King ACCA is a new to market sports betting tipster service that is operated by one Terry King. He claims that his approach to betting using accas can produce a strong profit.
Introduction to King ACCA
Accas. They are a bit of a divisive betting market. Straight off the bat, my two cents are this. When they are utilised well, they can be a fantastic way of generating additional value from traditionally low value markets and sports. At their worst, they are the bane of any sensible bettor and exist in a realm that is mostly concerned with the casual punter. This polarisation makes a lot of sense. Something that I don’t tend to see a whole lot of though are profitable tipster services that leverage simple accumulator based betting.
Don’t get me wrong, I have seen plenty of tipster services produce a profit through accas. But they are usually more exotic examples that bring together multiple bets. King ACCA categorically isn’t that. In fact, as far as accas go, I think that Terry King is definitely erring on the side of simplicity. Is this necessarily a criticism? Not at all. Because if he can deliver on the results, well, that is the single most important thing. And those results are where the service really stands out with incredibly promising initial results.
Combine that with the fact that you are dealing with football bets (one of those notoriously low value sports) and it is clear what the appeal is here. On the surface of it all, King ACCA looks bloody good. It is making money, it is doing so in an engaging way, and of course Terry King is launching this just in time for the start of the football season. There is a lot when you scratch the surface there that just… well, it seems to be a bit too convenient. So, with some (I believe quire reasonable) cynicism, let’s get into it.
What Does King ACCA Offer?
When it comes to talking about what is on offer from a service, there is often a lot of nuance involved. Other times, you have a service that, in many respects, does exactly what it says on the tin. I feel like King ACCA is a tipster service that really errs towards that. This is a tipster service that is based entirely around betting on accumulator bets.
Specifically, as I have already touched on, you are looking at football accumulators. This is a very interesting area for me, because I really don’t think I’ve seen many tipsters that use this approach actually prove profitable in the long term. And yet, should a tipster deliver on this with any real consistency, and I think that it would really open up football betting.
Using that as a springboard, let’s get into that key part of King ACCA. The bets themselves. One of the things that stood out to me most on my first look at Terry King’s service is a statement that he makes. Specifically, he says:
“Now there’s a lot of people around who place ACCA’s on the football and I’ll be honest with you, most of them don’t win because their approach is just wrong.
Picking 10+ games for an ACCA is a non-starter for me.”
That is of course a bit of a stretch for most serious bettors (although I know plenty of mates who swear blind they know what they’re doing with a 12 fold). But it isn’t uncommon to see 6 or 7 “dead certs” being brought together with football betting. Terry King someone skirts around this by saying that bets advised through King ACCA will have a maximum of 5 selections.
Personally, that still seems a bit of a stretch to me, however, it doesn’t seem excessive when you put it into broader context. The fact is that most bets that Terry King advises are triples or four folds. There are even some bets that will come in as a simple double. All of this means that King ACCA is pretty manageable.
With that said, I do want to talk about the actual bets that you will be bringing together with King ACCA. Terry King has seemingly been betting on a massive range of European games in the run up to the English football season kicking off (which looks like it will ultimately be the focus in the longer term). There have also been a range of betting markets covered from over/under goals, to picking a winner, and even draws.
All of this comes together to produce a huge range of odds. Within the incredibly limited evidence that Terry King provides for King ACCA, he claims to have had winners at odds ranging from 2/1 all the way up to 48/1. Elsewhere, we are told that you might see odds on returns are more than 70/1. Personally, I’m a bit sceptical about this.
Something that is really quite interesting to me when it comes to King ACCA is the strike rate. You see, technically, Terry King doesn’t make any specific claims here. What he does however say is that you will lose more bets than you win, all whilst claiming that he’s had just 5 bets lost out of 9. That kind of result is a long way from what I would expect to see. And of course, conveniently, there isn’t a whole lot of context provided.
As a final point, I want to talk a little bit about the logistics. As you might expect given the nature, King ACCA is a pretty low volume service with just a few bets being emailed out. However, it is worth keeping in mind that Terry King is still producing a decent number of selections each weekend.
Talking of which, as is the case with almost all football tipster services, this will be weekend heavy. Whilst there may be potential for some mid-week betting, my experience with other tipster services like King ACCA suggest that this is unlikely to be commonplace (although this isn’t something that is explicitly stated, it is worth noting).
How Does King ACCA Work?
