Welcome to our Paddy Power user guide. Here we will guide you through every aspect of navigating the Paddy Power app to be able to perform the basic functions efficiently.
So if you’re curious to know how to place a bet on the Paddy Power app, check free bets, or withdraw funds, keep reading down this page.
How To Place A Bet On The Paddy Power App
To place a bet on the Paddy Power app, the user must have a funded account or have a free bet available.
In this example, the user is looking to place a £5 accumulator on the upcoming Premier League matches.
From the Paddy Power app’s home page, the user can go ahead and tap on the football icon.
As the user is looking to make multiple picks from the same league, they can tap on the competitions tab to find the league.
The English Premier League now appears and can be tapped on to reveal the upcoming fixtures.
fixtures that are of interest occur on the 6th August. Scrolling down the page will reveal more fixtures.
The user can now browse all of the fixtures and start to make selections by tapping on the relevant price. When a selection has been made, the price will turn green and a minimised bet slip bar will appear at the bottom.
As an accumulator is the desired bet here, more picks can now be made until seen as fit to bet on.
As more selections are added, the combined odds of all picks will flash and show temporarily in the bet slip bar.
In this example the user has been left happy after making five selections. They can now tap on the bet slip bar to set a stake.
The bet slip will now open, showing each individual selection. Singles can be placed by using the stake fields underneath the relevant selection.
Multiple bet options show at the bottom of the bet slip and the player will need to set a stake in the accumulator field by tapping on it.
As it is a £5 bet we are looking to place, we can go ahead and input £5 using the numeric keypad that pops up. The potential returns will now show, based on the stake amount set. All that is left now is to tap on the “Place bets” button to confirm and commit to the bet.
A small confirmation summary will now be presented. The confirmation can either be closed down at this point to carry on browsing the Paddy Power app, or the app can now be shut down completely, for the focus to be directed elsewhere.

How To Verify A Paddy Power Account
There are a couple of reasons why Paddy Power may ask for further information beyond the registration process. These are:
- Affordability checks – Paddy Power have a legal responsibility to make sure players are playing within their means. Therefore, if a player is betting big stakes, or has suddenly increased the amount they are gambling, Paddy Power may ask to see source of funds.
- Identity checks – Paddy Power are also required to ensure players are of legal age for their territory, which in the UK is 18. There may be a situation where the digital checks that Paddy Power do in the background to link bank accounts and home addresses may bring back insufficient confirmation. Therefore, proof of address, bank statements, or photo ID may be asked for.
If documentation is requested, Paddy Power will be specific in what will needed to be supplied.
To upload the documents from the Paddy Power app, head to the user settings from the home page.
Scroll down and towards the bottom there will be a section labelled account details. From this section, tap on the upload documents box.

The photos/documents will then be sent for the paddy Power verification team to review.

- Match result
- Total goals
- Correct score
- First goal scorer

Other markets and sports have significantly less maximum payouts attached to them. If you are making up big accumulators on a certain sport or market, it is worthwhile checking the Paddy Power help centre to make sure you are not exceeding the maximum payout for it.
