The "Tote" short for Totalisator, has been offering it's own brand of sports betting in the form of pool betting at British racecourses since 1929. Although nowadays you are no longer limited to being at the racecourse, or the UK, to place a pool bet on a British horse race. The Tote have their own online sports betting site with clients worldwide (exc USA). And many High Street bookmakers including Coral's, Ladbrokes and over 1,600 independent bookmakers as well as Betfair betting exhange offering Totesport horse racing betting to their customers. Compared to traditional fixed odds betting, Totesport pool betting odds are up to 70% better.
A: All the bets placed on a race with Totesport are put in a pool, a deduction is made to cover costs and the Tote's contribution to UK horse racing. The remaining sum of money in the pool is then divided by the number of winning tickets to give a dividend, including a GBP1 stake. Odds can fluctuate according to the pattern of betting, and no bets are accepted once the race has started.
Popular bets include the daily Tote Placepot - select a horse to be placed in each of the first six races at any UK race meeting - with an average dividend paying GBP500 to a GBP1 stake.
An easier option than trying to win the Placepot is the daily Tote Quadpot bet - select a horse to win or be placed in each of the last four races at any UK meeting - an average dividend paying GBP60 to a GBP1 stake.
The Scoop6 is the best known Totesport horse racing bet with 100,000 people worldwide playing every week for a chance to win GBP1 million, and GBP2-3 million can be won when there are no winning tickets for several weeks resulting in a Win Fund rollover, which can occur frequently. The object of the Tote Scoop6 bet is to pick a horse to win or be placed in each of six nominated televised Saturday races. The Tote Jackpot is the weekday version of the Scoop6.
A: Details of the six nominated races are printed in all UK Saturday morning national newspapers, and shown on ITV Racing. Players have three chances to win: Win Fund, Place Fund and the Bonus Fund. Only the Win Fund winner(s) are eligible to play for the Bonus Fund by picking the winner of a Scoop6 race the following Saturday. You can increase your chances of winning by picking more than one horse in each of the six races. Ron Nicholson of Bournemouth 'scooped' GBP878,939 for a GBP4 stake on the Tote Scoop6 in April 2004, the biggest payout in betting shop history.The Scoop6 can be played online at all UK betting sites or by visiting your local bookmaker - look for the Scoop6 betting coupon. Details of last Saturdays Tote Scoop6 winners and payouts can be viewed below. It costs GBP2 to play when you select one horse in each of the six races.
A: Yes, by joining a Scoop6 betting syndicate will improve your chances of winning. Professional gambler and race horse owner Harry Findlay is a member of a winning Scoop6 syndicate. For example, if you we're to select just two horses in each Scoop 6 race (2x2x2x2x2x2xGBP2) would require a total weekly stake of GBP128, so you quickly see the appeal of splitting the cost with others. And if you can't find a syndicate to join, why not start one with family, friends or work colleagues? Remember to draw up a written agreement, explaining rights and responsibilities, and ensure that every syndicate member is given a copy which they must sign and date. There is nothing worse than falling out with family and friends over money. Taken to the extreme, it is not unusual for members of a betting syndicate to end up in court following a dispute over the distribution of the money from a big horse racing win, so always ensure your betting syndicate has a written agreement.
A: It will be replaced by the SP favourite in the race. And if their are joint or co-favourites, the joint or co-favourite will replace your non-runner(s). This rule applies to all Totesport pool bets including Placepot and Quadpot bets.
