Tote now comes with full sportsbook in mobile overhaul

BetFred

Online betting site Betfred have revamped their Tote business offering on mobile devices, which will now include a full sporstbook under the Totesport.com brand.

Up until now, the Totesport mobile only permitted customers to have wagers on horse racing and some of the Totepool markets. But with the revamp, the new product expansion means that the mobile offering will now include sports bets.

Totesport digital operations manager Andy Porter announced that the brand had enjoyed a record-breaking year with its weekly pool betting offering Scoop6, and they were keen to ensure that their customers got the fully enhanced experience on mobile.

“For the first time we also have a full sportsbook, so you can now back your favourite team and still have a placepot while on the go,” Porter explained.

The new mobile offering has been developed by Degree 53, a Manchester-based technology start-up, which was actually founded by Betfred’s former head of mobile development Andrew Daniels.

Totesport head of development Stuart Mcgowan said the launch was “very much the start” for the business, with more gaming verticals to be launched.

“Horse-racing will always be our main focus and we will look to develop the offering further, but we also plan to introduce a full gaming product which will be the best out there,” he explained.

Fantasy football Tote betting gets launched with TotelFootball

Totesport

Betfred, who own the UK’s Tote, have gone live in their partnership with TotelFootball. The operations of the game itself completely mimics aspects of the traditional fantasy football games, but with some added twists to it. The game was launched on betting site Totepool this week.

A competition on TotelFootball level lasts a single weekend, whereas most fantasy football games go over the course of a season. This gives punters a quick result on their betting action. Naturally, with this being a Tote product, it means that all funds come from the money bet in the pool on a certain weekend’s action.

Another twist is that customers are able to set variable stakes as well. Punters picking their teams for the TotelFootball can do so from a whole variety of top leagues, which includes the English Premier League, the Champions League, La Liga, Serie A and the German Bundesliga.

As with traditional fantasy football, the outcome of a customer’s team will all depend on how the real life players picked, perform on the weekend. The better the individuals in a customer’s team performs, then the more points will be awarded. The top ten percent of teams after the weekend’s fixtures will get a share of the prize pool.

But along with the weekend competitions, the TotelFootball game will also have a superb six-a-side competition. This will apply to live televised fixtures and the six-a-side competition could be played out on one or more live games, offering customers an even quicker turnaround.

Eddie Bennett, head of Totepool, commented: “We are excited to expand our range of pool betting products into football. Given the popularity of fantasy football we view TotelFootball’s fantasy football solution as a logical fit for our ever expanding ‘Fantasy Pools’ proposition.”

The deal between UK bookmaker Betfred and TotelFootball was agreed upon earlier in the year and now the game is live. This is Tote’s first ever step outside of horse racing, and for Betfred they become the first bookmaker to plug themselves into the TotelFootball network.

Win Funds left intact after Scoop6 and SuperScoop6 weekend

Totesport

Nobody managed to land the Scoop6 Win Fund on Saturday, March 30th, with over £44 being rolled over to next weekend’s action. It was pretty much a daily of early disappointment for players on the Scoop6, as all tickets were wiped out at the half way stage of proceedings. There were just over 9,000 tickets in the running after the first of the six races, the 1:55 at Doncaster, which was won by Educate. All but 244 of those were then knocked out as the heavily backed favourite Leader of the Gang failed to taken the win, not even getting in the places at the 2:40 at Haydock, with Fleet Dawn taking the win.

After the third race of the day, the 2:55 at Kempton Park, there was more favoritism disappointment, as Buckland upset the field to take the win, leaving just 69 tickets in the running. It was in race four, the 3:05 at Doncaster that all of the remaining tickets were wiped out totally. That was after top options Lahaag and Eshtibaak failed to get in the picture, with Levitate taking the win and no tickets riding on him. That ended the day of Scoop6 horse racing betting early.

There was success through on the Place Fund, with 14 Correct Selections, each winning £1,798.40 each, a solid return for a small stake.

