Why do bookies withdraw their Grand National Free Bets?

Most casual punters will have a bet on the Grand National, whether there is a free bet or not. So the bookmakers all know that there is no need to offer any free bets.

The odd bookmaker may well offer us a Grand National incentive to try and get us to use them, Paddy Power are good for those sort of things (ie, an extra place in the Each-Way betting). It is my experience though, that a lot of bookmakers withdraw free bet during the week before the big race.

There is a way around this though, as there are ways to place a free bet on the Grand National. To put it another way, there is an opportunity to have a Grand National Free Bet.

Simply find a bookmaker who offers a new customers free bet that is valid for 30 days from the day you open your new account, and about two weeks before the Grand National, open the account. Timing it in this way will ensure that the the new customers free bet hasn’t been removed ahead of the Grand National, and you will also have time to place and settle your qualifying bet.

This will then ensure that you will have your free bet sitting in your account ready to place on the Grand National.

The reason why bookmakers remove their free bet offers on the day – or the build up as well in some cases – is because they know that it is a day when the general non gambling public will place a bet, and they want to maximise the amount of money they can take on the big race. And in fairness to the bookies, why should the once a year gamblers be able to use a free bet!

Grand National Extra Each Way Places

To steal a march on their rivals some bookmakers will offer extra each-way places. Some bookmakers will offer 5 Each-Way Grand National Places, and the odd one might even offer 6 Each-Way Places On The Grand National.
