National Betting Day: Why it’s about more than just the Grand National

| 05.04.2016

This weekend marks the return of the Aintree spectacle that is the Grand National but the big race isn’t the only show in town.

The day of the Grand National is historically the biggest betting day of the year, a time when even your Nan can be spotted cutting out selections from her favourite newspaper before toddling along to her nearest Ladbrokes shop (or using the App if she’s ultra modern).

But with so much more to enjoy this Saturday we’ve gone the whole hog and made April 9 the very first National Betting Day!

With Anthony Joshua gunning for the World Heavyweight title, a raft of tasty football matches, the third round of the Masters and much more bedsides there’ll be literally thousands of sporting opportunities to sink your teeth into.

Make sure you follow the action at Ladbrokes News, on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to make the most of a wide range of National Betting Day activity.

We’ll be announcing some fantastic offers, huge price boosts, offering previews of all the top action and even putting together some bets that will have Nan thinking about more than the colour of Ruby Walsh’s hat.

So whatever you plan to back this weekend, be sure to head to Ladbrokes.com or visit us in shop before you place that bet.

Hopefully you’ll be celebrating #NationalBettingDay with some winners!
