New to Tote? Get a £/€10 risk free first bet
Join Tote >

The best way to get started with Tote is by using your £10 risk free bet. Place £10 (€10 for Irish customers) on any of our famous pools and if the bet loses, you’ll get your money back as cash.

Here are just some of the ways you can use it:

1) Play the Tote Placepot

The Tote Placepot is the best bet in racing. Pick a horse to place in the first six races at any meeting and you can win a share of the pool. It’s a brilliant way to enjoy an afternoon of racing and we quite often see huge payouts from small stakes. Take the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, for example, where one lucky winner landed over £180,000 from just a £2 stake. Best of all, you don’t even need to pick a winner to win.

Bet on a horse to win any given race and with Tote Guarantee you’ll never get paid less than SP on all UK and Irish races. This means you’ll never feel short-changed backing a winner on the Tote.

3) It’s as easy as 1-2-3 with the Trifecta

There are many ways to play the Tote Trifecta, but to win you’ll need to pick the first three home. You can either play a straight Trifecta, which will require the horse to finish in a specific order, or a combination Trifecta to cover the other potential outcomes. Keep an eye out for our Trifecta rollover race on a Saturday where there’s usually a decent prize up for grabs.

4) Aim for the stars with the Scoop6

The Scoop6 is one of the most famous bets in racing and was the first ever bet in the UK to payout over £1,000,000. Available every Saturday, players must pick the winner of six races selected by Tote to win a share of the win pool, while there is a consolation prize for those who manage to get six places.
