Tips For Tote Placepot and Quadpot Punters - Advice and Strategy for the Tote Placepot.
Sorry to disappoint Placepot fans who are looking for tips to win todays placepot.
But,this is the best tip you will ever get when playing the Placepot - never use selections from other sources like blogs,racing papers or racing tv tipsters.
If you think about it is a completely self defeating objective!.
The Placepot is a pool bet - that means all the money is pooled - the Tote take their cut - and then the cash is shared out between the winners.
The same applies to all Tote bets like the Tote Jackpot,Scoop 6,Exactas,Singles - every Tote bet !.
It amazes me that racing pages,racing tipsters and even television presenters give their viewers or readers selections to include in their Placepots and other Tote bets - they must know the idiocy of offering those selections,but they still do it.
If you do win,alongside everybody else who followed those selections - you will win far less that you were hoping to win,due the fact that the dividend is shared out amongst winners,and the more winners the less you get paid.
You can adopt tactics and strategies to win Placepot,and another article of mine How to Win Tote Placepot may be of interest.Another article,Tote Placepot Explained will explain fully the rules and permutations you can make when betting on the Placepot.
I love the Placepot,and think it is perhaps the best Tote bet of all.
I can remember when the Placepot started,way back in the early 1980's.Only a few hundred pounds was paid into the pot each meeting as nobody really knew about it.
However the attraction was that very often it was not won (that never happens now due to the huge number of perms punters bet every day at every meeting)and rollovers over several days were often up for grabs.Then shrewd punters (like me !) moved in with large perms to scoop the previous losses made by investors - very profitable betting tactics for a couple of years - but those days are long gone !.
However,the Tote Placepot is still a great bet,but you really need to avoid the selections that every body else is using - pick your own,yes,include fancied horses,but also make sure you pick some outsiders as well - it is the big dividends,that few other punters have won,which makes for big payouts,and that is what you are looking for to make your betting profitable.
So steer clear of those Placepot tips - every other winner reduces your dividend - the fewer winners the better.
