Everything you can dream of in one super casino!
It’s highly unlikely that there are any online gambling fans in the UK that haven’t heard of Paddy Power, as they have both a very prominent High Street sports betting operation and an equally prominent online presence. They also regularly advertise on the major UK TV channels. Famous for pushing the taste boundaries to the limit, this brand is also renowned for its rather risqué humour, and can be regarded as a bit ‘Marmite’, ie, you either love them or hate them. That said, the casino is certainly a fabulous gaming destination and highly recommended.
Paddy Power have been in the business for many years, but gave their site a general makeover in 2011 and since the update things have only got better. Moving from Boss Media to the Playtech software has been a huge step in the right direction for Paddy Power and the level of player satisfaction has seen quite a boost.
Paddy Power Casino is available in a download version and an instant Flash version and is powered by Playtech software, which provides top quality graphics, great features and an excellent gaming experience all thanks to the improved software.
The Paddy Power Casino is dominated by green with touches of black and purple making it easy on the eye. An uncluttered clean layout has the menu bar cutting across the top with clear tabs leading to the different areas of the casino. Right at the top of the page is a wider menu leading to the other products of the Paddy Power brand – Sports, Live Betting, Poker, Live Casino, Bingo, etc. The simple layout makes navigation easy and fuss free. Hover the mouse over a game category to see a summary of everything that’s under the tab – the total number of games and then the totals under each category. There is also a list of the most played games for easy access to the hot favourites. There are tabs for Slots, Roulette, Blackjack, Jackpots, Card & Table Games, Video Poker, and Leisure games.
Free Money Welcome Bonus
Another menu bar just below leads you to the Promotions, VIP, Rewards and other important sections.
The £/€10 No Deposit Bonus does attract the eye but maybe is not a huge crowd puller, some might think that five quid doesn’t go very far even it’s free, however, this is quite rare now with less casinos offering any free no deposit bonus welcome offers. This free tenner is valid for 72 hours after it’s credited and is subject to a 40x wagering minimum before withdrawal. After this new players can benefit from a 3 stage welcome offer; buy-in with a minimum £20 and get a 100% free cash match (the limit for this bonus is £200). The second is a 50% matched bonus up to £/€100 and the third is a 100% matched bonus up to £/€200.
This online casino has a massive selection of games including Slots, Roulette, Blackjack, Jackpots, Card & Table Games, Video Poker, and Leisure games that include scratch cards, Hi- Lo, Keno amongst others. There are nearly 150 slot machines and 47 of these offer progressive jackpots while 104 have bonus rounds. There are 15 different versions of roulette, 11 types of Blackjack, 12 choices in the Table & Card games, 14 options under Poker, and 59 different games that offer progressive and other jackpots. Most of the games have a Practice Play version which allows you to play for free.
There are plenty of other ad hoc promotions available (just check the site for details). For instance look out for cash back on your losses for regular players in the Take Home Thursday offers where you can win up to 10% cash back with a maximum value of £20.
The Paddy Power VIP programme has 5 Casino Club levels with the rewards and benefits getting better with every ascending level. VIP members get access to exclusive promotions, bonuses, discounts, birthday bonuses, special gifts and even a dedicated VIP Customer Service Team at their service.
