With the Grand National having by far the biggest betting turnover of any horse race in the world, it’s no surprise there are always Grand National Betting Offers to help customers along the way.

It’s no different than if you were shopping in the high street sales and looking for the best bargains. The bookmakers want to attract you to place a bet with them. Plus, with competition the strongest it’s ever been then that’s great news for punters.

However, there is a slight note of caution attached to the Grand National and actual ‘SIGN-UP’ offers.

Through the year most bookmakers will offer NEW customers a carrot to join them. Most of the time this is done with an initial ‘FREE BET’ on sign-up. This will naturally appeal to new players with that particular bookmaker and also give customers a bit of free cash to see them on their way. Of course, with so many bookmakers out there then always be sure to check the terms and conditions on how you would qualify for each bookmaker’s initial sign-up offer.

Many ‘New Customer’ Sign-Up Offers Disappear In The Build-up To The Grand National – Yes, that’s right. With the bulk of punters for the Grand National being ‘once-a-year’ customers then a lot of bookmakers have latched onto this. Therefore, offering attractive sign-up offers to these customers that will just use them and then never have another bet through the year would be a loss-making exercise for the bookmakers.

Top Tip: If you are planning on just having a flutter on the Grand National and then not really bet again through the year – then be sure to open up your new betting accounts weeks before the race (this year on Sat 14th April 2018).

This way the bookmakers will still have their normal (all-year-round) sign-up offers in place for you to take full advantage of. Either place your Grand National bets in advance, or if the terms allow save up your free bets until nearer the race time (but always check the Ts&C’s).

A typical sign-up offer for a new customer might be – deposit £25 and get a FREE £10 bet.

Or some might require you to place a bet of £25 and they will match it with a FREE £25 bet – again they are all slightly different so be sure to shop around and check out the terms of each one.

Best Grand National Betting Offers

There is still good news on the Grand National BONUS offers front!

Ok, as mentioned, some bookmakers might remove their initial sign-up offers in the days leading up to the Grand National but there are still plenty of Grand National Betting offers to be had on the actual race.

Existing Customers can take full advantage here too. Yes, even if you are already a customer with a leading bookmaker then always look around for their Grand National betting offers.

To attract you to place bets a bookmaker might offer refunds on any fallers, unseated jockeys or horses brought down. While others might enhance the standard top four place payout to top 5, 6 or even 7 places!

Grand National Faller, Unseat Or Brought Down Offers

With the Grand National having 30 tricky fences and a busy field of 40 runners then it’s very unlikely we’ll not see a faller in the race. A faller can mean that a horse actually falls, the jockey unseats (horse stays on its feet), or the horse is brought down by another in the race.

In cases like this then a lot of bookmakers will refund your stakes (up to a certain amount) as a free bet of cash. Again, be sure to check the terms of each bookmaker’s faller offer – but, in short, if your horse falls, is brought down or the jockey unseats then you’ll get you money back.

It goes without saying this is a great insurance bet and with around 10-15 of the 40 runners expected to end their race this way then the disappointment of backing a horse that falls can suddenly be erased.

Grand National Extra Place Special Offers

With the Grand National being a handicap that will have 16 or more runners then the standard industry each-way terms for the race is 1-2-3-4 places. This means if you back a horse each-way, or for a place, then it has to finish in the TOP 4 in order for you to get a return.

However, there can be good news on this front. With the Grand National having 40 runners then that means 36 horses will be losers (or winners for the bookmakers) and just 4 will be winners for punters (or losers for the bookmakers) – meaning the layers have a huge advantage here.

Having said that, in order for the bookmakers to attract custom many will enhance their each-way places to 5, 6, 7 or maybe even 8 places.

Each-way terms for the Grand National are paid out at ¼ the odds.

For example – if you back a 20/1 horse that finishes second, you’ll be paid out at ¼ the odds at 20/1 = 5/1.
A £10 each-way bet on this 20/1 (2nd) example would cost you £20 but return you £60 (1/4 the odds 5/1).
