There are few bigger names in the world of online gaming and sports betting than Paddy Power (known as Paddy Power Betfair since the two merged in 2016). And while it’s fair to say that Paddy Power is probably better associated with bookmaking, the awards it has picked up in recent years for its online casino site (including Casino Operator of the Year at the 2016 and 2015 EGR Awards) demonstrate its prominent place in online gaming as well.
The new player offer available at Paddy Power UK is one of the best available in the market and this is a position that Paddy Power likes to maintain.
When you make a first deposit of just £10 you receive a £50 bonus on top, meaning you’re playing with £60. In addition, you get 20 slot spins as part of the deal. While the deposit bonus is subject to a 35x wagering requirements, the spins come with no wagering requirements attached to the winnings.
Winnings from bonuses are capped at £500. Your spins become available once you have met the playthrough requirement or lost the bonus sum, and are released 10 spins at a time over two days. Your spins can be played only on selected slots and casino games — see T&Cs for the full list.
This is a site where you will never feel short-changed. The offers always show an imaginative approach to new player deals and always offer great value.

As one of the largest operators around, Paddy Power Casino is in a position to offer some very tasty rewards and competition prizes. For instance, they regularly run promotions featuring extravagant luxury holidays as the top prize, along with cash prizes worth thousands of pounds. To take part, you simply need to opt in and then every wager you make earns you points. The more points you pick up, the more entries you have in the prize draws.
There are also regular promotions and specials available via the Facebook and Twitter pages, although these tend to be focussed on sports betting rather than Paddy Power slots and casino games.
Paddy Power Casino is exclusively powered by Playtech, one of the oldest and most respected game developers in the industry. Somewhat unusually these days, players using PCs have the option to download the free casino software (not available on Mac OS), or alternatively you can play games directly in the browser of your device.
However, just because all the Paddy Power slots on offer are by a single developer does not mean that there isn’t good choice and variety here. There are over 300 games in total, including around 150 slots, and while this selection isn’t as large as at many other sites, with Playtech games you can always be assured of the quality.
There are plenty of new release games to choose from, along with a good selection of video and themed slots. Some of the well-known and popular titles include The Dark Knight Rises, Terminator Genisys, American Dad and Chinese Kitchen.
However, it’s the progressive jackpot games where the Paddy Power slots range really excels, with over 40 different titles to choose from. There are games from the very popular Age of the Gods series, such as Rulers of Olympus, Mighty Midas and God of Storms, as well as other big money Playtech jackpot games like Gladiator, Beach Life, Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven and Sweet Party.
There is also a good selection of table and card games, video poker, and scratch card games to choose from.
The live casino section features an excellent selection of casino classics, like blackjack, roulette and baccarat, as well as a range of table poker and big wheel games.
Paddy Power UK offers players a good range of payment methods, and accounts can be operated in GBP. As well as the more commong credit and debit cards, you can also use bank transfer, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. You also have the option to use Cash Card and Cash Card PPlus, Paddy Power’s own debit card that is linked to your bank account and from which you can also make cash withdrawals at ATMs or make purchases.
The minimum deposit using any of these methods is £5, there are no charges, and funds are instantly credited to your account.
The minimum withdrawal you can make using any of these payment methods is £10, and funds need to be withdrawn using the same method as was used for deposits. Processing times are relatively quick when compared to many other sites, with PayPal and e-wallet withdrawals generally being able available in your account within 1 to 4 hours. Withdrawing to a credit or debit card, or using bank transfer, is slower and it will probably take between 2 to 3 working days before withdrawn funds appear in your account.
Paddy Power is one of the most dominant and vibrant voices in the social media space, with popular Facebook (@paddypower) and Twitter (@paddypower) accounts that are very active and have a lot of followers.
However, it has to be said that it is the sports betting side of the operation that probably commands the most attention on social media, although casino games and slots are not neglected entirely. The feed on the Facebook page, for instance, has videos and stories about big, upcoming events, with a particular emphasis on the latest happenings in the Premier League, and is full of football banter, memes and jokes. There are also special deals and offers that get promoted as well. There are also occasionally online casino posts, often about big Paddy Power slots wins or similar, but the engagement levels are not as high. Nevertheless, you can use Facebook Messenger to contact customer support.
The Twitter account is largely the same, in that the emphasis is also on sports betting, but again there are still posts about the Paddy Power casino and other related topics, and it is a useful way to connect with customer services. If you are a sports punter, you can go to the @AskPaddyPower Twitter page if you want a bespoke market or price on a particular sporting event.
The Paddy Power mobile slots experience is first rate and the site is accessible to players using any type of device.
For users of Apple iPhone and iPad (iOS 9.0+), the free Paddy Power app is available in the App Store (search ‘Paddy Power Casino & Roulette’). You can get the Android app (4.4+) from Google Play by searching for ‘Paddy Power Casino – Roulette, Blackjack & Slots’. Alternatively, you can play HTML5 mobile slots directly in the browser of your smartphone or tablet on any operating system at paddypower.com.
In the Paddy Power app there is a good range of around 150 Playtech mobile slots, including new release games, video and themed slots, as well as progressive jackpot games. Table and card games can be played in the mobile casino as well, along with a range of live dealer games that are streamed in real time HD to your phone or tablet.
The UI of the Paddy Power mobile casino site means that it’s generally easy to navigate and use, although at times the home page can appear a little cluttered. Nevertheless, it always easy to access your favourite games, as well as your account pages and customer support.
While it would seem that Paddy Power is perhaps more focussed on the sports betting side of its operations rather than the online casino, this doesn’t really detract from the quality of the gaming experience here. This is largely because the Playtech slots are all first rate games and, although the number of slots isn’t huge, there is still enough choice and variety to keep most players engaged.
The best feature of the Paddy Power slots range is the progressive jackpot collection, in particular the Age of the Gods series, and the regular programme of new release slots also means there are untried games to explore all the time.
The Paddy Power mobile casino also has top games with high quality visuals and sound effects, and the live dealer games look particularly good when played on a phone or tablet.
When you factor all of this in, plus the fact that there is a good range of payment options available, the final score in our Paddy Power review is 4 ½ stars our of 5.
