The Keno Grand National style uses another popular gambling alternative, horse racing, to inspire its imagery and number board. The charming style has each of the forty numbers represent different horses, each with its own inspired name like “Jammy Dodger” or “Liza’s Leaky Bucket.” As they run across the finish line, numbers are chosen from the Keno board. Hopefully you chose correctly!

When you’ve seen one Keno game, you’ve seen them all. However, the little differences between Keno varieties can make all the difference. For instance, Keno Grand National earns big points with its smooth graphics and simple interface. It provides all the information you might need, including a payoff schedule that helps you decide how many numbers to bet for the maximum chances of success. In Keno, the more numbers you bet, the greater your chance of one of them being chosen, but the lower your payout for each correct choice.

Apart from the buttons letting you choose up to eight numbers on the forty-number board, there are only five buttons: two to raise or lower your stake, one to choose a random selection of numbers, one to clear the board and one to play. They are intuitively organized for easy access.

Grand National Keno is a classic Keno game. Its payoff schedule injects a little complex strategy into an otherwise simple game, and its cute aesthetic is sure to please horse racing fans as well as people who enjoy smooth graphics. Try out Grand National Keno at Ladbrokes Games today!

Every day of the championship extravaganza is a race day, as the John Smith’s Melling Steeple Chase is the featured race of the day. This has been a highly challenged event in the past few years and should be the same this year.

The Grand National Horse Race is finally run on Saturday 14 April and is the culmination of the week’s schedule. The championship has a storied past among racehorse professionals and within the British culture. It is a specialized race industry that is native to the United Kingdom and enjoyed by everyone up to the Royal Family, who are not only big fans, but are horse owners themselves.

The Grand National Horse Race is an historic event dating back officially to 1839, though there were predecessors to the first official race, and it has been an iconic representation of United Kingdom sports very similar to its professional golf tournaments. The Aintree Racecourse is one of the most difficult courses in the world and provides an excellent course to test the best of the steeple chase racehorse class. The energy infused by the local city of Liverpool, with a population of over 400,000 and a surrounding urban area of over 800,000, will make this year’s championship a major success and well worth attending.

The United Kingdom prides itself on it’s amazing and prestigious horse races. The Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival is one of the most prestigious races in the United Kingdom. The Festival is within the calendar of National Hunt Racing. It draws all types of jockeys and their horses, with the amount of prize money being second to the Grand National race. Taking place every year in March, The Festival is held in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. However it is most popular with Irish horse enthusiasts because it coincides with St. Patrick’s Day. Most of horses that race at the festival are British and Irish.

Cheltenham Gold Cup

The third day will be St. Patrick’s Thursday, where jockeys and spectators celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a few competitive races and the last and most important day is Cheltenham Gold Cup Day. Many consider Cheltenham Gold Cup Day as the best betting day at the festival.

As might be expected, 2011 Gold Cup winner Long Run is the early favourite to repeat. However, two-time Cup winner Kauto Star cannot be ignored, especially when remembering the horse’s thirteen-length victory in 2009. Kauto Star is currently second on the board. If Kauto Star will prove a popular winner if he can find his form after a very bad preparation for the race. Outsiders like ‘Weird Al’ also stand a good chance if the ground suits them.

Once the festival is over the National Hunt season only has one big race left – The Grand National! if you can pick a out winning horse in that race you’ll be beating the odds for sure.

Charles Swan is the greatest Irish-based jump jockey ever to be denied a victory in the Grand National. He was Ireland’s champion jump jockey nine times and was the first in Ireland to ride 150 winners in a season, and the first to reach 1,000 winners. Yet eight attempts at the National, and his best placing was fifth place on Lastofthebrownies in 1990, which was his debut in the race.

Born on January 20th 1968, Charlie cried the first time he watched the Grand National on the television – he was just seven years old and he was watching his father Captain Donald Swan crash out at the fourth after leading from the start, on his own horse Zimulator, a 100/1 outsider. His father had him riding a pony at the age of four, and had him helping to break in horses by the age of eight – he rode his first winner Final Assault at Naas in March 1983, at the age of fifteen, after which followed a four year apprenticeship with trainer Kevin Prendergast, where he rode 57 winners on the Flat and shared a flat in Kildare with Kieren Fallon.
