Ireland’s biggest bookmaker Paddy Power is carrying the torch for Olympic punters with the launch of special offers for London 2012 which left other leading bookies stuck in their blocks.
Paddy Power is famous around the world for its ground breaking Money Back Specials which have proved so popular with sports punters that every major online bookmaker has tried to imitate the idea in one form or another.
They love a challenge at Paddy Towers, if in doubt see the successful outcome of their refusal to stand down over a cheeky poster campaign. While they may be flattered at their competitors copying the idea of Money Back Specials, Paddy Power looks in no mood to settle for anything other than Gold in its specialist field for the London 2012 Olympics which start this week.
Just look at this range of offers, covering four of the biggest events at this year’s Olympics and you can see the challenge facing the opposition:
Olympics Record Breaker Special: If a world record is broken in the Mens 100m, 200m or 4x 100m relay finals, Paddy Power will refund all losing outright bets on the athlete/team that finishes second.
Olympics Football - Bore Draw: If any match ends 0-0, losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles on the match will be refunded.
Olympic Boxing Countback Special: If a boxer loses his fight on a countback, all losing match bets on the fight will be refunded.
Olympic Tennis 3rd Set Special: If the 3rd set goes to 6-6, all losing match bets on the player will be refunded.
