Get ready for the Grand National with the Racing Post Grand National Sweepstake Kit. Whether you’re playing with friends or organising the office sweepstake, it’s far easier to use our automated generator to allocate runners to each participant.
The Grand National is the most famous horse race on earth. Each year, 40 horses and their jockeys take on a 4-mile-514-yard course containing 30 obstacles in a bid to win £500k. Enjoy the race with friends and colleagues using the Racing Post’s free Grand National Sweepstake generator.
Simply enter the player names into the generator and we’ll automatically assign every player with a horse. If there are fewer than 40 participants, you will be assigned multiple horses so that there is a guaranteed winner.
A sweepstake kit is a tool used to divide up the 40 runners in the Grand National equally by the number of participants. Typically, there will be 40 participants in the Grand National sweepstake, and each participant will be assigned a horse. The participant with the winning horse wins the sweepstake.
If you're playing with friends or colleagues at work, you may decide to place a bet on the sweepstake (£1 per entry for example), and the winner of the sweepstake will win the pot (£40). If you do not have 40 participants, usually the sweepstake is opened up to allow for multiple entries per person (2 entries = £2) and if either of those horses win the Grand National, that person will win the pot.
