Grand National new customer betting offers and free bets

As you can see, there’s some variation between betting site offers when it comes to the types of Grand National free bets and promos that are available to new customers. Here we’ll explain the main pros and cons of each type of Grand National offer to help you decide which you prefer.

Be mindful that each promotion has it’s own unique terms and conditions, so give them a read to help you choose the best Grand National offers for you.

Money back if your first Grand National bet loses

One type of Grand National sign-up offer gives you the chance to get your initial stake back, either in the form of free bets or cash, if your first bet lets you down. It can be seen as something of a safety blanket, as your bet will either win to give you a profit or it will lose and you’ll still receive either your money back or a free bet to play with. Look out for the size of refund you’ll receive though, as it is generally capped at £10 or £20.

One bookmaker providing this kind of sign-up offer can be found below.

‘Bet and Get’ Grand National free bet offers

The most common type of Grand National welcome offer gives free bets once your initial bets have been placed and settled. Typically, you might be able to bet £10, in the knowledge that you’ll receive around £30 in free bet credits to place as you wish. The exact size of your qualifying bet, and the amount of any Grand National free bets you’ll be rewarded, will vary depending on the betting site, but this is an easy promotion to understand, and also gives you a good chance to try out the site with minimal risk if you’re looking for somewhere to bet after the Grand National has taken place.

You can find a few ‘Bet and Get’ free bet Grand National offers right here.

Bet £10 & Get £30 in Free Bets for new customers at bet365.
Min deposit requirement. Free Bets are paid as Bet Credits and are available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply. Registration required. Full T&Cs

Grand National deposit bonuses

Another type of Grand National sign-up offer is based on the size of your initial deposit. These promotions often offer a larger amount of free bets than those described about, but a wagering requirement may also exist. This means to receive a bonus of £50 with a wagering requirement of 5x the bonus amount, you’ll have to bet £250 before any winnings can be withdrawn.

It is therefore best suited to those who are expecting to bet larger amounts and more regularly than the recreational once-a-year players that the Grand National often attracts. An example of this type of bonus can be found below.

100% up to £50
New bettors; Code SPORT; Wager deposit & bonus 8x; Max qualifying bet stake=initial bonus; Valid 60 days; Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply; T&C apply; 18+ Full T&Cs

Grand National bonus spins, slots and casino offers

Some bookmakers try to attract new customers by offering bonuses that can be played through on slots or casino. This is most appealing to those who are betting on the Grand National but also have an interest in playing slots, rather than just sports betting. As with most non-sports betting bonuses, there is always this chance to win a significant jackpot, but this must be balanced by wagering requirements which can sometimes be 35x the bonus amount.

An example of a bookmaker offering a slots bonus alongside their Grand National sportsbook welcome offer is detailed below.

Bet £10 Get £30 in Free Bets + 50 Free Spins
New customers online only. Eligibility restrictions apply. Only valid with code B10G30PLUS50FS on registration. £10 min qualifying bet at 1/1 (2.0) odds or greater across sports or racing (if EW then min £10 Win + £10 Place). Receive £10 Tote Credit, £20 Free Sports Bet and 50 Free Spins on Big Bass Bonanza within 48 hours of qualifying bet settlement. 7-day expiry on free bets & Tote Credit. Your first bet will be your qualifying bet. One per customer. UK & ROI customers only. 18+. Full T&Cs apply. Gambleaware.org. Full T&Cs

Boosted Grand National betting odds

Occasionally bookmakers offer new customers vastly enhanced odds on big events as an incentive to sign up with them. For example, last year William Hill allowed new customers the chance to place their first bet of £1 at odds of 150/1 for Rachael Blackmore to ride the winner in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The stakes are invariably limited but the size of the enhanced odds offer can make this type of promotion well worth considering.

Grand National existing customer offers & free bets

We’ve highlighted the most appealing Grand National new customer sign-up offers above, but betting sites know they must also give you plenty of reasons to continue betting with them after the Grand National.

Some areas to consider when signing up with a new bookmaker are generous odds, quick withdrawals and a live streaming facility, but let’s delve deeper into the types of Grand National existing customer offers you can expect to find.

Grand National extra places and each-way offers

Undoubtedly the most popular and important Grand National offer is where bookmakers payout on extra places, as it can literally be the difference between your bet winning or losing.

Grand National extra places, on top of the four offered under industry rules, are invariably offered to Grand National existing customers, with some bookmakers stretching to six or seven places come race day. This would mean that if you backed a horse each-way and it finished sixth or seventh, you’d still be paid out some winnings, instead of narrowly missing out.

We’re updating the varying Grand National extra places and each-way terms on our dedicated page.

Grand National non-runner no bet offers

After the final declarations are made, on the Thursday or Friday before the Grand National, new and existing Grand National bettors are covered by non-runner rules which guarantee money back if any horses we bet on don’t run. That isn’t the case with ante-post betting, where non-runners would be considered losing bets. Not to worry though. Many firms online offer ‘NRNB’ (non-runner, no bet) or ‘NRMB’ (non-runner money-back) deals. This provides the assurance of getting your stake back should your horse not run in the Grand National.

Grand National faller, unseated or brought down offers

The Aintree racecourse in Liverpool has 30 tricky fences and a busy field of 34 runners, so it’s very unlikely that we won’t see a horse fall during the race.

A Grand National existing customer offer may therefore be run where your stakes are refunded up to a certain amount as a free bet. It goes without saying that this is a great promotion with around 10 of the 34 Grand National runners expected to end their race in this unfortunate way.

Grand National boosted odds offers

As well as Grand National free bets, a lot of betting sites will also offer enhanced odds on the Grand National. This means you may be able to get 10/1 on a horse that other firms are offering 7/1 on. These offers are generally available to new and existing Grand National customers.
Flash odds and happy hour promotions are where you’ll find enhanced Grand National odds for a limited period, mainly in the days leading up to the the Grand National. The offers won’t necessarily be on a single horse, but may focus on all grey horses, female jockeys, a specific trainer, or other areas that are known to appeal to punters.

Grand National betting sites that keep their offers

There are a few bookmakers that make the decision to withdraw their Grand National offers in the build up to the big race. The free bets and betting offers that are often available are offered under the assumption that punters will continue to use those sites for their future bets, but a number of Grand National bettors actually only bet once a year.

The Grand National betting sites that are expected to retain their horse racing sign-up offers for the Aintree showpiece can be found below. More sites and Grand National offers may be confirmed soon, so check back for the most up to date list ahead of the race.

Grand National betting sites that withdraw their offers

Grand National betting sites that have previously removed their free bet offers for the big day are listed here, so it can pay to sign up in advance if these are sites which would interest you.

  • Betfred
  • Coral
  • Ladbrokes
  • Unibet
