Paddy Power Review

Famous for their irreverent humour and comedy-laced advertising campaigns, the strength of Paddy Power betting sometimes goes under the radar. A bookie that offers odds on a fantastic range of sports and events, there’s something for most bettors at Paddy Power.

It would be a shame to underestimate Paddy Power. Many serious bettors write them off due to the quirky nature of their promotions and adverts, but still Paddy reigns amongst the most popular sportsbooks in the UK and beyond.

In addition to their range of Outright betting options and pre-match odds, Paddy Power offer a good live betting service. All of this is available through the Paddy Power app, which can easily be downloaded on Android and iOS devices.

Live streaming is also available to you on both the desktop site and with Paddy Power mobile. We’ll examine how you can view live sports from your betting account shortly.

Like a bit of casino action? Alongside the Paddy Power app for sports betting, you can download their dedicated casino app too.

Paddy Power Sports

What sports can you bet on at Paddy Power? To put it bluntly, loads. There’s in excess of 30 different sports and events with odds attached. The list ranges from the popular football, tennis, cricket and horse racing to current affairs, politics, novelty markets and virtual sports.

Paddy Power

While the list of sports is extensive, it’s with football and horse racing where Paddy Power excel. There are thousands of odds offered on these two sports weekly, with bonus opportunities and promotions offered in abundance.

ESports is gaining popularity in the betting world, and at Paddy Power you can bet on major international events both pre-game and in-play. All odds available on the desktop site are also available using the Paddy Power app.

Paddy Power App

The Paddy Power mobile app is one of the most popular in the United Kingdom. As we discussed earlier, there are Paddy Power apps for their online casino, but we’re going to focus on the sports betting app for now.

The Paddy Power app gives you full access to your betting account. You’re no longer chained to the desktop or requiring visits to the high street to place your Paddy Power bets. This app allows you to bet anytime, anywhere.

It’s extremely user-friendly and it’s easy to navigate through the site. You can make deposits and withdrawals, bet in-play and watch live streams all from your mobile device.

Not interested in the Paddy Power app? You can still play at Paddy Power mobile by accessing the site via your mobile browser.

The simplest way to download the Paddy Power mobile app is to head to the site on your mobile device. Follow the links provided to download the app on your Apple device here or Android operating system here.

The app is available for new and existing customers. If you’ve not created an account here yet, you can do so through the Paddy Power mobile app.

Paddy Power Payment Options

Paddy Power provide plenty of deposit and withdrawal options. Card, eWallet and bank transfers are all accepted, along with a number of other methods.

Terms to each method can vary. For example, minimum and maximum deposit limits can differ from option to option. It’s a good idea to check the small print before you attempt a funds transfer.

So, what payment methods are available to you? See the list below for all current options:

  • Debit Card
  • Credit Card
  • eWallet
  • Bank Transfer
  • Cash Card
  • Paysafecard
  • Bank Wire

Paddy Power Live Betting And Streaming

Paddy Power’s in-play betting markets is a huge attraction. There is an extensive range of odds and markets under their live betting umbrella, covering a number of sports and events.

What can you bet on with Paddy Power in-play? It’s probably easier to say what you can’t. Football, tennis, basketball, cricket, the list goes on. It’s easy to place in-play bets too, whether on the desktop site or with Paddy Power mobile.

So, we like Paddy’s live betting options, and we like their live streaming service even more. There’s a comprehensive number of sports you can watch live from your betting account. This list includes:

  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Horse Racing
  • Basketball

To access a live stream at Paddy Power, you need to have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the previous 24 hours. This applies to all live streams, except for horse racing.

If you want to watch a racing stream, get betting. A minimum bet of £1 is required to access the stream of your race, and you need to place that bet after 09:30 the day of the meet.

Paddy Power Customer Support

You have a range of customer support options if you ever run into any problems. There is also an FAQ section you can use. This FAQ section, though, is our only disappointment with Paddy Power. We typed in general queries into the search box and were presented with completely unrelated articles, making it difficult to find the information we wanted.

Nevertheless, customer contact seems to work well. You can message the team via their Live Chat service, or telephone customer support.

If you’re social media-savvy, why not try the Twitter page? There’s a specific Paddy Power Help page you can contact. As you’d expect from the social media giants, the Twitter page gets pretty hectic, so you might be waiting a while for a response.

Paddy Power: Verdict

Paddy Power are hardly shy about what they offer, so it’s likely you’re already aware of what’s available here. It’s not all talk, though, and Paddy are rightly renowned as one of the best bookmakers in the UK and beyond.

