Paddy Power sister sites 2023
Strictly speaking, there are no Paddy Power sister sites. This is the only iGaming site operated by PPB GE Limited in the eyes of the UK Gambling Commission, and so no Paddy Power sister sites exist. There are other ways of looking at it, though. One way would be to say that all the various sub-divisions of Paddy Power like Paddy Power Bingo and Paddy Power Games are Paddy Power sister sites in their own right. You could say that Betfair is a Paddy Power sister site, because Betfair and Paddy Power merged in 2016. You could even call Sky Vegas a Paddy Power sister site, because both brands exist under the Flutter Entertainment Limited banner. It’s all quite complicated, but we’ll stick with the basic answer for the purposes of being correct.

Paddy Power operator – PPB GE Limited
We know that we’ve just effectively said that Paddy Power is a PPB GE Limited site, but it isn’t really. Nobody knows the company by that name. It’s been Paddy Power ever since it was founded by David Power, John Corcoran and Stewart Kenny in 1988 as a chain of physical betting shops in its native Ireland. Right from the outset, the company was aggressive about expansion. The novelty bets that it offered then (and still offers now) brought the chain plenty of publicity, and the company bought up almost every chain of rival bookmakers in Ireland and England that presented it with the opportunity to do so. As the world of gambling changed around it, Paddy Power moved the centre of its online business to Malta to take advantage of the favourable operating conditions there. The biggest thing that ever happened to Paddy Power to date, though, was its merger with rival sports betting giant Betfair in 2016. That’s what the “PPB” in “PPB GE Limited” stands for – but again, it’s not what the company is known as now.
The newly merged Paddy Power and Betfair became a new entity called Flutter Entertainment, and the Paddy Power expansion model continues to be followed to the nth degree. Such is the size of this titanic iGaming monolith that it now owns not only Paddy Power and Betfair but also Tombola Bingo and the entire Sky Betting and Gaming portfolio, including Sky Bet and Sky Vegas. FanDuel and PokerStars are also Flutter Entertainment brands. We’re not saying this is the biggest sports betting company in the world, but its massive green hat is very much in the ring for that particular title. With thousands of employees in offices all over the globe, Flutter Entertainment plc enjoys global revenue of approximately £7.6bn per year.

Paddy Power Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
When you consider the degree of fame that Paddy Power enjoys and the enormous amount of money that it makes, it’s a little surprising that there’s only one welcome promotion for sports bettors on the Paddy Power website – and you can’t have it if you win anything with your first bet. The promotion is as simple as simple could be; join Paddy Power, get £10, and get the £10 back as a free bet if the bet turns out not to be a winner. Win that bet, though, and you get no welcome promotion whatsoever. For such a massive brand, it smacks of being tight-fisted.
On the other hand, the Paddy Power website is enormous, and there’s a lot more to it than the sportsbook. If you’re joining this famous site for its casino rather than anything to do with what it’s really known for, there’s a no-deposit welcome promotion of fifty free spins plus an offer of a further one hundred free spins when players make their first £10 deposit within the Paddy Power Casino. There’s no mention of a wagering requirement on the banner that promotes the offer, so we’ll assume that none exists on the grounds that if there is one, it really ought to be visible.
There are more strings to the Paddy Power bow. There are so many Paddy Power minisites that they could almost be considered Paddy Power sister sites in their own right; not just Paddy Power Casino but also Paddy Power Bingo and Paddy Power Poker. New bingo players can claim a £40 bonus for £10 upon registering, and there’s £20 up for grabs for new poker players. Weirdly, it feels like sports bettors get the short end of the promotional stick at Paddy Power despite it supposedly being the site’s bread and butter.
Just as there are different welcome promotions at each of the Paddy Power sister sites (that’s how we’ll refer to them from now on for the sake of convenience), there are also separate ongoing promotions at each of them, too. Given the plethora of offers and the fact that each has its own unique terms and conditions, we suggest that all players should read carefully before accepting any of the bonuses that the green iGaming brand offers. For the overwhelming majority of players who come to Paddy Power, though, the top bonuses available at the site are those that come as part of Paddy’s Rewards Club.
Members of Paddy’s Rewards Club are promised a new set of rewards every week so long as they remain members. These rewards will largely arrive in the form of a £10 free bet or a “Power Up.” The former is easy to understand, but the latter is a little more esoteric. They can be used to enhance the potential of any sports bet and are valid for use in both the pre-play and in-play environment. The value of the power-up changes from reward to reward, but they can only be played with stakes of £50 or below. Further to this, Paddy’s Rewards Club may occasionally offer players tickets to special live events or other physical goods, which aren’t guaranteed but could turn up at any time. Different versions of Paddy’s Rewards Club are available in the Paddy Power Casino, but the value of those rewards largely remains the same.
As a final note on promotions at Paddy Power, there’s also Paddy’s Wonder Wheel to consider. It’s exclusive to the casino, but it can be spun by every player free of charge once per day, offering small allocations of free spins or the occasional pot of bonus cash.
