Paddy Power Review

Paddy Power ReviewPaddy Power is the marketing equivalent of running up to people and slapping them in the face. If you have never seen a commercial or an advert created by Paddy Power, open Google search right now, and immediately type in ‘Blind football’, ‘Chav tranquilizer’, ‘Jesus cleans up football’ or Paddy Power’s banned ad called ‘Transvestites’.

Now that you got to know the most controversial betting site on the internet, you’ll get to know it on the inside and what it can offer you too. Many sports markets await from futsal to sailing and anything in-between.

Paddy Power is a security conscious bookmaker with a chain of retail outlets throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Ireland. Immediately form the very onset Paddy Power took a unique and unconventional approach in marketing and delivering its services. Its meteoric rise can be attributed to the Paddy Power formula of success that has kept the company on the top for nearly three decades. At one moment in 2010, Paddy Power was the only bookmaker with an iPhone app in the App store.


The pioneering spirit that has remained in Paddy Power even to this day is characterised not only by marketing whims, but by bonus promotions too. Paddy Power is considered one of the earliest and best money-back special bookmakers. Thanks to PP and to the delight of the bettors, this has been copied all over the industry by other bookmakers. Even right now there are money-back specials at Paddy Power for a variety of sports.

But, let’s talk about the welcome bonus offer that Paddy Power offers to new players. At the moment Paddy Power runs a risk free bet offer for new players whose first bet was lost. Depending on where you live, the size of the bonus will be different. In general, you’ll get between £10 and £20 bonus. You can find the details at Paddy Power’s website. With this deal, if your first-ever bet was lost, you’ll get a refund in the form of a bonus. Of course, this offer may change in the future considering the turbulent nature of this bookmaker.

After that, you can become a VIPP club member (yes, that’s to ‘P’, it’s not a typo), where you will get weekly £10 bets for any sport and many other privileges.

You can also take part in the Acca Insurance promotion, where 5+ fold accumulator bets are refunded if lost by just one selection. This promotion applies to football competitions like the Premier League and the lower tiers, as well as other different European competitions from Spain, Italy, and Germany and so on. Watch out for new time limited promotions that usually are active as part of some event.


Being the home of sports betting for thousands of online bettors, Paddy Power offers all the major sporting events, as well as all the minor and lesser known ones. You can bet on the World Cup in football, horse racing, golf, cricket, FA Cup, big European and PGA Tour events, US Masters, US Open, Ryder Cup, Ashes series

There are dedicated football betting pages for football maniacs that like to have hundreds of football markets at disposal for their betting daily needs. 2018 will be a year of the football World Cup, and I can only imagine all the specials there will be at Paddy Power.

Horse racing fans will be more than happy here. If there is something that the operators of Paddy Power love more than football, then it is horse racing. Bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Aintree, or other races across the UK, Ireland and the world.

As for the odds, Paddy Power is one of the biggest factors out there. You can find PP’s odds at almost any website on the internet where odds from reputable bookmakers are compared for the purpose of knowing where the money is. It’s a very competitive bookie in terms of odds and you will surely find your combination.

There are also live in-play odds. I got to say it’s not the best looking live betting platform that I have seen online, but it does the job. And like it or not, Paddy Power is sticking with it.
