Who are Paddy Power

In 1988, Paddy Power was born, following the merger of three existing Irish bookmakers, and it has subsequently grown to become Ireland's largets bookmaker, and by November 2011 Paddy Power was the largest bookmaker in Europe by market capitalisation, with 2010 group income of around €444m.

Paddy Power have increased market awareness by offering unconventional markets or payouts. Some of their biggest 'stunts' include:

  • 2008 - After only one game in the 2008/2009 Premier league season, following their 3 - 1 loss at the hands of Bolton Wanderers, Paddy Power paid out on all bets for Stoke to be relegated that season. Stoke eventually actually finished the season mid-table.
  • 2008 - Also in 2008, Paddy Power offered 16-1 on US President Barack Obama 'would not finish' his first term
  • 2010 - Following the German Grand Prix, Paddy Power shocked punters by refunding all losing bets place on Felipe Massa to win the race, after the Ferrari ;team orders gate', which enabled Fernando Alonso to win the race, in spite of the fact that Massa had a clear lead.
  • 2011 - Paddy Power again shocked punters  by paying out on New Zealand winning the rugby world cup, four days before the final against France! The company boss said: 'New Zealand have left all of their opposition so far feeling black and blue and it's inevitable us bookies will be taking a hammering from them on Sunday too - so punters might as well collect now.'

Since the end of 2007, Paddy Power began offering online bingo games. The original "Paddy Power Bingo" used Parlay's bingo software. In 2009, Paddy Power moved their bingo operations from Parlay to Playtech's Virtue Fusion software platform.
