Paddy is the best example of “united we stand” in betting business, as they started as a merger of all Irish bookies, who expanded in many countries and eventually merged with Betfair. Nowadays Paddy’s popularity is exceeding the British Isles, their main area of interest. They’re one of the first bookmakers who took advantage of odds as a commercial campaign, offering odds on bizarre events to attract publicity. Their services could be complete if they added an Asian Handicap option to their great number of alternative betting selections. They still offer their website only in English, by choice.

Paddy Power was established in 1988 and is Ireland’s biggest and most popular bookmaker. Paddy was the result of the merger of three existing Irish bookmakers, who decided to combine the 40 betting shops they had at that time, in order to create something huge. They managed it, since they operate a huge number of 356 betting shops and they are the third largest online bookmaker and sixth largest online gaming business in Britain and Ireland. On 14 May 2010, Paddy Power acquired a majority stake in Australian bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au, while they have also merged with Betfair.
The bookmaker is known for offering odds on controversial markets in order to gain publicity. For example, in November 2008, there were offered odds of 16/1 in the possibility that U.S. President Barack Obama 'would not finish' his first term (this was widely interpreted as his odds of assassination). Other controversial markets were «the first species to be driven to extinction by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico» and « potential extinction of the polar bear».
