About Paddy Power
Paddy Power was founded in 1988 by the merger of the 40 shops of three Irish bookmakers: Stewart Kenny, David Power and John Corcoran. Kenny was CEO until 2002 and Power’s son, Paddy, remains the company’s spokesman. Floated on the UK stock-market in December 2000, the company grew rapidly operating 195 shops by 2005. Their current Paddy Power estate is just shy of 600 shops.
Paddy Power have delivered some amazing offers and concessions down the years. They have frequently championed ‘fair play’ and are notorious for refunding losing bets when they sense an injustice. For example, in July 2010, the Paddy Power online betting took the unusual step of refunding bets placed on Felipe Massa to win the Germany Grand Prix, following a “team orders” incident, which led to Fernando Alonso being allowed to win the race.
Back in 2003 Paddy Power famously paid punters who backed Arsenal in the 2002-03 Premiership early. They were forced to pay out again when Manchester United nailed their rivals on the line. Away from Paddy Power Sports, Paddy Power new account offers in their Bingo and Poker rooms are extremely generous and the range of games they offer there and in their online Casino are outstanding. Incidentally, Paddy Power Casino offers all new customers a potential £300 bonus after joining/playing, that is in addition to a Paddy Power New Player Bonus. If you are totally new to Paddy Power Casino, a free £5 bonus will be credited to your balance as soon as you open an account and ‘opt-in’ on the promotions page.
For enquiries, bet queries, etc., Paddy Power has a 24/7 Live Chat facility on their web site, or you can contact Paddy Power’s via their phone lines which are also open 24/7.
