There is something really bad with paddy security team. I made deposit by mastercard and got my account blocked, because I needed to verify my age. Ok I sent copy of ID and a screenshot of online banking with my address and I was able to play again. Later I tried to make withdrawal, but you can't withdraw to mastercard, so I was asked to send bank statement (again) , ok I sent it and afterwards got confirmation I requested withdraw to bank account. After almost a week I received email that my withdrawal was canceled and I needed to send them copy of ID and bank statement... I contacted online support and informed them I already did it twice, so he said sorry and requested withdrawal again. Now I tried to make second withdrawal and guess what? Yes, you're right I got my account suspended and asked the same documents again, except screenshot was not good anymore, so I asked in my bank for paper copy, and sent it. So now third day with no answer. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY.

Paddy Power along with Bet365 tout themselves as the leading sportsbookies in the world but it's true only for losing bettors. These two bookies along with many other books don't like long term winning bettors. I make most of my bets in Pinnacle but joined Bet365 and Paddy Power after hearing good things about them. I was limited at both accounts after playing less than 2 months and profiting just under $25k. If you exclusively bet the 10 unit picks from "betting resource" in these two bookies they will limit you before your account profits $25k. Avoid this bookie if you are a long term winner.

For me - This company would never be allowed to play cards at my Poker Table. I believe in Honest Gambling - They are a dishonest house. I placed a bet on a golfer to win the Open. When I went to collect there was nothing. When I queried it - They said that they knew that I had tried to place the bet but that their site had failed to process it. I had bet £20 @ 20's - They refused to pay. They have no honest ethic. They use a good Irish Name but are little more than a cheating online thief.

+: I use PP in outright/long term bets, because I find here the highest odd. I'm sure they offer a lot of free bets.

-: Although they give a lot of bonuses, a lot available just in UK, moreover the customer service is very low. I hate the crazy bets (Elvis lives and similar... ).

Accepted initial payment of £5 which is required to get so called 'free' £35 (which you don't get straight away).. But decided to wait till I had used initial deposit to tell me that there was a problem, (I used husband's paypal and 1st names didn't match) then suspended my account and offered to refund remaining balance of 1p... If there was a problem.. Initial payment should have not been accepted.. This company is a joke... Avoid!

Typical Irish bookmaker which offers a lot of horse racing and, of course, English football. Paddypower has built up a good reputation through the years. A friendly customer service and fast and secure payouts. They often bring in extra free bets with big horse races. For the UK player it's a bookmaker you must have met. Try it out!

Well, they will limit you right before you take 2 ore 3 bets in 10 or 20 EUR and after that when you want to withdraw, they tell you that they have sent your money and give you a transaction code which its a false one because when you try to verify it with skrill it doesn't exist. So basically that's just stealing.

Placed two £25 win bets on two horses running on consecutive days. First lost. Second won at 3/1 so up overall £50. Tried to bet a horse a few days later £25 to win and the maximum bet they would accept was £9. 37. They shouldn't be allowed to have online betting. They are a disgrace.

I placed 20. 00 on a horse @ 3/1 and I made 60. 00 profit. Once I won, I was then limited to around 5. 00 euro stakes on some horses. I am not permitted to place more than 0. 70 on some of the other bets on their site. Pathetic! Of course, Paddy Power wants to keep tight fists on their 130 million euro annual profits at all costs!!! They have millionaires to protect. My little itty-bitty stakes might eat into their gigantic profits!! Tossers!

If you want to get paid on a winning bet and the odds you did the bet and want good customer care, stay well clear of Paddy Power. I did a £25 bet at 5/2 and when it won, they only paid me 4/7. When I contacted them, they said they price was an error and they wouldn't pay me out. It wasn't my fault they made a mistake, if I made mistake placing the bet would they pay me out?? Obviously not. So I risked £25 of my money on a bet at 4/7 which I definitely wouldn't have done if the price they had on their website was 4/7. They just quoted me rules which really meant they didn't care and I just closed my account. I can't understand how they can accept my bet and then not pay me out. Terrible service and it's a waste of time trying to explain to their customer service team because they simply don't care.

I am user of Paddypower since 2005. Money back special offer, competition last man standing and early prices are perfect on market, I like paddypower blog where there is useful information about betting. I like paddypower Tv where there are matches to watch online and what I like is betting over under live. Paddypower paid money if teams reached for example over 2,5 in 28 minutes. So I do not need to wait to the end of the match.

I have opened an account for several years. Two years ago, in one day, I had three winning ticket - single. After that, they limited the payment, as well as the maximum of 30 Euros. The explanation was: You are the winning player. While I was losing money, everything was OK. Supporting players is OK, payments also. Not for big players.

Paddy Power refused to give me bonus. But I still created an account there because of their odds being higher than betfair. So, there was a chance for me to back @ pp and lay @ betfair. In last 1 month, I have a made a total profit of $28 doing nothing. I made these by back @ pp and lay @ betfair. Easy profit and absolutely no risk.

Very good bookie overall, only real downfall is their lack competitive odds on football markets, prices are consistently lower than hills, 365 and ladbrokes but they do offer lots of exclusive markets on the major events and very easy to withdraw from by using either a debit card or over the counter cash in their shops. Easy ID verification also.

