It’s the worst punter experience in the world. You sign up to a new online bookmaker, sold by their brand, their advertising and of course their new customer sign up offer. We all want to feel valued as a new customer and naturally the start of the relationship is very important. As a new customers we want a smooth, easy to understand registration process, and of course, receive the advertised sign up promotion.
Fact is though, that an amazingly high number of new customers signing up to Sports Betting new customer offers do not receive what they think they are going to. And that can be for a host of reasons. Every promotion naturally has Terms and Conditions. We do not like them as new customers, but it’s important to ensure that we actually understand the key things that the bookmaker wants from us, before they provide the advertised welcome offer.
Firstly we validate on a daily basis the sign-up offers that Paddy Power Sports are running. In that way any promotion mentioned here on this page is live and available to new customers, 18+, resident in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
Secondly, Paddy Power to their credit have recently made their Sportsbook sign up process super smooth and fast. Be that on Mobile or PC, you can become a Paddy Power Sportsbook customer quickly and with little hassle. Paddy Power use a promo code mechanism within the new customer registration process, whereby if the correct code is quoted and a first qualifying bet is placed correctly, they will refund any losing first bet up to £20 or €20. And when we say refund, we mean as withdrawable cash rather than a free bet. It’s a unique and well thought through welcome for new sign ups.
In terms of key stages to ensure that you activate the current Paddy Power Sports Welcome Signup Offer, the first is to use one of the qualifying links on this page. The easiest way to access is via our ‘Reveal’ button at the top of the page, which also lists the live promo code needed to access the current sign up promotion.
By using one of our Sports sign up offer qualifying links, you will also ensure that you quote the correct Promo Code when registering. All of our sign up offer links pre-populate the Betfair registration page ‘Promo Code / Referral Code’ field with the latest YSKA01 promo code – ensuring you abide to the promotion Terms and Conditions. All you need to do is complete the registration form and press the ‘Join Now’ button to become a Paddy Power customer.
The next stage though, is the major stumbling block in terms of not following the right process so read on. The current Paddy Power Sports sign up promotion, works off the back of you, placing a first qualifying bet, which if it loses receives a full cash refund within an hour, up to a stake of £20 or €20. To do this, you must make a first deposit – and here within the Terms and Conditions is the key. To minimise fraudulent activity, Paddy Power state that only first deposits made by debit cards, credit cards and Paypal will count towards their current sign up offer. So do not transfer in first funds into your account by other e-wallets, be that Neteller or Skrill or any other service visible within Paddy Power’s Deposit Manager.
In terms of the all-important qualifying first bet, the requirements for this promotion are very simple as there is no minimum odds requirement. The first bet must be a £/€20 stake and applies to your first single bet, which can include doubles, trebles and accumulators. You cannot use Cash Out on the qualifying bet either.
From the point of placing your first qualifying bet, your initial £/€20 bet placed is 100% guaranteed on the basis that even if it loses, Paddy Power will refund the bet – not with a free bet but in withdrawable cash.
