The new website and launch of Tote Guarantee come three months after the UK Tote Group completed its acquisition of the Tote
The UK Tote Group announced the launch of the Tote’s new website – tote.co.uk – which provides customers with a new dedicated digital pool betting experience for horseracing.
Tote.co.uk is available on desktop and mobile and seeks to provide customers with a greatly enhanced experience when placing single and multileg bets with the Tote.
The website will continue to undergo development and improvements with extra features being added. Any new customers signing up to tote.co.uk will receive a £10 risk free bet and feedback on the customer experience is very welcome. This can be done by emailing email@example.com.
Alongside this development comes a seismic change in the pool betting offering which means customers can be assured they will be better off betting with the Tote.
The new ‘Tote Guarantee’ ensures the Tote will always match the industry Starting Price (SP) or pay the pool price if the latter is bigger than the SP on all Win bets placed on tote.co.uk. This means customers will always receive the SP or better when placing successful Win bets with the Tote on tote.co.uk. Tote Guarantee has also been trialled on racecourses throughout February.
In 2019 the Tote Win beat SP on the winner of 2,887 races in the UK and on winning horses priced over 12/1 the Tote Win paid more than the SP 66% of the time. In the 2019 Randox Health Grand National the Tote offered a bigger price on 39 of the 40 runners, including two-time winner Tiger Roll.
This is the start of an exciting new era for the Tote and racing fans can expect numerous further developments from the Tote in the coming months. These include bigger placepot pools which will open earlier for feature meetings, including for the upcoming 2020 Cheltenham Festival; a far more data rich betting experience with a new Tote Blog and greater access to live betting information in new graphical format and the development of a new Tote App to be launched in the summer.
Mark Kemp, UK Tote Group Managing Director, said: “Racing fans and customers are at the heart of everything we are doing at the Tote. We have listened to feedback through our Tote Town Halls and want to ensure betting with the Tote is an exciting, fun and safe experience for all which offers the best possible value. Central to this is the launch of the new website and Tote Guarantee which are major
innovations for the pool betting experience.
“The Tote offers unique multileg bets, including the placepot and jackpot, and we are focused on providing greater transparency about the size of the pools and related data to help customers make informed betting choices. This is just the start of the new era for the Tote. We have numerous new developments to roll out in the coming weeks and months during what promises to be a really exciting time for the Tote.”
