What is the maximum payout?

It is the duty of all customers to stay within the limits mentioned hereafter. The limits apply to both single and multiple type bets. Where a multiple bet (i.e. any bet other than a single bet) has been placed which involves events with different maximum payout limits then the limit which will apply to the multiple in its entirety will be either: (i) the lowest limit; or (ii) an amount equal to ten times the total prize fund of the event, whichever is lower.

All bets are subject to a maximum payment to any one customer, (or as set out below, any group of related customers) in any one day irrespective of stakes, odds or number of winning lines as listed below. Other than as set out below, a bet is accepted on the basis that it is the investment of one customer.

All maximum payout limits apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, who have placed bets containing the same selections, including where placed in a series of bets, at a range of prices, over a number of days using different betting accounts and/or across different betting channels. Should we have reason to believe that a number of bets have been placed this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.

“Full Service” means where full details (betting, official off-times and results) are advertised by SIS or TurfTV for horse races or greyhound races.

The onus of responsibility rests firmly with the customer to ensure that he/she stays within the limits outlined below.

We reserve the right, in our discretion, to apply the limits.

Maximum payout values below are stated in GBP Sterling (£). Currency equivalents apply using the GBP local currency exchange rate on the day of settlement of the bet.

The maximum that can be won on a bet depends on the event and market, as set out in the table below:

American Sports





Greyhound Racing

Ante-post bets on greyhounds are subject to a maximum payment of £50,000. The only exception to this is the English Greyhound Derby which has a maximum payout of £100,000.

The maximum payment to any one customer in respect of any one day’s greyhound bets in the UK for which all selections are covered in Full Service is £100,000. Bets accepted at Irish greyhound tracks and UK tracks not covered by Full Service are subject to a maximum payment of £10,000.

Paddy Power only accept bets from Irish greyhound tracks which are covered by Turf TV and Shelbourne Park (Saturday fixture only). Any bets inadvertently processed for Shelbourne Park’s midweek fixtures on Wednesday or Thursday will be deemed Void regardless of the result. The only exception to this is if Paddy Power have their own prices for a particular race/event in Ireland or the event is a midweek heat of the Irish Greyhound Derby.

Horse Racing

We pay double result on all horse racing selections running in Ireland and the UK which are covered in Full Service. Double result/first past the post bets are subject to the maximum payout limits set out in the table below (Note: applies only to meetings covered by Full Service).


The above limits apply even where a customer has taken prices, and except in the following cases:

Any bet in Ireland or the UK which includes a selection which is not covered in Full Service (i.e. point to point meeting) or for Virtual Racing, are subject to a maximum payout of £50,000.

Any bet which contains a selection running at a race meeting in any country outside of Ireland and the UK where race results are not covered in Full Service is subject to a maximum payout of £50,000.

Ante post bets are subject to a maximum payment of £50,000.

The maximum payment to any one customer betting on the Tote via Dial-a-Bet in respect of any one day’s UK Jackpot or Placepot bets is £50,000 and £10,000 for Quadpots. Quadpots are also subject to a maximum payment of twice the total Tote pool, or twice the SP place accumulator returns, whichever is the lesser. Where we believe the Tote return has been affected by rigging we reserve the right to settle all Tote bets at the returned SP or its place equivalent.

Overall Maximum Daily Payout Limit:

Subject to any lower limits that may apply in respect of any particular event (as set out above), the overall maximum daily payout limit to any customer for all winning bets placed on the Sportsbook, Fixed Odds and Multiples products combined is £1,000,000 (or the currency equivalent). If you place winning bets on those products that exceed this daily limit, your winnings will be reduced to £1,000,000 and the remainder of your winnings in excess of £1,000,000 will be forfeited by you.
