Tote partners with ATG to offer new bets and live streaming on Swedish Racing
The Tote is delighted to be partnering with the Swedish Horse Racing Totalisator Board (ATG) to offer customers new betting opportunities on Swedish racing.
The Tote commenced offering bets on all Swedish racing meetings on Friday 27th March. This currently includes two or three trotting meetings per day with thoroughbred racing recommencing at Bro Park on Sunday 5th April after its annual March break.
Available bets for all Tote customers on Swedish thoroughbred and trotting racing include Win, Place and Trifecta, as well as Exacta on thoroughbred racing only, with work underway to integrate the Tote with the popular Swedish multi-leg V-bets.
In addition, all the racing is being streamed live on a watch and bet basis on tote.co.uk. This is available to all Tote customers who do not need to place a bet to be able to enjoy the sporting action. All new customers signing up to tote.co.uk will receive a £10 risk free first bet on Swedish racing.
In total Swedish trotting and thoroughbred associations host nearly a thousand meetings every year at 37 different venues with thoroughbred race meetings usually taking place at Bro Park, Jagersro, and Gothenburg Galopp racecourses. A guide to Swedish racing can be found on the Tote Blog at https://tote.co.uk/racing/guides/a-guide-to-racing-in-sweden.
Alex Frost, Chief Executive of the UK Tote Group, said: “In these unprecedented times we are all working together across horseracing to do what we can to support the sport and its participants. Horseracing is truly global and at the UK Tote we want to play our part in showcasing the sport to as broad an audience as possible. We want to help increase interest in racing and via innovation and collaboration ensure pool betting can help drive revenue back to the sport.
“Our new partnership with ATG is a valuable example of this with racing fans now able to enjoy watching and betting on Swedish racing for the first time with the Tote. I would like to thank Hasse and his team at ATG for their innovative approach to our discussions which has enabled this agreement to be formalised very rapidly. We look forward to continuing to work together as we integrate the Tote with the popular Swedish multi-leg V-bets.
“In addition to our work with ATG, we are in discussions with a number of another international partners which we look forward to providing an update on in the coming weeks.”
Hasse Lord Skarplӧth, Chief Executive of ATG, said “We are all affected by the situation the world is in right now, both in our private and professional lives. Under these circumstances it is good that in the short term we have been able to work with the UK Tote to offer betting on Swedish racing for their customers for the first time, thereby generating revenue to the sport. We intend to continue to exchange ideas and develop the partnership between the UK Tote and ATG to help benefit racing in both our countries.”
