It is usually early in April each year that the Grand National is held in the UK at the Aintree racecourse and you are going to find a spectacle of National Hunt racing if you do have the time to watch it.
With a four mile course ahead of them and some of the most challenging of fences to jump, it takes not only a powerful horse to win but also a jockey that can handle that intense course too.
It may or may not surprise you to learn that the Grand National is, from a betting point of view, the one horse race in the United Kingdom that does attract the highest volumes of bets and wager from punters.
In fact, it is not only fans of horse racing that place bets on that race but a large percentage of the population of the UK like to have a little flutter on it too.
Many bookmakers will have a make or break year dependent on whether the favourite wins or not, and as such whilst many punters will be willing on the favourite to win, it will be one of the outsiders that all bookmakers will be hoping wins.
Bitcoin betting sites, and in fact all betting sites are going to want you to bet on this race, and as such well in advance of it actually starting you will be offered ante post odds, which is where some of the best betting value can be had.
However, if you do plan on betting on the Grand National using Bitcoin using an ante post betting market then keep in mind that if the horse you pick doesn’t actually run, some betting sites could class that bet as a losing one, and not give you your stake money back, so there can be risk to betting on such a betting market.
One way that a growing number of punters will also be hoping to cash in from the Grand National, much like all Bitcoin sportsbooks and betting sites will be, is to actually offer other punters the chance of betting with them and not at a betting site.
That is something you can do by signing up to a Bitcoin betting exchange, and by doing so you can choose to either place your bets ad you normally would, or you can instead offer your own odds on as many horse running in the Grand National as you like.
If anyone accepts your odds then if their horse wins you pay them out their winnings, but if the horse loses then you get to keep their stakes!
Betting on the Grand National when using Bitcoin as your chosen deposit option is going to see you being showered will all manner of unique bonuses and free bets, dependent on where you choose to place your bets at.
So become something of a savvy punter and spend some time comparing not only the odds on offer on whichever horse you do fancy to get the highest valued odds, but also hunt around for the best promotional deals available too.
