunday.
Your £5 free bet will then be credited by 7pm Monday for you to use on any sport.

If you miss a week you're out!  Place a £10 accumulator to get back in to the Club.
If you don't do a Acca by a certain date then this strongly worded email will appear in your inbox forcing your hand to back Accas.

As of 23:59 Sunday 2nd February the qualifying bet to regain entry in to the Free Bet Club will change to £25 on an accumulator at odds of 5/1 or more. The re-joining fee for Free Bet Club only applies once you have failed to qualify in a given week during the promotional period. 

This is your last chance to re-join the Free Bet Club while the qualifying bet is £10.  If you place a qualifying bet of £10 before 23:59 Sunday 2nd February you will be back in the Free Bet Club and your weekly qualifying stake will return to £5.  However, if you fail to place a qualifying £10 accumulator at odds of 5/1 or more before 23:59 Sunday 2nd February your re-joining fee will increase to £25.

Accas are a thing of the past for me but the staggering amount of punters each week placing bets on  Accas in hope of hitting the acca jackpot is frightening.

The more frightening part in which I totally disagree with is the subconscious media methods,betting firms are allowed use to promote Accas on social media networks by  overloading customers with intense psychology bombardment with constant emails, tweets that YOU need  Accas  to the point they overwhelm you. 

One psychology method betting firms use is the one I've put in place here on my post. 
Accas the word itself is typed in bold.  Now go to your twitter/facebook search bar. 
Type Accas in your search bar and look at all the tweets/comments from  betting firm accounts.

The word (Accas) is highlighted in bold just as I've done throughout my post.
Leaving the word Accas to sit in your subconscious thoughts.
Accas Accas Accas  =  Profit Profit Profit  for betting firms . 

And yes betting firms need to make a profit & to sponsor major sports events but not in this way 
of psychology dictatorship which is not being policed or monitored. 
It's starting to get to the stage, now more than ever that problem gamblers are arising from 
these psychology cult methodson social media, online media , tv ads etc. 
In recent years betting firms have  moved these cult methods into the high street and local betting shops starting with virtual races.  "Nothing virtual about a winner" and now FOBTS.    

It's only a matter of time and its starting to show now that betting firms can tell you, yes you on who what and how to bet on by using subconscious psychology on social media, online betting,tv ads, text alerts, emails. 

Betting firms are using psychology that all supermarkets use putting ATM's to the back of shop so you have to pass all the aisles to get to the ATM. They then put  all the sweets,drinks,lottery to the front of the tills. How many of us have gone into a supermarket and always end up spending more?
Its the same psychology principles  betting firms are now using. Hence why problem gamblers are gambling on Accas, Virtuals and FOBTS.

Irony is when betting firms show their true colours by marking your cards on your online account
just as you find a way of making a profit from them. 
They then find a way of pushing you away from their doorstep restrictions errors in logging in etc #Fact.

Betting firms are a business , they need to make a profit to stay in business but this is not the way  
using subconscious psychology and leaving no stone unturned to trigger your gambling urges and its scary to think they have used Addiction councillors to advise them on core triggers for gamblers. 

"All in aid of helping gamblers of course "

Betting firms have a lot to answer to, regarding these issues and  the surge of problem gamblers,
as they are the ones implementing  subconscious psychology !  but yet they will not take the responsibility  of having protocols in place to help problem gamblers which they are responsible for by continually using  psychology triggers. 

Key question to  ask yourself as you find yourself standing in front of  the form guide for the 
Virtual race at  11.11  Sprint valley  hoping Number 4 wins, while looking down at your open palm to  the last few euros  in your hand. Who's winning ? if this is you, please click on link below.
