Paddy Power Casino
Paddy Power operate their website along
the same lines as the UK sportsbook operators do:
It’s a well-designed, highly
efficient production that has clearly had a lot of money put into it – though
it has to be said that the overall styling here is superior, following a total refit in 2013. The impressive gold-themed lobby and branded playing rooms are supplemented by a host of other extras including video tours and monitors to let you know how busy the tables are. Best of all, though, is Paddy's customer service: They still use genuine local contact centre staff , adding a healthy dose of helpful Irish Craic to the whole affair and
giving it that extra edge to distinguish it from its British competitors.
Paddy Power recently switched from Evolution Gaming to Playtech and whilst the tables don't look especially different, the lobby is far superior and navigation is as good as you'll ever find.
Registration and general loading speeds were second to none here, with every aspect of the software loading up in double quick time in every browser that we tried it with.
There are eight tables here with limits ranging from 50p up to £400 a spin, which is enough of a spread to keep just about anyone happy from casual lunchtime punters to hardcore high rollers.
The standard tables offer European roulette with bets from 50p to £200, though if you’re looking for a higher volume of spins then either of the two Slingshot virtual tables will be right up your street: They also take bets from 50p, and by dispensing with a live host it’s possible to play at a much greater speed and fit more games into each session. We timed the table here and each spin consistently took just 55 seconds, typically some 50% faster than playing with a host.
Pricier tables are also on offer, with one option to play from £1 up to £200, and two tables that will require you to bet from £5 up to £200.
Using the latest live streaming technology from Playtech gives these games an additional visual appeal, with improved lighting and background detail giving the impression of much more space. Other casinos using Playtech's live rooms have also benefited from this and it does seem that the Israeli software giant is inching ahead very steadily with its live rooms, and ought to steal Evolution's crown as the world's top hosted roulette studio if they continue at this rate.
Paddy Power tick every conceivable box in this respect: Their UK phone line (08000 565275), is open 24/7, and our call was answered promptly and competently. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, launch a 24/7 chat window, write to them (which isn’t always as easy as many casinos are highly evasive about their exact location) and even fax them.
Below the contact details, you’ll find constantly updated stats on response times for each method of communication, which we’ve never seen anywhere else.
Paddy Power have thrived by taking an unconventional approach to gaming: Their stated aim is to make risk-based entertainment accessible and fun, and they tend to succeed on both counts: They were the first major chain with a strong high street presence to sign up for Turf TV, and they rolled out the first electronic point of sale systems as well. In other, words, they’re known for taking your fun very seriously.
New players can opt-in to receive a £5 no deposit up-front bonus with a 32 times turnover requirement. Roulette games count 100% toward redemption which is almost unheard of, making this an exceptional bonus.
Paddy Power have made their live room into one of the most punter-friendly on the web by offering the same top-notch set of tables as their competitors, but keeping the stakes low.
It’s the approach you’d expect them to take, and it works: Just like the Irish pub chains that have appeared and thrived on the UK circuit on the last decade or so, it delivers that extra bit more and is that bit more affordable – and that’s enough to give them the advantage they need.
On top of the £5 offer there’s a standard deposit-based welcome bonus too, with 100%, 50% and 50% added to your first three deposits worth up to £100, £50 and £50 respectively.
Terms & Conditions
Roulette games count for 5% when calculating turnover requirements, so the quoted 32 times turnover for standard players will increase by 20 times for Roulette players. You can, of course, play slots to redeem the bonus and meet your target much more quickly. Other key terms are as follows:
How long is my bonus available for?
To take advantage of all three deposit bonuses, each bonus must be triggered (by activating the ‘buy in’ option) and accepted within 30 days of when you ‘buy in’ to the first deposit. Each deposit then is then valid for 7 days from when it is activated.
Can I claim any other bonuses while I have this bonus active on my account?
If you trigger another Paddy Power Casino bonus while this (or any other Paddy Power Casino bonus) is active, the bonuses will queue in your bonus balance. The sum of all bonuses will be shown in your casino balance, however all wagering on eligible games will accrue towards the requirements of the first bonus to be accepted.
What happens if I want to make a withdrawal before I have finished converting the bonus in full?
It depends which funds you wish to withdraw. A withdrawal of real funds (not ‘buy in’ or bonus funds) whilst you have a bonus active on your account will not result in the removal of your bonus. If you wish to withdraw your ‘buy in’ funds, you will need to cancel and you will forfeit the bonus balance and all pending winnings.
You can deposit with credit or debit card, or via “various electronic payment methods” which you’ll need to contact Paddy Power to discuss
Withdrawals can be made via Visa, Laser, Switch , Solo or Irish Mastercard. Cards are credited within 2-3 working days and any cheques sent will take 2-3 days before they’re dispatched.
