The Paddy Power heritage is of Irish roots.
Founded way back in 1988, it has outlasted many of its rivals.
Traditionally, an offline bookmaker with a long chain of outlets across the UK and Ireland as well as being the biggest telephone betting services provider.
Paddy Power Online is now a force to be reckoned with too. The empire has been successful in Sports Betting, Poker, Casino Games, Bingo Online, Spread Betting and more.
In 2016, the Company merged with Betfair and became Paddy Power Betfair.
There is a good range of poker tournaments here. Their Twister Sit & Go’s come with different buy-in’s ranging from 1 to 50 Euros and offer prizes of up to 40,000 Euros. If you are new to Poker, Paddy Power has got the Steps Sit & Go Tournaments. Buy-in starts at just 10 cents, and the duration of these tournaments is generally pretty short. There is no easy to view schedule. Hopefully, they will change that as it’s hard to see quickly what the next available tournament actually is.

Paddy Power Poker School
As we are on the subject of players who are new to Poker, it would be prudent to mention the Poker School that they offer on the site. They have an impressive amount of helpful posts, videos, jargon busters, hints, tips, Expert Q&A, strategy tips, general advice and more. It’s even worth a look if you’re not new to Poker, there are tonnes of useful stuff to look through, it is very comprehensive and well laid out. http://poker.paddypower.com/how-to-play-poker
Paddy Power accepts all of the cards you would expect: Visa, Mastercard, Debit Cards, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, Moneybookers, Cash Card and Cash Card Plus.
The minimum deposit amount is 5 Euros, and the minimum withdrawal amount is 10 Euros.
Withdrawals from the Paddy Power website take on average 2-3 days to hit your bank account. However, due to their processing time, it can take up to five days to process. In order to get the exact day estimated correctly, you can use a table they have put up in their help centre about this here.
They offer a card on their website called the Cash Card PPLUS. This is just a pre-paid Mastercard, but it is linked to your Paddy Power account and gives instant access to your winnings on the site. It has proven a real hit with many customers as it also allows them to withdraw cash with the card as well as paying for everyday items in a safe and secure way.
If you are looking to get in touch with the Customer Services team at Paddy Power Poker, then it seems the only option this company offers is via a web form on their site. There are no email addresses or telephone numbers on the site, nor is there a live chat function which is very disappointing.
