Paddy Power Sports has a wide range of betting types and regularly offers ‘Money Back’ special bets on selected events, as well as new concepts like Insurebet which offers your money back on certain conditions, eg. if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd, or if your ‘1st goalscorer’ scores later in game.

Racing : Paddy Power offers a price guarantee on all UK and Irish horse and greyhound racing, and ‘Faller Insurance’ is available – making Paddy the only bookmaker where you can get your money back if your horse falls. Making a ‘Place Bet’ is simple, so your bet will win even if your horse places 4th in 16 runners (or 3rd in 8-15 runners). There’s also the option of betting ‘Without the Favourite’ so you’ll win whether your horse beats the favourite or comes 2nd after the favourite. You can easily check statistics of recent statistics for horses, jockeys and trainers, including wins, courses, etc.
