Tote withdrawal methods, & “How-to guide”

Tote Withdrawal methods

The Tote has been around since Sir Winston Churchill founded it in 1928. The Tote has been at the heart of British racing for over 90 years. The Tote is proud of its pool betting, like a sweep stake, where everyone’s bets are collected together in one big pool and then shared out. This means the Tote always welcomes winning customers. They launched in 2020 with a new website and have a very efficient deposit and withdrawal system but it is limited to UK debit cards only at the moment.

Tote Withdrawal Methods – Debit Card

Tote does not accept a huge range of deposit methods, just Visa and Mastercard debit cards, which are also the only withdrawal methods available. This is not necessarily a problem as debit cards are something everyone has from their bank as standard and provide a convenient and safe way to transfer money. Getting money into and out of Tote is always free of charge providing you have wagered the funds at least 1x. They have incredible flexibility allowing deposits and withdrawals as little as £1, maximum withdrawal amounts are £9000 per transaction but you can make multiple transactions a day. The processing time is advertised as taking several days but in reality this is dependent on your bank, and they say they will transfer money to you within 24 hours and it will be sent to your account as soon as your bank clears it. You can deposit up to £750 before you have to send in any official documents confirming your identity or source of funds. 

(As a last resort it may be possible to bank transfer funds if you are having fundamental problems withdrawing to your card. Contact the customer support to arrange this) 

Note: Credit cards are NOT accepted.

How Long Does A Tote Withdrawal Take?

A withdrawal from Tote will take a different amount of time for different people and on different days because the length of time is dependant on a number of different factors and is not a constant. Factors which will have an effect are if it is your first withdrawal, if you have previously sent in ID documents, and what day or time of day the request is made. As a rule it is prudent to expect the withdrawal time to be 3-5 working days after you request it, but in all probability it will be sooner than this.
