Totesport Review & Free Bet

When you think of sport bookies that have a colourful history, perhaps none can top that which is Totesport; considering that the company was founded by the man Winston Churchill himself. The Tote was originally started back in 1927 and was entirely centred around horse racing, as the name suggests. Now in recent times the company has branched out and moved into all sorts of different territories, as they provide their customers with an experience involving games, lotto and of course their coveted sportsbook.

Website – Layout & Interface:

Totesport has chosen a layout which uses a good combination of greens and greys/black to tie their sports homepage together. The menus are highlighted with a green trim which makes it look like a very professional job and Totesport has done a great job of keeping adverts to a minimum and thus giving them more space to work with.

In the top left-hand corner you will find the Totesport logo and on the opposite side of the page is the signup/login section. Directly below is a menu that travels horizontally across the homepage and features links to the various other sections of Totesports website, such as lotto, games, promotions, sports, in-play betting and much more.

Down the left hand side of the page are a series of menus that house important information like racing highlights, betting highlights, a complete A-Z list of sporting markets, live commentary and lastly there is an option to choose how the odds are displayed throughout the website.

The Totesport bet slip is featured on the right of the homepage, on a drop down menu. This is a nice addition as it doesn’t take up much room and you can choose for it to be visible whenever you require it to be.


Players at Totesport will have access to a wide range of sporting markets, such as Horse Racing, Tennis, Football, Winter Sports, MMA, Volleyball, Rugby Union, TV Shows / Specials, Snooker, Lottery Specials, Rugby League, Politics, Hurling, Motor Sports, Ice Hockey, Golf, Handball, Greyhounds, Darts, Gaelic Football, eSports, Boxing, Cycling, Cricket, Aussie Rules, Basketball, Baseball, Athletics and American Football.

We inspected the kinds of betting markets that customers at Totesport would be experiencing and were, overall, very happy with what we found. Football fans would find markets such as Correct Score, Both Teams to Score, Half-Time/Full-Time, Score in Both Halves, Handicap, Double Chance, Half-Time Result, Double Chance and Both Teams to Score, To Win to Nil, Half-Time Correct Score, Clean Sheet, Highest Scoring Half, Total Goals Odd/Even, Highest Scoring Half, First Team to Score and plenty of others.

Welcome Bonus & Promotions:

As a welcome bonus, Totesport are offering players the chance to have a risk free bet of up to £25. This means that if your first bet loses, Totesport will refund your initial stake back into your account as a free bet. There are some terms and conditions relating to this but for once there isn’t a minimum odds required stipulation, which makes this welcome bonus even more enticing.

After working your way through your welcome bonus, there are a few other sports promotions up for grabs, such as best odds guaranteed for UK & Irish horse racing, price boosts for specific horse races, hat-trick heaven and Super League double delight, to name a few.

In-Play Betting:

As far as live betting goes, Totesport has sculpted a quality in-play betting console with a whole host of different markets for customers to bet on, such as Football, Basketball, Cricket, Golf, Darts, Snooker, Baseball, Volleyball and eSports.

It isn’t all about having a good range of sports, it is always important to be able to back them up with a quality set of betting markets and giving customers as much choice as possible. Fortunately, at Totesport this is the case and players will be able to choose from Both Teams to Score, Half-Time Result, Double Chance, Match Result & Both Teams to Score, Correct Score, Match Result, Draw No Bet, Handicap, Double Chance, To Win to Nil, Clean Sheet and depending on when you check there could be even more, especially for the bigger games.

Mobile & Tablet:

If you are looking for the most enthralling portable Totesport experience, we have to recommend their dedicated mobile betting app, in this case. Everything that you could possibly need from the desktop version has been incorporated and yet the app still takes up very little storage and is very fast and efficient.

If downloading software isn’t on your agenda, you can head over to Totesport from your mobile browser for a scaled down version of the site that will perform similarly to the application, this is definitely going to appeal to some players and is a nice way to do things, especially if you are unsure if you will stick with the Tote.

Payment Methods:

When crediting or withdrawing funds from your Totesport account, there are a few different methods in which you can choose to do so. These include Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa Electron, Skrill, Paysafecard, Neteller and PayPal. It’s great to see a healthy amount of e-wallets thrown in for good measure as these are becoming very popular amongst customers, in recent times.

Customer Support:

No matter what time of the day or night, help is always on hand at Totesport and players can choose from a few different methods to get in touch. Totesport responds to their players via email, telephone, post and also live chat; it is also worth noting that their telephone number is a free phone number for all players within the UK.


We were particularly pleased with the experience that has been provided by Totesport and they are ticking all of the right boxes currently, whether it’s promotions, markets or just having people on hand to help customers when they need it, you really feel as though they have covered all situations. They even have a mobile application to add to the many reasons as to why players are heading over to the Tote in droves and when you combine this with their fantastic in-play console, the results are extremely positive.
