Scoop Six Betting Explained
The Tote Scoop 6 is a once a week horse racing betting pool that runs every Saturday, and occasionally on Friday evenings.
It is a form of Tote betting which involves picking a horse in each of the six specific UK horse races that are typically available on ITV Racing every Saturday. Scoop six has been running since July 1999 and has become one of the UK’s most famous horse racing bets.
The Scoop 6 pool is split into three separate funds, the win fund, and the place fund, and the bonus fund.
If you correctly pick the winners of all six races, you can land the win fund, but you also have the consolation of the place fund if your six horses manage to place.
All win fund winners can play for the bonus fund the following week. To win a share of the bonus fund, you will need to pick the winner of a selected bonus race.
The minimum stake is £2 on betting sites that offer Scoop 6, and the amount you win is dependant on the size of the pool divided by the amount of winning tickets (minus deductions).
The pool size rolls over to the next week if there are no winning tickets, and the prize pool can reach mouth-watering figures.
How to Place a Scoop 6 Bet
In Scoop 6, you can choose more than one horse from each of the six races, but, you will have to pay for each line within the bet.
The overall cost of the bet is easy to work out, by simply multiplying the number of selections in each race.
For example, selecting 1 horse in the first 4 races, but 2 in the last two races would cost you £8 overall.
1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 2 x 2 = 4 x £2 (minimum stake) = £8
But, the cost can easily add up if you were to add 2 horses in each of the six races.
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 64 x £2 = £128!
You can find the Scoop 6 races around midday on the Friday before the races on the Scoop 6 website.
