Deposit Limits (United Kingdom)

What is a Deposit Limit?


Paddy Power allows you to set a personal Deposit Limit which helps you control how much you can deposit in for a set period. This can be daily, weekly, or monthly.

Deposit Limits can help you manage your spending if you ensure you set responsible limits which indicate funds which you can afford to lose.

For customers based in the United Kingdom, If you wish to decrease your limit you can do this at any time, and it will be effective immediately. To increase your limit however, it will take 24 hours to take effect on your account.

After this 24-hour period you will be asked to confirm the change on logging in.


How to set a Deposit Limit

Step 1. From the top right of the page select 'My Account' and then 'Safer Gambling Tools' from the drop down.

Step 2. Select Set your Deposit Limit underneath Available tools

Step 3. Select your frequency “Daily, Weekly or Monthly” and enter your Deposit Limit 'Set Deposit Limit' and “Confirm” to apply your changes

How are Deposit Limits calculated?

Your Deposit Limit is based on your net position. This is your deposits minus your withdrawals. For example:

You have set a £100 per week limit.

  • You deposit £50 on Monday.
  • You withdraw £100 on Tuesday.
  • £100 (Deposit Limit) – £50 (Deposits) + £100 (Withdrawals)= £150 available to deposit for the rest of the week

When do Deposit Limits reset?

Deposit Limits works on a set time-period.

Daily limits reset at 00:00 each day.

Weekly limits reset every Monday at 00:00

Monthly limits reset on the first of the month at 00:00
