Paddy Power UK Review 2019
Paddy Power is an Irish bookmaker which was established in Dublin in 1988. The company started life with a range of licensed betting shops in the United Kingdom and Ireland plus operated telephone betting lines.
However, the company really came into its own thanks to its online presence and a series of controversial betting markets and advertising campaigns. The latest of which is an advert in the UK featuring the brother of Ryan Giggs and discusses loyalty.
Despite their outlandish marketing strategy, everything is above board with Paddy Power, who have merged with Betfair. They are licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission for punters in the UK and hold two additional licenses for gamblers around the world.
