Tote Pool Guarantee

With your new Tote Guarantee, customers will never be paid less than SP returned from the course.

If the dividend pays less than the SP, the Tote will match the price of the horse at the off. Even better, if the dividend beats SP, the Tote will pay you out at the bigger price.

Tote Placepot 

The Tote Placepot is one of the most popular pool bets in horse racing and is run across every meeting, every day across the UK and Ireland.

It's a fun bet with a minimum stake of just £2. At the Cheltenham Festival in 2019, one lucky customers won a staggering £182,567.80 from a single line costing £2.

The Tote Placepot requires customers to pick a horse to get placed in the first six races at their chosen meeting. The total number of places paid is determined by the number of runners in the race.

Customers can also buy back in if they are unfortunate to go out in the opening two races by playing the Quadpot on the final four races.

As with other Tote pool bets, customers can select more than one horse in each race, but this will affect the overall stake.

To work out the stake, just multiply the number of selections in each leg.

Tote Jackpot 

The Tote Jackpot is a daily pool bet run at a chosen course. Customers need to predict the winner of the first six races at the chosen venue.

A single straight line costs £2, but customers can create a perm and have more than one horse running in a race. Remember, the bigger the perm, the stake will increase.

To work out how much your perm will cost, simply multiply the number of selections in each race to give you your number of ‘lines’. Then multiply that by the stake you wish to place on each line.

Tote Scoop6

Run on a Friday and Saturday, the Tote Scoop6 is made up of six selected races. Similar to the Tote Jackpot, customers need to predict the winner of all six races to win a share of the pool.

The Tote Scoop6 costs just £2 for a straight line with the dividends fairly often paying out in excess of £100,000!

Another good thing with the Tote Scoop6 bet, if all your horses go on and finish in the places, customers will win a share of the place pool, result!

As with all Tote pool bets, if the favourites get beaten, the more the pool will pay!

Tote Swinger

Fancy two horse in the same race? Tote Swinger is the bet to do – if both selections finish in the top three places, customers will win a share of the pool.

Customers can also select more than two horses in the same race, but the original stake will increase.

£1 swinger on two selections costs £1

£1 combination swingers on three selections costs £3

£1 combination of four selections costs £6

£1 combination of five selections costs £10
