The Best Offers On The Paddy Power Website
September 19, 2017
The Paddy Power website has a huge number of offers listed at the moment, and we are able to make a profit from most of them thanks to matched betting techniques. When matched betting, we take advantage of promotions that offer incentives such as free bets or bonuses, turning them into real cash profits. The way we do this is through placing a back bet on a selection to win with the bookmaker and a lay bet on the same selection not to win on a betting exchange such as Betfair or Smarkets. As we have then covered both outcomes and qualified for a free bet or a bonus, we then use the free bet stake to guarantee a profit either way.
A look at the Paddy Power website
Paddy Power are one of the most popular bookmakers for punters in the UK and Ireland. The company started out as an Irish bookmaker back in 1988 and now has over 350 retail outlets across Ireland and Great Britain. They have gained a huge following thanks to their great work on social media and the advertising campaigns that have caught the eye. Here are some of their highlights over the years:
- Roy the Redeemer – an 108ft statue of former England manager Roy Hodsgon on the White Cliffs of Dover ahead of Euro 2012
- Emergency Alex Ferguson – A wax statue of Sir Alex in a glass box outside Old Trafford when successor David Moyes was struggling at Manchester United
- Royal Babies – Three giant babies seen outside St Mary’s Hospital before the birth of prince George, offering odds on the would-be prince’s name
- Paddy’s Pants – The famous green y-fronts that have been worn by many celebrities including Nicklas Bendtner and Floyd Mayweather
- Russian Embassy box – Urging Russian athletes to hand over their medals after the doping scandal
Their innovative advertising campaigns show no signs of slowing down either, and we can certainly expect more to come over the next couple of years. Look out for them at the big sporting events that are coming up.
In terms of the website itself, the green branding immediately lets you know that you are indeed on the Paddy Power site. They are proud of their Irish heritage and this shows in all of their branding. There are markets listed for over 40 sports, ranging from football and horse racing to Lacrosse and sailing. They are often ahead of the curve in terms of what they offer too, including having a lot more markets than many of their competitors.
In 2016 the company merged with Betfair. It is important to note that due to their partnership, it is best not to use Betfair as your chosen exchange when completing offers from Paddy Power.
The best offers currently available
- New Customer Offer
When signing up for an account with Paddy Power, you will be able to guarantee yourself a profit of at least £15 from their welcome offer. Basically, if you deposit and bet £20 of your own money then Paddy Power will refund your stake in cash if the bet loses. As this is a risk-free bet, we can ensure a profit thanks to matched betting.
When depositing funds to a bookmaker site, we always advise doing so with a debit card. For this offer, any deposits with Neteller or Moneybookers will not qualify for the offer. For this offer, we are able to use the help of the matched betting calculator. Simply use the ‘Bonus on loss’ function and enter the relevant details for your selection, such as back odds, back stake and lay odds. It is always best to find as close of a match as possible between the odds on Paddy Power and those on your chosen betting exchange. This means we can maximise our profits when the offer is complete.
A selection with back odds above 5.0 is ideal here. If your bet wins with Paddy Power you will have made a bigger profit with the bookmaker than you lose on the exchange. If your bet loses, you’ll make a bigger loss with the bookmaker than you win on the exchange, but the cash refund will leave you a profit from the offer.
- VIPP Club
With matched betting, it is certainly not all about the sign ups. You will be able to keep profits rolling in thanks to reload offers too, such as Paddy Power’s VIPP Club. If you place five £10 bets between Monday and Sunday then the bookie will give you a £10 free bet to use the following week. By securing a profit of £5 each time, you will be able to add around £260 over the course of a year.
Once you opt in, you just need to place the five qualifying bets by 23:59 on Sunday evening. Using ‘Normal bet’ on the calculator for the qualifiers and ‘Freebet’ for the free bets, this is an easy offer to do. Don’t worry if you miss a week either, you will still be able to qualify for the promotion the following week as long as you meet the qualifying criteria.
- Money Back If
This offer usually comes in the form of money back if your horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th to the Starting Price (SP) favourite. Simply place a bet up to £25 on a horse in a selected race and get a free bet refund if your selection finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th to the SP favourite. Though we are unable to guarantee a profit from this particular promotion, if we keep qualifying losses as low as possible it will give us a close to risk free shot at hitting the free bet refund.
This offer also comes in the form of your selected Greyhound finishing 2nd to the SP favourite at selected Greyhound racing meetings each day. The strategy is essentially the same, but the estimated value of the offer is lower here.
- 2 Up
Another potential profit offer where we look to keep qualifying losses as low as possible. When you place a bet on any Premier League, Champions League Group or La Liga match and back a team to win, Paddy Power will pay you out as a winner if your selection goes 2 goals up. Due to the early pay out, if your selection does go 2 goals up and end up not winning the game you would win both your back bet and your lay bet. If things go your way this could be a very lucrative offer.
Paddy has also decided to introduce this offer for Tennis and NFL recently, when your selection went 2 sets or 14 points up respectively.
- Hotshot Jackpot
You can enter this risk-free competition each week of the football season. All you need to do is guess the first goalscorer in 6 selected matches. If you guess them all correctly then the jackpot of £250,000, or at least a share of the jackpot, will be yours.
The best thing about this offer is that you do not need to wager a single penny to attempt it. The chances of you actually winning the jackpot is admittedly very slim, but it is well worth attempting alongside the other matched betting offers.
All of the offers listed on this page have specific offer guides in the Premium section of MatchedBets.com. We talk you through how to complete each offer from start to finish, making sure you add to your profits thanks to matched betting.
