The AccaDoo mantra for football betting is ‘New season, new betting account’.

The start of the 2017/18 Premier League season is nearly upon us. For most means dusting off our betting apps and lining up some juicy Premier League accas to win some money. That’s what Saturday afternoons are all about!

The start of the new season also provides us with the opportunity to review the best offers from the bookies as they fight for our custom. It is the perfect opportunity to look at who you gamble with, see what else is out there that could make life easier for you and open a new betting account. Don’t worry, we’ve done the leg work and picked out the best five betting apps on the market right now. All you have to do is open a new betting account and then watch the winners fly in.

New season, new betting account #1 – Bet365

Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365
Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365. Min deposit £5 and 1x settled bet requirement to release Bet Credits. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply.

Bet365 are the biggest online sports bookmaker on the market and for good reasons.

  • Best odds guarantee
  • Most markets
  • Generous cash-outs and bet editing options

The small print says you must have settled bets (excluding bets that have been Cashed Out) to the value of three times your qualifying deposit and bonus before making a withdrawal. That only really becomes a pain if you want to switch to a different account, otherwise it makes no difference to you whatsoever.
