Who is Paddy Power?
Although they’ve been in business since 1988 as a major Irish chain of brick-and-mortar bookies, you’re probably more aware of Paddy Power as the premier PR stuntmen of the sporting world. When Nicklas Bendtner scored his second goal against Portugal at Euro 2012, he lifted his shirt to reveal that he was wearing a pair of Paddy Power-sponsored underpants; in sartorial terms, only the national team replica shirts will have had more exposure in the whole tournament.
Paddy Power offers live betting on their website alongside live streaming of certain events. There’s also the usual mix of casino, poker and other online gaming.
How easy to use is their website?
As with most betting websites, the Quick Bet Slip option – in which a new slip comes up with all the details and stakes for the betting odds you’ve clicked on – is a welcome feature for those who have already done their research.
The handy list down the left hand side of the page also makes it easy to get to the market you’re looking for – with extensive listings for the bigger games and also more coverage for the seasonal stuff, such as the Superbowl during the winter.
A menu with the day’s live betting also appears on the right hand side of the screen for anyone who fancies a quick glance at what’s coming up.
Why bet with Paddy Power?
With all the special offers placed right on the homepage, Paddy Power isn’t afraid of offering some good deals – at the time of writing, it contains a declaration that Facebook users will be able to vote on a special to be offered during the weekend’s two biggest football matches, meaning they’re very responsive to socialising with fans too.
It’s features like this and the money-back offers on popular bets which makes Paddy Power one of the most engaging and prominent brands with whom to place your wager.
