The previous wit on PaddyPower’s site has been toned down a bit. The homepage previously had humourous comments such as “Yossi Benayoun’s warning that he could leave Liverpool is roughly the footballing equivalent of Michael Douglas threatening to leave Catherine Zeta Jones“.
PaddyPower often have the best odds in the industry. In addition to this, they almost certainly have the most extensive markets with some approaching 100 bets on certain events!
PaddyPower are also famous for their “Money-Back Specials”. Here they will give you your money back on a match/game/race if your bet loses and a certain event takes place. For example: In a football match, if you lose your bet and the last goal is scored by a certain player, the offer may be for you to have your stake returned. These specials are released every week. One of their biggest payouts was in the Champions League Final of May 2008. The offer was: If Ronaldo scored, then they would refund all 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast single bets on the match. Of course, he scored and they ended up paying £1.2 million back to customers.
Novelty betting is also included in Paddy Power’s service. They take bets on the existence of God and also extend normal markets to slightly comedic levels. e.g. “Which match will Ronaldo first cry in during Euro 2008”. You’ll also find a number of political bets available on their site.
