Paddy power are an Irish bookmaker with a strong presence in the UK and one of the top betting sites here. Formed in 1988 after a merger between some of Ireland’s top bookies.
They like to take a light hearted approach to gambling, injecting a bit of fun to their promotional images and the types of random bets they offer from time to time – such as accepting wagers on who Luis Suarez is going to bite next.
What we like most about Paddy Power is that they run their signature money back specials on almost every sport!
These offers can be enough to encourage punters to bet on markets they wouldn’t usually. Refund triggers give a better deal on betting, if your bet is a loser you still stand to gain your stake back if a further event happens (which you can sometimes select from a list depending on the sport).
Some of the better offers are wheeled out for the biggest sporting events. Recent premier games league games between the top teams have included back a team to win and get your money back if the game finishes in a draw.
On top of the generous promotions you can take advantage of daily price boosts where certain odds are enhanced to pay you out even more if the bet wins.
The Paddy website is just one of the channels through which you can place your bets with them.
There are various apps designed for all mobile devices: tablets, phones, Apple, Android etc.
The website itself is thoughtfully laid out. The top promotions are given prominence on the home page, while the individual market listings make it clear which offer money back specials.
The odds update on the screen in real time so you don’t have to keep refreshing the page.
In our experience live chat has been helpful and able to resolve queries on the spot.
Paddy’s New Account Sign Up Bonus
When signing up with Paddy Power, new customers are currently rewarded with a 400% bonus for free.
If you deposit and bet £5, you get £20 to bet on any sports market. In terms of value for money this is one of the best offers going.
Money Back Specials
The Paddy Power betting listings are swamped with money back specials. While many bookies tend to concentrate their offers around main stream sports only, Paddy goes the extra mile to accommodate punters that are wagering on so called second tier sports as well.
A recent example of a great ongoing offer on horse racing from Paddy was their refund on 2nd and 3rd place horses (for a to win bet). This offer lasted for months and was available on one race a day.
On top football games they will sporadically offer up very generous promos such as back one team to win and get your money back if the game fizzles out as a draw.
Make sure you have a Paddy Power account in your locker – don’t miss out on the account sign up bonus nor the ongoing deals.
