Typically the minimum deposit is about £10 although it can be a little higher with some bookmakers. This money is then taken from your bank account (if you used a switch card) or credit card and shown as your account balance. No more money is taken from your account so its easy to limit your losses, an of course you are free to withdraw your money whenever you want much in the same way as you deposited it.
Once you have money in your bookmaker account you are free to bet up to that amount on the Grand National or any of their markets. There is rarely a minimum amount for a bet but this is never more than £2 and usually a lot less.

Thereafter just select the horse you want to bet on and then enter a stake. You will then be presented with a confirmation page.
