In 2012 following the sale of the Tote to Betfred ChesterBet and BangorBet were launched and became the first courses to look after their own on-course betting operation.

At the end of 2019 in was announced, as part of a sponsorship deal, that the UK Tote Group would return to Chester and Bangor-on Dee Racecourses in 2020 to supplement existing products. Chester would continue to offer Win, Place, Forecast and Tricast via ChesterBet and offer limited Tote mulit-leg pools. Bangor however would see a wholesale replacement to offer a full Tote service in conjunction with a racecourse run betting shop, BangorSport.

This means at Bangor customers can place Tote Win, Place, Each-Way, Exacta, Trifecta, Placepot, Quadpot, Jackpot and Scoop 6 wagers.
