Tote Jackpot has a very simple concept; the aim is to pick a winning horse in each of the six Jackpot races. The tote Jackpot is considered one of the more popular tote pool bets which takes place every day at except for Saturday where it is replaced by the Scoop6 pool bets. You can choose more than one horse in any of the races to increase your chances of winning. Picking all 6 race winners is extremely difficult and therefore win payouts are generally higher. The Jackpot races are usually the first 6 races on the card at the selected meeting unless otherwise stated.
If you only want to pick one horse from each of the 6 races then the minimum stake is £1 rising in multiples of 50p thereafter. Combination entries (more than one horse per race) are accepted with a minimum stake of 50p, rising thereafter in multiples of 50p, providing a minimum total of £2 is staked.
