Information about bookmaker

Bookmaker company got promoted on hype. In 2008, “Paddy Power” offered bettors to bet on the murder of Barack Obama. The bookmaker’s TV advertisement, in which the “blind” football players kicked the cat, also received a resonance. Aggressive marketing tactics have led to the opening of 300 PPPs in five years. BK’s ground service owes its popularity.

Despite the “immoral” marketing tactics, the bookmaker is engaged in charity work, participates in the development of children’s and Paralympic sports and fights for the environment.

The target audience of BC Paddy Power is clients from the UK, but bettors from other countries can register on the site. The BC administration does not provide any assistance in bypassing the locks. There are no BC mirrors, bettors can bypass the restrictions on their own using a VPN or other third-party services. As a game currency, you can choose only in pounds or euros.



The bookmaker has repeatedly featured in scandals due to non-payment of jackpots. This happened more often due to the carelessness of the bookmaker’s employees. The company is rarely accused of freezing or delaying payments, much more often – of deliberately returning rates.

Bookmaker reserves the right to return the bet amount in case of errors in quotes. Also, the bookmaker was accused of setting maximum bet limits for successful bettors. True, the size of the limit is not comparable to that used by many other bookmakers. Even in scandalous situations, the bookmaker did not ignore customers, but negotiated and sought a compromise.

The official website of the “Paddy Power” bookmaker is made in green and white. Green underpants with white stripes, which also often appear on the main resource of the company, have become the unofficial symbol of BK. A portal with an intuitive interface, so even beginners will find their bearings and find the game section of interest. The site is available exclusively in English.

In addition to the bookmaker’s line, Paddy Power offers interactive casino services: slots, poker, roulette and live dealer games.

Line and odds Bookmaker

Paddy Power does not offer an extensive line. Often the bookmaker focuses only on the top events of the championships, and provides a meager list of less popular events. The situation changed slightly after the merger with Betfair, but the problem remained.

BC presents the following sports disciplines in detail:

  • football;
  • basketball;
  • hockey;
  • volleyball;
  • tennis.

The list differs from the offers of Russian bookmakers: there is no Asian handicap, bets on statistics are limited, a double chance is given only for single events. The strong point of the bookmaker is the section with the LIVE line. Paddy Power is a top betting service for events from the world of politics, culture, high-profile lawsuits and even animal life. (the bookmaker accepted bets on the extinction of polar bears and judges’ decisions in high-profile criminal cases).

Deposit and withdrawal of funds

Bettors can replenish their gaming account with plastic bank cards Visa or MasterCard and through electronic payment services Neteller, Skrill and PayPall. Top-ups can be made in any currency, but funds are automatically converted into either euros or pounds (at the client’s discretion) at the bookmaker’s internal rate, which differs from the bank rate. The minimum amount for a deposit is 5 euros. Conclusion – through the same methods, but you can only withdraw from 10 euros. The receipt of funds will have to be expected within two to three days.

Before the first withdrawal of the winnings, the bookmaker will require documents to confirm the identity of the player. Users from Russia have no problems with verification.
