Tote Pick 6 - Betting on Horses with Tote Ireland


Betting on horses with the Tote Pick 6 involves picking the winners of six consecutive races, which are always races 1 to 6. The Pick 6 must be placed before the "off" of race 1. This challenging bet will reap significant rewards.


Calculating the cost of your Pick 6 bet is straightforward. Multiply the number of horses you pick in each race by one another. This will give you the number of units you have. Then multiply this figure by your selected stake. For example:

Race 1
Race 2
Race 3
Race 4
Race 5
Race 6
No of horses in
each race:

2x1x2x1x3x2 =

For €1 stake the total bet cost is €24 or for 50c stake the cost is €12.

The minimum stake on a single line Pick 6 (i.e. a Pick 6 where you have only selected one runner per race) is €1.
The minimum stake for Permutation Pick 6 bets (i.e. a Pick 6 where you have selected various amount of runners) is €0.50, rising thereafter in multiples of €0.50. The maximum unit stake is €25. Pick 6 dividends are declared to a €1 stake.

Pick 6 Rules:

In the instance where there is no winner of the Tote Pick 6, the total pool is rolled over to the next applicable race meeting.

The Super Pick 6 takes place on Sundays only.  If the Super Pick  is not won then it is rolled over to the following Sunday's Super Pick 6.  Any rollover from the Pick 6 on a Saturday will be included in the Super Pick 6 the following day.

Non-Runners and withdrawn horses are transferred to the SP Favourite or in the case of joint favourites the runner with the lowest race card number.

Please note that in instances where all legs of a Pick 6 bet are not run (due to cancellation) and the pool(s) are guaranteed for a specific amount and the guarantee is not reached the pool and winning dividends will be calculated on the actual amount on the day (including any rollover to the pool if it is applicable).
