You will all know the tote through your local high-street bookmaker with their range of bets including the placepot, jackpot and scoop6. The Tote pool works much like a lottery. All of the money staked goes into a pool which is then shared out amongst the winners. So the payout (or dividend) depends on how many people pick the winner. The sportsbook and fixed odds website is just as good as most and is well worth a look. They have now started to try to claw back the gap they left in the market and are offering good products and have a few great competitions to get your teeth into.
