Grand National Betting Options

It’s important to note that High Street bookmakers have different each-way terms in their shops and the best value terms are undoubtedly to be found online using the bookmakers listed above. Bookmaker welcome offers are often reduced or removed as the Grand National approaches so you can check the latest offers using the links in the table above.

1/4 odds versus 1/5 odds

Aside from the number of each-way places that bookmakers offer for the Grand National, they also state the calculation determining what proportion of the odds you’ll get returned if your horses finishes in the each-way paying places.

Some bookmakers offer 1/4 odds; others offer 1/5 odds – in a situation where you’re getting the same number of each way places, 1/4 odds pays 25% more than 1/5 odds in terms of the return you’ll receive from an each way place – so in general 1/4 odds is the best option.

However, some bookmakers offer you an additional place for taking the 1/5 odds which then creates an interesting dilemma! The choice as a punter is yours of course, do you trade the reduced return for an extra place? There’s no right or wrong answer here as both sides can be argued.

So BetVictor customers have received some huge additional returns, simply by backing their fancy with them.

n 2011, BetVictor were the first bookmaker in history to pay out 6 places each way and it seriously cost them as The Midnight Runner finished 6th. That delivered a profitable 15/8 place return for a legion of punters who’d had the foresight to back the favourite with BetVictor.

Swing Bill finished 6th in 2013 at 80/1 (20/1 for the place) and 2014 saw the well-backed Chance Du Roy finish 6th at 33/1. Only BetVictor backers received just over 8/1 for the Philip Hobbs horse.

2015 and 2016 saw the trend of double-digit priced horses finishing in the additional 6th place, with Royale Knight (20/1) and Ucello Conti (25/1) delivering 5/1 and 6/1 place returns for punters who were astute enough to use BetVictor.

Since then, Gas Line Boy (50/1), Vieux Lion Rouge (12/1), Milansbar (25/1), Road To Riches (33/1), Anibale Fly 10/1 and One For Arthur (20/1) have all produced each-way returns for punters astute enough to use a bookmaker offering a Grand National 6 places each way option.

Remember that backers of all of these horses with other online bookmakers who didn’t extend beyond the standard 4 places each way received no payout.
