A few years ago the queues outside bookmakers on Grand National day would stretch down the high street. Now-a-days most people place their bets online. Bookmakers websites are quick to join, easy to navigate and safe to use. We only recommend you use trusted bookmakers like: Paddy Power, Ladbrokes, William Hill and Boylesports.
All the bookmakers we list are licensed, regulated and have 24 hour customer support. We know you can trust these guys, because we regularly use all of them to place our bets. We could list more bookmakers than we currently do, but we feel it’s better to focus on quality over quantity.
You might ask ‘Who is the best bookmaker?‘ Well, it all depends on what type of bet you want to place, the size of bet and other considerations like what Free Bet deals are being offered.
For the average Grand National punter a bookmaker like Paddy Power is going to be your best bet. Firstly their website is really easy to use, joining only takes a minute and you can use all major UK debit and credit cards and Paypal to fund your bets. Secondly, and possible the biggest reason to bet with Paddy Power for the Grand National is they payout on the first 5 horses for each-way bets, most other bookmakers only payout on the first 4 horses. So your each-way bet with Paddy Power has one more chance to win! Thirdly, Paddy Power always offers a free bet deal on the day of the National. Other bookmakers withdraw theirs! – The swines.
We think Paddy Power is the best Grand National bookmaker.

If you fancy placing a big bet on the National (over £200) then you should take a look at Betfair. They usually have the best odds on any given race, including the Grand National. However, it’s worth pointing out that Betfair isn’t a bookmaker in the traditional sense. It’s a betting exchange, this means you can get bigger odds, place bigger bets and can even back horses to lose! Of course all these advanced options make the website more difficult to use than a traditional bookies site. You’ll need to be fairly savvy with betting online and good with numbers/odds to get the most out of Betfair.
