Totesport is yet another bookmaker with a reliable track record of fair gaming practices and timely payouts. The reputation of the firm is guaranteed by the fact that their operations come under the purview of the Gambling Commission of UK. Though definitely being one of the popular bookmakers in the UK, Totesport doesn’t figure among the best, primarily because of a few but significant limitations.
Join us as we take a closer look at what this bookmaker has in store for its players.
How To Open An Account
As with other bookmaker registrations, new members are required to submit their personal information including name, contact address, email id and date of birth before proceeding to create an account with a login id and password. Account holders must be over 18 years of age.
Opening a new account is simply a breeze. Once the account is created, it is time to avail the Free Bet Bonus and put it to good use!
Special Offers: Promo codes, Deposit Bonus + Free Bets
New members get to avail a £25 FREE bet bonus as a welcome offer. When they register, deposit and bet £25 at any odds, bonus funds are released instantly irrespective of the outcome. Totesport refunds the stake as a free bet even if the player loses the gamble, while winners land up with a healthier account balance. Totesport is actually focused on managing its existing markets impeccably. It, however, doesn’t really splurge on promotions to increase its client base.
Promotional offers are a few and limited to horse racing, NFL, rugby and football. Backed by luck, players can expect to be rewarded well at Tote Jackpot and Totepool, which are simple guessing games where lesser the number of correct entries, greater is the bounty share.
But these promotions are time-bound and it’s important for players to check out information featured at the site for the latest offers so that they don’t miss out on good deals.
Deposits + Withdrawals: Getting Your Cash Out
As we’ve observed, an initial deposit is often necessary to unlock a welcome bonus at most sites, and Totesport is no exception. Players will need to deposit £25 and wager the amount on any market to earn a matching free bet. All the standard card payment methods are supported, in addition to Skrill (formerly called Moneybookers).
Withdrawals are hassle-free and Totesport lives up to its reputation of honouring payouts in a prompt and consistent manner.
Sports You Can Bet on at Totesport
We noticed that most of the popular sport betting markets are active at Totesport. However, the choice when compared to competitor sites was somewhat limited to just football, rugby, boxing, tennis, cricket, ice hockey, snooker, golf and horse racing, greyhound and motorsports.
The site at present features other sports such as darts, bowls, cycling (Tour de France 2017, Eneco Tour 2016 and other events), eSports, reality TV shows and also politics.
In addition, there are restrictions on the number of bets per event, which further narrow down the punters choices and earning chances as well. In-play live betting options, though available, are also restricted to select high-profile games. But lack of comprehensive, real-time information proves to be a drawback when compared to live streaming available at other bookmakers.
Select large-scale events do occasionally surface for betting on Totesport. Weekends reportedly offer a better betting experience when compared to the work week.
Casino Games at Totesport
Totesport casino games feature a decent collection including classic table games of blackjack, roulette and cards, a variety of entertaining slots, and other games as well. The bookmaker, thus, caters to the gaming preferences of players who aren’t that enthusiastic about following sporting action. Sports buffs too can indulge in casual gaming to beat that occasional heat from live sport betting.
Bingo at Totesport
We understand that bingo at Totesport, reportedly a rewarding and popular game, is being revamped. We were not able to locate the bingo gaming option on the Totesport website at the time of this review. Bingo enthusiasts will need to wait for their favourite game to return to the site, probably all spruced up. We hope so too!
Mobile App: Android + iOS Review
The Totesport mobile app is available for both Android and iOS platforms, offering a great opportunity for both existing and new players to catch up with their favourite pastime on the go.
Live in-play sports betting, mobile games and Totepool betting are now available on the player’s mobile device, making it a breeze to follow or bet on live action, cash out the winner’s pool, or enjoy mobile gaming anytime.
The mobile interface is organised well and it allows players to keep track of key real-time facts via Racing Post Data, while the Quick Bet feature claims to speed up betting process by doing away with the bet slip. Players can also simply text their selection and stake to a preset number in order to place a bet.
There is a special welcome offer to new members using the mobile app. They get to avail £5 cashback on mobile games.
Given the statistics available, Totesport no doubt is a great bookmaker when it comes to reliability, as the player’s interests are safeguarded, deposits kept secure, and withdrawals are hassle-free. However, the lack of live streaming of sporting events sort of takes the excitement away from sports gambling. This could also prove a deterrent for ardent sports betters, who prefer to closely watch the game, and listen to commentaries, especially when the stakes are high, rather than just follow textual updates on screen. As for sports markets, Totesport is right on target, trying to bridge the gap by covering most popular sport events and also the offbeat ones, going by the details listed on their website.
Regular promotions with better bonus options, a higher number of bets against each sporting category, and the bingo game that is supposed to be back in action is bound to increase the competitiveness at Totesport and get the bookie back in the race.
