"Bet £10 Get £20 Free Bets"
Paddy Power is one of Ireland's biggest bookies with over 245 outlets throughout the UK and Ireland. The company was formed when three of Ireland's best known bookmakers merged in 1988 and the company is now so successful that it is listed on both the Irish and the London Stock Exchanges. In 2006 they had an annual turnover of 1.8 billion Euros, making them one of the top bookies in the UK.
Sports covered by Paddy Power
There are over 30 sports available to bet on including all the traditional favourites. These include horse racing and greyhound racing, football from around the world, golf, rugby, cricket, boxing and tennis. There is also a selection of American sports and a number of less popular sports such as futsal, chess, athletics, hockey and beach volleyball.
Paddy Power occasionally features a number of non-sporting events to bet on. These include poker tournaments such as the WSOP 2008 and political battles including the next US president, the next Irish president and the outcome of the next UK general election. You can also bet on the lotteries around the world and a selection of TV shows and novelty questions.
Bets accepted by Paddy Power
There are 21 types of bets that are accepted by the site. These include singles, doubles, trebles, patents, accumulators, Lucky 15, 31 and 63, Yankees and many more. The different types of bets are explained in the 'help' section of the site. Paddy Power also supports live betting as well as future betting so you can bet on a match or race while it is in progress.
Other areas of the Paddy Power website
There are a number of other features on the website in addition to sports betting. For example you can play a wide range of table games, slot machines and video poker games in the casino. Alternatively you can practice your poker before buying into one of the ongoing tournaments in the poker area. The site also has a fun games section, bingo and the lotteries as well. A new addition to the Paddy Power site is the financial trader area where you can learn the art of financial spread betting before playing the markets.
The gaming areas of the Paddy Power site offer competitive sign up bonuses and special offers. For example, you can claim up to £101 when you register in the casino depending on the amount you initially deposit. The sports betting area is different though as unique 'money back specials' are advertised instead of bonuses. So for example, if the greyhound you bet on comes second to another specific dog then you would get your stake money back, and so on. The specials change daily to include all of the markets. Accounts at Paddy Power can be funded using the major credit and debit cards, MoneyBookers, NetTeller, bank transfers and with personal cheques.
