The tote is a “pool betting” system. All money placed on a race is put into a pool, the tote retains a percentage of this pool with the rest shared between the winning ticket owners. Tote screens are a guide to the price at the moment you place your bet but the actual price isn’t known until the betting closes at the sound of the bell – the indicator for the start of the race.
