Our Paddy Power review

Background

Paddy Power was formed in 1988 through the merger of three Irish independant bookmaking chains and is now the largest betting operation in Ireland, with betting shops throughout Ireland and the UK, a successful telephone betting service and a top class internet betting website.

Paddy Power's telephone betting service was set up in 1996, it is branded Dial-a-Bet and has become Ireland's biggest telephone betting operation. In June 1997, Paddy Power launched its online betting service for the Irish market and in 2001 it was extended to include the UK.

Paddy Power's strategy of making betting activity fun and accessible has proved to be very successful. The company specialises in providing entertaining betting opportunities and offers for small stakes customers and is renowned for its humurous advertising campaigns and controversial early settlement of bets that look 'likely' to win.

The formula is clearly working, as Paddy Power now operate over 300 betting shops in Ireland and the UK in addition to the telephone and internet division. Annual turnover is in excess of €2.75 Billion and Paddy Power PLC is a publicly quoted company listed on the Irish and London Stock Exchanges.

The company has continued to expand and in 2009 entered the Australian betting market when buying the controlling share in Sportbet Pty Ltd and entered the French market when forming a partnership with Europe's biggest Tote operator PMU. 

Offers and Promotions

New customers visting Paddy Power from Best Free Bets will qualify for a £20 FREE BET offer.

The betting requirement is quite straightforward; place a first bet of £10 and Paddy Power will credit your account with a £20 FREE BET.

Qualifying bets must be placed on selections greater than 1/2 (1.5) and the £20 free bet remains valid for 30 days..

Paddy Power has been the influence behind many of the offers that are now available with online sportsbooks. The insurance offered by Money-Back Specials for fallen horses, horses finising second and if your first goalscorer scores later in the game were pioneered by Paddy Power initiatives.

Currently Paddy Power are offering:

Guaranteed Price for all UK and Irish horse and greyhound racing

Half Time Saver - a refund on football accumulators that are winning at half time

In addition, Paddy Power offer a variety of Money-Back specials which will be dependent on the available events, but watch out for the following offers that pop up at regular intervals:

Money-Back if your horse finishes second to the favourite

Money-Back if your horse is beaten a nose or less

Money-Back if your horse falls

Money-Back if a specified player scores the last goal

Money-Back if a specified team takes the lead and fails to win

Money-Back if a specified player score the last try

Paddy Power offers don't stop there, you can count on Paddy Power coming up with a great offer for just about every major and high profile sporting event and feature horse race or horse race meeting.

The website features regular promotions and competitions, you can even email with a sporting rant and get the chance of winning a FREE BET.

Paddy Power loves to mix up its offers to keep promotions fresh, but sometimes it can leave a little disappointment, such as when the FREE BET offer for new customers changes.

Odds are very competitive, with Paddy Power not afraid to set the market and take an individual position.

Verdict

Paddy Power is a great example of why many gamblers prefer to bet with an independent bookmaker. It has a unique and fun approach, which is pleasantly different from the traditional corporate bookmaker's image.

Paddy Power is totally trustworthy and comes up with some fantastic offers and very competitive odds.

Paddy Power is highly recommended to the recreational gambler, however big-hitting players may find stake limits restrictive.
