With a 12-month calendar chock full of fantastic meets and events, the racing at Newbury of course offers both casual and seasoned racegoers alike plenty of opportunities to have a flutter.
Across all areas of the course, including the Grandstand, other stands and enclosures, you can find a variety of Totepool counters. For the uninitiated, the Tote doesn’t involve you betting against a bookmaker, instead your stake enters a pool and how much you end up winning depends on how many other winning tickets have been entered for that particular race. Equally, there are plenty of bookmakers to be found in the betting ring that’s located in front of the Grandstand.
It’s important to note that Newbury Racecourse is now cashless, apart from at the Tote stands and the trackside bookmakers - although some will accept debit cards. There are now also no cash machines available at the course, so you will need to bring cash with you if you want to use it.
For those of you who wish to bet via your own devices and apps, free Wi-Fi is available for all racegoers. On top of this, if you want some additional tips or a memento from your time at the track, Newbury racecards can be purchased before or at your chosen event for £4.
