Which are the best Cheltenham Festival and Grand National Betting Sites?

Online betting is big business in the UK and Ireland with many leading bookmakers offering some excellent incentives to new customers. Indeed, never before has there been a better time for punters to register with an online betting operator and take advantage of an ever-increasing variety of new-customer offers.

When registering a new account with a bookmaker, new players are generally offered some sort of welcome bonus and these come in many forms, from matched deposit bonuses to free bet offers and cash-back promotions. These bonuses can be used on most sporting events and they are particularly useful for the larger occasions such as the Grand National and Cheltenham festival.

When registering with a bookmaker, it is important that you consider the odds on offer for your chosen sport while it is equally important that you ensure that your preferred sports betting markets are covered. Some betting sites place more emphasis on a particular sport such as football and horse racing, however you might find that your chosen betting provider doesn't cover many of the smaller and less popular events.

As a rule, almost every single bookmaker offers a wealth of betting markets for horse racing and fans of this particular sport are well catered for in terms of free bets and other offers. The Cheltenham Festival is one of the biggest meetings in the UK and as one would expect, the UK bookmakers always gear themselves up for the event by offering a great variety of Cheltenham Free Bets, enhanced places and boosted odds on many of the key races.

Another hugely popular horse racing event is the Grand National, this being a race in which members of the public who never usually place a bet become involved, either through individual bets or via a sweepstake. As with the Cheltenham Festival, bookmakers tend to pull out all the stops for the Aintree spectacular with enhanced place offers, free bet bonuses and cash-back promotions throughout the three-day festival. Again, it is vital that you do some research here before choosing a particular bookmaker in order to take advantage of the very best Grand National free bet offers and enhanced places.

Irish customers are particularly well served here with all major bookies operating in the Emerald Isle offering a wealth of bonuses exclusive to Irish-based punters. Indeed all betting sites in the Republic of Ireland offer a wealth of markets covering horse racing and players can bet on all UK and Irish race meetings such as the Cheltenham Festival and Grand National as well as events from further afield such as USA and France. Many Irish-based bookmakers offer Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish racing events while new customers registering with these betting providers can also enjoy a range of Free Bets which can be used on most sporting events.
