Betting with totepool is easy, fun and offers big winnings!
Commonly known as ‘tote betting’, totepool is the umbrella brand for a range of bets where winnings are calculated from the amount of money pooled into a particular race or bet type, and are shared among punters to a dividend calculated for every £1 staked.
Totepool offer punters a choice of competitive alternatives to win, each way, forecast, tricast with bets like the totewin and toteexacta.
Plus, totepool offer punters unique bets like the toteplacepot, paying out big winnings for a small stake, and racing’s alternative to the National Lottery - the totescoop6, which with rollovers has paid out up to £2.2million for a single winner in 2007!
All totepool bets are available at totesport.com, by phone, in totesport shops or at the race course itself.
Here’s a Quick Guide to the range of totepool bets:
Single Race Bets
Totewin is a hugely popular bet with 6million race goers every year, and is really just like betting on a winner at SP. Knowledgeable punters are well aware that betting on the tote can offer outstanding value, paying out much higher winnings than SP on longer priced runners and in major handicaps.
Did you know? Some punters believe that by betting on the tote you don’t know what you’re going to win, however the same can be said of SP! In fact, totewin dividends were on average 11% higher than SP during 2007!
Fancy an each way bet? Toteplace is a unique totepool offering where punters can simply bet on a horse to be placed alone, or combine it with totewin into a traditional each way bet.
Toteexacta is a version of the straight forecast and beats it 7 times out of 10! Simply predict the horses you think will finish first and second. You can also select a “reverse” exacta which pays out if your two selections finish first and second in either order. If you’re feeling brave and think you can select the top 3 finishers, try the totetrifecta, a value alternative to the tricast.
Did you know? The toteexacta dividends beat CSF (straight forecast) on 71% of races during 2007, paying out 34% more than CSF in total winnings!
Multi Race Bets
Toteplacepot is racing’s most popular bet and available on all UK meetings. Simply select a horse on each of the first 6 races on the card and if they’re all placed, you win! Dividends are declared to a £1 unit and regularly top four figures.
Did you know? You can back up your placepot with a totequadpot bet, which offers you a second chance to win if your placepot’s down in the first 2 races!
Totejackpot works on exactly the same principal as the placepot, but requires you to select the winner in each of the first six races on the card. Just like the National Lottery and the totescoop6, should no ticket holder pick all 6 winners the pool is rolled over to a meeting the following day, and can often result in big rollover winnings!
Totescoop6 is the bet that keeps the nation on the edge of their seats each Saturday afternoon!
The scoop6 requires you to nominate the winner of 6 selected races screened live on Channel 4 racing every Saturday afternoon.
This scoop6 is so popular with racing fans that combined with rollovers, pools can become huge and a single winner can often scoop £1/4million or more! Plus the winning ticket holder gets a chance to add more to his/her prize the following week, by trying to nominate the winner of a selected bonus race.
Did you know? 17 lucky punters won the scoop6 in 2007, averaging nearly £1/4million each in prize money, and 7 customers managed to scoop the bonus fund, more than doubling their winnings!
