Paddy Power Casino was established back in 2004 and has since become one of the most popular and leading online casinos in the UK and Ireland. It is powered by Playtech and it is available as a download and instant-play online casino. It also has a mobile version. iPhone and iPad users can download the app directly from iTunes, whereas Android owners can open the website in their mobile browsers, log in (register if they haven’t already) and then start playing. Paddy Power offers both a No Deposit and a Welcome Bonus to all new players, as well as a range of other bonuses.
£10 No Deposit Bonus
All new players at Paddy Power Casino get to claim £10 No Deposit Bonus. That way, they are able to start wagering and playing real money casino games without even risking their own money. Many casino operators offer similar bonuses, but the real difference is that even players who already have a Paddy Power account, but haven’t played casino games before are able to claim the bonus.
How to Claim
- Log in if you have a Paddy Power sports betting account but haven’t played casino games before, or sign up if you don’t have an account.
- Go to the ‘Promotions’ page and choose to opt in to the Free 10 Bonus offer.
- Open any of the available casino games and the £10 will be credited automatically.
As you can see claiming this bonus is quite easy and simple and it can be done in a matter of seconds. All players who want to be able to claim the offer have to verify that they are over 18. In order to do that you will need to click on the ‘Verify’ button and do as suggested. It should also be noted that this offer isn’t available to players who use Skrill and Neteller as payment methods.
Terms and Conditions
There are specific terms and conditions under which players can claim the bonus. The bonus offer is valid for 72 hours after the player has registered. One bonus is permitted per person, but also per address, IP address and household.
There is also a wagering requirement. Every player has to wager an amount 40 times the bonus, before they are allowed to withdraw any of the bonus-related winnings. That means that an amount of £400 has to be wagered before any winnings can be withdrawn. Also, the winnings are limited to £25. There is a list of eligible games on which the bonus amount can be wagered and that list essentially is the full list of games available at Paddy Power Casino.
Not all games contribute towards the wagering requirement equally. With some games, every £1 that you wager will be counted towards the wagering requirement, whereas if you play some of the other games only a fraction of the amount you wager will be calculated. Some don’t contribute at all.
For example, if you play slot games, scratch cards or fixed odds games, with few exceptions, the contribution is full 100%. That doesn’t include double options on slots, the contribution from all bets where double options are activated is 0%. A 100% contribution means that if you wager £400 on slots and scratch cards then you will have completed the wagering requirement and you would be allowed to withdraw your winnings.
The contribution of almost all Roulette games is 20%, so is the contribution of most card games. Certain slot titles have a 20% or 10% contribution. When a game has 20% contribution, it means that out of £100 wagered on it, only £20 will be counted towards the wagering requirement. Most versions of Blackjack also have a 10% contribution, whereas Craps, most of the remaining Blackjack games and only 5%. Live casino games, Blackjack Surrender, Zero games and all video poker games don’t contribute towards the wagering requirement at all.
Furthermore, if a player is playing Roulette and the bets that are wagered cover more than 75% of the Roulette table, that bet will contribute 0% towards the wagering requirement.
£500 Welcome Bonus
In addition to the No Deposit Bonus, players are also entitled to a Welcome Bonus up to £500. This bonus is awarded in three instalments after each of the first three deposits. The minimum deposit required to qualify for the Welcome Bonus is £10.
How to Claim
- Log in to your casino account and make your first deposit of at least £10.
- Go to the ‘Promotions’ page and click ‘Buy In’.
- Once you buy in, the bonus amount that you are entitled to will be credited to your account automatically.
- In the following 30 days, you will be able to buy in for the two remaining bonuses on your second and third deposit.
The terms and conditions of this bonus offer are quite clear. Firstly, Neteller and Skrill aren’t accepted as payment methods for this bonus, so don’t deposit via these two e-Wallets if you plan on claiming the bonus.
First Deposit Bonus
The First Deposit Bonus is a 100% match bonus up to £200. Once you deposit and buy in, you have 14 days to complete the wagering requirement. If you don’t manage to do so, then your winnings will be cancelled and the buy in amount that has not been used will be credited back to your account.
You are allowed to claim another bonus while this one is still active and if you do that, the bonus will be, so to say, queued in your account. All of the money that you wager will go towards the wagering requirement of the bonus you claimed first. Only after that wagering requirement is met you will start wagering towards the requirement of the second bonus.
The wagering requirement for this bonus is 20 times the bonus plus the buy in amount. So, if you deposit a total of £100 and receive a bonus worth £100, you will need to wager an amount times 20, which is £4,000. You will still be able to withdraw any real funds that you have deposited, that is any amount that is not ‘buy in’ amount. If you want to withdraw any part of the ‘buy in’ amount, then your bonus will be cancelled and all winnings will be voided.
As for the wagering requirement and game contribution. Like with the No Deposit Bonus, not all games contribute towards the wagering requirement equally. The contribution percentage is the same, so you will need to be careful when choosing which game to play before you complete the wagering requirement. Bear in mind that here the amount that you would have to wager in order to complete the requirement is much higher.
Second and Third Deposit Bonus
The Second Deposit Bonus is a 50% match bonus up to £100, which means that you’ll need a £100 wager for a bonus of £50. You will also have 14 days to complete the wagering requirement, but remember that if you wish to claim all three deposit bonus, you will need to complete the wagering requirements for all three within 30 days after making your first deposit. The game contribution is also the same.
The Third Deposit Bonus is, like the First a 100% match up to £200. Taken together the full amount of all three bonuses is £500. If you want to claim the full bonus amount, you would have to make a deposit of £600 (£200+£200+£200) and you’ll have to meet a total wagering requirement of £22,000.
In addition to the standard set of restrictions noted in the section above, you are also not allowed to wager over 30% of the bonus on one bet, play a game that contributes only 20% or less towards the wagering requirement and then move to a game with a 100% contribution.
Other Bonuses and Promotions
Even regular players at Paddy Power Casino can count on a range of different promotions and bonuses, as well as a Rewards Program and a VIP Program.
Paddy Power frequently offers bonuses on particular games, like Blackjack or Roulette, or time-limited bonus which are available for a certain period of the year. Usually, when one bonus offer expires, another is offered.
Rewards Program and VIP
All players at Paddy Power start collecting Club Points as soon as they register and start making deposits. One point is awarded for every £10 deposit. Then, the points can be redeemed for cash.
By collecting more points you move up the levels of the Rewards Program. There are 5 levels and then there is the VIP Level. The VIP is invitation only and only players who have reached the Level 5 of the Rewards Program can get an invitation.
VIP members get exclusive promotions, gifts and there is a VIP Customer Service Team. Moreover, VIP members also get a better point conversion rate and invitations for VIP events, tickets for sports matches, holiday packages and more.
