Paddy Power Cricket Betting

Paddy Power is Ireland’s largest bookmaker, and has a chain of high street stores across Ireland and the UK. Founded in 1988, the company launched its first online bookmaking site in 2000. Paddy Power Online is registered to a holding company in the Isle of Man, and is licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission.

Accounts can be opened from anywhere in the world, although Paddy Power displays a list of countries in which there are national restrictions on internet betting.

Betting On Cricket at Paddy Power

Cricket is featured in the A-Z of Sports listed on the left-hand sidebar of the main sports page. Opening the cricket tab reveals a list of the various events or competitions covered by Paddy Power – specific games, current and future tournaments, country cricket and so on. For a large event that is under way, such as the Cricket World Cup or the IPL, there may be several different betting areas listed in the sidebar, making it quicker to identify the type of bet you are looking for.

Once the event has been selected from the left-hand sidebar – say a one day game – the details of one main market are displayed in the centre of the page (such as match result). Additional markets for the same match are either listed above or can be revealed by clicking on a number tab showing the total number of markets for that event.

Odds for all markets can be displayed in either decimal or fractional form. Clicking on the odds in a given market selects the bet and moves it into a virtual betting slip to the left of the page. The virtual betting slip will indicates when there are possible combination bets available such as doubles, trebles, trixies and so on.

Paddy Power Cricket Betting Markets

Paddy Power offers a large number of markets for cricket betting. For example a one day international may have 28 separate markets available (not including the live betting markets), ranging from the match result to the method of the first dismissal.

Live betting markets focus on a smaller number of straightforward markets, such as partnership runs, next man out and total team runs.

Futures bets are available for a wide range of tournaments and competitions, such as County Cricket, Twenty20 World Cup, and the 2013 Ashes series.

Depositing and Withdrawing Funds from Paddy Power

Once registered with an account, funds can be deposited using debit or credit card (including the Entropay prepaid Visa card), or via an online payment service, such as PayPal, Neteller or Moneybookers. Online deposits can also be made using the prepaid cards from Paysafecard or Ukash. Paddy Power also allows registered users to deposit cash directly into their online account through their high street shops. All of these methods are processed immediately and funds transferred into your Paddy Power account.

Deposits can also be made via bank transfer and cheque, although these take several days to process and appear in the account.
Whichever deposit method is used the minimum amount is £5.

Withdrawals can be made using all of the methods listed above, although some taker longer to process than others, and some providers, such as Entropay, charge small fees for withdrawals. To withdraw cash directly from a Paddy Power shop it is necessary to first register for a Paddy Power card.

Full details about the depositing and withdrawing funds are clearly provided on the Paddy Power help menu.