Placing sports bets here is a breeze, whether you use the desktop site or the Paddy Power app. Paddy Power mobile betting is one of the best we’ve tried, with simple betting processes and access to live streams.

Finally, we encourage you to play responsibly. If there are any concerns about what that means, you can always find out more regarding responsible online gaming here.

Erratic performance

Using paddy power on an iPhone and iPad, has to be the most incredibly frustrating experience possible. There seems to be erratic errors that resulted in the game spinning indefinitely, which meant that to continue I had to close the game, there by loosing any small winnings I had gained, or worse still, the game just crashed mid spin, again requiring me to close the game and loose any winnings.

I do not think that the issue was my devices or the software that I have installed as I am always maintaining my devices with the most up to date software and this was the first thing that I checked when I first started to experience problems with the game and it’s interface.

Other than that, when the game did work, the probably of making any return on the money being fed into the ‘machine’ seem impossibly low.

It certainly felt less likely to get any return back on the stake than the 1:4 odds that was quoted.

Other aspects of the paddy power offerings didn’t seem to cause as much difficulty, but in truth my desire to feed more credit into a gaming stage that readily accepted the money in, but when it came to chancing that money against the set odds, plus what seemed inevitable game failure, hanging ups and crashing, I must admit that the combined odds against any success were too much for me to consider throwing good money in after bad.

Sign up and deposit were thankfully easy - that has to be the only positive. I don’t consider myself much of a gambler and I can’t say that this experience would do anything to change this.

Easy to join and easy to navigate.

Signing up to paddy power was simple and quick.
No fuss and a comforting option to limit what you spend daily.
Depositing was easy and adding bank account was simple and within minutes my bonus was added.
The odds are current and easily displayed in an easy read format and the markets were full and varied. A good range of current programme outcomes to bet in too.
Customer support is on hand and immediate especially if you use live chat, it is efficient and the staff are pleasant.
There is a good supply of games and bingo rooms and these are easy to navigate to and from.
Rules and instructions are well displayed and easy to follow and the graphics are the best I’ve seen on a betting app.
I played bingo a few times and the bingo rooms are well thought out and easy to switch from room to room, the games to play in between are also very easy to find and on winning in the these rooms my winnings were paid quickly and without drama.
From all the betting sites I have used paddy power is by far the stand out and I continue to use it for that reason.

Good customer service

Compared to other sites, had a straight forward experience when registering and qualifying for my free bets. When I had some issues with this, customer service were quick to get back to me on the online chat to resolve my problem.
On many betting sites, I found the interface difficult to navigate and was often unable to find the events I was looking for. I also struggled to change the odds from fractional to decimal place, which is my preferred metric. On Paddy Power I had no issues with this.
Also, Paddy Power were very quick to verify my identity once I had submitted the required documents via their interface, which was much easier to use than some other sites I have used. This prevented issues with withdrawing my winnings that I faced on other sites.
When one of my bets won, it was easy to withdraw my winnings and the money was in my account within a couple of days.
I am yet to try the mobile website but I have faith that it will be as easy to use as the main website.
I will happily use Paddy Power again in the future for all my gambling needs.

Great Easy-to-Use App

The Paddy Power app makes it really easy to find whatever it is you’re wanting to place a bet on. In particular, it makes it really simple to create same game multipliers on your virtual betting slip. All you have to do is add the individual bets and it automatically offers you another option being the accumulator. Depositing cash is really quick to do using your banking provider with a minimum deposit of £5. They offered a great incentive first time deal which I took and they usually have great offers on accumulators at weekends which make it easy to have a chance to win big off a small bet. Cashing out is easy to do and the money was transferred to my account soon after. I’ve found that they often offer good odds on top flight football and offer lots of different aspects to bet on such as things to happen in the 1st, 2nd 3rd minute etc. Scorecast is a good way to make an accumulator if you can guess the score and the first goal scorer. Often the odds on this are good. I have had no issues with paddy power and so haven’t needed to contact the customer services at any point however they offer 24/7 advice. The app is really great and I would recommend using it to keep up to date on the best in match odds they are offering.

There are better bookies out there

The sign up process on the play betting app was very simple, normal process with id verifations etc. Number of markets available to the customers are decent but the odds values aren't too great, mostly feeling like they're staked against you. Depositing money to your account was pretty easy but took a while to show up. Trying to withdraw funds was a nightmare and the customer service was appalling. Also, their reload offers are significantly poorer than with other bookmakers. The live chat wasn't working the way it should've and getting someone of the other end of the phone was an ordeal. I also found the customer service agent really rude and unhelpful overall.
