Lots of possible bets on popular betting markets Good amount of special bets Large range of other markets too (is wrestling fake?) Website & mobile apps are both easy to use The random free bet I receive is also welcome
My mum saves a few pounds each week to place a bet near Christmas t try and get some extra money for Christmas, On Nov 27th 2013 she placed a bet on the football and her 3 teams all won! Paddy Power refused to pay out her bet as She used my dads Paypal account which is in his name and her Paddy power account is in her name, The money came out of my Mums bank account though as her bank accounts linked to my dads paypal account, Mum offered to get a copy of her bank statement to prove the money came from her own bank account but Paddy Power did not want to know, My mums in her 80s and has cancer and she didn't realise using paypal would be a problem,Normally she has 2 bets a year one at grand national and one near Christmas,Never wins nothing but this bet was worth £650 pounds, I rang Paddy power up and they wernt interested, I suggested a little discretion in view of her age and condition and the fact she could prove the money came out of her own bank account but it all fell on deaf ears. Merry Christmas Mr Power !
Well man... see the new Paddy Power website? Yea its shit-hot! Especially after that internet crime that was the old one! You should join man! Its great. It won't make you much money, but its great craic. They have some good deals too, like money back specials and stuff... but sometimes they have really crap odds. But PP does have some advantages - you can deposit money in the shops to your online account so you don't have to attach your bank account which'll stop you from getting carried away if you're on a bad run. And you won't get shit from the bank if you go for a loan! Everyones a winner!
I use Paddy Power due to the convenient locations of its shops. Another big advantage is its MBS, a particular example would be the MBS for Sprinter Sacre at Cheltenham 2 years ago. While the odds may not be significantly better than competitors I feel a sense of allegiance to PP as a result of my past dealings. On a couple of occasions they have settled disputes favorably with me. Finally the easy to use coupons in shops are great for the weekend football
I find in general the staff in the shop are quite helpful but sometimes i feel that they lack a certain amount of knowledge on general matters for e.g cashback specials. I was informed by the member of staff in the shop that the andy murray Wimbledon special was bets placed up to a hundred euro in shop. Then when i went to collect, i was told it was online only. Apart from that particular experience in general, I always have a good experience whilst betting in shop
Great Bookies, never had a problem. Find the iphone app great to use on the go and also make use of the horse racing streaming. Great money back specials and free bets every so often. Will continue to use.
The overall experience is poor. Bad user interface on app. Use of confusing and complicated words to trick the customer. Technical issues make the whole use of their website and app frustrating and time wasting. I had my account randomly made inactive even after I had been using it the previous day. Having contacted paddy power myself, they said that for them to deal with me i needed to email in proof of ID, even after I had given all the required details eg. Password, name, security question answer, DOB. I have decided to close my account with them because of this. I don't recommend anyone is tricked into using them by their special football odds or fee bets.
