    accumulator

    "accumulator = a kind of betting on the results of a series of horse races, by which any money you win from a race is bet on the next race"
    This seems to be British usage. I wonder what is the American equivalent.
    Thank you.

    Hello Itasan

    I'm told that "parlay" is the AmE equivalent.
