Chester Bet | Chester Racecourse

Chester Bet

In 2012 following the sale of the Tote to Betfred by the Government we launched Chester Bet and Bangor Bet to become the first racecourse to look after its own on course betting operation. The introduction of the new division within the Company has allowed huge investment back into the racecourse to improve the facilities for racegoers.

At Chester we offer an alternative to pool based dividends based around Starting Price. A deduction of 10% is applied to SP’s and we call it Racecourse Price. This return can be higher or lower than Tote dividends. In a similar way to high street betting shops and the Tote we offer a variety of bets. Win, Each-Way, Place, Forecast and Tricast. We have also, for 2020, reintroduced some popular Tote bets. Placepot, Quadpot, Jackpot, Scoop 6 and Swinger to give our customers greater choice.

At Bangor we now offer a full Tote concession with all the favourite multi-leg pools as well as Win and Place.

As an alternative to betting with the racecourse on a raceday customers are able to choose from a large number of independent bookmakers in all enclosures. These bookmakers will give you the price displayed on their boards when the bet is struck giving you the chance to compare odds on offer.

Whether it is Chester Bet, Tote or an independent on-course bookmaker, we are all regulated by the Gambling Commission and all firms want responsible and safe gambling.
