Grand National Free Bets & Offers
The Aintree Grand National is the most popular horse race in the world, certainly the biggest single horse racing event on the jumps racing calendar.
Millions of people get involved in an annual Grand National betting frenzy all hoping to find the winner of this historic contest.
Grand National Free Bets
The Grand National is now watched by up to 600 million people in over 140 countries.
In the UK alone, over £150 million in betting turnover makes it the biggest betting event of the horse racing year on the first Saturday each April.
Smart punters can claim any number of Grand National free bets and more recently ‘Enhanced Odds’ offers in the week leading up to Aintree Grand National Saturday.
However, it is worth noting that some bookmakers do take their Grand National free bet offers offline for the actual day of the big race so you should remember to register with them as soon as you can. Remember, the early bird gets the worm!
So, from the 6th through to the 8th April 2017, the Aintree Festival will take over and many online bookmakers will soon be offering enhanced Grand National odds on the big name horses along with some great free bet sign-up offers. And as a new customer you are in a great position to cash in.
For example, bet365’s £200 Deposit Bonus is a hugely popular offer and backed up by their superb ITV Racing free bet bonus – basically, if you back a 4/1+ winner on any live ITV / ITV4 race they will give you a free bet to the same value to use on the next live race. The Stoke-based firm are always one the busiest places to bet on Grand National Day.
Another popular offer is over at 888Sport where you new customers can get treble the odds on any horse at the Aintree Festival or in the 2017 Grand National itself. All you need to do is register and place your first bet on any sport – if it wins you will be paid out at x3 odds with the enhanced price winnings returned in the form of free bet tokens.
There’s also the simple but excellent £10 free bet offer from Sun Bets which is sure to be really popular with the tabloid newspaper’s readers.
Free bets for Grand National are plentiful and easy to claim. See below for more details on how to access the best offers, but bear in mind to grab yours early in the week if possible to ensure you don’t miss out.
Grand National Bets
Finding the winner of the Grand National is arguably the biggest ‘kudos’ achievement in horse racing anywhere in the world, as 40 horses charge around the famous Aintree racecourse for 10 minutes over four miles, three furlongs and 30 tough fences.
As you’d expected, bookmakers have a wide variety of Grand National bet types and a range of different betting markets available, online and in the high street betting shops around the country.
In view of a huge increase in one-day punters, bookmakers make it really easy to bet on your Grand National tips in the main betting market, but look out for other markets to make it more fun.
In such a competitive handicap race the ‘Each-Way’ market is a big one and basically consists of 2 bets – one to win and one for your horse to place in the first four. So for a £5 each way bet your total stake will be £10. Some bookmakers will offer enhanced place terms paying out on five or sometimes even the first six horses home.
The majority of respectable companies like Paddy Power, Ladbrokes, Coral and William Hill are sure to offer additional markets such as ‘Total Finishers’ and the usual ‘Irish or UK trained winner?’ and ‘Winning Jockey’ markets.
Another good one to watch out for is ‘First Fence Fallers’ markets, where you predict how many horses will not get past the first fence.
But for your win and each-way bets, it can pay to have more than one horse on your side and the fact that there are so many big juicy prices available, it is a fun activity to reduce the field and come up with a shortlist of potential winners!
Grand National Betting Offers
As mentioned above, many online bookmakers will either change or remove their main Grand National free bet offer 24 hours (or as specified) before the race itself, but all of the best and popular bookmakers will have their usual free bet offers in the days leading up to Saturday of the Aintree Festival.
Make sure to look out for the SkyBet’s ‘Bet £5 Get £20’ welcome offer which gives you an extra £20 to play with for just a £5 stake which is amazing value in time for the Grand National betting bonanza.
BetVictor always have great ‘Specials’ markets, Grand National free bets and enhancements too, especially their generous £60 BetVictor sign-up bonus offer.
Last but not least from the countless offers to choose from is Betway’s £50 Bonus when you register in time for the Grand National meeting!
