Paddypower Sportsbook Review

Since emerging on the UK high street and online, Paddy Power has been renowned for its unique promotions and humorous marketing campaigns. Originally from Ireland, the multichannel gambling operator is now a cornerstone of football betting in the UK. A quality desktop betting website is enhanced by the presence of mobile and live football betting.


The clear option that sticks out is the deal to claim £20 back in cash if you’re first bet loses. Unlike many free bet offers this is a cash return, rather than a free bet return.

Unlike other free bet offers there is no odds restriction on this offer. Just as long as you’re a new customer and meet the other terms and conditions* listed below and in more detail on the paddypower website you can claim this deal.

Football Betting Coverage

In total, Paddy Power covers a total of 51 football competitions from throughout the world to cover clubs and international teams. Punters can find competitive odds for all of their favourite European competitions as well as more obscure games from Slovakia, the Ukraine, and others. When backing games, Paddy Power has a whopping 80 coupons to back.

Moving on to the in-game markets, Paddy Power arranges these by Win-Draw-Win, Half-Time Result, Double Chance, Half-Time/Full-Time, 1st Half Over/Under 2.5 Goals, Scorecast, Handicap Betting, Draw No Bet, and Both Teams to Score. Within each of those markets, you can find a multitude of betting options. A number of those markets will also give you the option to cash out early for less winnings if your bet is currently winning.

The Live Betting tab is where you can find current and upcoming football matches for today. A really useful feature is that a tab is providing for focusing entirely on football, as opposed to considering tennis and other sports for in-play betting. In live betting, it is possible to back games from as far afield as Bahrain and Iran.

To be a mobile app punter, you need a device powered by Android or Apple. For anything else, you will have to make do with accessing Paddy Power from within your mobile web browser. The Irish football betting site only provides mobile apps for Android and Apple, both of which can be downloaded from the mobile section.

Customer Support

For any pressing customer support issues, do not hesitate to call Paddy Power on 08000 565 275. In terms of speed, Paddy Power claims to have an average response time of 21 seconds. Alternatively, you can visit the help centre instead. This contains a list of the most common help questions and the answers to the problem. Live help is another speedy option for seeking assistance, while it can take just over two hours to receive an email reply.


Paddy Power has a pretty good welcome deal for new players. So, from the outset, new players should be pleased about joining the site. In terms of odds and markets, the site also excels. And for the modern punter, live betting and mobile betting make Paddy Power a complete site for football punters.
