Here at Paddy Power, our business is built on you having fun and we want to make sure that gambling never has a damaging effect. But you don’t have to just take our word for it, we’re making solid commitments to back up what we say.
The Paddy Power Way
Gambling should be safe and enjoyable for you and all our punters. We’re already spreading the word about Safer Gambling so that everyone gets the message but putting you in control is also vital. That’s why we’ve come up with a bunch of tools from deposit and loss limits to full self-exclusion. These tools have been designed to be simple and easy to use and we’re constantly chipping away and fine tuning them to make them work even better.
We’re pumping time and effort into new technology and creating a learning culture to make safe play the Paddy Power way. We want to protect you and all our punters, and make sure you always have fun when you play.
Our self-exclusion facility now covers both Paddy Power and Betfair brands. From 30/12/2016, if you self-exclude from one brand, we will endeavour to prevent you accessing your Account (or opening a new Account) within your selected self-exclusion timeframe across both brands.
Please note: Self-Exclusion does not cover Sky Betting & Gaming, PokerStars brands or Full Tilt Poker. You will need to self-exclude directly with the relevant brand in order to be excluded from your account with that brand.
