Totesport - Full-Service Sports Betting & Gaming
The "tote" was established in England by Act of Parliament in 1928 and has grown to become the fourth largest bookmaker in the UK. Tote currently employs some 3500 workers at over 500 betting shops and all 60 racecourses across Britain. Its presence on the Internet is known as Totesport.
Although Totesport may still be synonymous with horse racing, the bookmaker's aspirations certainly did not stop there. Most recently, Totesport has consolidated all of its online betting and gambling activities on one dynamic web site. From a single portal, visitors can now access not only the Totesport Racing and Sports Book but also its Casino, Games, and Bingo.
Games to Play
Bookmaking will always be the core competency at Totesport. Just a click on the Racing tab brings up all of the day's races at all of the tracks in Britain. There are plenty of convenience features to assist handicappers here, from a graphic display of the next three horse races coming up to quick picks and futures. Data on jockeys, horses, tracks, breeding, and results is just a click away. Custom race cards can be built; best odds are guaranteed; and there are even sections for U.S. races and virtual racing.
In the Sports section of the web site, fixed odds are offered on all major sporting events. Bettors can take their pick of football (soccer), tennis, golf, or motor sports. There are areas for betting on American football, basketball, and baseball. Rugby Union, Rugby League, cricket, snooker, darts, and greyhounds are all represented, too.
Two special sports-related tabs have been provided for "bet in play" and "totepool". These are especially useful for those who enjoy wagering while a contest is going on or participating in jackpot-type football betting pools.
Complementing these wagering areas are links to Totesport News, Totesport Radio, and Live Totepool Information. A new function that allows betting via text message has also been installed.
In the Casino area, players can avail themselves of all the most popular table games, card games, video poker, and slots, as well as progressives such as Gold Rally with prizes in excess of £1 million. More than 100 games can be accessed via download or I Instant Play mode. There is also a "Play for Fun" feature that allows sampling of the games risk-free prior to registration.
Bingo at Totesport is played in four dedicated rooms, each with chat games, instant games, and mini games attached to complement the 75-ball and 90-ball games. Card prices start at as little as 2p; jackpots like the "Dream Maker" run as high as £25,000.
One other area to explore on Totesport is Games, where the Internet's hottest attractions can be found. Popular slot games such as Fantastic Four and Monopoly are joined by new challenges, from Rubik's Riches and Deal or No Deal to Cluedo, Street Fighter II, and four different versions of Chain Reactors. There are table games, arcade games, numbers, hi/lo, bingo/keno, and scratch cards, too - literally dozens of distractions at every turn.
Bonuses to Claim
Totesport offers newcomers a wealth of reasons to register and get into the action. New Casino players receive a 100% cash bonus match on their first deposit up to £100. Emerald Club membership is automatic once the bonus is claimed, and then players are eligible for a 50% bonus on the first deposit every month, up to a maximum of £50 in free cash.
New bingo players receive £10 just for signing up, plus a 200% matching bonus on their first deposit up to £100. Totesport Bingo features an A-List loyalty program, too, which rewards regulars with Bingo Comps, VIP Levels, and plenty of pampering.
