What do Paddy Power offer?
Paddy Power are regarded as one of the biggest bookmakers in Ireland and looking at their home page, it is easy to see why as they offer odds and markets across a range of sports and novelties, making it the only place to bet if you are looking for something a little bit different.
There is a full list of the sports they cover on the left-hand side of the page, which makes it easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for. To speed this process up even further, a quick links box above the A-Z features the most popular sports, including horse racing and football.
Not all bookmakers can claim to offer betting on everything from X Factor to Gaelic football, but that’s where Paddy Power differs from its competitors.
Taking football as an example, for a televised live game, there are often 125 more bets available than the standard match betting. This means that if you are unsure about who is going to win the game, you can place your money on another market such as both teams to score or number of corners.
Money back offers
Paddy Power are renowned for their money back offers, and they tend to be bold with these ahead of major sporting events. They are also quick to refund when they feel there has been an injustice to the punter.
Not only do Paddy Power offer ample money back specials, but they have also been known to pay out early on a selection if they feel the result is done and dusted. An example of this is Chelsea in the 2014/15 Premier League outright market. The firm paid out in November on the Blues despite there being another six months left in the campaign.
Live betting is very prominent on Paddy Power’s home page and it appears they allow users to bet in-play on a number of different sports. The firm also provides a free live streaming service on certain games/tournaments if you have placed a bet on that particular match.
Who to turn to for help?
If you are having problems with the website or any pending bets with Paddy Power, the firm has a live messenger service which can help you to resolve your problem. There is also the option to call and e-mail the company but the live help service will put you through to a member of their customer service team who will endeavour to answer your questions.
Before you do activate their live help service, it is worth looking through their frequently asked questions, though, as you may be able to find what you looking for in their help centre.
Banking made easy
Paddy Power allow you to deposit and withdraw funds into your account by debit card, credit card (Visa and Mastercard), bank transfers, Paypal, Ukash, cheque, Western Union, Neteller and Moneybookers. This is all done safely and securely but there is a minimum deposit amount of £/€5 across the majority of these payment methods.
Like most betting websites, Paddy Power state that withdrawals can take up to five working days to reach your account but card requests generally take 2-3 working days.
Betting on the go
To make betting easier when on the go, Paddy Power has an app which can be downloaded onto your mobile or tablet. This app is easy to use and helps you place a bet quickly from just a touch of a button on your phone.
Another feature that Paddy Power offers their customers as something different is a blog section, which features blogs from a range of different pundits, ex-players and jockeys, all talking about their specialist sport. This is a section which you can choose to use or ignore when it comes to making your selections.
