The PP sports app gets rave reviews all over the internet, not just with us. At the beginning of the year, it went though a little visual face lift. Now this wasn’t essential as the app has always looked and performed well, but PP felt it necessary. There were quite a bit of modifications to the app but one of the main ones for us was to the In Play Racing. Now you never need to miss a winner again with the brand new In-Play Racing Experience. As soon as the race starts, an In-Play market tab will appear so you can bet while you watch the live race stream. A new and improved layout and menu change where they added new tabs have made it even easier for you to find an event, go to a market and to bet on your selections. That’s not the only thing that has had a make over, the live stats and visualisations have had a new face and made it easier to see the latest information on all of the critical match moments.
Not one to be outdone, Paddy Power have also added there own build a bet feature to the mobile app and called it Same Game Multi. Like other bookies, with this option you can put together your own bet from loads of different options in one game. There are around 70 markets you are able to choose from and all you need to do is add multiple selections from any tab to create your unique bet. Just remember that bets only apply to 90 minutes, extra time is not counted.
If you want to navigate away from sports, you can get access to Paddy Power’s casino, slots, Roulette, games, blackjack, virtual games, bingo and poker all via quick links in the main menu. You can also find a range of free to play games like Hot Trot Jackpot & Hotshop jackpot to play on as well. What we really like about the mobile app is that every time we pick it up, it works. There is never any issue of the app crashing or not letting us put our bets on. It looks great, is easy to use and Paddy Power have a great reputation in the gambling world. It really is a great all round app and will appeal to newcomers to the betting world and to advanced punters.
The Paddy power mobile app does not slack either when it come to the variety of markets you can bet on. Let’s have a look at what’s available:

Paddy Power have put a lot of thought into their app and the hard work has paid off. In my testing it comes out on top of one of the best betting apps around. They offer everything from in-play betting to accumulators to enhanced odds on big events. You can even follow Paddy on twitter for some extra bonus specials. Paddy offers some wacky bets on entertainment and television as well as some other outlandish events, look out for them on the app as well. Market choice is really good on the app as you would expect and Paddy are normally up there with having some of the best odds and prices going. You are able to deposit to Paddy Power via credit or debit card as well as the popular PayPal, Skrill and Neteller all from the app too. There are some other e-wallets as an alternative but these are the most popular.
I am yet to run into any bugs or glitches with the app. So far so good, Paddy gets the green light from me! They offer a wide range of enhanced bets to their customers as well. They call these Power plays. They are only available for a certain amount of time when they go live so make sure and check them out regularly to grab up these great offers. Also I would recommend following them on twitter where they offer followers exclusive offers.
Don’t forget that for all new customers, you are able to receive a bonus on sign up with Paddy Power on the app or on www.paddypower.com. This is a significant boost to your account on sign up and they normally have one of the more generous sign up offers available
