Tote Scoop 6

A totescoop6 bet is available each week across six Saturday races, referred to as legs, designated by the Tote. The legs may be from one or more race meetings that day.

Rules Summary
The lowest level of selection is one line of six horses, one in each leg, which costs the minimum unit stake of £2. However, any number of horses in each leg can be selected to make a permutation with each line of the permutation costing £2.

Bets are accepted up to 'off' of the first of the six totescoop6 legs.

Each £2 stake unit goes into a central pool where it is divided into a Win Fund, a Place Fund and a Bonus Fund in the ratio of 7:4:3 respectively.

The Win Fund dividend is won by all players who have selected all six winning horses and each winner of the Win Fund is eligible to register, via the Bonus Race Hotline (see Rules Detail for telephone number), to qualify and play for the Bonus Fund the following Saturday.

The Place Fund dividend is paid to all players who have selected a horse placed in each of the six legs.

The Bonus Fund dividend is won by any player who, having won the Win Fund and subsequently registered to qualify, selects the winner of the totepool nominated Bonus Fund race on the following Saturday.

Rules Detail

Selection
Selections for each of the totescoop6 legs must be indicated by their racecard number, horse name or the un-named favourite. Should the racecard number of an overnight-declared runner be allocated to a reserve horse, the reserve horse(s) will be re-numbered sequentially in line with totepool On Course Rules.

Starting Price Favourite
Should a selection be omitted or become a non-runner, the Starting Price favourite will be substituted. Where there are joint favourites, the joint favourite with the lowest racecard number will be taken.

Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders and too late for a new favourite to be made, the horse returned at the next shortest price will be taken. Where two or more horses are returned at the next shortest price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If no Starting Price is returned the first actual runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be taken. Should the Racing Post not publish a betting forecast, settlement will be made in line with totepool On Course Rules.

Win Fund
To win a dividend from the Win Fund, the winning horse in each of the day's designated totescoop6 legs must be correctly selected. If there is no outright winner of the Win Fund, the respective portion of the pool will be rolled over to the next totescoop6 Win Fund as decided by the Tote.
Win Fund winners having correctly selected each of the six winners of the totescoop6 legs qualify to compete in the Bonus Fund, see below, provided they register with the totescoop6 Bonus Race Hotline within the required deadline.

Place Fund
To win a dividend from the Place Fund, a horse on which a toteplace dividend would normally be declared must be selected in each of the day's nominated totescoop6 legs or where due to insufficient runners no Place pool is operated on a totescoop6 leg, the horse winning that leg must be selected. If there is no outright winner of the Place Fund, the respective portion of the pool will be rolled over to the next totescoop6 Place Fund as decided by the Tote.

Bonus Fund
To win a dividend from the Bonus Fund the winning horse of the Bonus Race nominated by the Tote must be correctly selected.

Those eligible to participate for the Bonus Fund must call the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418 from the UK, +44 1942 613 082 from all other countries) to register as a Bonus Race qualifier before 6pm on the Thursday prior to Saturday's nominated Bonus Race. Failure to register will result in the claimant being unable to compete in the Bonus Fund. Claimants should also state if they have more than one winning line as they will be entitled to one entry per winning line.
Qualifiers who register to play for the Bonus Fund may be asked to agree to full media publicity. Qualifiers who agree to media publicity may be requested by the Tote to appear at a racecourse or other venue in which case the Tote will arrange and pay for reasonable transport and accommodation costs.

If there are no registered qualifiers for the Bonus Fund or no registered qualifier selects the winner of the Bonus Race, the Bonus Fund will be rolled over to future totescoop6 Bonus Fund(s) as decided by the Tote.

The nominated Bonus Race will be announced by 12.30pm on the Friday prior to the Bonus Race and registered qualifiers must call the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418 from the UK and +44 1942 613 082 from all other countries) again between 12.30pm and 6pm that Friday or on Saturday between 9am and one hour before the advertised 'off' of the Bonus Race to place their bet selection (or selections if they have more than one winning line).

It is the responsibility of registered qualifiers to register their selections on the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418 from the UK, +44 1942 613 082 from all other countries). In the event of a selection not being received before the required time, the Starting Price favourite, in accordance with the selection rules above, will be allocated.

Should a Bonus Race bet selection become a non-runner, registered qualifiers will have the option up to 30 minutes prior to the advertised 'off' of the Bonus Race to make a new selection. Should no new selection be received or should a selection become a non-runner less than 30 minutes before the advertised 'off-time' of the Bonus Race, then the Starting Price favourite, in accordance with the selection rules above, will be allocated.

In the event of the nominated Bonus Race not taking place or being declared void for any reason, the Tote reserves the right to nominate an alternative race on the same or a future day as the Bonus Race.

In the event of a totescoop6 leg being declared void, the totescoop6 will operate on the remaining legs. Should totescoop6 be decided on less than six legs the Bonus Fund will not operate and that day's Bonus Fund (excluding any carry-over, which will be rolled over to future Bonus fund(s)) will be divided equally between the Win Fund and Place Fund.
