UK Punters To Bet Into South African Pools
Meanwhile the UK Tote "has secured a deal allowing British punters to bet into South African pools for the 1st time under an agreement with racecourse & betting operator Phumelela," reported racingpost.com. It follows a similar arrangement which since July "has seen Tote clients enjoy increased pool sizes for the Trifecta & Swinger as result of stakes from South Africa co-mingling with those in the UK"; previously, South African punters only bet into UK win & place pools. Phumelela's chief executive Rian du Plessis commented: "This is a very exciting deal for us, as we have to get totes around the world betting into each other's pools."
