Greyhound racing is one of the most popular spectator sports in Britain. Annual attendance at greyhound track events exceeds three million, with a total of £2.5 billion wagered on races each year.
The UK boasts around 30 racetracks, which between them host over 70,000 races annually. Greyhound racing’s image as the ‘poor relation of horseracing’ has long-since been shaken off, and a ‘night at the dogs’ is now seen as a fun occasion, that people from all walks of life can enjoy.
While attendance at live events is strong, an increasing number of people are choosing to bet on the outcome of greyhound racing via online betting sites. Such sites are easy to access, and provide a convenient and reliable way for greyhound race fans to place bets at times and locations that fit in with their busy lifestyles.
Most of the big-name sites host great introductory promotions. Stan James free bets, Betvictor free bets and William hill free bets are to name but a few.
Registration with a site is a straightforward process, and only takes a few minutes. Once your account is active, you can log onto the ‘greyhounds’ section of the website, and place your first bet.
To enhance the betting experience, sites often televise greyhound races live, bringing the thrill of the trackside into your own home. With such great offers available to new customers, there has never been a better time to sign up, and go to the dogs.
