Jackpot, Placepot, Trio and Dual Forecast bets are already available in shops with the Tote link, but from tomorrow, Quadpot, win, each-way and, most significantly, place-only betting will be available.
Mark Openshaw, of Tote Direct, said: "As a punter, I would see this as a tremendous advantage. With the win and place betting shows on screen punters will be able to compare Tote prices and SPs.
"There are around 2,200 betting shops with a Tote Direct link - made up of 800 Coral shops, 200 Tote ones and over 1,000 independent bookmakers.
"This will give an extra nudge to the others. If the other firms joined in, the jackpot would regularly build up and we could have the thinking- man's alternative to the National Lottery."Reuse content
