Grand National Each Way Bet Calculator

One of the most used Grand National calculator services with online bookmakers is the Grand National each way bet calculator. The Grand National is a handicap with a maximum field of 40 runners.

The each-way bet Grand National calculator returns £270 for a profit of £250 under this example.

Grand National Accumulator Calculator

The Grand National Accumulator is used to work out the returns from multiple bets. An accumulator combines four selections or more in one single line bet. An accumulator can be a win or each way. The calculation can be complex so a Grand National accumulator calculator is a useful tool.

Advanced Bet Calculator Functions

The Grand National calculator and any other bet calculator tool has more advanced functions which are described below:

Free Bet Calculator

Bookmakers offer free bets as part of the welcome bonus. Some of the free bets can be used on the Grand National so the calculator is a useful tool. The calculator works out the bets that must be placed to maximise the free bets. The Grand National calculator shows the qualifying and free bets that must be placed during the process of matched betting. The bet calculator gives accurate guidelines for the use of free bets.

Accumulator Calculator And System Bet Calculator

The calculation of the returns from singles is simple. However, the Grand National calculator comes into its own for working out the returns from accumulator and system bets. Both types of bets combine a number of combinations and the odds are multiplied.

An acca has only one line while system bets have permutations of singles, doubles, trebles and accumulators.  Both types of bet can be win or each-way. The Grand National odds calculator works out the return based on the stake, win odds and place terms. The bet calculator saves time and is accurate.

Betting Odds Calculator

Betting odds are calculated in several formats and the bet calculator can be used to convert the odds. The three most common odds formats are decimal, fractional and American. There is no single calculation to convert the odds but the calculator has a database of odds in each format. Here is how Evens is represented in each format:

Fractional: 1/1

Decimal: 2.00

American: 100

The implied probability is 50% which is used to work out the bets in each of the three odds formats.

Rule 4 Calculator

The advanced features of the calculator can deal with non-runners and Rule 4 Deductions. When a horse is withdrawn near the start of the race and bookmakers do not have time to create a new market, odds are adjusted to take into account the absent horse.

There is a sliding scale of % R4 Deductions based on the odds of the horse when it is withdrawn. The calculator works out returns based on the odds and stake and any Rule 4 Deductions.

Why Use The Bet Calculator

The calculator and any other type of bet calculator are useful tools for working out the returns from winning bets. As long as the correct odds, stake and place terms are entered the tool will calculate the profit from a bet quickly and accurately.

The toll comes into its own for complex system bets when there could be non-runners and Rule 4 Deductions. Each way bets are handled as long as the place terms are entered into the tool correctly.
