Popular 2019 Grand National Bets
The most straightforward betting types you can place on the Grand National are known as win, each-way, or place betting.
A bet to win is simply selecting a horse that you think is going to win the race. An each-way bet consists of two bets on the same horse, with the first part of the bet being to win, and the second half for it to be placed – with the place terms dependent on the number of runners in the race, as will be outlined prior to the race event starting. Should your horse win the race having placed an each-way bet, you will be returned both parts of the bet, as you have succeeded in finding the winner and a selection that has placed.
Another way to get involved from a betting perspective, is forecast or tricast betting. Within this type of bet, you are selecting 2 or 3 horses which will finish in the exact order that you have selected them in, for example horse 1 to come 1st in the race, with horse 2 finishing in 2nd. This is much more challenging to predict than a straight win or each way bet, but is much more rewarding if successfully done. There are many variants of forecast betting with varying degrees of difficulty.
Finally, you can also consider placing multiples throughout Grand National day. This is where you combine multiple selections into a bet to get a bigger return on your stake – such as a Lucky 15, which consists of 4 selections, with the following breakdown of bets involved; 4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a 4-fold accumulator.
If you’re making use of one of our partners free bet or betting offers, then make sure that the terms and conditions allow you to use the free bet as you intend. Free bets and betting offers are often only available for single bets, and not multiples.

It’s crucial that you read the full offer details before signing up so that you know what to do in order to claim your free bet or betting offer.

It may also occur that your stake won’t be credited until after the horse race you have bet on has been settled – this is the case in any offers that offer risk-free bets, or money back.
If you’re unsure as to who to sign up with, then why not browse through the bookmaker reviews we’ve written, which you can find on the free bets page.
Best Grand National Non-Runner No Bet Offers
A popular feature, these may be one of the best ways to make the most of your bet – non-runner no bet.
This offer is most often applied to the antepost market, whereby you can try to pick out the winner sooner at a better price. However, if it fails to run, rather than losing money like you normally would, you then get your stake back as a free bet, or sometimes as cash.
Best Grand National Betting Offers
Throughout the run-up to the 2019 Grand National, there will be many betting offers for you to take advantage of. On what is often the most heavily punted race throughout the racing calendar, you will find that there are many great opportunities that you’re able to to make the most off with your free bet or betting offer.
Alongside new customer sign-up free bets and betting offers, be sure to check out which bookmakers are offering other promotions such as ‘best odds guaranteed’, and thereby if the starting price is better than the odds you backed the horse at, then you’ll get the better price. This helps you to discover extra value when you’ve successfully predicted an outcome.
Bookmakers also run ongoing free bets and betting offers, so it is likely that you’ll find a promotion that covers the 3-day festival at Aintree. This could consist of free bets clubs – where you can get a free bet when you bet across several races, staking a required limit in order to qualify for the offer. Again, it is important to read carefully through the terms and conditions, as these offers are often for specified races on a given day or week, and may not cover all racing that there’s a market available for.
Furthermore, you can also get insurance based offers – the most common being that, if your horse finishes second or third in an event, then you’ll get your stake back, up to an outlined limit, back as a free bet. The free bet refunded by the bookmaker is then often available to use on other racing, or other sports if it takes your fancy.
