PARI-MUTUEL BETTING

Pari-mutuel is a form of betting whereby all bets of the same type go into a pool. The winning dividend for a pari-mutuel bet is determined by the total pool size divided by the number of winning bets. The operator will withdraw taxes and a margin from the total pool size before dividing the pool amongst winning bets.

Pari-mutuel betting is also referred to as tote betting or the tote (totalisator) where punters can view the current dividends at any point in time on screen.
