About Paddy Power
Ireland’s biggest independent and award-winning bookie, Paddy Power prides itself on taking any type of bet on any kind of event. However, it is heavily geared towards British and Irish customers betting on sports.
Its offering is described as ‘humorous, often edgy…innovative and quirky.’
The software is powered by industry juggernaut OpenBet and the graphics are crisp. The load times are speedy, the navigation is user-friendly, and it’s easy to access the full range of sports and betting opportunities from the home page.
Use the handy ‘Bet Calculator’ to estimate potential payouts across multiple betting options and the customer support is informed and professional.
Paddy Power is available on mobile and desktop, but live streaming isn’t available on mobile.
Paddy Power Sports Betting
The odds offered are not the best you will find on the market, but they hold their own.
When the prices are shortening, the odds are shown in red and when they are lengthening, the odds are shown in blue.
Paddy Power (usually) accepts larger bets online than the competition. This means you can make the bet online instead of being directed to a call centre, which is often the case from some web-based bookies.
What Can I Bet On?
The key priorities for this bookmaker are football and horse racing. There are up to a hundred markets for any of the Premiership games, but you can also bet on American football, golf, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, rugby (league and union), wrestling and winter sports.
This bookmaker is known for taking novelty bets, such as on the name of the next Archbishop of Canterbury, or Beyoncé’s first baby.
What’s more, it’s often prepared to discuss obscure sporting events not offered on the website.
Paddy Power has a live betting section which concentrates on events shown on terrestrial TV in Britain and Ireland, plus Sky Sports.
Paddy Power Sports Betting Promotions
When you register and bet your first £10, you get a free wager worth £20. In fact, it’s one of the most generous welcome bonuses in the industry.
There are also some well-known special promos in which the money you’ve staked on an event is refunded in the event you lose.
For example, in 2008, the deal was that all first goal scorer, right score and scorecast single bets would be refunded to betters in the Champions League final if Ronaldo scored. He did and Paddy Power ended up shelling out £1.2m back to players.
Exciting and attractive new promotions are being launched all the time.
Paddy Power Sports Betting
If you like to spread your bets more widely afield than the UK and Irish markets, you may find the focus of this operator a little too narrow for your liking, but, overall, Paddy Power has genuinely earned its strong reputation.
