Grand National Offers for Existing Customers

Here is the final list of what is available for existing customers. There are offers from bet365, Boylesports, Betway, Betfair and Winner.


  • Get Half of Your Stake Back When You Bet Each Way
  • For the latest new customer offer, see the bet365 bonus code page

In our opinion, this is hands down the best offer available today.

This Grand National Money Back Offer is only available to eligible bet365 customers who opened their account before 23:59:59 UK Time on Wednesday 3rd April 2019.

Get half your stake back when you place your Each Way bets (up to £125*).

*or currency equivalent.

Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. Eligible customers only.

  • Money Back If Your Horse Finishes 2nd to Tiger Roll

Tiger Roll is the favourite to win today.

While he is the most likely horse to win out of the pack, his odds are really short. Those who have him in the sweepstake will be delighted, but those betting with their money will probably want something priced bigger.

If you fancy one of the longer priced horses, then Boylesports could be a great option for you.

They’ll give you money back as a free bet if your horse finishes 2nd to Tiger Roll.

You need to opt-in first, and the maximum refund you can get is £20. It will be paid as a free bet. Plus Boylesports still have their welcome offer live.

  • Paying 7 Places on the Grand National

Yes, we have a separate section later for who is paying the most places on the Grand National, but because it’s so good, we had to include it here.

Unibet are the only bookmaker today to offer a massive 7 places on the Grand National.

You can do this in conjunction with their new customer offer listed above.

  • Bet £10 on the Grand National and get 40 Free Spins

Bet £10+ on the Grand National and Betway will give you 40 free spins on the ‘Final Furlong’ slots. If you’re not lucky on the main race, you might be lucky on the slots!

Betway have withdrawn their new customer welcome offer, so you won’t be able to do that in conjunction.

  • Grand National – Back the Winner and Get a Free Bet Up to £25

If you’re backing Tiger Roll, this could get you some extra value.

Back a winner at odds of 3/1, and Betfair will give you a £25 free bet.

You’ll receive your free within 2 hours of the bet settling and you’ll have 48 hours to use it after the Grand National. There is plenty of Premier League to use it on this weekend.


  • Grand National – Back a Winner and Get a Free Bet Up to £50 on the Next Race

This is similar to Betfair.

Back a winner at 4/1 or more and get a risk free bet on the next live ITV race (up to £50) at bet365. Offer applies to first single bet placed. Applies to Win and Each-Way Fixed Odds markets and Enhanced Place Terms markets only. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.

  • First Televised Race on Saturday – Money Back If You Lose

Another offer from Betway.

This is not an offer for the Grand National, but it’s available for the first televised race on ITV at Aintree.

If your hose loses, then Betway will refund your losing stake as a free bet. You could take advantage of this for the first race, and then if you don’t win, use your refunded bet on the Grand National.

A maximum refund of £10 applies.

  • Bet 5 x £5 Bets and Get a £5 Free Bet
  • Money Back If Your Hose Falls Up to £10

There are 40 runners today, so many people will back a few horses.

If you hold a 10Bet account, then take advantage of this offer. Opt-in first, and then when you bet £5 five times, you’ll be rewarded with a £5 free bet.

Your qualifying bets can be used on any of the races earlier in the day, which are all televised on ITV.

On top of that, 10Bet will give you money back if your horse falls in the race, up to £10.


  • Grand National – Money Back If Your Horse Falls, Unseats or Is Brought Down

Everyone knows the Grand National is a demanding race. The fences are much more forgiving then they were in the race, but it’s a long race nonetheless.

If you back a horse in the Grand National today and it falls, the jockey is unseated or brought down, then Winner will give you your money back.

The max refund you can get is £10, and it’s awarded as a free bet.

Each Way Place Terms for the Grand National By Bookmaker

7 places is the best available for the Grand National today.

It’s offered by Unibet. The rest are offering 6, 5 and 4 places.

Here is the breakdown by bookmaker:

We don’t foresee any further changes on places offered.

Bookmakers changed the number of places they were offering daily in the run up to the Grand National. You will need to check your betting slip, rather than this table if you’re looking it up after the race.

Best Odds Guaranteed By Bookmaker

Remember, this is not guaranteeing that you will get the best odds across all bookmakers. Instead, if you back a horse and the odds get better after you back it, then when the race starts, you’ll get those new odds. You can get extra winnings this way.

Here is a breakdown of bookmakers and what they are offering:

The final field has now been confirmed, so NRNB has been removed by most bookmakers.

What Do I Need To Know When Betting On The Grand National?

1) When is the 2019 Grand National?

The Grand National takes place today, at 5.15 pm.

2) What TV Station is it on?

The Grand National is broadcasted live on ITV One.

3) How Many Runners are there?

There are 40 runners, and the final list has already been confirmed. Back up races will replace any non-runners.

4) Who Is the Favourite This Year?

Tiger Roll is the favourite. Earlier in the week, he was as short as 4.50. Now you can back him at 6.00. This is a really low price, so many tipsters would look elsewhere for value.

5) How Often Does the Favourite Win?

Not often at all. In the past 10 years, the favourite has won once. The Grand National is more like a lottery than anything else.

Here are horses winners over the past 10 years, and their odds. This gives you an idea of the sort of odds a winning horse can have:

  • 2018 – Tiger Roll (14/1)
  • 2017 – One For Arthur (14/1)
  • 2016 – Rule The World (33/1)
  • 2015 – Many Clouds (33/1)
  • 2014 – Pineau De Re (25/1)
  • 2013 – Auroras Encore (66/1)
  • 2012 – Neptune Collonges (33/1)
  • 2011 – Ballabriggs (14/1)
  • 2010 – Don’t Push It (10/1 Joint Favourite)
  • 2009 – Mon Mome (100/1)

6) How Do Betting Odds Work?

We’ve got a great article on how betting odds work. You can read it here.

7) What Does ‘Each-Way’ Mean?

This is a popular way to bet on the Grand National.

If you bet each-way, it means you have two bets. One bet is for the horse to win, and then the second bet is for it to finish in the first ~5 positions. Because there are so many runners, this can make it more fun.

Check out our full guide to each way betting to learn more.

8) What Do ‘Places’ Mean?

This relates to the above. If you bet for a horse to place as part of an each-way bet, the ‘places’ means the number of positions the horse must finish within for the bet to win the ‘place’ part of the each way bet.

‘5 places at 1/5’ odds means your horse must finish in the top five, and you’ll receive one-fifth of the odds for it to win.

9) What does NRNB stand for?

Throughout this article, we refer to ‘NRNB’. It stands for ‘non-runner no bet’ and means if the horse doesn’t run in the race, you receive your money back. This is more common with ante-post betting.

10) What Does ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ (BOG) Mean?

The odds to back a horse has the potential to change. Some bookmakers will offer best odds guaranteed for the Grand National, meaning that if the starting price (SP) is a better price than the odds you backed it at, the bookmaker will pay you out at the bigger SP price if you win.

11) What Does Ante-Post Mean?

This refers to betting on the Grand National in advance of the final runners being announced.

List of Bookmakers That Have Withdrawn Their Offers

Around a third of bookies ill withdraw their welcome offer on the Friday/ Saturday of the Grand National. They don’t want to give away free bets for people that are only going to use it on the Grand National then never return. You can still sign up with them, you just won’t get a welcome offer.

Here is the list as it stands on Saturday:

  • Betfred
  • Totesport
  • Paddy Power (Switched to ‘2 horses for the price of 1’)
  • Betway
  • William Hill (Switched to ‘bet 10 get 10’)
  • Bet Victor
  • Ladbrokes
  • Coral
