Sign Up to ToteSports

If you haven’t already, sign up to Smarkets first using our button below.

Next, follow the link below to get the correct offer from ToteSport

You will need to deposit £35 into Totesport when registering. This is to cover the £25 qualifying bet to unlock the free bet, and the risk free £10 Tote bet (and to look like a good customer).

STEP 1: Finding your Qualifying Bet

i) Use the Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher to find a bet easily (minimum odds of 2.0)

To change the odds on ToteSport to decimal format, in the ‘Useful Links’ menu go to ‘Settings’, then ‘Odds Type’. 

To help you find the best Qualifying Bet, and to find it quickly, we recommend to use your Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher tool. Remember to set the filter to select bets between the odds of 2.0 and 2.80. 

If you haven’t tried the Oddsmatcher yet you can try it here for just £1.

ii) Select a Qualifying Bet and check the odds at ToteSport and Smarkets

Remember on Smarkets: #BLUE BOXES.

Choose a bet from the Oddsmatcher then check the odds are as expected at ToteSport and Smarkets. (If not hit ‘Refresh’ on the Oddsmatcher to update the list of available bets). 

STEP 2: Calculate the Lay Bet Amount

Using the Qualifying Bet Calculator

You will now need to enter:

  1. Your stake amount at the bookmaker (this will be £25)
  2. Your back odds at the bookmaker (must be minimum of 2.00)
  3. The blue box lay odds from Smarkets

The calculator then works out your lay stake amount, which you will use for your against bet at Smarkets.

(As this is a £25 bet here we would accept a Qualifying Loss of up to a maximum £1.50)


> Check your Smarkets balance is greater than your calculator liability.

> Reduce the chance of partially-matched bets or un-matched bets by making sure the liquidity (amount under blue lay box) is larger than your lay stake amount.

STEP 3: Placing your bets

Your £25 free bet (which is valid for 7 days) will be credited within 24 hours of your qualifying bet settling. You may also be asked for SMS validation before placing your free bet.

i) Choose a bet to do with higher odds to make a larger profit

We need to use our Oddsmonkey Oddsmatcher now to find bets with higher odds (ideally 4.0 or more) so that we can extract a good profit.

We have created a table for you below to see what amount of liability you will need in Smarkets to obtain certain profits from the £25 free bet.


If you’ve decided not to try Oddsmonkey for  £1 now then you can manually search for bets to do or check our Matched Betting Blog for potential bets to do.

ii) Open the Profit Bet Calculator

Once you’ve found a bet to do enter your £25 free bet stake, with your back odds from ToteSport and lay odds from Smarkets


Remember to do your important checks (Smarkets balance > liability; Smarkets liquidity > lay stake) before placing your free bet. 

iii) Select to use your free bets in the bet slip

Remember to:

> select your free bet in your betslip at ToteSport

> place the free bet at ToteSport first, check it’s gone through and then do your lay bet at Smarkets

Once the free bet settles…

A big well done, that will be another £18 in risk free profit!

How to use the £10 risk-free Totepool Bet?

You still have a risk free £10 bet to use in the Totepool section of the Totesport website.

This £10 gets refunded whether the horse you choose wins or loses. (i.e. you will either make a profit or lose nothing).

This Totepool bet can NOT be layed off at an exchange, so we recommend just selecting a horse you like the sound of and hope for a nice win.

If the horse loses, your £10 cashback will be returned the next day, regardless of the outcome.


You are doing really well! We’ve got loads more profits still to make as well :)

Let’s keep going!

(Not forgetting to track your profits in your spreadsheet or Oddsmonkey Profit Tracker).
