There are many different totepool bets offering a range of fantastic betting opportunites. Below we explain how each tote pool bet works:
totewin bet is the simplest off all tote pool bets. Simply pick the winning horse. This is very similar to a fixed odds bet, except tote win pays more than starting price odds 62% of the time, meaning it is usually more profitable to place a tote win bet than traditional “SP”.
Pick a horse to be placed in the race. Minimum bet £2.Your selections needs to be placed as follows:
Up to 4 runners ? no place betting 5 ?7 runners ?1st & 2nd 8+ runners ? 1st, 2nd & 3rd
Handicap 16+ runners ? 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th
Tote Eachway: A very popular way of betting, this is simply a totewin bet and a toteplace bet on the same horse. Minimum total stake £4.
Tote Scoop 6:
Pick at least one horse in the six nominated televised races each Saturday. Get all six winners to scoop a potentially massive dividend AND qualify for a big money bonus. Even finding a placed horse in every race pays an average dividend of over £500 to a £1 stake. Use a totescoop6 play slip to place your bet. Minimum spend £2 per line.
This is racing’s favourite bet ? and it couldn’t be simpler! Just pick a horse to be placed in each of the six toteplacepot races (normally the first six races on the card). You can choose more than one horse in any of the races to increase your chances of winning. Use a toteplacepot play slip to place your bet. Minimum total spend £2.
Tote Jackpot: Pick the winners of the six totejackpot races at the nominated totejackpot meeting each day. Not easy ? but the potential rewards are huge! You can choose more than one horse in any of the races to increase your chances of winning. Use a toteplacepot play slip to place your bet. Minimum total spend £2.
Tote Quadpot: Another popular bet ?especially if you’ve missed the start of the toteplacepot or it has fallen by the wayside before the 3rd race. As before, just pick a horse to be placed in each of the four totequadpot races which are normally races 3, 4, 5 and 6. Use a totequadpot play slip to place your bet. Minimum total spend £1.
tote Exacta: Pick the horses to finish 1st & 2nd in the correct order. Try a reverse toteexacta or a combination toteexacta to increase your chances. This is obviously more difficult than just picking the winner, but the rewards are potentially much greater! Minimum total spend £2.
Tote Trifecta: Pick the horses to finish 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the correct order in a totetrifecta race. Get this right and you could win big! Minimum total spend £2.