Top Games at Paddy Power
Paddy Power might focus on sports betting, but such is the size of the Paddy Power Casino that it would be remiss to skip over it in this review. It contains plenty of quality games and is enjoyed by thousands of players every day. Here are the top three slots that those players have been enjoying inside Paddy Power Casino recently.
Crabbin’ For Cash: Extra Big Catch: Have Reel Kingdom’s fishing-themed slots gone too far? That’s not for us to say, but we think their names are getting a little bit ridiculous now. This April 2023 is the newest kid on the block and was ranked number one at Paddy Power at the time of our visit. Cash rewards can be upgraded through symbol collection in free spins, and there’s a progressive jackpot up for grabs, but the lack of a wild symbol in the base game limits the slot’s potential if features aren’t triggered. RTP is 95%, with slightly above-average volatility.
Emperor of Rome: Mega Fire Blaze: Someone at Paddy Power Casino must really love slots with unnecessarily long names. This ancient Rome-themed slots game is a March 2023 release and comes from Rarestone Gaming. The presence of “Mega Fire Blaze” in its name tells you virtually everything you need to know about it, but it’s a little surprising to see a slots game in this genre come in with an RTP as low as 94.91%. The graphics are below par for a modern release, too. With average volatility and no especially original features, we can’t help but wonder how long the popularity of this one is likely to endure for once its newness has worn off.
Wild Celebrity Bus Megaways: The first remarkable thing about Wild Celebrity Bus Megaways is that it comes from Pragmatic Play, a provider which isn’t exactly known for being too experimental when it comes to the design of its slots. The second remarkable thing about it is that despite having “celebrity” in its name, there aren’t any celebrities in it. In that respect, it’s like an ITV2 panel show. The absurd premise of this slot is that players are on a bus tour around London looking for celebs, with the bus serving as the grid and all the windows on it serving as reel positions. Sticky scatters during respins boost the slot’s potential, and avalanche wins can push multipliers as high as x50 during free spins. Volatility is off the charts, though, and RTP is 95.5%.
It should be noted and underlined that the “Paddy’s Favourites” section of the Paddy Power website leans strongly in favour of brand-new releases, with old favourites pushed much further down the page. As a result, what you see when you arrive on the homepage of Paddy Power Casino for the first time will likely look very different from what we saw when we showed up to write this review.
Customer Support and Licensing
Astonishingly for a brand this size, Paddy Power doesn’t list a telephone number for customer support on its website. There isn’t an email address to contact, either. The only form of customer service provided is live chat, and there’s a bot to get past before you can speak to a real person. Customers are entitled to expect far better. Paddy Power is covered by the UK Gambling Commission licence awarded to PPB GE Limited under account number 52819 in 2018. The operator has no fines or other disciplinary actions on file with the UKGC.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
You have to do some digging through the sprawling FAQ section at Paddy Power to get a full list of withdrawal options, but the information is there if you look hard enough. There are plenty of options, too. The primary method is and always will be debit cards, for which the turnaround is 2-5 working days unless you have a Visa Direct card, in which case you might get your money instantly. Apple Pay withdrawals will always take 2-3 working days. If you have a PayPal, Skrill or Neteller e-wallet, you should get your money within 1-4 hours. It takes up to 24 hours with MuchBetter, which is also an e-wallet. The fastest method of all, though, is to find a PaddyPower shop, where you can have your money as a transfer or as cash instantly.
Final Thoughts on Paddy Power
This is one of the biggest gambling companies of them all, and it largely fits the bill as such. All the various forms of iGaming are catered to on its website, and there are some nice promotions to go with them. Instant withdrawals are possible if you have the right withdrawal method, and that’s always a positive. We were a little shocked by the low standard of customer support available, though, and that’s something Paddy Power ought to improve upon.
Paddy Power Sister Sites Player Reviews
Here are the thoughts of your fellow players about Paddy Power. The reviews are all real, but we’ve paraphrased them to keep them brief.
This company has become a joke, whether we’re talking about the website or the shops. They close any account that makes money from them. Donald, April 26th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
Scam artists. The moment you start beating them, they’ll kick you out. Not to be trusted. Claire, April 25th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
I’m only giving them one star because Trustpilot makes me; I’d rather give them none at all. What a shambles. I had a winner on a photo finish, but Paddy Power has marked it a loser, and Luke on the chat service gave me a load of old waffle about the reasons why. It’s all bull.Terry, April 25th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
Go to a bookies shop and play with real cash; it’ll be far less stressful than playing here. I won £50 on a £10 bet, having deposited through Apple Pay. I’ve tried to get the money back out so many times, but it never works, so I just gave up on it.Brian, April 20th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
Everything about Paddy Power is disgraceful. The tasteless publicity stunts, the cynical way they go about their business, the bad manners you get on customer support, and the general incompetence. These are the worst traits for any company to have.Patrick, April 19th 2023. Source – Trustpilot.
