Free Bet from Totesport

Tote used to be just horse racing but they have loads of other markets now. They have as many moneyback specials as Paddy's and that's saying something. Website seems fast even on busy sporting days. Only negative is the lack of payment options.
Totesport have always been a reliable bookie to bet with, they offer decent odds and a decent range of betting opportunities. They aren't the best out there but I always end up having a few bets a month with them so worth having an account.
The website overall could be better and don't have the biggest selection of markets out there, the in play betting is very poor and is to be avoided at all costs especially if you like anything other than football, however the Bet £5 and get a £10 free bet for new customers is superb and the free bet was credited straight away. My account was also suspended after 3 days after opening my account, however a quick phone call to customer services and it was dealt with very quickly, customer service was superb.
By no means am I a big gambler, but I found myself limited to very small stakes within a couple of weeks of opening an account, despite actually being in the red to them! I also received an email informing me that I would no longer be able to take up their promotional offers and bonuses! They want your money - just not on the sportsbook. I still receive offers of bingo and games bonuses. Poor "bookie".
The website is clumsy, hard to use and fraught with technical glitches. I have tried more times than I can remember to place in-play bets only to receive some incomprehensible error message. And the in-play market regularly vanishes while 'we update our markets'. The odds and free offers Totesport offer simply don't make it worth the hassle.
unimpressive as although the site is easier to use these days, it isn't as useful as others and their range of bets is far from comprehensive - odds aren't usually attractive and thus rarely use them any more (and UK only it appears as I've now found it being abroad)
