Paddy Power have five responsible gambling tools to help customers stay in controls. If you are finding it hard to keep track of time and finances while betting, some of these tools may well come in handy.
This page goes through how to use each of the tools available.
How To Access Responsible Gambling Tools On The Paddy Power App
We will now demonstrate how to get to the responsible gambling tools on the Paddy Power app using an iPhone. However the steps shown remain the same, regardless of device.
From the home page, we head to the user account settings by tapping on the user icon.
Within the list of options that show, there should be a section labelled safer gambling. If this section is not visible, then the list may need to be scrolled down. From this section, tap on the safer gambling tools option.
All five of the safer gambling tools should now be listed.
How To Set A Deposit Limit
The deposit limit tool is the first tool on the list. A summary of any existing limits will show. To change the current limit(s), tap on the “Edit Deposit Limit” button.
From here daily, weekly and/or monthly deposit limits can be set. To choose the time limit, tap on the appropriate tab.
When the correct time period is selected, tapping on the deposit limit box will cause the numeric pad to pop up for a new limit to be entered.
Enter the new limit desired and then tap on the “Set Deposit Limit” button to complete the setup.
if the new limit is less than the limit set before, the new amount will be activated immediately. If the deposit limit request is to raise the limit, the change will take 7 days to come in to effect.
This gives users plenty of time to think over the decision before the new limit is implemented.
How To Set A Loss Limit On The Paddy Power App
Loss limits can help customers from tumbling out of control when experiencing a bad run of form. These can be set over different periods of time and across select services offered by Paddy Power. To get started, tap on the Loss limit button.
Three editable fields will now be present. These are.
- Products – the services to be applied to the loss limit (sports, casino, etc.)
- Time period – week, day, month or year.
- Limit amount – the desired loss limit amount.
Enter the appropriate details in to each field, depending on preference. Now tap on the Continue button.
a small summary will now show, rounding up the request that is being made for the customer to review. If they are happy that the summary matches their wishes for a loss limit, then the “Confirm” button can be tapped to set the limit in place.

Not using the tools you can’t. There are pre set amounts only to choose from. Requests for amounts outside of these parameters can be requested to the Paddy Power support team, but these will need to be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Not at all. There are many reasons why gambling tools should be used. For example, going on holiday for a fortnight and not wanting to be distracted. We encourage all gamblers to use these tools, if they feel they can help their circumstance.