There was a special day of the newly launched SuperScoop6 on April 1st as well to add to the excitement this weekend. Launched at the 2013 Cheltenham Festival, the SuperScoop6 takes in the major festivals of the calendar year, giving punters the chance to enter a big bonus pot at the end of the season. Much like Saturday’s Scoop6 Win Fund, it was a day of an early finish on the SuperScoop6 as well.

The focus was on Fairyhouse and Newcastle on Easter Monday, with five selections left in the running at the close of the fourth race of the SuperScoop6. The race was won by favourite Mcmurrough, but none of the five remaining tickets left in had backed winner Liberty Counsel who took the line in the 4:50 at Fairyhouse, the fifth race of the sixth. With all tickets knocked out, that left just over £7,000 rolling over to the next SuperScoop6. There were seven correct selections on the Place Fund, each taking £579 away.

A £2 stake is all it will take for you to have a crack at the Scoop6 big prizes. The Tote will announce the six races which make up the Scoop6 day on a Saturday and punters can use their horse racing knowledge and experience to try and pick out the six winners of each of the featured races.

That is exactly what happened on Saturday, March 16th as seven correct selections each won over £30,000 on the tote horse racing. This was a massive win, and the Scoop6 attracted new customers as well over the 2013 Cheltenham Festival as it launched its Super Scoop6 six, which will take in the top festival meetings over the course of the year.

But the regular Scoop6 last Saturday saw a massive win. Around £112,000 had been carried over from the previous weekends Scoop6 Win Fund total, giving a Prize Fund total of £216,224 for the weekend.

In the race, the number five favourite Tresor De Bontee had been heavily backed and got the day off to a good start for Scoop6 punters.

The win left well over 40,000 selections in the mix heading into the second race. With Ladies Are Forever taking the win and favourite Intransigent not placing, trimming the remaining tickets down to around 4,300. That number took another heavy hit in the third race of the day, the 2:55 at Lingfield Park, win which favourite Emell was beaten into second be Teophilip, leaving just 326 selections going forward to Race 4. Favourite Kayliff Aramis took the win there and was backed up by Farraaj delivering on his favouritism in the fifth of the six races.

That left a big sixty selections going forward into Race 6, the 3:50 at Uttoxeter.

Those seven winning selections each took away nearly £31,000 each. In the place market there were 727 correct selections each taking £81.10 for their £2 stake.

A second place finish in Race 6 ruins one punter’s £50k Scoop6 win fund hopes

Totesport

There was no winner on the Scoop6 Prize Fund this week as the popular horse racing betting market prize remained untouched. The lack of a winner means that around £55,000 will be rolling over to next weekend’s Win Fund. There was a bit more success on the Place Fund though for the March 2nd Scoop 6, with 17 correct selections walking away with £1,800 each. So not a bad weekend for those winners and shows the value of taking a punt on the Scoop6.

The March 2nd Scoop6 proceedings were over pretty quickly this week for the Win Fund at least. After Buck Magic had taken the win in the first of the six races, beating favourite Water Garden into second, there was still around 6,000 selections in the hunt for a big prize. But then with an upset in the second Scoop6 race of the day, the 2:40 at Newbury, it was Michel Le Bon’s win in the race, which left just 708 tickets in the running for the Win Fund.

That was then trimmed down to just 26 selections after Quentin Collonges took the 2:55 at Doncaster, and of those, only three were left standing following Meganisi’s win in the 3:15 at Newbury. It was certainly a day when the lack of favourites coming home ruined a lot of tickets on the Scoop6 Win Fund. There will have been one excited punter though following the fifth of the sixth race, as there was a solitary ticket going into race 6, the 3:50 at Newbury.

That lone ticket was riding on the hopes of Big Fella Thanks in the race. However, there was heartbreak for that ticket holder, with Big Fella Thanks finishing second in the race to Pache Du Polder, which meant that instead of around a £50k Win Fund prize, they were left with nothing in a pretty heartbreaking manner.

A £2 stake is all it will take for you to have a crack at the Scoop6 big prizes. The Tote will announce the six races which make up the Scoop6 day on a Saturday and punters can use their horse racing knowledge and experience to try and pick out the six winners of each of the featured races.
