The Paddy Power web experience has been quite seamlessly designed to fit into the smaller screen of an Android mobile device. That means you have two choices when using your Android device, the Paddy Power Android app or the Paddy Power mobile site version. Ultimately these are practically the same thing, but getting the Paddy Power Android app just requires going through a few additional steps to achieve the same end-goal. Either way, you will first need to open an account to claim your introductory welcome before going mobile – which can be done using the link below.
First, claim the intro offer
From either phone/tablet or computer, visit the paddypower mobile site by tapping here and then set up a new account by following the on-screen instructions. (T&Cs apply, 18+ New customers only). The introductory offer is usually as straightforward as it sounds with Paddy. Once you’re up and running with an account you may choose to continue to use the Paddy Power Android app ‘mobile site’ to place your bets. To download and install the app for Android, see below.
Download the Paddy Power Android App
There are different options available to get Paddy Power installed on Android devices in the form of an app. You can, of course, carry on using the mobile web version or opt to download & install an app (APK file).
Please note that when you download and install an Android APK file, your device may ask you to adjust your security settings to allow apps from ‘unknown sources’. If you have previously altered your security settings to allow apps from outside the Play Store, however, then it should install without interruption.
The main app that comes highly recommended is to use the BookieBoost app for Android. It not only gives you full access to Paddy Power (and to a lot of the other reputable bookmakers), but BookieBoost has other features like betting calculators, live sports scores, fixtures and results. Along with this there are also the special offers from all major bookies such as Price Boosts and Money Back Specials. Get BookieBoost from either the official site or by downloading the app right here from Betting Appstore (below):
(BookieBoost – includes the Paddy Power app)
Like we mentioned previously, to download BookieBoost onto your Android mobile or tablet you may need to enable security settings to install any apps that made available from outside of Google Play. The BookieBoost APK download did used to be available on Google Play but the big G tightened their policy on betting apps even more than they were previously. So now you’ll only find it on specialist betting app stores like this one. You can also get BookieBoost on your Android phone or tablet from other third party app stores like the Getjar web site, which is another well known alternative app store. Getjar may at first seem a bit strange if you have never seen it before but it is just another app store that can be used by Android devices.
BookieBoost accesses the Paddy Power mobile web app when you use its shortcuts from the ‘My Bookies’ menu button. You can also get Paddy Power’s separate installable app from links on the paddypower .com site but it is just exactly the same as the mobile web app so there doesn’t seem to be much point. We have found that some betting apps are prone to crashing or hanging and this is something that you will definitely not want to happen – especially if it’s at a crucial moment before an event starts or if you’re sweating over a cash-out.
About the Paddy Power Android App
Paddy Power has been the best known bookie in Ireland for some time and the Paddy Power Android app does not disappoint in our view, with possibly the best betting app design we’ve reviewed – and that’s in spite of any introductory offer which is really just a ‘nice to have’. Also, we found that the mobile site itself works similarly well, providing the same wide variety of sports and games to bet on.
After thoroughly putting the Paddy Power Android app through it’s paces, our review team concluded that it is certainly one of the best Android betting apps on the market. It has a ton of features, and these seem to increase each time you use it. PP has made it very straightforward to claim the intro offer – which you will need of course to be of legal gambling age in your country to use. Money Back Specials can be particularly useful in certain situations, that’s for sure.
