We’ll explain all about the different types of bets you can make on the Grand National and where you can place them safely. Before we dive into the nitty gritty of backing a horse, it’s worth noting that all gambling involves an element of risk.
The Golden Rule: Never bet more than you can comfortably afford to lose.
The first step is finding a horse to back. There are a number of ways you can go about this – you can choose to study the form, randomly select a horse using the non scientific method of sticking a pin in the newspaper or just choose a name you like – don’t forget you can check out all of this year’s runners here.
Once you’ve picked your horse for the big race you’re ready to make a bet, but where to do it? Essentially, you have two options, bet with one of the high street betting shops or do it online.
Like most things these days, doing it online is often the easiest way. If you’re not already signed up with an online bookmaker then you’ll need to join one before placing your bet. Betfair is one of the biggest bookmakers in Europe and as a new customer you’ll qualify for a promotional deal! Registering for an account takes a few minutes and once you’ve joined you can fund your bets, and withdraw from your Betfair account using a debit/credit card or PayPal.
