Why Sign Up With Tote Before the Grand National Meeting

The Tote was formerly the state bookmaker in the UK but it is now in private hands. The operation is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) which is one of the most trusted regulatory bodies in the industry. The company has a retail division and trades on racecourses in the UK. The core products are pool bets for horse racing.

Customers can bet on racing in the UK and Ireland. The range of bets includes singles and more exotic bets. The Tote Grand National betting offer will be one of the best in the business. The Tote Guarantee provides a good incentive to open an account with Tote, make an initial deposit and bet in one of the pools.

Guide to the Tote Grand National Betting Offer

At the time of writing there is no specific Tote Grand National betting offer for new and existing customers. The 2020 Grand National takes place on Saturday, April 4 and this review was completed at the start of February.

We can anticipate a Tote Grand National betting offer and the Tote Guarantee applies. However, customers with the Tote who are looking to place Grand National bets can claim the welcome bonus of £10 in the form of a risk free bet. The welcome bonus is subject to the following Terms & Conditions:

  • New customers only and existing customers are not eligible.
  • Minimum deposit of £1.
  • Qualifying bet on Pools.
  • If the first bet loses customers will receive a full refund.
  • First Tote bet is matched for up to £10.
  • Tote general Terms & Conditions apply.

The welcome bonus is for a small amount but it is a genuine 100% matched deposit bonus. The value of the free bet equates to the value of the qualifying bet. The welcome bonus is transparent and achievable. However, the headline value does not provide a great incentive to open an account.

However, as part of the Tote Grand National betting offer there could be more lucrative bonuses. Once customers have registered they can place Totepool bets such as the Tote Jackpot and Tote Placepot and enter the Tote Ten To Follow. These bet types will form part of the Tote Grand National betting service. There should be more offers for the race in April.

How does the Tote Guarantee work?

At the time of writing the only promotion for existing customers was the Tote Guarantee. This is similar to Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) with other bookmakers. That promotion is a promise to settle bets at the best odds, either the board or early price or the Starting Price.

The Tote Guarantee compares the tote win dividend and the industry standard SP. Bets are settled at the better odds for all win bets. This guarantee applies throughout the year but it will also be a feature of the Tote Grand National betting offer. The Tote offers a number of Totepool bets including the Tote Jackpot and Tote Placepot. The Tote Ten To Follow is a free to enter competition.

Tote Guarantee Terms & Conditions

The Tote Guarantee will form part of the Totepool Tote Grand National betting offer and is subject to the following Terms & Conditions:

  • Tote win bets and the win part of each way bets qualify.
  • The Guarantee compares the SP with the Tote win dividend.
  • Rule 4 deductions are taken into account.
  • Dead heat rules apply.
  • Maximum stake of £500.
  • Specific race meetings in the UK.
  • General Tote Terms & Conditions also apply.

The Tote Guarantee is unique to Totepool betting. The operator declares a dividend depending on the money in the pool. The industry SP is a sample of the odds on offer on British racecourses which is sent to bookmakers. There will be a dividend and SP as part of tote Grand National betting.

Guide to Getting the Tote Guarantee

Here is a step by step guide to enjoying the benefits of the Tote Guarantee:

  • Potential new customers visit the Home Page of the Tote website.
  • Register a new account.
  • Deposit betting funds.
  • Place a win Totepool bet on specific race meetings in the UK.
  • No bets over £500 allowed.
  • Bets settled at the bigger price of the SP or win dividend.

The Tote Guarantee will be in operation as part of the Tote Grand National betting service before and during the Grand National Festival. Many online operators offer customers a promo code bonus after registration. This page will be updated when new promotions are announced.

The range of promotions should increase when Tote Grand National betting appears on the site. Customers can place ante post bets on the winner of the Grand National. At the time of writing the Tote do not offer non-runner/no bet on the Grand National. This concession may be introduced nearer the day of the race. It will be an important element of Tote Grand National betting.

Tote Grand National Betting Promotions

The operator has not announced any Tote Grand National betting promotions but we can expect the operator to introduce some typical offers. The Grand National is the biggest betting race of the season and it attracts many once a year punters.

The race provides a good opportunity to attract new customers and maintain the loyalty of existing customers. The Tote should have a range of typical Grand National betting promotions which could include the following:

Money Back

Customers with the Tote could get money back if the horse they bet on does not get a run in the Grand National. This could be due to the horse refusing to race or falling at the first fence. In some cases there might be a refund if the backed horse does not complete the first circuit.

The money back refund comes in the form of a free bet or betting funds that can be withdrawn. The refund can be limited to £50 and is credited as soon as the race is over. The money back offer is an important element of the Tote Grand National betting.

Enhanced Odds

The Tote could enhance the odds for selected runners in the Grand National. The odds boost could apply to the race favourite or some of the outsiders. A typical odds boost could be 10/1 to 12/1 for a limited stake.

Bets are settled at the enhanced odds for this stake and any additional bets are settled at the regular odds. Enhanced odds are generally announced in the days leading up to the race. Customers look forward to these offers as part of Tote Grand National betting.

Best Odds Guaranteed

Customers with the Tote may enjoy Best Odds Guaranteed on the Grand National. If they take an early price and the Starting Price is different, bets are settled at the best odds. The guarantee is limited by stake and there are conditions about the types of qualifying bets.

However, BOG can be a key element of the Tote Grand National betting service. The concession usually applies from the morning of the Grand National until the first betting show.

Non-Runner/No Bet

In normal circumstances if a backed horse in ante-post betting is withdrawn before the day of the race, all bets are losers. However, bookmakers like the Tote introduce the non-runner/no bet concession in the weeks leading up to the Grand National.

Bets on withdrawn horses are refunded. The horses are declared non-runners so bets don’t stand for Tote Grand National betting purposes. The NRNB concession should be announced towards the end of March because the Grand National takes place on the first Saturday in April.

Extra Places

The Grand National is a handicap with more than 16 runners so each way bets are settled at one quarter the odds for four places. However, the Tote could offer extra places. Customers could have winning each way bets for horses that finish in the first 5 or 6.

There might be less value in the odds but the extra places concession can be a popular part of Tote Grand National betting. Extra places are announced in the week before the Grand National.

Tote Ten To Follow

The Tote Ten To Follow is a competition whereby entrants select 10 horses running in the UK during the jumps season. Points are awarded depending on how the horses perform. Competitors select their stable of horses from a list of over 500 horses. The leaderboard is constantly being updated and can be seen on the Tote website and in the racing Press. This is a popular area in the Tote Grand National betting service.

There is a monthly and overall prize from a total prize fund of at least £250,000. There are cash prizes for the top 100 entries at the end of the season and monthly prizes. The winner picks up 70% of the total prize fund which equates to almost £178,00.00. The prizes are listed on a sliding scale and at the time of writing the players at 51 to 100 in the standings receive about £25.00.

Ten To Follow

Entrants choose a stable of 10 horses from a list of more than 500. There are bonus point’s races, including the Grand National. Most lists will include a horse prominent in the betting for the race. The Tote Ten To Follow complements the Tote Grand National betting service. The bonus races include all the Grade 1 races at the Cheltenham Festival.

Customers with the Tote can select from a range of Totepool bets. The betting model is a pool whereby dividends are declared based on the money in the pool. The operator takes a percentage for providing the platform and the remaining fund is then distributed amongst bettors.

Totepool bets will be an important element of the Tote Grand National betting service. In most cases permutations are allowed which means bettors can make a number of selections from each race for all types of bet. Here are the bets:

Tote Win/Place

Select a horse to win the race, be placed or in one each way bet. Standard place terms apply.

Tote Exacta
