This article will take a closer look at this fantastic little bet.
How the totescoop6 works
Every Saturday, six televised races are selected from all the day's racing. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to pick the winner from all six.
Well, no one said this would be easy but the prize on offer is frequently over £100,000 and can reach £1 Million!
Even if you don't find all the winners, there is still a prize fund which you will win a share of if all your selections finish in the places. Even this can be a very decent amount - and all for just a £2 stake!
The races are published on the totesport website. and you can keep up with the progress of the prize fund by watching the Channel 4 racing coverage on a Saturday.
If there is no winner one week, the prize fund rolls over to the next week and this is where things can get really interesting as the bigger the prize-fund, the more interest it generates and so the fund gets bigger and bigger.
totescoop6 v Lotto
Yes, there are some similarities to how this bet works and the National Lottery however, there is one very big distinction: The Lottery is down to pure chance whilst skill, judgement (and yes, luck) are all involved in winning the totescoop6 prize.
The races used aren't all handicaps with massive fields either - races of 8-10 runners are common so you are not putting your money on a 14 Million to One chance! With the tote Scoop6 it really could be you!
How to Get Involved
To take part in the totescoop6, you will need to open an account with totesport. At the moment, they are offering £25 in free bets.
