In these modern times, placing a bet has never been easier. It is no longer a scary or long-drawn out process, so if you are planning to have a bet on this year’s Grand National, and you haven’t dabbled in the gambling world for a while, fear not, we are here to help.
With the rapid rise of online betting, a huge majority of bookmakers now take most of their business through that method in comparison to shop business.
One of the biggest misconceptions around online betting is the time it takes to sign-up. Many people are put off by the thought due to the apparent tedious ID checks bookmakers ask for. However, the reality is that it takes just a few minutes to sign up, with no additional checks needed.
All you need is a credit or debit card, a username and password and then you’re ready to place your Grand National bet.
In our opinion, one of the major things punters should consider when comparing the different online firms is concentrating on each respective company free bet offers.
Online betting have rapidly become of the most competitive market places in the business world. Each year technology is improving, with it bringing in a newer, younger, generation of gamblers that are taking advantage of the world of online sports betting.
This influx of custom has resulted in online firms offering potential new customers brilliant sign-up offers in order to make their product stand out from the crowd.
The Grand National is a brilliant time for new customers to sign-up as firms like Bet365, William Hill and Paddy Power all are offering new, exciting free bet offers which punters can use for their Grand National bets.
Bet365’s free offer of a free one-off bet up to £200 is arguably the most lucrative on the web. It works in the traditional match-bet formula; therefore, a first deposit made by the customer will be matched up to £200.
So, for example, if you deposit £200 to back On His Own in the Grand National at 13/2, Bet365 will stick another £200 in your account to wager on another selection, whatever sport you decide to wager on.
The same free-bet offer applies to any value up to £200, so if you deposit and bet £20 then you will receive a free £20 to go with it.
This offer the biggest free bet currently available to punters on the market, and this, along with the brilliant functionality of the website, make Bet365 are must use for all new customers.
Bet365 always roll the red carpet out for new customers when the Grand National comes around and offer some great initiatives, including providing the biggest odds in the industry.
For casual bettors, Paddy Power are probably the best online firm to sign up with as their aim is to make betting fun, but also to reward their customers with an array of free bets and offers, which in the long-term help sustain their customer base.
Their opening offer of £250 in free bets is currently one of the biggest offers anywhere in the bookmaking world.
The free bet Paddy Power are offering comes in five instalments of £50 and is brilliant to use over a long period of betting, like the Grand National meeting, which starts on the Thursday and finishes with the big one on Saturday.
When it comes to a bookmaking there isn’t a more famous name than William Hill and they continued their reputation in the recent boom in online betting.
Not only do they provide some of the biggest odds in the Grand National they also give punters a fantastic chance of taking some of their money, by offering them a free bet when signing up to their website worth £25.
