Sports Betting

The UK Tote Group and Singapore Pools have signed a new agreement to commingle pools.

The agreement sees both organisations combine liquidity with customers of Singapore Pools betting into the UK Tote’s pools on British racing meetings. This creates bigger UK pools, ensuring a better customer experience for racing fans in the UK and in Singapore and an improved financial return to the sport.

The agreement was made in partnership with Arena Racing Company and Racecourse Media Group as the media rights holders for British racing’s 59 racecourses. Singapore Pools have been long-standing partners of British racing, hosting local pools on the sport. This collaboration between these stakeholders further deepens the relationship, benefiting racing fans and the sport.

Simon Leong, Chief Product Officer of Singapore Pools, expressed his enthusiasm for the new commingling arrangement with the UK Tote.  He said, “We are delighted to collaborate with the UK Tote on this new front, which not only provides our customers access to larger pools but also contributes to British horseracing which have been telecasted in Singapore since 2010.  We deeply appreciate our longstanding partnership with British racing and look forward to further strengthening the communal horseracing ties shared between us.  Singapore Pools will continue to bring quality products from around the world to Singapore and elevate the racing experience for all.”

Jon Knapman, International Chief Commercial Officer of the UK Tote Group, said: “This is a really positive development and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues at Singapore Pools to ensure bigger pools for all our customers. We will continue to cooperate and commingle with our international pool betting partners to ensure bigger, more unified pools on our racing. We’d like to thank all involved who contributed to this new agreement.”

Nick Mills, Chief Commercial Officer of RMG, said: “Singapore Pools have been a long-standing partner of British and Irish racing, having hosted local pools for over 15 years. This is a great example of British racing working together and we are delighted to work with all parties to facilitate commingling into the UKTG and therefore provide greater liquidity, which will see benefits to all.”
