Paddy Power Poker

Hi all,

My name is Paul and Iíve been given the go-ahead by the powers-that-be to introduce myself as Paddy Power Pokerís representative on 2+2. Our customer service agents are available 24 / 7 by phone, email or via the manager chat button on the poker client, but Iíll be happy to answer any memberís questions or concerns if youíd like to contact me on 2+2.

Some background info on Paddy Power Poker: our parent company Paddy Power is Irelandís largest sportsbook and a publicly-traded company, we are Irelandís largest online poker room and are part of the iPoker network (which does not accept US-resident players unfortunately).

We participate in the 2+2 bonus program and Iíll be answering questions on that in the relevant forum as well. If you have any questions, just let me know and Iíll try to get back with an answer within a few days.

Thanks,

PPPionapaul

It's an Irish thing. Paddy Power is based in Ireland.

Hi repulse,

As strongsauce mentioned, 'Paddy Power' is a fairly common Irish name; the parent company was set up in 1988 by the merger of three high-street bookmaker chains and the name is a mixture of those three names. Some of the Power family are still involved in the company and Paddy Power himself is our communications manager!

Re: Paddy Power Poker

Thanks for the heads-up, and good luck.

How many Paddy Power players typically play at any one time? I know you're part of the iPoker network... but do you have any idea how many of those are PP players?

Hi Paul B,

I'm a Paul B as well; there are lots of us around the place!

Good question; there are a number of things that set us apart from other iPoker skins:

- Our C*A*S*H VIP programme; each iPoker skin sets up their own customised loyalty programme, so each has the scope to be as generous as they want. We have recently revamped our programme and think it is legitimately one of the most generous on the network.

- PPP-specific promotions; we run frequently raked hands races and MTT promos for our customers, which cannot be entered by other iPoker players. We often tie these into our live events (the Irish Open and the Irish Winter Festival) and given our irreverant style and sense of humour, it's a lot of fun coming up with various ideas for these! For example we recently had a 'Just A Jack Off' promo and will be debuting 'Back That Ace Up' sometime soon...

- Our exclusive qualifiers to our live events; we listen to what our players want and try to tailor our qualifying tournaments accordingly. For example, we've recently introduced some ticket-only satellites to our Irish Winter Festival for our players who want to play in October but don't particularly want all the bells-and-whistles of the full $4,500 package.

I'll think of some other things to add over the next few days.
