About Paddy Power
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.
