How Totepool Betting Works
With Totepool you are not betting against a bookmaker. Your stake goes into a pool and how much you win depends on how many other winning tickets there are, just like the lottery.
How To Bet
Place a bet with Totepool by stating the number of the horse you wish to bet on and the amount you would like to bet. The minimum bet is £2 Win or £2 Each Way. For helpful tips on how to bet with Totepool watch this video courtesy of Great British Racing.
There are several rows of individual bookmakers in front of the Grandstand, all clearly displaying the odds available on all horses in each race.
Each bookmaker displays their minimum stake and whether they are taking ‘Win only’ or ‘Win and Each Way’ bets. Traditional bookmakers display their odds as fractions.
How to bet
To place a bet, tell the bookmaker your stake on your chosen horse, and whether you want a ‘Win’ or ‘Each Way’ bet. For helpful hints on how to bet with a bookmaker, watch this video courtesy of Great British Racing.
