Goals and Goals”The Original BTTS Market

One aspect that Betfred do very well is innovate. And as we mentioned earlier, they’re always coming out with new offers – often coming up with new ideas or using a different approach to old ideas. To put it another way, they’re not scared to explore new ideas.

It’s not only offers they test, Betfred are famous for their inventing of completely new markets and their Goals Galore coupon was the ancestor of the current wildly well-liked both teams that score in the market (BTTS for short). Although BTTS is now available by virtually every bookmaker in the UK (including Betfred), Betfred provide their Original Goals Galore Coupon which is basically an fixed-odds BTTS acca.

The way it works is Here’s how it works: the Goals Galore coupon is made consisting of several forthcoming matches. It is your job to pick the ones in which you believe both teams will have at most one goal. The amount of money you can earn is based on the number of options you have made.

3 correct 3 correct
4 correct 11/2
5 correct – 10/1
6 correct 6 correct
7 correct 7 correct
8 correct – 45/1
9 correct 9 correct
10 correct – 120/1
1 correct, 200/1
12-correct – 300/1
13 correct – 500/1
14 correct 800/1
15 correct 15 correct

Additionally, there is a coupon, ‘Goals Galore Bonus’ which offers better odds for a lesser amount of games. It pays out in the following manner:

3 correct – 9/2
4 correct – 9/1
5 correct 5 correct

Of course, you could make the same bet using the traditional BTTS markets. You can even include ‘both teams to not score’ bets which isn’t allowed by the Goals Galore coupon doesn’t currently allow. However, you can sometimes have better odds with the coupon versus a straight accumulator, depending on the games.

Totepool Betting

Betfred bought The Tote in 2011, and have been hard at work to bring back the brand. Like you’d expect, Tote products are readily accessible and beautifully presented on this site.

If you’re not sure the workings of this If you’re not sure how it all works, the Tote is basically a pool bet on horse racing. You are paid out a share of the prize pool if you win. The amount you are paid is dependent on how much you bet into the pool and how many winners there were for the specific outcome.

All of the old favorites are available including Placepots, Jackpots, Scoop 6, Quadpots, Swingers and Trifectas. You can also bet with The Tote on horses to be placed and win as well as the Exacta, which can be described as The Tote version of forecasts.

While these bets have been popular for a long time, they are presented here in a bright modern and bold way via the Totepool Live Info page. This gives you up-to-date details on the size of pools as well as dividends, and the amount of money that is on each selection.

You can place bets on the Tote at a variety of locations however, it’s quite well-done here. There are arguments for as well as against Tote betting but it’s a different way to do this and it’s definitely worth looking into. Bets such as Scoop 6 and the Jackpot Jackpot or Scoop 6 still give you the chance to win huge wins from placing tiny bets.

However, now the application is sleek smooth, glossy, and well-functioned betting app that has every amenity on there that could be found on the site itself. It’s evident that they’ve put a lot and effort into developing the next generation betting platform and that’s mobile betting.
