Whilst we aim to keep the reviews up to date in a constantly changing environment that is not always possible.  This is especially true of bonus and freebet information which MUST be checked on the Gambling sites themselves for exact T&Cs.  If any information appears incorrect or contrary to your experience please contact reviews@thegamblingtimes.com so we can update it.

Paddypower is one of the best sportsbooks you will find online. They have excellent customer support with a dedicated help centre, free phone number and 24hr E-mail support. Plus if you need to call them you get to speak to a nice Irish person. They have very frequent cash back promotions which are well worth taking part in as well as Horse Racing Best Odds Guaranteed.  They are better than other sites due to the Novelty/Special bets they offer such as the winner of Big Brother, who will be X-mas No1, etc, etc. Withdrawals are unlimited, free of charge and received the same day, if not within minutes to Neteller or Moneybookers.
