What Is Each Way Betting?
An each way (also seen as E/W) bet consists of two equal sized wagers: a ‘win bet' and a ‘place bet'. For the win part of the bet to give a return, the selection must finish first. For the place part of the bet to give a return, the selection must either finish first or finish amongst the ‘places'. So by betting Each Way at Grand National, you essentially have 2 bets: 1 bet for the horse to win and 1 bet for the horse to place. To learn more you can read our full guide here.
