Totesport are one of most highly regarded and longest established names in the sports-betting world and as such they are a bookie that you simply need to sign-up with, especially if you are a fan of Horse Racing. Nearly every regular punter at race meetings around the UK will be familiar with the Tote as an alternative way of betting. Some prefer it to the 'scrum' of heading into the betting ring alongside the more hardened punters.
Nevertheless, Totesport isn't just racecourse booths where you queue up in an old-fashioned gentle manner. They are much more than that, especially now that they boast a hugely competitive online betting service.
Why Join Totesport
Totesport were taken over by Betfred in 2011 and as such have received a makeover with the two companies' websites complementing each other, however Tote itself was established back in 1928 when betting on sports was prohibited in this country. The government at the time made an exception for the Tote as they were promised a return a percentage of of any profits into the horse racing industry, something which they still do to this very day.
Totesport began their online presence in 2002 under the guise of Tote BetXpress and are noted primarily for their Horse Racing coverage with such markets as Placepot, Jackpot, Quadpot, Trifecta and Exacta. Scoop 6 gives the punter the chance to win big (up to seven-figure sum) for predicting six winners in televised races on Saturday.
