The tote were originally founded in 1928 after Parliament allowed a company to be created to offer Pools betting on horse racing.
In return, Tote promised to return a percentage of profits back into the horse racing industry which they’ve done ever since. ‘The tote’ can still be found at all UK & Irish racecourses and they now have over 450 high street shops. Their online operation was launched under the guise of Tote BetXpress in 2002, with the Totesport brand being officially launched in 2004.

Odds and Markets
Due to the history and industry standing of totesport, their strongest sport by far is horse racing. In addition to offering standard fixed-odds on races, they also offer totepool betting, such as Trifecta, placepot, quadpot, jackpot and Scoop6. Naturally, these aren’t for everyone but their normal prices are always competitive and regularly better than the ‘Big Three’. For other sports, their prices generally aren’t stand-out but they do come up with the occasionally imaginative special and provide a decent In-Play service.
Market-wise, it’s once again clear that horse racing wins by a number of lengths. There is only a limited range of markets for other sports, although you’ll find a decent spread for football, tennis, golf and cricket. On the racing front, there are plenty of options available when considering a selection, such as SP, a fixed price, totewin and toteplace.
While the totesport website could be described as simple and uncomplicated, it’s clear that they are some way behind their competitors in terms of website speed, interface and layout. Some of the pages can be painfully slow to load, the bet process is rather cumbersome, while the same can be said of the deposit and withdrawal functions. At least the markets and odds are neatly presented, although some customers may have already become exasperated by that point
