If you are unfamiliar with Tote Betting, the Punchestown Festival offers a great opportunity to discover the value Tote can offer above the bookmakers.

Win Betting & Beating SP

A Win Bet is a Win Bet!

With the Bookmakers, you take a fixed price while with Tote you take a share in the pool meaning you cannot be 100% sure of your final payout until the winner is declared. Generally Tote tends to be close to the bookies price for short priced horses and much better on longer shots. For example, in the 2017 Punchestown Champion Hurdle Tote paid €15.20 for €1, compared to the SP of 12/1.

On one race (Killashee H’Cap Hurdle), Tote paid a huge 52% more than SP!
This year Tote will make up the difference on any Win Bets of €10 to €100 if the Tote Price falls short of the SP price. That means over the course of the Punchestown, punters will earn more by betting with Tote.

Place Only Betting

Place only betting is available with Tote for all racing!

Exacta & Trifecta

Picking the horses to come 1st and 2nd (Exacta) or 1st, 2nd and 3rd (Trifecta).

These bets can be played in a variety of combinations and offer some large payouts. The Trifecta paid as much as €6344 for €1 on a single race in Punchestown 2017 (the Tricast paid €3891 on the same race).

Jackpot, Placepot & Pick 6

The unique Tote bets with really big opportunities to win. These bets will see big daily guarantees and likely some very big rollovers if not won.

These bets require some strategy as you build your selections to get through the 6 (Pick 6 & Placepot) or 4 (Jackpot) legs of the bet. It can be well worth it though, on Day 1 of Punchestown 2017 the Pick 6 paid a staggering €90k for a €1 stake! While on the same day, the Jackpot paid €5,811 for €1.

Tote vs SP Punchestown Price Guarantee

Tote will match the SP price, if it is greater than the Tote Price, on Win Bets from €10 to €100. See thetote.com for Terms.
