Grand National Free Bets That Work

grandnationalIt’s Grand National time! The day when everyone including your granny has a bet. But it can be tricky to get hold of the normal betting offers on the big day.

That leads many people to ask us: Which Bookmakers are offering free bets on the Grand National?

It’s true that some bookmakers do not offer their normal signup offers on National day. But the good news is that there are other bookies that are still offering free bets on the Grand National.

Of course you don’t want to waste your time hunting around for the free bets that work. You have winners to pick! So we’ve done the hard work for you.

Here’s a list of those that are offering a free bet. If a bookmaker is not listed below, then they will not be offering any signup bonus today…

Please bear in mind that bookmakers only announce their intentions for Grand National free bets in the days and weeks leading up to the race, and the changes normally only apply on Grand National day itself. So if you’re reading this on any other day of the year, then all new customer free bet offers will still be available to you as normal.

You can claim any (or all) of the free bets listed above by simply clicking the green button and spending 2 minutes registering your details. You can the claim the offer advertised, and sit back and enjoy the race!

Why Do Some Bookies Remove Their Free Bet On Grand National Day?

Just like any betting sign up offer, when bookmakers give you a free bet they are normally losing money. It’s similar to when you see a buy one, get one free offer in your supermarket. There’s no way that the seller can make money if they give you two for the price of one. However, the idea is that it gets people to try the product, and hopefully if they like it they will keep coming back for more.

But when it comes to betting, many people who have a bet on the Grand National are not regular punters. In some cases they only bet once a year – on the National itself – and that’s it. So some bookies don’t want to offer a special deal to customers who they don’t feel will ever come back. Instead they offer extra places on the race itself, which is still a very popular deal.

That’s not true in all cases though. Several bookies are more generous and continue to offer a free bet on Grand National day. This is either because they have a larger budget that allows them to, or because they know their product is so good that plenty of people will decide to come back and bet on other events throughout the year as well.
