Paddy Power is lying SCAM

I'm a new commer in betting and I would like to inform others like me to AVOID Paddy Power.

Their bonuses and free bet offers are lying. I did much more than was required to receive 50€ free bet, but they decided to cancel my free bet because I had used Money Booker as a deposit method (nothing was mentioned before that MB isn't fine). Maybe they were pissed off because I turned my 20€ free bet in games into 22€ non withdrawalbe cash:). So I had only lost one 200€ bet there and "won" this non withdrawable amount from games and they sent me a letter below:


At Paddy Power we offer a wide range of promotions and concessions to our customers. These include Money Back Specials, Best Price Guaranteed, Free Bets and other bonuses.

Having performed a review of your account, we regret to inform you that we are no longer able to offer you any such promotions, with immediate effect. This decision has been taken after careful consideration and will not affect your ability to bet on our Sportsbook or any other Paddy Power product.
I do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

And when I asked to receive atleast my 100% bonus (50€) that I had earned and qualified they answered like this (below):


Unfortunately as you have used Money bookers to deposit you can not receive sign up free bets, This has now been removed from the account. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Something like this can happen with other bookmakers too but they normally give what they have promised unless you are from a wrong country:). I am myself from Finland.

Be carefull out there!

It's nothing to do with you being from Finland. Their Terms and Conditions make it clear that customers who deposit via Moneybookers are not eligible for any free bet offers (Free Bets Terms & Conditions Section 10), although their Free Bet Terms and Conditions are separate from their general Terms and Conditions and so are not very easy to find. What I will say about Paddy Power, however, is that in my view they are only interested in recreational players and will very quickly severely limit or close the account of anyone who threatens to win money off them in the long run. They are a reputable bookmaker and deserve their BMR Green List status, but if you are a serious player who wins large amounts of money in the long run, then you will very soon outstay your welcome with them and start receiving emails like the first one they sent you above. It's a great shame that they behave in this way, but the vast majority of online bookmakers do these days.
