How to bet with totepool: the complete user guide

Tote Betting is one of the most popular forms of betting in the UK. This is where winners are given a percentage of the overall pot rather than winnings being worked out according to their odds. Find here a complete guide for online tote betting options: Totewin, Totepool, Toteswinger, Toteexacta, Totetrifecta, Toteplacepot, Totequadpot, Totejackpot and Totescoop6.



Totepool works much like a lottery. All of the money staked goes into a pool which is then shared out amongst the winners. So the payout (or dividend) depends on how many people pick the winner.
All totepool dividends are declared to a £1 stake except for the Scoop6 which is declared to a £2 stake.

HOW TO PLAY TOTE WIN


   totewin   

Pick the winner of the race!

Totewin is a very simple and popular totepool bet. All you need to do is to pick the winner of the race. It is available on every race and is a great alternative to taking a price or betting at SP.
Totewin often pays fantastic returns, particularly for bigger priced horses.

HOW TO PLAY TOTE PLACE


   toteplace  

Pick a horse to be placed!

Toteplace is another popular totepool bet and is often combined with a totewin bet to form a toteeachway bet. It is available on all races with five or more runners.
For your toteplace or toteeachway bet to pay a return, your selection will need to be ‘placed’.
What does placed mean? Well, if there are five, six or seven runners in the race,
selections must finish in the first two to get a return. If there are eight runners or more, selections must finish in the first three for a payout. Handicap races with 16 or more runners may pay four places.
Remember to always check the totepool place terms displayed on the website before you place your toteplace or toteeachway bet.
