PaddyPower Sportsbook review

Paddy Power is an Irish bookmaker founded in Dublin, Ireland. The onsite sportsbook was formed in 1988 by the merger of the 40 shops of three Irish bookmakers: Stewart Kenny, David Power, and John Corcoran. The company conducts business through a chain of licensed betting shops in Ireland and the United Kingdom, and by operating Ireland's largest telephone betting service. On the internet, it offers sports betting, online poker, online bingo, online casino games, and spread betting. It merged with Betfair to create Paddy Power Betfair on 2 February 2016.

Paddy Power has been online since 2001 and is currently licensed in Isle of Man. David Power's son, whose name happens to be Paddy Power, is a marketing spokesman for the company.

Paddy Power offers many markets to bet on, and actually more than 30 sports, from football to sailing and e-Sports.

Paddy Power is also popular with his great offers of best odds guaranteed for horse racing and greyhounds. You will find the most of them on the left-hand side of the menu in their website. In addition to the sportsbook, Paddy Power has online and live casino, poker rooms, lotteries, bingo and virtual games.

Would not be fair if we do not observe into a bit more details their in-play betting opportunities. Paddy Power provides great range of sport events and betting markets. The online bookmakers will also allow you to live stream a range of sport events that will make betting even more entertaining.

The bookmaker also offers its new customers a nice bonus of 30 GBP. As new users all punters can also expect to receive regular money back offers as well as free bets on a regular basis. These offers combined with the variety of betting events and markets make Paddy Power to be among the preferred choices for occasional players. However as we always try to be as honest as we can in our reviews we would not recommend Paddy Power to professional punters who want to bet with large stakes or punters who want apply arbitrage strategies.

The other very best part of Paddy Power is the design of their website. The website of this online sportsbook offers one of the most impressive designs in the field, and you will get used to it very quickly. They also support a separate mobile client, so anyone can bet even on the way.


No different from all of the online bookmakers, there are pros and cons to use Paddy Power sportsbook. We have done our research and summarized the good to know stuff for Paddy Power.
