How to Join an Online Betting Site

Next, you will need to create an account with your chosen bookmaker. This starts by clicking one of the links above, after which you will be taken to the registration page of that betting site. Here, you will be required to enter personal details including your name, date of birth and address, as well as selecting a username and password to use as your login details. Be aware that this is also the stage where you will be required to enter any promo codes if you are claiming a welcome offer.

Once you have entered all of these details correctly, you will then need to provide proof of ID for your account to be verified. Remember only players aged 18 or older will be able to create a betting account in the UK. Once your account has been verified, you will then be free to begin browsing their site and begin planning your Grand National bets. Once you have signed up, you will also have the option to download your bookmaker’s mobile betting app. There are a number of top horse racing betting apps that can be downloaded in time for the big race.


How to Place a Bet

Placing a bet online is a simple process that even first-time online punters can complete with little fuss. First, make a deposit using one of the selected payment methods to add funds to your account. Then, click your bookmaker’s link to their horse racing page and then select the Grand National. As one of the biggest sports to bet on in the UK, horse racing will generally be at the forefront of most betting site homepages.

Next, select the horse that you want to place a bet on and click it to add it to your betslip. Once it has been added to your betslip you will have two options — place a bet to win, or place an each-way bet. Betting on a horse to win will only be paid out as a winner, whereas each-way will see you paid out at 1/5 odds on the ‘to place’ half of your bet if your horse places. The Grand National regularly sees bookmakers offer to pay out on extra places on selections, often as far as seven or eight places.

When you are happy with your bet type, add your stake to the betslip and click ‘place bet’ to complete the process. Each of the betting sites listed above allow punters that have a bet on the race to live stream the Grand National via their betting account.
