About Paddy Power

We're certain you've heard of Paddy Power, as they've been around since 2000, but if you haven't, then you need to know that they're Irish and very, very cheeky with some of the most popular, funny and sometimes slightly offensive adverts of any online casino or gaming provider out there. Their social media streams alone are worth following for the steady supply of memes, jokes and everything else.

Promotions

There are a few promotions available at Paddy Power, although we wouldn't have minded seeing more variety to match with what they offer games-wise (more on that shortly). Paddy Power has a seasonal promotion on offer with some rather fun-looking prizes, and a game-specific promotion (which, as we understand it, changes frequently to be related to other games - slots, table and more).

Range of Games

Paddy Power features slots, roulette, blackjack and more

There are over 200 casino games alone to choose from, including all of the fan favourites. In fact, between the casino, poker, bingo and sports betting sites, we think anyone would have a grand old time at Paddy Power!

  • Slots: Paddy Power has these in abundance, with 120 to choose from. They're all separated into nifty little categories - 20+ lines, 1-15 lines, Branded, Bonuses, Slots Jackpots and Beginner. You’ll find everything you need, including Halloween Fortune, American Dad, The Matrix and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • Live dealer games: Live roulette, live blackjack and live baccarat. Yes, there’s not as much live casino variety as with other casinos - but what’s here works.
  • Roulette games: 12 different games, including some interesting looking variations: Age of the Gods: Roulette, Roulette Deluxe and Diamond Bet Roulette, among all the usual standard variations (European Roulette, etc.).
  • Blackjack: There are 8 variations to choose from, including original blackjack, blackjack single hand, Double Attack Blackjack and more.
  • Other table games: There are 9 ‘other’ table games too, including Sic Bo, craps and baccarat.

Paddy Power is available to play on desktop via a downloadable desktop client, has a dedicated mobile casino and - best of all - a very colourful app, available in both Google’s Play Store and the Apple App Store.

Other Offerings

Paddy Power is also known for its sports betting section

Paddy Power has a very highly-respected online sports betting section (the place where most of the infamous adverts and campaigns spring from), as well as solid bingo and poker sections, which are reputable and popular sites in their own right.

Software and Graphics

Part of Paddy Power’s charm stems from the wide variety of software providers it uses to power the site, leading to a mix of games which you wouldn't see elsewhere.

The software powering Paddy Power Casino includes:

  • Amaya
  • Blueprint Gaming
  • CryptoLogic
  • Electrade
  • Evolution Gaming
  • GamesOS
  • IGT/Wagerworks
  • OpenBet
  • Playtech

You'll notice that both Microgaming an NetEnt are missing from this list. This may cause alarm to some players, but is not necessarily a bad thing - their absence creates fresh opportunities for players to discover new games to play, ones which they might not have thought about previously.

The website itself is - showing its Irish pride - green. The casino game options are displayed along the top of the screen in a navigation bar, with drop-down menus leading you to more specific games and areas of the site. There’s also a rather in-depth ‘Tips & Strategy’ section, which some aficionados might enjoy browsing.

Extra Value

Paddy Power's @paddypower Twitter account is a bit notorious

It’s a bit strange to say, but Paddy Power’s social media streams are hands-down the best part of the whole online gaming experience. The way their social media team interact with their fans is well worth signing up to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for.

VIP Programme

Join Paddy Power's Casino Club for VIP perks

Paddy Power’s VIP programme is - surprisingly for a casino - actually called a VIP programme, and it promises ‘the 5-star treatment’.

Here’s how it works:

  • Play casino games regularly to build your ‘Casino Club’ loyalty points. You need to build enough of these to reach level 5 - at which point you’ll become a true VIP member of Paddy Power.
  • Once you're near level 5, the VIP team will start sending you some exclusive cash bonuses and other promotions. Once you actually achieve eligibility for the VIP Club, you’ll be formally invited by the Paddy Power VIP Club Team.

VIP rewards include:

  • Daily promotions
  • More regular, higher value bonus cash
  • Casino Club points conversion at a 25% discount
  • Invitations to invite-only VIP events, tournaments and promotions
  • Special gifts seasonally, on your birthday and more
  • Access to a dedicated VIP customer service team

Customer Support

There’s a super in-depth mini-site for help and support at Paddy Power, subdivided into every category imaginable.

The FAQ is very well laid out and easy to navigate, often answering the questions you’d like to ask, but didn't want to get in touch about!

If, however, you do wish to get in touch, there are a few ways to do it: there’s a UK landline available, live chat support and an email address - as well as the casino's infamous Facebook and Twitter accounts. The phone line and live support are 24/7. Currently, support is only available in English. The chat response, when we tried it, was answered within 25 seconds.

Who Can Play?

Paddy Power operates internationally; however, they exclude players residing in countries based in:

  • Africa
  • South America
  • The Middle East
  • Some European countries (Serbia, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Estonia, France, Germany)
  • Canada
  • United States

The casino supports play in English only.

Bottom Line

Overall, there’s a clear reason why Paddy Power is one of the UK’s favourite online gambling sites - it's because everything about it just works, and provides a fabulous overall casino experience. Yes, there are no Microgaming or NetEnt games to choose from, but this isn't a bad thing. In fact, giving Paddy Power a go might just make you appreciate the finer side of all things online gaming - and not just in online casino, either!
