Paddy Power, the largest bookmaker, was founded in 1988 in Ireland. It has more than 400 outlets in the United Kingdom. The bookmaker is licensed in the Isle of Man. The official website has only two language versions: English and Spanish. The bookmaker merged with Betfair in February 2016 to form Flutter Entertainment.

The company’s ambassadors include legendary Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho and former England footballer Peter Crouch. Paddy Power’s other ambassadors include Rodrigue Giggs, the brother of England legend Ryan Giggs, who has appeared in one of the bookmaker’s provocative commercials.

The company is a sponsor of football clubs Motherwell, Newport and Southend United. Huddersfield had previously partnered with the bookmaker, but the partnership agreement expired after the end of the 2019/20 season.

Among Paddy Power’s key strengths, we would mention the huge number of events in the line-up, the variety of marquees in the betting spreads, online match broadcasts and flashy promotions – worth the million paid out to punters who bet on the famous Tiger Woods’ golf victory after the third round of competition, who then lost before reaching the final. Or the promise of planting trees for every non-championship season of Arsenal London, which the bookmaker is holy to fulfil. What also stands out is the extensive statistical service with match results and the prompt handling of payments.

Selection of bets

Every day Paddy Power’s main lineup features several thousand matches in different sports from football to archery. The widest line is in football – more than 1000 games daily. The best spreadsheet for betting is also provided in football, basketball, hockey and tennis – there are main events among outcomes, totals and handicaps as well as extra marquees. Paddy Power has the majority of positions in the list of top matches for all sports – for football about 400-500 events, in hockey 200-300 positions, in basketball about 150, etc.

Paddy Power provides voluminous amplitudes for betting on totals and handicaps. Combined margins and exclusive bets are also available. The bookmaker also accepts bets on social events such as the Oscar awards, stopping the pandemic coronavirus in the world, media personality fights and presidential elections in different countries. A good line is available for eSports events – this includes Virtual Sports, CS:Go, League of Legends, Dota 2 and other disciplines. In pre-match, players of the service can make a bet without waiting, the coupon is processed instantly.


In play, the betting mix varies from sport to sport. The number of events available for betting increases in hockey, tennis, baseball and basketball, in football the betting in top matches becomes narrower, and in lower rated matches it increases. On average in football the number of available markets reaches 200-300 in top games, in other sports it rarely exceeds 150 events.

Placing a single bet in Live will take around 5-10 seconds. If a player makes a parlay online, it may take longer, up to 20 seconds. The bookmaker works with odds not always promptly, which allows customers of the website to place bets on the most favourable terms.

Minimum and maximum bets

The minimum denomination for a bet at Paddy Power is €0.1. The bookmaker has no restrictions on the maximum – they are calculated individually according to the sports and popularity of the event. The maximum withdrawal amount is 5000 euros per day.
