New Opportunity for UK Punters
Tote, the popular betting firm, has announced a major update for punters just in time for the highly anticipated Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on Sunday. With this update, Tote will now be offering French pools, starting with this weekend’s two-day spectacle at Longchamp.
More Returns for Your Money
By adding French racing to their pools, Tote is giving punters the opportunity to bet into the same pool as French and international bettors, potentially resulting in more returns for your money. With prize money in France surpassing what the UK and Ireland can offer, some of the top horses and riders will be making the trip across the channel.
Accessing French Racing Made Easy
Betting on French racing has been available with most bookmakers for a long time, but Tote's new offering makes it even easier to participate in the action. No need to make the trip to France – simply bet through Tote for the same pool.
A Price Discrepancy to Watch Out For
In some cases, the price discrepancy between Tote and bookmakers can be quite significant. For example, in 2006, Rail Link, the eventual winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, paid 24/1 on Tote compared to just 8/1 with the bookmakers due to heavy backing from Asian punters for Japanese hero Deep Impact.
Wide Variety of Pools
Tote will offer a variety of pools for French racing, including Win, Place, Exacta, Trifecta, Quinella, and Swinger pools. Work is also underway to add Multi-leg pools. In addition, the majority of French racing, with 88 tracks, will be available on Tote.
Get Involved with Tote
If you don't have a Tote account yet, now is the perfect time to get involved. With French racing added to their offerings, Tote is offering an excellent welcome offer. Simply visit the Tote website, register a new account, and stake a minimum of £10 on horse racing.
