If you are a recent convert to the BetStars sports betting service (and if you aren’t yet, then why not join today by reading about the latest BetStars sign up offer here) then you will be aware of BetStars Acca Insuranceone of their most prominent promotions.

That is their Acca Insurance offer for football accumulator bets, which we first brought you news of back in March. However the good news for football fans is that BetStars will be keeping the offer running throughout the summer, taking in two of the world’s biggest football tournaments.

That’s because while Europe busies itself preparing for the 24-team Euro 2016 competition in France this summer, across the Atlantic Ocean, North and South America’s finest teams will also battle it out over a similar time period in the United States as the Copa America 2016 takes place.

So what better way to enjoy both of these fantastic football events than by enjoying some insurance on your accumulator bets this summer with BetStars.

BetStars Acca Insurance offer recap

Bet Stars FootballWith BetStars, all you need to do participate in this offer in either tournament (and you can use selections from any football match that BetStars offers odds on), is to make five selections or more from the Win/Draw/Win market on BetStars. You do this by clicking on the odds for the outcome of the game to add it to your betting slip.

This is a little different to the original offer when first released, which was only available on Acca Bets of six selections or more. BetStars have, in their wisdom, reduced this offer now down to five-selection accumulators.

Once you have added the games to your betting slip, simply enter in how much money you wish to wager on the accumulator. The offer with BetStars is payable in full on bets of up to £50, so provided your bet is no more than that, your entire stake is covered by the offer.

When you have placed your bet, the Acca Insurance offer is now running on your bet. This means that if out of all your selections, just one team lets you down, then BetStars will refund your losing stake (up to the maximum of £50) as a free bet, which you can use on another football betting market.

It is worth noting that your free bet token will not be returned on a subsequent bet, but any winnings attributed to it will be freely available for you to withdraw from your BetStars account as you see fit.
