PaddyPower is one of the biggest gambling companies in the UK and Ireland. Trading on its Irish roots, it has retail shops throughout the UK and Ireland as well as a massive online presence. The business is centred around having a fast, easy to use, betting app, that allows the user to play with PaddyPower quickly and easily.
That, coupled with the thriving retail empire, means that they have been able to cement themselves as one of the key players in the gambling industry. With them, you can bet on a vast number of sports, play casino and other online games such as slots, and they also run games of Bingo and online Poker tournaments. They are easy to use and make it simple to have from the beginning.
PaddyPower offer a ‘risk-free first bet’ on their website that allows you to place a bet of £10 and if your bet loses, then they will return your £10 in cash. It is simple to use and just requires you to sign up for the site and make a deposit of at least £10 with them.
Then when you make your first ever bet on a sporting event, it will be covered by their bonus offer. This means that if the bet is settled as a loser, then you will get £10 returned in cash, usually within one hour of the result being determined. This makes for a great starter offer for new players as it allows them to sample without losing any money. Terms and Conditions, of course, apply to the offer, but they are all clearly spelt out on the site, and you should ensure that you read through them all before you proceed.
The main welcome offer is the one detailed above that allows you to have a risk free first bet. There are also other welcome offers in each of the different areas offered by PaddyPower. So if you want Casino games, then there is an offer that lets you deposit £10 only, and then gamble with up to £50 as it gives you a 400% bonus for your casino games.
Again terms and conditions apply to this offer, so make sure that you read up on the details before you sign on the dotted line. There are other offers in other areas, so for example in Bingo you can similarly pay £10 and play with £50, but you also get 20 free spins, so this makes it a great offer. There are similar offers in the PaddyPower Live Casino, and PaddyPower Poker areas, so it is just a matter of finding what is right for you.
With such a variety of sign-up bonuses on offer, it is easy to choose one that is right for you. Each section of the website has it’s offers presented front and centre, making it easy for you to pick the one that is right for you. The links for the offers will take you to the relevant page that helps you sign up for your account and make your initial deposit. It will also detail out the all-important terms and conditions, so make sure you read them as you go along in order to get your bonus.
PaddyPower will accept your money in a variety of different ways, with most of them resulting in your account being credited immediately. They will of course take credit and debit cards, with cards like Visa, Switch, Mastercard and Entropay all being accepted. You can pay cash into your account through one of the retail stored. There are also various online options such as through PayPal, Skrill or Neteller.
You can even use ApplePay to make a deposit. The only non-instant option they have is to use a bank transfer which can take anywhere from 1-5 working days to hit your account. So no matter how you want to get your money to them, you are sure to be accommodated.
With your winnings, again you have a number of options to make the withdrawal and pretty much all the options that you had to deposit monies you can use to collect your winnings. You can have the money refunded to your debit card. Though this generally takes between two and three days for the funds to hit your account.
If you use an online service, then the money is deposited much quicker normally between one and four hours for a service like PayPal. Again having the money transferred into your bank account via bank transfer will take the longest time, with estimates in the region of one day to five working days. So it is important to ensure you pick the right method for you.
PaddyPower offers a number of specialist bets, these can be found under the ‘TV Specials’ option on their website. These have bets such as on Love Island or the Eurovision Song Contest. They also run other more novelty specials. Such as, at the time of writing, they have a special for Trump to be pictured eating a mighty mac by the end of 2019. So you will be able to find something to bet on.
PaddyPower takes responsible betting seriously and have teamed up with a number of partners to help those who have problems with gambling. They partner with agencies like GamStop and WhenTheFunStopsStop to make sure people aren’t having problems while gambling.
When it comes to live streaming PaddyPower offers a few live streaming services to their customers. Most notably, they provide live streaming of the NBA games, so this is a great way to watch if your TV package doesn’t offer you the opportunity to see these games.
They are also offering live streaming of the Cricket World Cup. As well as other sports throughout the year depending on what is being played. As well as the sports, they offer live streaming casino games, which show live videos of the dealers and croupiers as they are placing your bets and dealing or spinning the wheel.

PaddyPower offer a great deal of odd’s specials on a number of their sports bets, in particular when it comes to horse racing. They even have a facility for making a request for a particular special if the race you want and the horse you want doesn’t currently have it, so I am sure you will find the best price.
