Paddy Power online sportsbook is the online offering from Paddy Power Plc, one of the largest and most successful bookmaking brands in Europe. Widely known for its controversial advertisements and odds on controversial markets (such as the likelihood of President Obama’s assassination), Paddy Power is an online betting portal with personality. On the highstreet Paddy Power has a substantial presence of around 200 outlets and attracts millions of players every year, so we’re sure its online sports betting offering will be of a similar quality as the much loved highstreet business. If you’re looking to sign up to place bets with one of Europe’s most-loved and most recognisable bookmaking brands, look no further – Paddy Power is right up your street!
Placing your first bet with Paddy Power is a breeze, and also extremely enjoyable. Players can place bets on a wide range of sports including football, rugby, horseracing, greyhound racing, cricket, golf and many international sports and events. With so many odds offered on the widest possible spectrum of sports and events, it’s great to see the service also includes a fantastic “search bets” tool – letting users find odds on all games and events across the Paddy Power network in seconds (users can search by event, player, team, sport or venue).
As is common with online sportsbooks of all kinds, Paddy Power offers players a range of bonuses, promotions and special offers that either allow them to place bets at reduced cost (or even free) or improve odds on particular events. New players can enjoy a free bet of up to £50 depending on the amount they deposit when they join the service, and they can also enjoy a wide range of special offers and promotions throughout the course of their membership with Paddy Power. The service is particularly known for offering generous “manager’s specials” to coincide with ‘blockbuster’ sporting events such as the Grand National or FA Cup Final, so be sure to check these out if you do decide to join Paddy Power.
We also loved the fact that Paddy Power offers a range of additional features that, though not always necessary in online sportsbooks, help improve the overall user experience. Paddy Power users can enjoy live-betting to enjoy the additional excitement it brings and benefit from changes in odds, casino games, poker, bingo, lotteries and more – all with one Paddy Power account. Mobile betting is also available using iPhone, Android and Blackberry, while users can also dial-in their bet over the telephone if they can’t get to a phone or PC with an internet connection. This flexibility and focus on service is one of the things that really sets Paddy Power aside, making it one of our favourites in this category.
Although not quite making it into the upper reaches of our top ten in this category, Paddy Power comfortably takes the number 6 spot and we’re sure it will improve even further in coming months and years. If you’re excited by what’s on offer here and are looking to place bets with a solid, known-brand bookmaker, Paddy Power is a great choice.
