Bet With Ascot

Bet With Ascot is the racecourse’s new pool betting operation, being run in partnership with the Tote. It is the easiest way to add a little extra excitement to every race – even if your horse doesn’t win, choose from a range of simple, fun bets – and you’ll have a reason to cheer whatever happens.

There are a number of Bet With Ascot outlets spread around the course and racegoers can place a bet and pick up their winnings at any serving counter. The friendly Bet With Ascot staff are always happy to help if you have any questions or are unsure about what bet to place.

As part of our wider CSR programme, racegoers are invited to drop any losing Bet With Ascot slips into our charity bins across the site to be in with a chance to win betting vouchers and hospitality at the end of the Jump season.
