The connections between The Tote (the hotel) and The Tote (the betting shop) are at best murky and at worst down right fraudulent. There are persistent rumors of tunnels running from the cellar of the current Tote under Johnston and Wellington Streets to shops opposite. These are supposed to have facilitated get-always for the bookies who used to operate from the pub. If you've ever been in the old cellar of the Tote (whose entrance is guarded by their world famous Jukebox) then you'd know why they haven't been too enthusiastic about investigating the truth of these rumors.

Spend much time at the Tote and you'll eventually encounter the ghost of the Tote. Not a scary ghost, nor a particularly friendly ghost, this fleeting apparition seems to inhabit the landing of the stairs (beneath their large 'Cobra Woman' banner) and always seems to be making their way upstairs. Perhaps it's a lost punter looking for the toilets, or a faded rock god who's demise no-one noticed, but they prefer the story that involves Squizzy Tailor, a rowdy new year's eve and an uncooperative publican.
