Totesport Betting App Review

Available to new UK (including Northern Ireland) internet and mobile customers only. 18+. Full T&C Apply.

4/5

Totesport was formerly the online traditional betting operator related to the Tote which is the state run pool betting organization in the United Kingdom. The Tote was purchased by Betfred in 2011 so Totesport is now part of that group. The parent company is Petfre (Gibraltar) under which Betfred and Totesport operate. 

The parent company is registered in Gibraltar and is licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. For customers in Great Britain, the licensing and regulatory body is the UK Gambling Commission. Totesport still offers pool betting alongside conventional fixed odds pre-match and in-play betting and Games and Lotto.

This welcome offer for up to £35 has two elements and in both cases the qualifying rules are transparent and not difficult to achieve. The value of the welcome offer is about average and there are no hidden rules. The odds requirement is quite high but the bonus has to be staked just once before the customer can take out the funds.

Mobile Exclusive Sign Up Offers

Mobile customers with Totesport are not entitled to any specific offers that cannot be claimed by PC users. However, any customer registering on a mobile phone can claim the welcome bonus of £25 in the form of a free bet and the £10 Totespool refund. It is rare for an operator to offer bonuses solely for mobile customers. Conversely, betting on a mobile device does not bar any customers from the welcome offer and comprehensive range of dynamic promotions for existing customers.

The Totesport Android app is not available in the Google Play store but the APK file can be downloaded to the Totesport website. Once that process has been completed users can add an icon to the Homepage and register, making the first deposit and start betting. The app is easy to navigate and there are quick links to the betting sports and events. The mobile app features live betting and Tote betting.

The Totesport iOS app for the iPhone and iPad can be downloaded from the App Store. Potential users search on ‘Totesport’ and then follow the instructions to download the app. Once the app has been downloaded customers can login in using the existing Username and Password or create a new account. The iOS mobile app is also easy to navigate and has most of the functions of the PC version of the site.

 

Adding Totesport Mobile Site Shortcut to your Home Screen

There is also a mobile version of the Totesport site. Mobile users require a suitable browser that is optimised for mobile betting. By visiting the Totesport Homepage on a mobile device users are directed to the mobile optimised version of the site. The next stage of the process is to Add Shortcut On Home Page. The Totesport icon and link will then appear on the home screen of the mobile device. The mobile version of the site is ready for depositing funds and betting.

Totesport App Features

Players using the Totesport mobile app can benefit from the following betting services and features:

BEST ODDS GUARANTEED

Existing and new mobile customers with Totesport can take advantage of Best Odds Guaranteed (BOG) on all horse racing in the UK and Ireland. When customers take an early price and the Starting Price is different bets will be settled at the best odds. The promise applies to bets placed from 07:00 on the day of the race. System bets and ante-post bets do not qualify and any bets placed using free bets do not count.

IN PLAY

In Play is the third item on the main menu on the Homepage and the other options are Sport, Totepool, Games and Lotto. Selecting this item takes users to the in play main page. The current live events are displayed which are across several sports including football, baseball and basketball. There is also a calendar of upcoming live events, most of which are football matches. The in play interface is not the best in the industry and there is no live streaming. There is no graphical representation of the progress of play and a limited selection of live statistics. The quantity of live events is impressive despite limitations to the interface.

CASH OUT

The cash out option is available for a selection of sports and betting markets. The thinking behind cashing out bets is to guarantee a profit or limit the potential loss. The value of the cash out depends on the original odds, stake and the odds at the time of the offer. Bets can be fully or partially cashed out or the offer can be rejected. Cash out is not available on the iOS mobile release of the site.

Available to new UK (including Northern Ireland) internet and mobile customers only. 18+. Full T&C Apply.

Deposit Options

Totesport accepts deposits and allows withdrawals using debit and credit cards, e-Wallets such as Neteller and Skrill, prepaid cards and Bank Transfer. Both types of transaction are subjective to minimum and maximum limits. Deposits are immediate and free while withdrawals are subject to delays but do not carry a charge. Customers have access to a full transaction history, including payments and a betting history.

Markets

‘Sports’ is the first option on the main menu on the Homepage. The main betting events of the day are listed and there is an A-Z list of all the betting sports of which there are about 40 in total.

GENERAL

In addition to the regular sports customers can also bet on television specials, Esports and Politics. The betting sports are shown by letter and each is indicated by an icon and the name of the sport. The betting service is targeted at the UK market and the three most popular betting sports are football, horse racing and tennis.

FOOTBALL

Football is the most popular betting sport with Totesport. Matches are displayed under the headings of In Play, TV Matches, Coupons and More. Totesport covers many matches from around the world. The most popular league is the English Premier League but it was the close season at the time of writing. The Champions League final was a huge upcoming match and in 2019 the finalists were Liverpool and Tottenham who play in the Premier League.

Totesport displayed the teams with a six-match form guide. There were over 100 betting options for this match under the following headings:

  • Popular
  • Goals
  • Goal scorer
  • Cards
  • Other

The #PickYourPunt feature is Totesport’s customised betting product. Customers can create their own multiple bet by combining match events that are not available together in the regular betting. Some of these events are related so the odds are adjusted accordingly. There is also outright betting on many leagues and competitions.

HORSE RACING

Horse racing is the core traditional sport in betting offices in the UK so customers expect a decent online racing service. Totesport offers odds on all meetings in the UK and Ireland and some international fixtures. Bettors can create a customised racecard by selecting form all the day’s races. The betting options for each race include win and each way, place only, head-to-heads and betting without specified runners. Customers can bet on the unnamed 1st and 2nd favourite and forecasts.

TENNIS

Totesport provides a good tennis service which includes betting on the Grand Slams, the ATP and WTA tours, Challenger events and ITF tournaments. The betting covers singles and doubles in the men’s and women’s draws. There are about 20 markets for each match in the categories of Popular, Sets and Games. Outright betting is available for the upcoming Grand Slam tournaments.

About Totesport 

Totesport is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission which is one of the most respected regulatory bodies in the global industry. The license means betting is safe and there is no question of bets not being honoured. The online bookmaker has been operating since 2004 and since 2011 under the ownership of Betfred who have a retail division in the UK. Totesport have a reputation for fairness in a competitive market.

Bottom Line

Totesport provides an acceptable pre-match and in play betting service but there are some negatives. Other operators offer better interfaces and there is no live streaming of in play events. The odds are not the best in the industry and in some cases the number of betting markets is limited. However, safety and security compensate for some of these weaknesses and the package of promotions is impressive.