One of the things that stands out when you look at King ACCA is the fact that Terry King doesn’t actually provide… well, any information of substance about what he is doing in order to identify selections. This is ultimately quite concerning to me, especially for a tipster who has apparently bet on a variety of niche leagues with seemingly little rhyme or reason.
What little insight we are given talks about his willingness to include bets like draws and betting on early kick-offs. This is talked about as if Terry King is being particularly brave or going against some kind of rules. They certainly aren’t rules I’ve heard of. My gut feeling here is that ultimately, this is designed to make it look like King ACCA is operated by somebody with an understanding of football without having to talk about… well, anything of substance really.
The main pitch if I’m honest seems to all boil down to the notion that simply taking advantage of accumulator bets in some way gives you an advantage. Whilst I will always concede that this can be the case, it isn’t something that is inherent. You still have to apply all of the usual rules of betting such as having a decent system to actually pick bets. Something King ACCA appears to be lacking.
It isn’t even like Terry King is providing much in the way of proofing for King ACCA. All that we get are a very select few winning bets. These are demonstrated via the medium of “screenshots” of a betting slip. But honestly, I’ve seen more than enough of them to know that this doesn’t count for much. All of this doesn’t do a whole lot to instil confidence when you look at the rest of the service.
What is the Initial Investment?
Terry King claims that King ACCA has a “normal price” of £99. However, at the time of writing this, there is an offer on in which brings the cost down to £44 plus VAT. A seeming bargain. I am highly sceptical of that original valuation though. This lower price is advertised as “pre-season” offering, but is available even after the season has started. A crude marketing tactic at best in my eyes.
Incredibly noteworthy is the fact that despite the fact that it isn’t mentioned anywhere in the sales material, King ACCA does come with a full 30 day money back guarantee. This is backed up by the fact that Terry King is selling access to the service through Clickbank. On the off chance you aren’t familiar with them, they are generally pretty good at making sure that this is honoured.
What is the Rate of Return?
The headline for King ACCA reads “4 Winning ACCA’s & £595.12 Profit Before The Season Even Starts!”. This sets a very clear expectation, as does the claim that you will see bets with those big odds returns (the sales material makes several explicit mentions of that supposed 48/1 win). All of this, I will concede, seems to be within the realm of possibility.
Where I think King ACCA does concern me a little is in the wider insinuation. Terry King talks about the fact that he has staked £90 and seen over £680 returned as if this is going to be some kind of norm. But the truth is that I just don’t see that being the case at all. Even if you take the results at face value, the small data sample means that it would be quite foolish to take that as any indicator of future performance.
Conclusion for King ACCA
It is very easy to look at something like King ACCA and get a bit caught up in the excitement of it all. And that isn’t a coincidence in my opinion. One of the main reasons that people bet with accas as much as they do is… well, it’s really bloody exciting. Every game means more as your potential returns increase. And not surprisingly, it can be easy to get carried away.
Of course, Terry King is a professional tipster. One would think that this shouldn’t be happening with his service, and I don’t think that it will. I genuinely believe that all that you will see from King ACCA are ultimately common sense bets with the odd big outsider thrown in. Not because of any system or merit to the approach, but it does allow for a lot of reader engagement. Small wins show you can win, the lure of big wins keeps people on board.
This might all seem like a bit of an unusual way to talk about a tipster service. But it is quite important in my mind to keep the questionable elements at the forefront. Is it a coincidence that Terry King explicitly states that you will lose more than you win, all whilst showing a 45% strike rate? Why isn’t that 30 day money back guarantee at least mentioned? It’s all a bit suspect to me.
Especially when you factor in that there isn’t any insight into what you’re betting on. If Terry King talked about how, for example, he looks at games between mid-table teams where less is at stake and as such, matches are more predictable. I might buy into that. Especially if he had evidence of this. Even if he said that King ACCA was based on something completely outlandish, at least it would be something.
Instead, you are forced to buy into this on blind faith. Blind faith that there is some kind of system Terry King is actually using, blind faith that the 9 games that are “proofed” through King ACCA are indicative of any future performance. I could carry on in this vein, but I won’t. because you really have to offset that against the very genuine and valid concerned that surround this.
For me, this becomes a no brainer. King ACCA simply isn’t worth taking on the risk. I will concede that theoretically, the results claimed are feasible. But are they replicable? The truth of the matter is that I’m not entirely convinced that they are. And with all of that in mind, I would say that this is one that is probably worth avoiding.