This is more of a major paddy bookie, as regards UK there is a shop in Southampton and one in Chelsea I know of but all the rest I know are in Ireland. Mind you they have effectually gone global by opening a website. If you fancy a flutter on the Gidges, they will give you good odds and make you feel welcome. When you win there, the adrenalin really gets flowing.

Pretty poor. On initial joining everything seems good. Site is pretty easy to navigate through and generally a wide range of bets is available. Then you start using the site and their bet in play is slow. Paying out into your betting account takes ages so you can't easily bet and rebet winnings. They also offer soccer bets up to a specific minute of the game but then don't honour the win by bumping or rounding up the time of the goal? Scored in the 14th minute 15 seconds but class that as a 15th minute goal? I wouldn't use them if asked honestly. They don't seem terribly honest.

Absolutely wonderful little betting outfit who really do some fantastic odds on both British and Irish Horse races, most days of the year! Watching your horse come in when it wins is truly exhilarating experience, that will make you feel on top of the world, especially when it comes in a 10 to 1 or better with at least £10 on the race. This bookie has shops throughout Ireland and a few in the UK as well.

When I first visited Ireland, I spent an afternoon in one of their betting shops in the Kildare area of Ireland and found this particular shop to have all the cheerful atmosphere and craic of your local irish pub, friendly punters and staff alike. A punter gave me a longshot tip off, I put a fiver on for fun and it came in at 20 1, I bought the guy a few guinesses for his recommendation and being as I've never been back to them and lost the money back to them, I remain eternally grateful to this paddy and the shop for paying me out no problems and no fuss. I have since considered opening an account, and found the staff friendly and helpful when I went to do so. Well I've got the account, but just didn't deposit thinking, well I've made all the profit I'm ever going to make out them, lets leave it like that. One dislike though is they won't accept moneybookers if you do want to make a deposit and then get a bonus, they'll accept it if you don't want the bonus, but that's no good if you do. Another dislike is that betting online doesn't have the same craic and fun as doing it live from an irish betting shop.

Now this bookie could have had 5 points from me, I absolutely love their friendly irish staff, the paddies are really good friendly people and so are the staff they employ, the odds are good, their payout times are good. There is some security, but it is limited to just a quick copy of your passport and card used to fund your account and that's it, job done. Paid out OK no problems, even when they made a loss to themselves and nice profit for me. But one fundamental thing lets them down, everything's fine for a few weeks, even if you do a bit of arbing, then they limit you and that kinda spoils things, that's my only dislike, but it overrides their good points, as I did some arbing with them.

I like their big variety of selectable sport events (we can bet on badminton or waterpolo too) though they offer not the best odds. They are one of the best regarding horse racing. Their support team is really outstanding and well-trained, so I could fix my issues in a short time. I also like their low minimum deposit amount (€5) and of course the well-known ’money-back specials’. Regarding the payments they’re correct with quick withdrawal time. They’re very weak in terms of available languages or currencies and could do better to satisfy their users. I can’t say I’m a big fan of their platform. I think it could be a bit better organized one. 6 out of 10.

I always considered PaddyPower like a "crazy" bookie (in a good way). They are really different than any other bookie, they try to be original, they have many unique sections of the website and I can say without any hesitation that PaddyPower has the best possible promotions when it comes to money back specials. Every week you find new money back specials for soccer, tennis, horse racing, golf and many other sports. Most of the bookies offer money back specials only for football or UK racing, but PaddyPower tries to cover more sports and satisfy all the customers. They offer a welcome bonus but only for UK & Irish (too bad). The odds are above average and the huge betting offer can make happy any bettor. There are events from absolutely all sports. You can bet on power play (I don't even know what this is, but probably there are enough customers who do know), rink hockey, lotteries, politics, novelty, ten pin bowling, netball, fishing, (you can bet on fishing?!? I didn't even know that this is possible) chess etc. PaddyPower really has an amazing offer. They have good support, fast payouts, excellent and useful sections, blog, commentary, news, statistics, videos, calculator, results and they are very active on youtube and facebook! What I don't like is that they don't accept all the credit/debit cards. For example, I've tried to deposit with a credit card which I used at over 20 online bookies, but Paddypower didn't accept it (don't know why). You must know that after you deposit they request your documents (pretty weird because most of the bookies verify the account at the first withdrawal). Some friends even told me that they had their account blocked after registering, more exactly they opened an account, they deposited and were blocked immediately. Their accounts were unblocked only after they've send the documents. Anyway, the point is that PaddyPower rules! 10+ bookie. I recommend you to open an account.

One of the largest British companies in the gambling business. Paddy Power appeared in 1988 in Ireland, and so far it is the largest bookmaker in the country. Great odds, bonus offers for the matches of the Premier League and rugby, especially when teams from England and Ireland are playing (where the majority of their customers comes from), offer bets on TV shows such as "Big Brother", "X-Factor", "Eurovision".

For such a large organisation who do a lot of tv and radio advertising, they should do some work on their website. Very difficult to work around quickly. Missed many bets because it is painfully cumbersome. For some crazy reason they restrict some of my bets but not others, but at least they tell me the max I can place. They should get their act together because there are a lot of up and coming bookies who will take their business.
