In this Paddy Power review, we will take a look at the games they offer, their license, and their current promotions.
The company operates in Dublin 4, Ireland, and is regulated by two of the most prominent commissions in the online casino world: the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
- United Kingdom Gambling Commission – this a prominent gambling regulator. In fact, one cannot think of any casino that is not licenced by the UKGC. It regularly audits online casinos to ensure that the appropriate systems are in place for fair gaming. The UKGC does not take or entertain complaints from players, but it requires operators to have an auditor representation certified by UKGC.
- Alderney Gambling Control Commission – this has been around for almost 20 years. It issues licences to states outside the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom and the European Union. Most of the facilities that operate with this commission are those that are within the States of Alderney.
Current Bonuses and Promotions
Players can currently see five offers, including the two sign-up bonuses elaborated in the next section. While the offers are not the kind you typically see in online casinos, they are still worth the money. Below is a summary of the rest.
- VIP Trip to Paradise – this promotion is open to every registered customer who decided to opt-in during the registration period.
- To qualify, one must play only in areas that qualify for the promotion. These areas are Games, Casino, and Live Casino.
