Totesport is one of the UK’s most recognisable and trusted gambling brands, famous for its totepool service and strong affiliation to horse racing. The company was owned by the UK government until 2011 when it was taken over by Betfred. Since then it has benefited from Betfred’s expertise with a host of new features, while continuing to operate popular pool bets such as Scoop6, Swinger and Trifecta.

  • An emphasis on horse racing with a variety of bets available on races from across the world
  • The lottery-like Totepool option gives bettors the chance to win big without staking huge amounts
  • A bet in-play section with live graphics and detailed statistics to help you track the action
  • Some sports aren’t as well represented as they are on other sites

Totesport’s new mobile app concentrates on horse racing and offers fans a good range of markets, including Totepool bets. Visually it is smart without being spectacular and it is quick and easy to use, although the limited markets on offer for other sports is quite a drawback.

Totesport’s sports betting options are split into three separate tabs, with the totepool features and horse racing bets given their own dedicated pages. However, it is possible to navigate through to the sportsbook pages and explore a range of sports from boxing to volleyball. It does not quite have the depth of sports of some of its rival sites but those that are included are well represented. The company prides itself on its horse racing coverage and you can place a huge variety of bets on races from across the world.


Totesport sports a slick green and black livery with a solid and easy to understand layout. Sub-menus are placed down the left side of the screen allowing quick access to various sports menus and bet types. Bet in-play options are represented on the page with images and brief news stories helping to provide you with useful information without appearing cluttered or too stat-heavy.

Functionality and Features

Totesport’s USP is without doubt its totepool section, which offers bettors an exciting alternative to fixed-odds betting. Various bet types such as the popular Scoop6 allow you to win big without staking huge amounts, in a lottery-style system. There are dozens of other innovative betting options to explore which offer various opportunities to win outside the traditional betting format. Totesport also features an impressive in-play section with live graphics and in-depth statistics available to help you make your selections.


Totesport is currently offering to match a first bet up to £25 when you sign up to the site and also has several sport-specific specials to keep things interesting such as double or treble odds if your first goalscorer selection goes on to grab two or three goals in a game. Racing fans are well looked after with best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish racing and enhanced odds in the Lucky 15/31/63 bets.


If you plan to bet exclusively on football or any other sport outside of racing then Totesport is probably not the best option for you, but if you are a horseracing fan with a serious understanding of the racing markets then you are in the right place. The site is second-to-none in terms of coverage and innovation and with guaranteed best odds to boot, you cannot go wrong.

   Getting Better!

The tote website is getting better by the day. I use to find it very old fashioned but since the relaunch it has improved 100%. The site is very easy to navigate but sometimes the range of special markets lets them down. Another negative is their lack of promotions. My main sport is football and I find other companies offer alot more in terms of cashback and free bets.

   Great for horse racing

The tote site is great for betting on horse racing. It's easy to use, no delay in getting your bet on and offers some great promotions on pool bets.

   Happy enough!

I've never had a problem with the tote site and I like to bet with bookmakers that support horse racing. Their ticket giveaway promotions are a big plus.
