Tote Scoop 6
The Scoop 6 is formed through Totesport whom are owned by the UK government. This form of betting is described to be as big as the lottery in which the pool can reach up to millions of pounds meaning that you are in with a chance of winning big. The Scoop 6 competition is held only on Saturday where you can watch it live on television.
How does it work?
The way it works is that you will need to try and find the winners or placed horses in the six chosen races. The races which you will be betting on are picked by Totesport on Friday. You will find that they will select highly competitive races that are shown on Channel 4 TV as the channel is the main hub to publicise the bet.
Tote Scoop 6 minimum bet is £2 in which you are able to try out the bet as many times as you want. Once a bet of £2 is placed this will entitle you to one selection in each of the six races selected by Totesport. If you decide to select two in each of the six races then this would give you 64 pickings worth of bets. An example of the betting format is as shown below:
· Leg one: two selections
· Leg two: two selections
· Leg three: two selections
· Leg four: two selections
· Leg five: two selections
· Leg six: two selections
To work out the number of Scoop 6 bets you are entitled to is easy as shown below:
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 64 Scoop 6 bets at £2 (minimum stake) each = £128
If you find you are a winner in each race then you will win the amount of money in the tote pool. Once the winners are announced and more than one winner is noted then the Scoop 6 pool is divided according to the number of winners. When there are no winners for that weekend the prize pool will be carried to the following Saturday. As the pool grows this would mean that there are a few carryovers.
Furthermore there is also a Scoop 6 consolation dividend where if you have managed to get a placed horse in each of the six Scoop 6 race then you will win a share of the place dividend. This will be based on you getting right the placed horse on all six Scoop6 races held.
