Paddy Power Review
Paddy Power Overview
Paddy Power first opened in 1988 and was due to 40 shops from three of Irelands biggest bookmakers merging together to make one company which you see today. Even though three bookies formed together they decided to go with the name Power due to that being the strongest brand out of the three and therefore would be more successful with customers while they adapted the Paddy part because of the ties it has to Ireland which is also reflected in the sites green colours. From this point onwards they have expanded rapidly across Ireland and into the UK thanks to their lads attitude to advertising with many tongue in cheek promotions.
