Paddy Power's Famous Money-Back Specials
One of the major promotional strategies that make Paddy Power stand out from other online bookmakers are their famous 'Money-Back Specials' which can save punters a small fortune. They are regular in number, cover a huge range of sports and are well promoted both on their website, blog and on TV for the big horse races, football, rugby or Major golf tournaments.
UK and Irish Horse Racing - Best Odds Guaranteed
If you take a price with Paddy Power and the starting price is higher then they pay you out at the higher odds. There are some exclusions such as ante-post and in-play bets amongst others, but this is a great offer as horse racing odds can shorten or lengthen very quickly, especially at the big meetings like the Cheltenham Festival. If you take 25/1 on your selection and your horse wins with an SP of 33/1 then you get paid at the better odds.
Open Championship 7 Places Each Way Special
Normally you can back players Each Way in golf and get paid out up to 5th place; in Majors some bookies will extend this to 6 places which is great value. For the Open, however, Paddy Power traditionally extended their each way terms to 7 places at 1/4 the odds - that's unbeatable value! 2012 also saw extended 6 place Each Way terms at The Masters, US Open, and the PGA Championship golfing Majors. In addition, Paddy Power also ran a US Open 7 Places each way special for mobile. Paddy Power are the only bookmaker currently offering cash out on each way golf bets - more information here.
