If football is your game, and the chances are it probably is, then heading on over to Paddy Power football betting is one of the best choices you’re going to make. Our Paddy Power bookmaker review would not be complete without are review of their football betting markets.
We always strive to be as honest and transparent as possible when it comes to what betting markets are best for your needs and we can wholeheartedly say that their football betting markets are top notch.
So what makes it so special? As soon as you land at Paddy’s football section you’ll see a football only navigation box at the top of the page, with quick links to ‘what’s hot’, special offers, specific team pages, football coupons, top bets, promotions, and the list goes on.
The one feature that we particularly enjoy at Paddy football betting is the option to customise the page to the team that you support. You can select from a huge range of teams, from the Premier League all the way down to the English conference, as well as La Liga, Bundesliga, Scottish and international teams (plus lots more). Once you select your supported team they’ll give you popular markets and best prices for upcoming fixtures as well as recent results and useful stats, all quickly accessible on the main football page.
Other features that you may like here are the the huge range of special offers and coupons that are seemingly changing all the time, at the time of writing there were free in-play bet offers and a huge range of managerial specials that you can have some fun betting on. Our tip is to check out their coupons sections where you can create some interesting looking bets, such as putting all the favourites in to one big bet (these coupons are subject to change at any time).
If for some reason there’s no football being played then fear not as Paddy Power football betting is also available on virtual games, you can find it lower down the page and play for real-money.
No bookmaker review would be complete without taking a close look at their horse racing markets.
bettingexpert's resident horse racing expert Stephen Harris is seemingly quite a fan of Paddy's horse racing markets and offers, especially the free bet offers. He talks exclusively about what you can expect at the online bookmaker.
"Paddy betting have been one of the most dramatic success stories in bookmaking over the past decade, combining excellent marketing with some top notch offers for recreational punters. They have pioneered free bets, cashback and enhanced places on normal run of the mill racing, and frequently break the mould by refunding bets when a horse has refused to race or does not take up an engagement."
"The match bets offered up in every UK race every day also offer some great value to the more astute. On a negative note, Paddy can be quick to restrict and limit anyone who regularly beats the market, but for the smaller player who may like a bet on televised, good quality horse racing, then there’s no doubt that they lead the way for racing betting".

Guaranteed Prices On All UK And Irish Racing
Paddy offer Guaranteed Prices on all UK & Irish Horse Racing. So if you take a price on a horse and the Starting Price is bigger, Paddy will pay you out at the better odds.
It would be remiss of us to overlook this great mobile app in our Paddy bookmaker review. The mobile app is the perfect betting app to download if you're someone always on-the-go! They have produced one of the best looking and most efficient apps that i've downloaded and tested. It's clean, easy to use and is designed with easy navigation in mind for its on-the-go customers.
You can download it via the main site, via the iTunes or Google Play store. Make sure to keep an eye on the cool navigation bar at the bottom of the Paddy Power mobile app screen where you can keep updated with the latest promotional offers available readily to you.
To learn more, read our detailed guide to the Paddy mobile app.
The Paddy live streaming service can be accessed by clicking on a tab called ‘Watch Live’. If you’ve tried out live streaming services on sites like bet365 and Betfair Sports in the past then you’ll be happy to know that the size of the stream screen here appear to be a little bigger than the others.
When we tested out a random sport stream, which happened to be snooker, it was approximately around 8 seconds behind ‘real time’ images. Although this may be a little picky on our part, we felt that the quality of the image sometimes suffered by breaking up a couple of times and it did freeze once (to solve this just press refresh on the stream).
In terms of access, PaddyPower is a lot like other bookmakers in the fact that they require you have credit in your account to be able to access the live streaming service. Furthermore, no bets need to be placed in order to watch the likes of cricket and tennis, but for horse racing a minimum of £1 must be wagered before you can enjoy a race.
As we’ve pointed out in our best bookmakers for live streaming section you can even enjoy multi-screen streaming at PaddyPower, which means you can enjoy two different games at the same time in different browser windows! You’ll soon be creating your own sports command centre from the enjoyment of your own screen here!
To learn more, read our detailed guide to Paddy live streaming.
Here you'll be able to check on the status of all your Cash Out bets, which is available on both singles and accumulators wherever you see the Cash Out logo. With Cash Out you no longer have to wait for your bet to finish to pocket your profit. Just choose the bet you want to Cash Out and you'll be paid that amount regardless of the outcome of the event.
You can Cash Out with Paddy on desktop, your fancy phone and your snazzy tablet.
- Paddy live betting rules apply on all live bets where Cash Out is available.
- Cash Out is not available on bets where a free bet has been used.
- Partial Cash Out is only on single bets.
We can’t forget to mention their cash out on feature on a huge range of sport markets, including tennis, football and golf. If you need help finding the available Paddy Power cash out markets then look out for a little symbol beside it (this shouldn’t be too hard to spot).
You can cash out on singles and accumulators. However, There are currently a number of factors which can lead to the cash out option being suspended and temporarily unavailable for a bet. The cash out option can be suspended if any relevant market is also suspended from any game in your accumulator. There would also be a number of other trading and technical factors that can contribute to the option being temporarily unavailable.
If for any reason you need help finding current Paddy cash out markets then look out for a little symbol beside it (this shouldn’t be too hard to spot).

A really nice tool on-offer is the free bet calculator that you can use as your ‘go to’ for all your sports betting needs. If you’re planning on an accumulator bet this is a fantastic tool to organise and plan by inserting the odds (either fractional or decimal) into the Paddy Bet Calculator and getting a returns total, by inserting how much you want to wager.
There’s a football specific accumulator calculator or a general version (which would suit horse racing punters), giving you options to select on a win, loss, draw, place, non-runner/runner etc.
We’d even go as far as suggesting that this is a stand-alone tool that could be used at anytime, wherever you have chosen to bet - make sure you check it out and get a complete overview of your wagers and potential returns in a few simple clicks.
What can I say about the customer services provided at Paddy other than it's an all-round, friendly service. With all the bases covered in regards to email, telephone, live chat as well as a comprehensive help section.
The full site is clearly designed from top to bottom with areas indicating where you can get customer assistance, so there's no need to stress in looking for where to go. For those wishing to call them from the UK (it's free) then dial: 08000 565 275, or if you're overseas call: 00353 1 9050131.
Alternatively, if you don't want to reach out them in the conventional methods on-site, then you use their dedicated Twitter page for those looking for advice and help - this isn't the same as their main Twitter page but instead search for @AskPaddyPower.
We'll credit them on how quick they are to respond to their customers Tweets, and ultimately if you're on the go and have the app installed, this is probably the best way to get nice clear answers from the bookmaker.
There’s very little doubt that Paddy Power has made quite the impact on Twitter, often courting headlines for their sometimes controversial and humorous posts.

This ‘go bold or go home’ unorthodox approach from Paddy betting has given them one of the biggest followings amongst all of the online bookmakers, currently over half a million strong. If the humour and controversial tweets aren’t appealing to you, then if you filter through you can certainly find some attractive special offers and enhanced prices, announced live on their timeline - so it’s definitely worth checking in, especially during live matches.
Although we can say, that we do have a particularly guilty pleasure for their satirical approach and crossover campaigns that ultimately do prove to be extremely popular with their online following. Their irreverent humour doesn't just end with sport either, no-one is safe from Paddy's ironic stunts...
This is a great place for your betting needs, the money back specials and early payouts offer something you don't get at every bookmaker and their innovative marketing is backed up with reliability and security within their site structure.
Make sure to download the Paddy app while you're at it, so you're covered in every way possible, as you never know when you'll need to cash in on one of those famous Paddy specials.
