  2. Scroll along the race’s toolbar menu and select Totepool.
  3. Below this you can choose the markets - Win, Place, Exacta, Trifecta, Jackpot, Quadpot or Placepool.
  4. Choose your selected market, and you will then be able to see the current total pool of the pot.
  5. Choose your desired selections and then click ‘Add To Betslip’.
  6. Once you’re happy with your betslip, simply click ‘Place Bet’.

Tote Place

  • More than eight runners - place betting for first, second and third.
  • Handicap race with over 16 runners - place betting for first, second, third and fourth.

Tote Each-Way Bet

A Tote Each-Way bet is a Tote win and a Tote place bet on the same horse.

Tote Trifecta

A Tote Trifecta involves three selections finishing first, second and third in the correct order. A Combination Trifecta is where you choose a minimum of three selections in one event, which must finish first, second and third in any order. This requires multiple stakes which is based on the number of your selections.

Tote Trifecta bets are only available on UK races with three or more races.

  1. Select your chosen race, and then scroll the betting options to Totepool.

  4. Select ‘Add To Betslip’, enter your stake on your betslip and then select ‘Place Bet’.

Return dividends are based on the pool which is available once the race result has been declared.

Placepot / Quadpot

In Placepot and Quadpot bets you must correctly select one runner to place in selected races. Placepots involve six races (typically the first six races at a meeting), while Quadpots involve four races (typically the last four races at a meeting).

Scoop 6

In a Totescoop6 you need to select the winners of six specified races to claim a dividend of the win fund. If no one selects six winners, the respective portion of the win fund pool is rolled over to the next Totescoop6.

You can also bet on placed horses in the same Totescoop6 races to claim a dividend from the place fund. If no one is successful, the respective portion of the place fund is rolled over to the next Totescoop6.

If races are abandoned after the Scoop 6 has opened, it will run on the remaining legs with the following conditions:

  • If a Scoop 6 is decided on fewer than six legs, the winner is not eligible for the following week’s bonus fund.
  • Stakes which would’ve been allocated to the bonus fund are now split between the win and place funds, in the appropriate ratio.
  • Stakes brought forward in rollovers from previous Scoop6 bonus funds are excluded.


A Swinger bet is available on all races with six or more runners. Simply select two horses in one bet and you will win if they finish - first and second, second and third, or first and third. Should the race drop to four or five runners, only first and second results will win. If there are only three runners, bets are void.
