Summary:
Great bookmaker that covers all needs of the modern punters but only if they are based in Ireland or the United Kingdom.
paddy-power-website.png The first thing you will notice when visit Paddy Power is website design with the colours of the Irish flag, green, orange and white. It is the top bookmaker from Ireland that has a good share of the UK market as well. Paddy Power Betfair plc is listed on both the Irish and London Stock Exchanges so that's all we gonna say about reliability. To legally organise betting in UK it is regulated by the UK's Gambling Commission but Malta Gaming Authority is responsible for international players. In addition, they are also one of the rare bookmakers that have managed to acquire AAMS license and now can accept players from the Italy.
This bookmaker accepts bets in a large number of sports but as they are a bit UK centred the focus is on horse racing and football. It covers all major horse racing events in the United Kingdom and Ireland with different kinds of bets accepted such as win, each way, forecast, tricast and jockey's championships that cover the entire season. In football, bets are accepted on English, Irish, European and International events. The common bets for individual matches are win/draw/lose and correct score. The common bets for the complete tournaments are the winner, finalist and the player who scores the most goals in the tournament.
Live betting is accepted in the majority of covered sports and bets can also be placed using your mobile phone. Like that is not enough at Paddy Power you can place a bet by phone call or text message that can come handy when there is no internet connection. You can pick telephone numbers for dial bets in the next part of this review.
Paddy Power offers three free bets of £10 to new players, but only a small selection of countries is eligible for them. In order to use the free bet, the new player should first put his selection on the bet slip. If the free bet is applicable to this selected bet the drop down menu asking the player to select it will automatically appear on the bet slip. If the drop down menu does not appear then it cannot be used on the selected wager. After selecting the free bet the player should click the Bet Now button on the slip in order to place it.
From time to time, Paddy Power informs players regarding promotional offers who have requested such information by e-mail. As they are famous for their novelty bets and money back special you should ensure that the e-mail address given is correct and current.

You can withdraw your money using the same methods listed above and one of the big advantages is that there are no deposit or withdrawal fees.
In overall, if you are living in the Ireland or the United Kingdom this is the place where you want to bet. Otherwise, you can forget to participate in the majority of promotions and unfortunately you also won't be able to watch live streaming of sports events.

Affiliate program Paddy Partners is the name of their official affiliate program. In affiliate industry, their program is not so popular and some webmasters will even call it a rogue one. The reason for this is that don't pay a commission for single player across all products. Their revenue share is in the range of 25–40% and it depends on total net revenue you generated that month. Another bad thing is that cookie duration is below all standards and it is valid only for the time of the single session. In other words, if your referred player determines to close the browser and open it in a few minutes again to complete a registration, he won't be registered as your referral.
