Placing A Bet on The National

If you're having an each-way bet look for a bookmakers who's paying out on additional finishing positions

Normally In a handicap race of 16 runners or more, bookmakers will payout each-way bets on the first 4 finishers. However for the Grand National many will be paying out on additional places. The best of these is BetVictor who are paying out on the first 6 places, others will be paying out on the first 5. see our list on the righthand column of the page. It therefore makes sense to place your each-way bets with BetVictor (unless one of the other bookmakers is offering much better odds on the horse you want to back). Lets face it, you'd be pretty gutted if your horse finishes either 5th or 6th and your bookmaker only pays out the first 4.

Take advantage of a free bet

The majority of bookmakers withdraw their Free Bet offers for the day of the Grand National, but there are a few that still offer themt. Again BetVictor comes up trumps here, bet £10 with them and they'll give you £30 in Sports Bonus funds, plus they'll give you another £30 in Bonus funds, you can bet in their Casino.

See our Bookmaker Free Bet Offers page for other free bet offers.

Get the best odds on your bets

When placing your bet on the Grand National, make sure the bookmaker you choose offers Best Odds Guaranteed. Take the price on offer and if the SP is greater they'll pay you out at the bigger price. Note that BOG prices will only count for bets placed on the day of the National.
