Ryan's Thoughts"There is no doubt that Totesport is one of the most trusted and reliable betting brands around, which counts for an awful lot. A strong focus on horse racing will draw plenty of punters to the sportsbook, but there is enough depth here for fans of other sports apart from racing as well. "

  • Things We Do Not Like

  • There is simply no getting away from the fact that the Totesport website still has the kind of design that was popular in the online gambling industry about a decade ago. It can feel a little like going back in time to use the Totesport site if you are used to being on sites that boast all mod cons.

VIP Loyalty Program

Totesport does not seem to be running any VIP Loyalty Program on the sportsbook at present.

Mobile Betting App Features on Tablets and Smartphones

Totesport does not have an app you can download on to your smartphone or tablet, which is a shame as most bookies that would consider themselves rivals of the firm have this by now. The Totesport mobile site is almost good enough to make up for the lack of an app, however. A new Quickbet feature means wagers can be placed rapidly, so you never have to miss out. Placepot, Scoop6, Quadpot, Win, Place, Exacta and Trifecta are all available on Totesport's mobile site.

Maximum Winnings

Totesport gets ahead of many of its competitors in the world of online sports betting when it comes to maximum payouts, with a cool £1 million up for grabs for those who join the bookmaker. The seven-figure fee is up for grabs for bets in the horse racing in the UK or Ireland that are covered by a full service. For Ante-Post racing, the maximum payout limit at Totesport is set at £250,000, the same amount that can be won by betting on greyhound racing on this sportsbook.

Football fans are catered for well by Totesport as well, with £1 million on offer for all of the main European leagues, as well as international competitions. Golf bets have a maximum payout of £500,000, but only £100,000 can be won on the majority of other sports covered by Totesport.

Football Accumulators

No football accumulator promotion is currently running on Totesport, but the company is offering its Double Delight Hat-Trick Heaven offer. Users betting on the first goalscorer market will get double their winnings if their chosen player hits the first goal of the game and goes on to score another goal. If they score three in total, then the wager will be repaid with trebled winnings.

Customer Service

Customer service is much easier to find on Totesport's website compared to some bookies. There is a detailed FAQ section if you do not mind looking for answers yourself, but contact details can be found in just a click or two. Account holders can email [email protected] or call 0800 032 8188 to speak to a Totesport customer service agent. For those outside the UK, the number to call is +44(0) 1925 907520.

Totesport customer service is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which beats some bookmakers that still fail to provide this. Live chat is on offer as well, but this is the one aspect of the Totesport customer service that appears to be quite well hidden, which is a shame.

In Conclusion / Our Verdict

Whether or not Totesport is the bookie for you depends very much on your requirements. Those who only really want to bet on horse racing and football will find a Totesport account to be very useful, with access to the Totepool the main selling point of the bookmaker. Maximum payouts of £1 million for racing and football - and £500,000 for golf - are also very high, which is a good thing.

But the Totesport website is probably one of the worst around and the lack of an app to bet while on the move will be frustrating for those who place the majority of their bets on mobile devices. There is not a lot of depth in Totesport betting markets away from racing and football either. Check out the Totesport sportsbook for yourself, sign up for an account, and see if it suits your needs.
