Paddy Power have a fantastic new customer offer, arguably the very best out there currently. They’re doing money back in cash up to £30 for all new customers. This means that when you join, you can stake up to £30 on your first bet. If it wins, they’ll pay you out in cash, if it loses they’ll simply refund your stake in cash. You could even withdraw that cash again straight away.
So, an example: If you were to sign up to Paddy Power and stake £30 on a 10/1 shot as your first bet and it won, they would pay you £330 in cash. If the bet were to lose, they would simply give you your £30 back in cash. Not in free bets or anything like that, it’s available to be withdrawn.
You can join Paddy Power by downloading their app and signing up through there or you can sign up through their website. You can download their app through the app store or google play. Once you’ve set an account you’ll need to do the normal verification process that you’d expect from any bookie.
They share sign up links through their social media too if you find it easier to go through that route to getting an account.
PaddyPower take a variety of payment methods. They accept Mastercard, Visa, Visa Electron, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and not too long ago they also enabled Apple Pay which is a really convenient addition to the app. You can type your stake directly in to the bet you want to place and then use the funds prompt to deposit that exact amount via Apple Pay.
They also have the Paddy Power rewards club which you can opt in to, which I’d highly recommend doing as there’s no drawback to doing so. You can earn yourself free bets every week and also the access to frequent ‘power ups’ this is where you can slightly boost the odds of a bet that you’re placing.
Another thing Paddy Power have a great array of is specials, they come in the form of their ‘Power Prices’ and ‘#WhatOddsPaddy’.
The Power Prices are updated every day. For football it’ll often be combinations of different teams to win at boosted odds. Or they often offer excellent boosts such as ‘Over 1.5 goals in every League Two match’ for example, which was boosted up to 25/1 this weekend. On weekend’s there can be hundreds of Power Prices and there are always some really tempting options with really solid boosts.
#WhatOddsPaddy can cover a number of different things, such as season outrights. They’re offering a huge number of different combinations for The Premier League ahead of its upcoming return. They also offer #WhatOddsPaddy bets on individual games, particularly big games like cup finals or televised matches. You can actually tweet PaddyPower using that hashtag and make a request, they’ll then forward it on to their traders and get back to you.
Many people favour certain bookies down to the coverage they have of certain sports, how extensive the markets are and what they can access in-play too. This is of course, particularly applicable to football. It can be frustrating trying to access certain leagues and markets that you’re confident in that are maybe more obscure, many bookies won’t cover lower divisions in some countries; and even if they do they often offer very few markets, sometimes just final results only.
Paddy have a very strong coverage of games right across Europe and at the bare minimum they tend to have result markets, goals, both teams to score, half/minute and the option to pick out a same game multi. They also carry a lot of markets over in to their in-play section, such as first half goals and match goals even for lower ranked competitions. You’ll also find that a lot of the games have a live graphic and the stats are updated in real time, which can really help if you’re eyeing up an in-play flutter.
The easiest way to locate a fixture you’re looking for is to click ‘football’ and then ‘tournaments’. The most popular are located at the top, with sections for UK, European and all tournaments. Just select whichever it is you’re looking for and it’ll list all the games available; they’re normally quite far ahead at getting priced up for matches which is always a bonus.
Paddy Power has a simple and easy to use interface, particularly once you know where everything is. It becomes very simple to locate the sports, fixtures and markets that you are looking for.
By navigating using the left and top menu’s you have access to a huge number of sporting fixtures, outright bets, virtual games and specials. Your bet slip and cash out options appear in the top right just below your balance, free bets and power ups. They also have a set of ‘quick links’ where you can access certain specials, stats and results from football and horse racing primarily.
The home page is tailored around horse racing and football, the current/upcoming races lead the top of the page with the odds displayed right away which is ideal if you’re looking to access a quick bet before a race starts. The football then follows on below with a selected list of matches from the day, if you want full lists of either sport then you just need to select them from the menu on the left hand side.
