If you’ve ever been to a racecourse you’ve probably put a bet on at the Tote. Tote betting is similar to a lottery, in that all the stakes are pooled. Participants in the pool bet against each other so the odds can vary as a race gets nearer. You won’t pay extra commission to us for using our Tote. Betfair has partnered up with licensed Tote operators all around the world to bring Tote betting online.
