Ireland’s Tote will be available on the high street after a deal with a British-owned bookie chain.

Under the agreement, over 200 shops run by Ladbrokes plc will offer Irish Tote betting on horseracing in Eire and the UK.

Guarantees

Ladbrokes boss Joe Lewins said: “We’re very keen to support Irish horse racing. It’s a progressive move for us and part of our ongoing policy to try and give something back to our customers.

“Making large pools of money available to our customers for a small stake is core to this policy and we look forward to celebrating our first big in-shop Tote win.”

Alexis Murphy, Chief Executive of Tote Ireland said: “We expect there’ll be particular interest in big Placepot pools in Ireland and the UK, not to mention the forthcoming Jackpot guarantees at Galway and other festivals.”

Tote Ireland operates a totalisator at all Irish racecourses including a credit betting service and a betting web site. Profits made by Tote Ireland are returned to racing.

Earlier this year the UK Tote signed a similar agreement with Betfair to allow customers to bet on the UK Tote via their online account.
