How the Scoop6 works and a guide to betting on it
What is the Scoop6?
- Every Friday and Saturday, six races will be selected to make up that day's Scoop6. It’s up to you to find the winners of those contests.
- Costing just £2 per bet, this popular pool often returns dividends of tens of thousands and sometimes hundreds of thousands of pounds to the winners.
- The total prize pool will be divided up between any individuals who have successfully picked out all six winners in the chosen races.
Choosing your runners
If you think one of the favourites in a Tote Scoop6 race is vulnerable, it is always worth taking them on with another horse, as when popular horses are beaten, it ultimately means a larger dividend to any winners.
Selecting unnamed favourites
You can choose to have the favourite of any of the six Tote Scoop6 races running for you, if you’d rather side with the market.
Select this option when making your selections and whichever horse goes off the SP favourite will be running for you. Should there be joint favourites at the time of the off, you will be represented by the horse with the lowest racecard number.
Non-runners in Tote Scoop6 bets
If any of the horses in your Tote Scoop6 bet are subsequently non-runners, your stake will automatically be moved onto the unnamed favourite of the race at the off.
What is the Scoop6 Place Pool?
Even if you aren't successful in finding all six winners, but your selections all fill the frame you could still walk away with a cash prize.
A Scoop6 Place Pool is built up using a proportion of the total pool, as more people submit their entries. Like the win pool, it is then divided between all players who include a placed horse in their selections.
What is the Scoop6 Bonus Pool?
Anyone who is lucky enough win the Tote Scoop6, is given the opportunity to add even more to their prize.
A bonus pool is created for any Tote Scoop6 winners to follow up the next week and is won by finding the winner in a specified race. Only Tote Scoop6 winners from the week before are eligible play for the bonus fund.
