As a collaboration of global Totes, World Pool enables bettors from all over the globe to bet into a single pool, the result being enormous liquidity, and a multi-million pound betting experience.
Due to the dynamic nature of the pool, customers can receive higher pay outs than they would receive with bookmakers. In the UK, the Tote operates Tote Guarantee which means the UK and Irish pools will always match or exceed the industry Starting Price (SP) on Win bets.
From the 17 World Pool events that took place in Britain and Ireland in 2021, there was £363 million bet into the pool. These huge pools meant that if you’d placed a £1 bet on each winner on the 17 World Pool days on British and Irish racing in 2021, you’d have a 15% higher return compared with the industry SP.
At Royal Ascot in 2021, UK Tote customers saw the Tote+ Win price beat the Industry SP (Starting Price) on 21 occasions across the 35 races, and match on the remaining 14 occasions due to Tote Guarantee. This resulted in a 11% higher return compared to SP for Tote+ bets placed on their site.
Betting with World Pool also means customers can place bets without getting restricted for being successful, as well as having an opportunity for large pay outs through exotic bets.
Key benefits of World Pool include:
- Bigger and more stable pools to bet into
- Potential for higher pay outs compared with industry SP
- Customers are not restricted for being successful and winning
- Larger pay outs from exotic bets, compared with the equivalent bets offered by bookmakers
UK Tote customers will be able to bet into the World Pool on both days of The Cazoo Derby.
