With five of the six winners at Sunday’s Newton Abbot meeting being sent off as favourites, punters took the bookies to the cleaners and those who were involved in the Tote Jackpot saw a return of £5,390.50 to a £1 stake.
The Tote jackpot is fast becoming one of the most popular bets in horse racing after paying out over £1m for the second time in a fortnight.
Following on from Steve Whiteley’s £1.4m win at Sandown 12 days ago, Newton Abbot produced a Tote Jackpot pool of £1.36m which was shared by 179.24 winning units.
Ladbrokes offers customers the chance to place bets with the Tote through their online sportsbook and new customers to Ladbrokes.com can sign up here to claim up to £60 in free bets.
Betting with the Tote on their Jackpot, Placepot and Exacta markets offers punters the chance of making huge returns from a small stake, and with these markets available on all race meetings across the UK every day, there are plenty of opportunities for punters to take advantage.
Today’s Tote Jackpot focuses on the racing at Exeter, although punters are afforded the chance to win without backing a winner by placing a bet on the Totepool.
Over the last 12 months, the average placepot dividend has been £504 to a £1 stake when punters have picked a place horse in each of the first six races at a chosen meeting.
