About Paddy Power

Paddy Power are renowned for their sense of humour, mischief and money-back offers.  Despite now being a colossal bookmaking organisation they remain true to their roots with their reputation for fun and fair play as strong as ever.

Paddy Power was founded in 1988 by the merger of the 40 shops belonging to three Irish bookmakers: Stewart Kenny, David Power and John Corcoran.  The company grew quickly, floating on the London Stock Exchange in 2000 and operating 195 shops by 2005.

By which time Paddy Power had successfully launched online and a little-known fact is the market research conducted before the Irish company decided use their own name for their online activities.  The polls showed the vast majority of people questioned believed the term Paddy Power was either a paramilitary organisation or an Irish whiskey!  None of those questioned associated it with a bookmaking firm.

At the start of 2016 the Irish firm merged with Betfair which gave the combined companies over four million active online customers although both companies currently operate separately.

High-Street Presence?

Paddy Power opened their 600th shop in March 2016. Approximately 270 of which are in their native Ireland with the remainder in the UK.

As for Paddy Power free bets and offers, they have a long history of costing themselves millions in early pay-outs – such as 2003 when Paddy Power paid out early on Arsenal winning the Premier League title but Manchester United eventually became champions.  They also paid out punters who backed Tiger Woods in the 2009 PGA Championship when he was four shots clear of the field.  It was a mistake that cost them over £1.5 million.

Similarly Paddy Power are renowned for their impromptu ‘justice payments’ whereby they refund punter’s money when there is what they deem to be an unfair result.  This could be a horse that refuses to race or a boxing match where everyone barring the judges believe the declared result was a travesty.

Our Verdict – 9/10

It is extremely hard to fault Paddy Power albeit we do have a few reasons to nitpick meaning we are giving it a score of 9.

A few more deposit/withdraw methods would not go astray, particularly PaySafe which is becoming increasingly popular.  Similarly some markets, particularly the obscure ones, can be subject to restrictive bet limits.

On the considerable flip-side, you can bet directly into Tote pools, Paddy Power regularly offer industry leading prices and they price-up considerably more markets in more sports than their rivals.

The site is easy to use, but it is complimented with a straightforward ‘help centre’ and their customer service is both prompt thorough.
