Totesport is the operating brand of ‘The Tote’ (formerly the Horserace Totalisator Board) – the former publically-owned stalwart of horserace gambling. Still the only company in the UK allowed to run pool betting on horseracing, Totesport also offers customers access to great odds on a wide range of sports including football, rugby, golf, cricket, darts and many more besides. Although it didn’t quite manage to make it into our top ten in this category, Totesport still has a lot to offer users, whether experienced online gamblers or not, so read on to find out everything you need to know about this great service…
As with most services in this category, Totesport offers a number of different betting options to encourage players to place bets. Standard betting is the most common, involving the site’s betting interface (which displays odds, games, entrants, times and all of the other information you need) and bet-slip, which makes placing even the most complex of bets simple and quick. An in-vogue style of betting is live ‘in-play’ betting, which is also on offer here, giving players the chance to increase their winnings based on their manipulation or understanding of in-game events. Finally, users can also enjoy SMS or telephone betting, or use the Totesport Mobile service for those occasions where there just isn’t time to get to a computer! If sports betting stops hitting the spot, users can also enjoy casino games, poker, bingo and more – all of which are pulled off with Totesport’s trademark high quality approach.
For a service like Totesport that has held such a prominent position in the UK betting market since its inception in 1928, we have to admit we were a little disappointed that it hadn’t moved with the times in terms of bonuses and promotions. There are a few promotions on offer, such as a £10 free funds offer when new users deposit their first £5 and a few ongoing promotions, but generally we encountered far fewer promotions and special offers than we did at other services we have reviewed in this category.
We enjoyed checking out what was on offer at Totesport and suggest our readers do the same. While there is a lot of competition in this market and Totesport doesn’t quite tick all of the boxes to make it into our top ten, we were still impressed by many of the features on offer here.
