Ever since the company was first founded in 1988, Paddy Power is a bookmaker that has not been afraid to push the boundaries in terms of what can be offered to customers and perhaps more notoriously, in how they choose to advertise the fact. Some of Paddy Power’s stunts are now legendary and the bookie has never been afraid to court controversy via its media stunts and twitter service in particular.
Based in Ireland and registered in the Isle of Man, Paddy Power is a site that is predominantly used by punters based in the UK and Ireland and if you can access Paddy Power from another country, then you will often find that the promotional items and offers are firmly aimed at UK and Irish punters. The site is available across the full range of computers and mobile devices although the website is somewhat more user-friendly than the mobile app.
Paddy Power offers a number of decent value starter promotions across its range of sites and these are detailed below, together with information on any promotional codes you may need in order to claim the offer in full:
Paddy Power Sports betting site have become synonymous with their famous Money Back Special offers that the company offers regularly across a wide range of different sports and sporting events. However, there is a lot more to the site than simply one gimmicky promotional item. The company offers an outstanding range of betting opportunities, particularly on horse racing, golf, tennis and football.
Being an Irish-based bookmaker, the site is also very strong on offering sports betting on many Irish sports events and the site also offers bets on some sports that can be hard to find on other providers, such as Athletics, Crossfit Games and Equestrian.

For every £10 wagered with Paddy Power, you can earn 1 Casino Club point and over time, you can accrue these points and move up the Loyalty Ladder, unlocking different levels of rewards and other promotional items as you climb through the different levels. Reach the sixth level and you will enter the VIP Level, which offers you a number of benefits over and above what you would receive on any of the levels below.
At any point on any level, you can trade in your accumulated Casino Club points for cash, with the minimum claim being 100 points.
New customers get a fantastic €20 worth of bonuses, plus a fantastic Matched Deposit bonus which could be worth up to €200 when they sign up at Paddy Power Poker. It is worth noting that unlike the betting and casino sites, which operate in British pounds, Poker’s chief currency is the Euro and when you pay to play poker, your pound balance will be converted to euros to pay for the game.
Paddy Power poker is home to several different kinds of poker with Texas Hold’em being by far the most popular, although it is not the only variant of the game available as the list below shows:
Paddy Power is home to the popular Twister Poker game, where you can play against two other opponents for a cash prize of between 2x and 1,000x your stated buy in. The site is also running a Twister Race promotion, which is rewarding players with points for playing in these games and players can earn cash and other prizes for finishing as high up the leaderboard as possible.
Paddy Power Poker revamped their VIP Loyalty Scheme recently and they are offering players the chance to climb through six levels each month to earn cash bonuses and entry into freeroll events. The further you climb up the VIP Levels, the fewer points you need to redeem for each €1.
Each month players will start at the first level once again and progress through the Levels to earn increasing rewards.
Paddy Power’s website and app services are excellent and have been designed well, although I do feel that using the sites via a website is considerably easier than using an app. That said, the apps provided are still easy to use, it is just the website is particularly well designed and easy for even new customers to navigate to where they want.

Although the site was first conceived when three Irish bookmakers came together to launch an online betting service, Paddy Power has grown markedly since then. It remains hugely popular in the UK and Ireland in particular, with a limited service available in some parts of the globe and only basic language support.
That said, in terms of its sites, Paddy Power offers plenty of top quality betting and casino gaming opportunities in particular. Its Poker site isn’t quite so well developed but it is improving considerably and it does offer strong support for players wanting to play via mobile. This is a top quality site and it has a very strong new player offer to support it, regardless of which Paddy Power site you sign up with.
