Paddy Power Sports Review


Paddy Power is Ireland's largest independent bookmaker. They differ among their competition with humorous, often edgy and innovative content, and quirky betting markets. They have always prided themselves on being a bookmaker that will take bets of any type, on any event around the world.

Their risk managers will often accommodate price requests over the phone on obscure events not offered across the website. UK and Isle of Man customers are registered with Power Leisure Bookmakers Limited. Customers from outside the UK & Isle of Man, are registered with Paddy Power Isle of Man Limited.


Paddy Power's sports offering is powered by OpenBet, an industry juggernaut in the world of online-bookmaker software. Like all other Paddy Power online offerings, their sportsbook has crisp and attractive graphics. Quick load times and simple page transitions are just a couple of the stellar features expected with an Openbet powered site.

User Experience

Paddy Power Sports has simple navigation that drives players to a host of betting opportunities from the home page. Paddy Power also offers a helpful ‘Bet Calculator’, which allows players to calculate possible payouts across a variety of multiple betting options.

However, their marketing banners occasionally take up too much space and mask many of the advertised betting markets that are pushed ‘below the line’ of the homepage. Paddy Power Mobile's application has launched successfully across Android, iPhone, and iPad.

Odds and Prices

When checking out the current markets, players will notice odds highlighted blue and red at times; the red highlight means the price is shortening while the blue highlight indicates the price is lengthening. Paddy Power isn't heralded for their odds as some exchanges are but they do certainly offer competitive odds that hold well next to any other top bookmakers.

Betting Options

Paddy Power’s main focus is horse racing and football. They offer up to 100 markets on any single Premiership match.

The fun element of their brand is seen in their extensive novelty markets. These markets range from predicting the name of Beyonce’s first child to selecting the next Archibishop of Canterbury. Paddy Power really is THE media and entertainment bookmaker, and all site text is made as fun and informal as possible to support this message.

Paddy Power also accepts bigger bets online than most of their competitors. Most online bookmakers refer high staking online customers to their call centre.

In-Play Focus

Paddy Power has a live betting section focused around events covered on terrestrial UK and Irish TV and also Sky Sports 1, 2, 3 and 4. This is in line with Paddy Power’s tight focus on the British and Irish sports betting player.


Paddy Power offer a £20 free bet upon registration. This is the only ‘sign up’ promotion in the industry where the new player is given more than their initial bet (bet £10 with Paddy Power, get £20).

They are also famous for their weekly "Money-Back Specials", where Paddy Power refunds money on an event if your bet loses and another incident takes place. For example, one of Paddy Power’s biggest payouts was in the Champions League Final of 2008. Paddy Power said that if Ronaldo had scored, then they would refund all first goalscorer, correct score and scorecast single bets on the match. Of course, Ronaldo scored and Paddy Power ended up paying £1.2 million back to their players.

Our Verdict

Ireland's largest independent bookmaker didn't earn that title by providing a less than stellar online-offering. Punters looking to enjoy all that a topnotch online-bookmaker has to offer look no further the trusted Paddy Power Sports.

 media and entertainment bookmaker narrow focus on UK market
 fun, current promotions concentration on football and horse racing
 professional, informed customer support banners give homepage cluttered feel
