Paddy Power Casino Review Continued...
Paddy Power Casino Games
There are plenty of games on offer at Paddy Power Casino and even more on offer if you choose to download the software rather than take the instant play option. You will find a multitude of slots games, some with progressive jackpots which stretch up into the millions of pounds, alongside the usual blackjack, roulette and assorted other card and table offerings.
The casino provides the chance to play a wide range of branded games, based around icons like Frankie Dettori, top television shows such as Britain’s Got Talent and movie franchises including Rocky and The Incredible Hulk. Other offerings from Playtech, such as Ice Run, Wu Long and Plenty o’ Fortune are also available, and a new collaboration with Scientific Games in the summer of 2015 has seen Paddy Power’s portfolio expand significantly.
The games are fine; they run smoothly and offer decent payouts, but there are none of the exciting new breed of slots which do things a little differently, and that is a shame for a company which prides itself on doing just that in its other guises.
Everything here is particularly traditional and that’s likely to be a positive for many who enjoy their slots as they’ve always played them. The problem is that tastes are changing and, for a new breed of gamers, Paddy Power Casino will seem a little staid. Although playing these games is a solid experience, there’s nothing to get the pulse racing and set Paddy Power apart from the competition, which is a bit unfortunate.
The mobile site and app have a good amount of games available, with roughly 60 slots and table games. The option to play for free will please new players who like to get a feel for the games before they deposit; not all mobile casinos offer that facility. The games sometimes take a while to load and very occasionally there is a bit of sticking in the gameplay, but generally everything flows well.
Paddy Power Casino Bonuses and Promotions
New players can earn up to £/€500 in bonuses over their first three deposits. The first step is to put down anywhere between £/€10 and £/€200 to receive a 100% match, while the second deposit will result in a 50% match up to £/€100 and the third will land you another 100% match up to the value of £/€200. The full bonus must be wagered 20 times (including the deposit itself) within 30 days of registering before winnings can be withdrawn, while you only have a maximum of 14 days for each individual bonus. The promotion isn’t available if you use Skrill/Moneybookers or Neteller, so consider using Visa, Mastercard or Paypal instead if you want to take advantage of the welcome bonus. New players also have the option to pick up a free £/€10 bonus before depositing as they get a feel for the site, although this is subject to a 40 x wagering requirement before it can be withdrawn.
There are a few daily promotions that come round each week, a loyalty and VIP scheme and the occasional big ticket prize to be won, like a five-star trip to see the Monaco Grand Prix, which makes dropping in to visit the site from time to time worthwhile.
Paddy Power runs a solid, if unexciting, casino which has enough on offer to keep you entertained for a while. Traditionalists will love it, but those who have sampled the fantastic new games by NetEnt and Thunderkick, amongst others, at different casinos may be a little bored.
Extracting your winnings from your welcome bonus is a tall order, but there are other promotions available which are more tempting. Paddy Power is a trusted name in the gambling industry, and that counts for a lot when making a choice about which online casino to frequent. However, it could be improved with an injection of the sort of fun which befits the brand.
