totejackpot guaranteed to £25,000 on first day of Chester meeting
Tomorrow’s totejackpot will be guaranteed to the tune of £25,000 at Chester despite racegoers not being able to place a pool bet at the racecourse for the first time since 1928.
The May meeting sees the launch of ChesterBET on the Roodee where the racecourse will return their own Racecourse Prices (RPs) which will essentially be 10% less than the official Starting Price (SP).
This follows on from Chester's sister course Bangor who have operated their own BangorBET returns at two meetings since the beginning of April. At Bangor's meeting last Friday, totewin dividends were bigger than the BangorBET returns on all six races.
However, the entire range of totepool bets will be available for punters to bet on at Chester this week through totepool.com and totepool mobile as well as any bookmaker offering the Tote Direct service.
“We’d like to remind anyone attending Chester over the next three days to make sure they get their wagers on early as they will not be able to place bets on their favourite Tote products at the racecourse itself,” said totepool spokesman George Primarolo.
Punters will also be able to get 10% cashback this week on all multi-leg pool bets (totejackpot, toteplacepot and totequadpot) and well as 5% cashback on all single-leg pool bets via totepool.com and totepool mobile.
