Promos and Bonuses

It is not very usual to find a bookmaker that does not offer any sort of promos to its clients. If such bookmakers exist, then they are doomed because they are slowly planning for their downfall knowingly or unknowingly. Fortunately, Paddy Power is well aware of that and this is why it does not fall short of promos to offer its clients in New Zealand as they are given welcome free bet bonus. Also, any new punter from New Zealand who places their first bet of €10 can get up to €30 on free bets of €10 per bet.

Safety and Security

For safety purposes, Paddy Power added some few steps on the authentication purposes to ensure that the right persons or punters access the right accounts. This has greatly reduced the issues that used to arise due to in appropriate access to the customers’ accounts.

To reinforce the security of customer’s sensitive data, a new technology called SSL technology was incorporated into the Paddy Power systems. This technology ensures that any data that is being transmitted over the internet is highly encrypted to safeguard those data. That way, the hackers find it very difficult to retrieve that information or make sense out of what they obtain/retrieve.

They are Visa Card, MasterCard, Maestro, Skrill, PayPal, Neteller, Bank Transfer, and Visa Electron. The only two currencies that are accepted here are the British Pounds and Euros. Then again, the above-mentioned methods do accept both deposit and withdrawal transactions.

There are limits when it comes to the minimum and maximum allowed deposits or withdrawal which by the way depends on the methods that the punters opt to go with. Usually, the Bank Transfer is the one option that has limits that stretch past the values that have been set by other options.
