Which countries are legal at Totesport?

All major online bookmakers accept customers and bets from a wide range of nations around the world. They do not, however, cater for all countries and generally make a point of informing potential customers that it is their responsibility to ensure that it is legal to bet online within their home territory.

Totesport do exactly this by way of a clause within their terms and conditions, which identifies those countries from which it is illegal to use their site and then states that;

…for all other jurisdictions, it is the individual’s responsibility to ensure that any activity with us does not breach the laws relating to betting of the country or state where the individual is based.

To make life a little easier, however, what follows is a list of nations from which it is legal to sign up to and use the Totesport site:

  • Andorra
  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Cyprus
  • Egypt
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • Gibraltar
  • Hong Kong
  • Iceland
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Ireland
  • Liechtenstein
  • Lithuania
  • Luxembourg
  • Macedonia
  • Malaysia
  • Malta
  • Moldova
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Slovenia
  • South Korea
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom

None of the above nations appear on Totesport’s list of ineligible countries but due to the ever evolving nature of gambling legislation, it is still worth checking into the legal situation in your own nation for yourself.

What countries are legal at Totesport?

Helpfully, and unlike a number of other major bookmakers, Totesport readily provide a list of nations from which it is illegal to use their betting services. That list follows in its entirety:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • China
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Latvia
  • Montenegro
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Serbia
  • Singapore
  • Slovakia
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Thailand
  • Turkey
  • Ukraine
  • United Arab Emirates
  • USA

This list is correct at time of writing, but once again due to the fluid nature of gambling legislation it can be subject to changes and variations. As things stand, however, if your nation appears above then you are not eligible to become a Totesport customer.

Currencies Accepted

Whilst UK based, therefore, Totesport offer a service that is clearly available to customers in a range of different countries and territories. You wouldn’t necessarily know it, however, from the selection of currencies which their site caters for. That selection, after all, is simply as follows:

  • Euros (EUR)
  • United Kingdom Pounds (GBP)

Punters from all over the world, as a result, are asked to use either Euros or Pound Sterling if they are going to bet with Totesport. To see all deposit options available read our Totesport review.

Bonus Restrictions – Who Can Get a Free Bet or Bonus?

Bonus RestrictionsAlongside stipulating that residents of some nations are simply not allowed to utilise their sites, bookmakers also routinely prevent customers from some countries from accessing bonuses.

In the case of Totesport, their restrictions are fairly harsh and state that only punters from the UK (and Northern Ireland) can claim their opening bonus (the Totesport free bet).

If you live in any of their other accepted nations you WILL be able to take advantage of any promotions on offer but you WON’T be able to claim the opening bonus so no point in looking for a Totesport promo code, it won’t work.

Totesport as an entity can trace its origins back to the establishment of the Horserace Totalisator Board as long ago as 1928.
