Frequently asked questions

It says Paddy Power is up, but it does not work for me?

It is possible that our Paddy Power monitor will indicate that Paddy Power is up while you are unable to access the website. Here are some steps to take when this happens::

  1. Our systems can determine if Paddy Power is working in the UK. You can run additional tests for other locations here or here to confirm whether the site may be down in other locations
  2. Paddy Power restricts access to its website in countries where it is not licensed to operate. To determine if you are being blocked for attempting to access Paddy Power from a restricted location use a VPN to view Paddy Power from the UK or Ireland. You do this at your own risk as this may be illegal in your location and violate Paddy Power’s T&Cs.
  3. Paddy Power will report any major website outages on its Twitter account. So check in on Twitter to see if there have been any recent downtime reports.
  4. Turn off your VPN. VPNs can sometimes prevent you from accessing specific websites, particularly if the website has been set up to block the IP ranges used by the most popular VPNs.
  5. Review your local access settings. This means checking security settings on the device you are using to see whether firewall, parental control or anti-virus settings are actively blocking a connection to Paddy Power.
  6. Reset your Internet connection. If you are connecting using mobile data turn your device on and off to reset your connection. If you’re connecting via w-fi, turn the wi-fi router on and off at the wall plug and try access the site again.
  7. Clear your cache and cookies, as these can interfere with content loading on your device. You can find out how to clear the cache and cookies of any browser here.
