Betting with the Tote
The tote is a “pool betting” system. All money placed on a race is put into a pool, the tote retains a percentage of this pool with the rest shared between the winning ticket owners. Tote screens are a guide to the price at the moment you place your bet but the actual price isn’t known until the betting closes at the sound of the bell – the indicator for the start of the race.
Types of Bets
Win : Pick one dog to win, if your greyhound wins – so do you! Minimum bet €2
Place: Pick one dog to come in either first of second place, if the dog comes in first of second – you win! Minimum Bet €2
Each Way: This is a win bet plus a place bet on one single greyhound. Your dog must come in first or second for you to claim winnings. If the dog wins you collect the win and the place bet, if your dog comes in second you will receive the place bet winnings only. Minimum bet €4
