Paddy Power Sports Betting Review

This may not come as a surprise but Paddy Power sports betting is one of the most popular available.  Their sense of humour and eye catching marketing is what divides them from the competition. A responsive and personal service gives their customers a sense of being part of the Paddy Power family. So why do we at Place a Bet Online rate them so highly?

Paddy Power offer a wide array of sports betting markets, as well as a full games and casino package.  Their website and mobile app has improved immensely over the past year or so, with speed being a major factor to their development.  They introduced PP Messenger last year and this too is an innovative addition, where you can place a bet by sending a message on their app.  It’s literally that simple, so you don’t have to trawl their mobile app to find the right event, they will do the hard work for you.

Paddy Power Sports Betting Promotions

We have been members of Paddy Power for many years and it’s their promotions that have kept us loyal. Every now and again we find a loyalty bet in the account, which is substantially more than most betting companies.  This along with their regular and big event promotions makes them one of the most rewarding betting sites.

Horse Racing at Paddy Power

Paddy Power is very good with their horse racing markets, especially over in Ireland.  They are usually the first company to offer prices on Irish racing, their odds are usually very fair.  We have used Paddy Power’s initial market prices in the past, usually to gauge how a horse is really expected to go. We prefer this to the Racing Post website and the likes, as those prices that are low are sometimes low for a reason.

The infamous Paddy Power cash out option is also available on horse racing markets.

Social Media

If you are not already signed up to Paddy Powers’ Facebook and Twitter accounts I suggest you do so immediately. Their humorous take on events have always given us a giggle, a light hearted take on politics is especially hilarious.  A must have for all punters!

Customer Support

If you require assistance for any reason, you can access a representative 24/7 via telephone, email, web message, post or live chat.

We generally use email when requesting prices or querying a market, finding them to be the quickest betting company to get back to us. Not just that, they are usually the highest price too.  It is very rare you get turned down on a specific event that isn’t advertised on their website, or for a horse that is yet to be put in the betting at Cheltenham for instance.

We’ve also used their Live Chat system, it’s a fantastic tool where the representatives feel like friends.  Paddy aren’t just robots reading from a script, but someone who actually is interested in your needs.

Banking Methods

Paddy Power Sports accept all the usual depositing methods, which include Credit and Debit Cards, Neteller, PayPal and Skrill.

Did you know you can actually use Neteller to make Boku and Bitcoin deposits at Paddy Power?
