Paddy Power Online Casino Review
In this review we’ll be looking at Paddy Power Casino, a mobile gambling platform from Ireland’s biggest bookie.
The last time we were talking about Paddy Power, it was to report on their success at the 2013 mGaming Awards, where Paddy Power was the single biggest success story of the night – managing to bag three prizes! Among the accolades Paddy Power enjoyed at the mGaming Awards was the award for Innovation in Mobile. This is something we take very seriously, and so feel that the winner of this category really deserves some recognition. We’ve decided to take a closer look at Paddy Power Casino, and work out its secret to becoming a success story.
Paddy Power Casino is powered by Playtech, and has a selection of games ranging from slots, to table games and video poker. Straight off the bat, we have the casino classics available – you can enjoy European Roulette, Poker, Baccarat and Blackjack, as with any good mobile casino. On top of this there’s the great mobile video poker, as well as five scratch cards to keep you entertained. All games run smoothly on different mobile devices too.
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the slots – they include Playtech favourites like Desert Treasure, Gold Rally and the Marvel slots collection with four progressive jackpots. It’s a pretty decent selection, and with the way Paddy Power is on the mobile front, we’re confident that you’ll soon see more great games hitting the casino soon.
The prizes are pretty standard fare. Unlike William Hill, the slots don’t have the biggest jackpots in the world, but you can still expect some pretty serious amounts of money if you’re a serious player. After all, Paddy Power is a big brand, and as such, you can expect them not to scrimp on their prizes.
Unfortunately, the welcome bonus isn’t huge – with only a £5 bonus available for new players. However, after depositing, players enjoy a £200 Welcome Package:
- 100% First Deposit Match up to £100
- 50% Second Deposit Match up to £50
- 50% Third Deposit Match up to £50
Their weekly promotions aren't particularly attractive and appeal more to VIP players with big ambitions. We wouldn’t say that the bonuses are the biggest draw of Paddy Power Casino, but they’re definitely worth having and augment your gaming perfectly.
The large promotions during festive seasons are truly worth celebrating – in fact, we named Paddy Power as the Casino of the Month for July 2014 because their World Cup promotions blew our socks off! They eventually gave away £501,000 over a few weeks. Great promotions are not a regular affair around here, but when the circus is in town, they’re not to be missed.
Paddy Power accepts deposits in a large variety of methods – Phone Bill (PayByMobile), Debit/ Credit Cards, Skrill, Neteller, Ukash, Paypal and bank transfer. The minimum deposit is £5 while the maximum deposit is £6000.
While we are strong advocates of depositing by phone bill (i.e. the most convenient and secure depositing method on earth), we must applaud the security of deposits via Paddy Power. Deposits via card uses 3D-secure password system, in which the bank verifies every transaction on-screen.
It’s worth mentioning that when you want to cash-out, the service you’ll find at Paddy Power is second to none. It’s really quick and easy to get hold of the cash you’ve won, and the fact that Paddy Power offers unlimited cash-outs is another big bonus! Of course, this is provided that the cash-out has cleared the wagering requirements and can be withdrawn.
There’s actually quite a few things that really stand out about Paddy Power Casino, and it is easy to understand why it is such a highly thought of operator. First off, it’s worth pointing out that the site looks good and runs really smoothly. This is thanks both to Playtech’s dedication to creating mobile optimised games and to Paddy Power’s focus on making sure their platform works well for mobiles, and their players.
On top of all this, you’ll log into the casino using one Paddy Power account that will then work anywhere throughout the entire range of Paddy Power products, both online or on your mobile. This makes depositing, withdrawing, switching devices, or moving to another platform really easy. Here is a list of their other apps that you can download with the same account: Games, Sports, Bingo, Live Casino, Deal or No Deal and their Bet Calculator. Paddy Power has certainly covered every mobile gaming and gambling need.
It’s good and we like it. Granted, it could do with some more games, but Paddy Power is known to be working tirelessly on improving their mobile offering, so we’re sure that in a short while we’ll be seeing far more games available at this casino. When you consider all the great extra features the casino has to offer, it’s no wonder the mGaming Awards saw it fit to recognise the innovation Paddy Power is putting into its mobile casino – it runs well, is well linked to other platforms, and is a really fun place to play. It’d be exciting to see how Paddy Power Mobile grows!
