Totesport is a UK bookmaking brand that should be quite a familiar name to many UK horse racing punters. As the name implies, Totesport has its roots firmly in the UK and Irish horse racing scene and has a long history to boot. Totesport, originally named Tote, goes all the way back to the late nineteen twenties and was originally set up by the UK government. The idea was to combat the illegal horse racing trade which was rampant during those years. Eventually, the bookie expanded its portfolio to include more than just horse race betting and so the name changed to Totesport. However, in 2011 the UK government decided to sell off Totesport to Betfred, one of the biggest UK bookies in the business. Today Totesport is still going strong and features more markets and more action than ever before. Totesport is licensed and regulated through the UK Gambling Commission and is operated from Gibraltar.

Today, Totesport is offering all new UK residents that sign up for a free account with them, an interesting new customer promotion worth £20. With a nod to its history in horse racing and to its more recent involvement in sports betting, Totesport is giving all new customers a £10 free bet as well as another £10 cashback on your first stake in their Totepool. All you need to do to get this offer is sign up and place your initial qualifying bet on any market you fancy at odds of 2.0 (evens) or greater. Within a period of 24 hours of your qualifying bet being settled, you will receive a free bet worth £10 in your account. For the Totepool portion of the promotion, simply place a stake of at least £10 on any Totepool bet and get a £10 cashback within 24 hours of settling your bet.

Other Bonuses & Promotions

Aside from their interesting dual promotion, Totesport has a number of other promotions which all members can take advantage of. Being a tote first and foremost, it makes sense that the majority of their promotions are focused towards their horse racing players. However, this does not mean that they don’t have a few valuable promotions for their bookie site too. The following shows what is currently available at Totesport.

Additional Totesport Sport promotions include:

  • Extra Places: Available on selected races in the tote for Winner or Each Way markets only. Available for single and multiple bets but not ante-post bets.
  • Winner by 5 Lengths or More: If your selection wins the race by five lengths or more, you get a free bet to the value of your winning stake up to £10.
  • Best Odds Guaranteed: Take an early price on your favourite to win and, if the starting price (SP) is higher, you’ll get paid out at the higher price. Note that this offer does not apply to any free bets, Tote bets, ante-post bets, Lucky 15s, 31s and 63s bets
  • Double Delight: Football fans, if your chosen player scores the first goal and manages to score a second goal, you’ll get double on your first goal scorer price.
  • Hat-Trick Heaven: If your chosen player scores the first goal and manages to score a hat-trick in the allotted 90 minutes, you get treble on your first goal scorer price.

Totesport Mobile Betting

Totesport is available on the go via dedicated apps for both Android and iOS devices including smartphones and tablets. For iOS users that wish to download the app to their device, simply visit the app store. However, Android users will have to go to the Totesport website via their device to get the download link for the Android APK file. This is because Google does not allow gambling apps in their app store, although downloading from Totesport is quick and easy. The Totesport app is easy to install and easy to use and gives you access to all of the important features and products that Totesport is so well known for. This includes plenty of horse racing action as well as football, rugby, tennis and many other sports. You can also access the In-Play markets that Totesport features, allowing you to jump in on the action across thousands of markets as events unfold.

Appearance and Navigation

With a wealth of betting experience combined with Betfred’s knowledge of what works in an online bookie, the much improved Totesport not only looks more professional than it did, it also runs very smoothly. Getting around the site is easy and they have clearly divided their bookie products and tote so that punters know exactly where to go to find what they need. The site looks good on mobile too, and provides the same level of functionality, with easy one-thumb access to all of your favourite markets. Moving from the pre-match sportsbook to the live betting page is as easy as clicking on the tab at the top of the page and, while they may not have the most competitive odds a lot of the time, they are on the ball when it comes to updating available markets and odds.

Odds & Markets Covered

While Totesport does its best to cover as many sports as possible, they do fall slightly short when it comes to available markets in each. Traditionally, Totesport is focused on horse racing and it is still their bread and butter to this day. Therefore, if you happen to be a bettor that prefers horses over humans, Totesport is a good option. They have plenty of action to choose from when it comes to UK and Irish horse racing, as well as plenty of markets with overseas horse racing events. Most of their specials and promotions are also geared more towards keeping horse racing customers happy such as their Best Odds Guaranteed feature. However, they do their best in most of the sports that are popular in the UK, including football, rugby, tennis and cricket. They just can’t compete with the likes of Bet365, William Hill or BetVictor. On the other hand, when it comes to their profit margin, Totesport is quite comparable to other top UK bookies. Their profit margin sits at around 4.7%, while William Hill is sitting at around 4.6% and Bet365 is at 4.3%. So they are still within the bounds of where a leading UK online bookmaker should be.

Some of the most popular sports available at Totesport currently include:

  • Horse Racing
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • American Football
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Darts
  • Cycling

In-Play Betting?

Like all great UK bookies, Totesport provides live in-play betting and covers most of the popular sports including football, tennis, basketball, rugby, cricket, American football, and a number of others. The In-Play page can be accessed simply by clicking on the appropriate tab at the top of the sports page. The overall layout of the live betting page is very good, allowing easy viewing of matches underway, current odds and betting options. Totesport does very well in providing their customers with plenty of accurate and pertinent information regarding the events that are unfolding in live events. While there is no live video stream available, they do provide high quality, info-rich graphics displaying every action that is occurring in the event being covered. They also provide live commentary on certain events, mainly horse racing and football.

Deposit & Withdrawal Options

Totesport currently has the following payment options for depositing and withdrawals:

  • Visa
  • Visa Debit
  • MasterCard
  • Maestro
  • Neteller
  • PayPal
  • Skrill
  • PaySafeCard

Our Conclusion

If you happen to be more of a horse racing fan, then Totesport is an excellent choice as they cover just about every horse racing event, not only in the UK and Ireland, but major tracks around the world too. While they do offer plenty of other sports too, especially football, you may find yourself looking at other UK bookies for those markets instead.
