About Paddy Power

Our Paddy Power review is unbiased and to the point. Paddy Power is an Irish bookmaker that was first established back in 1988. The brand was born after the merging of three Irish bookmakers who owned 40 premises through the country. These consisted of David Power, Stewart Kenny, and John Corcoran. The Power name was deemed to be the strongest of the three brands to take forward into the merged business venture. The “Paddy” part of the brand was added along with the green brand colour to emphasise the Irish heritage of the business.

The Paddy Power brand is also licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission for UK customers. The bookmaker's sports betting sector is licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission.

In 2016, Paddy Power completed a merger with betting exchange Betfair. Paddy Power owned 52% of the merged company with Betfair owning 48%. The two brands remain separately active in the UK, Ireland, and Italy.

Paddy Power is a brand that has been at the centre of controversy for a number of years now with the bookmaker adopting an unconventional approach to the gambling industry ever since it was founded.
