Make the most of your Grand National by betting with the bookies that pay extra places.
The Grand National is the biggest betting event in the country, and the most watched horse race in the entire world. This year, over 600 million people will watch as 40 horses and jockeys compete to become the latest winner of racing’s biggest prize.
Many people bet each way on the Grand National, so it makes sense to place your bet with bookies that offer extra places. Some bookies are paying 5 places or even 6 places each way, which means you get paid if your horse finishes in the top 6. That way you have much more chance of winning!
To claim the extra place offer, just click on the green button next to the bookmaker you want to bet with. Spend just 2 minutes registering your details to open your free account. You can then bet on any runner you like in the Grand National, and your bet will be paid out with the extra places shown.
Stay tuned to this page, the list above will be updated as soon as any bookie announces their extra place offers for the Grand National this year!
With a field of 40 runners negotiating 30 fences over a gruelling 4 mile trip, it’s not surprising that picking the winner in the Grand National can be tricky even for an expert punter. That’s why so many people like to bet each way on the race. With most horses going off at big prices, it means that you get a very decent return on your bet even if your horse only places.
So that’s why you need to keep an eye on how many places your bookie is paying. By default, they will only pay 4 places. That means if your horse finishes 4th or better, you get paid on an each way bet. But when you choose a bookie that is paying 5 places or even 6, that gives you one or two extra chances to win. It can make a massive difference.
Put it this way, if you choose to bet each way on a horse in the Grand National and it finishes 5th or 6th, do you want the bookie to pay out, or would you prefer them to keep your stake? It’s as simple as that.
