About us

An international betting and gaming operator taking the industry by storm. Game on.

Paddy Power Betfair was formed in 2016 following the merger of Paddy Power and Betfair. Our vision is to be a world-class sports betting and gaming operator. To do this, we focus on being online, mobile and sports-led, and using our enhanced scale to build on our brands’ No.1 position in key markets across the world. More than that, we foster a collaborative environment where the quick-thinking and inventive can thrive.

What we stand for

Our values

Relentless Will to Win

We strive to stay ahead of the game and achieve more for our customers and each other.

Collaboration

We win by having the best people, working well together and building strong relationships.

Integrity

We take pride in doing what’s right. No exceptions.

Agility

We adapt with purpose and at pace, and thrive amid change.

Low Ego

We take our work seriously but not ourselves, and never believe our own hype.

Our brands

Brand power

Our brands pack quite a punch. They lead the way across Europe, the USA, Australia and the UK. They’re disruptive, inventive and always one step ahead of the competition.

Today we operate four main sports betting and gaming brands: Paddy Power, Betfair, Sportsbet and TVG, which bring excitement to life for five million customers worldwide. We also have other brands such as TIMEFORM, Draft and Airton Risk.

We deliver the best sports data and up-to-the-minute info on horse and greyhound racing. This is why we’re gaining more and more clients every year, from newspapers to betting operators. 


Betfair broke the mould when it was founded, pioneering an online betting Exchange in 2000 that allowed customers to set their own odds for the first time. We’ve been just as disruptive ever since. An online gaming and betting operator envied for our creativeness and agility, we’re always upping our game, and throwing the gauntlet down to our competitors.

Paddy Power is one of the most distinctive consumer brands in Europe. A multichannel betting operator, we have a world-class online operation, over 600 stores across the UK and Ireland, an ever-growing online customer base and marketing that’s well known for its cheek, not to mention some of the most advanced and entertaining online games, from poker to roulette. It’s a place where the adaptable and the bold go far.

 

TVG is a US TV channel dedicated to horseracing, operating alongside an online betting network active in 35 states. Whether we’re broadcasting race analysis and handicapping tips or handling over $2 billion of bets every year, we’re always looking for new ways to grow with the fledgling online betting market in the US.

The Australian online betting market is growing fast. And Sportsbet is leading the way. Disruptive marketing around national sports events, clever new products and a focus on making betting fun are all part of the approach. Our team works across Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin.

Timeform has launched the careers of some of the horseracing media’s biggest names. We deliver the best sports data and up-to-the-minute info on horse and greyhound racing which is why we’re gaining more and more clients every year, from newspapers to betting operators. Always driving forward new ideas like the launch of one of horseracing’s most popular apps, we combine journalistic creativity with cutting-edge technology.

 

DRAFT is an early-stage operator in the US Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) market. DFS operates a bit like Fantasy Football in the UK, but is played for money and over shorter timeframes. DRAFT is based in New York and operates its games with a ‘Snake Draft’ system, which is quick, mobile friendly and fairer to the recreational customer.

Airton Risk is a niche division of Paddy Power Betfair. We help sporting organisations, retailers and sports sponsors manage their risk. Part of this is our Player Bonus Cover, which allows our clients to remove the adverse financial impact of paying performance-related bonuses to their players. It’s natural for clubs, associations and sponsors to want to incentivise their teams with financial rewards while also knowing there will be no unwanted surprises.

Our history

How did we get to where we are today? With hard work, boldness and an innovative spirit — plus a little bit of mischief. The story of PPB is a coming together of two betting companies who never stopped creating new and exciting ways for customers to bet on what they love.

You can see some of our standout moments here.

Giving back

Integrity. It’s vital for any business. So when the FTSE4Good Index rated us in the top 9% of all travel and leisure companies for Corporate Social Responsibility, we were thrilled.

From supporting sports from the grassroots up to organising charity runs, our CSR programme gets everyone involved.

Diversity

Fair Game

At Paddy Power Betfair we know that a fair-minded, inclusive workplace makes for more engaged employees, which creates a stronger, better organisation for all of us.

Being spread over numerous locations, we understand the importance of valuing each employee’s unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints. To continue to promote this, we’ve created ‘Fair Game’, a new diversity team who help to create and maintain a level playing field for all.

Why are we doing it?

For ourselves: There’s no escaping the fact that diverse teams consistently outperform homogeneous teams. Talent and capability are not found in one particular demographic. What’s more, having a good mix makes for a more fun, interesting and inspiring place to work.

For our customers: A diverse workplace is better placed to understand customer needs and wants, which makes all of our outputs better, no matter where you work.

For our industry: As an industry leader, it is important that we continuously strive to maintain and grow a diverse and inclusive environment whilst also ensuring that we set the standards in ethical conduct and corporate responsibility.

Ministry of Fun

We have some seriously social people from across the business who come up with plans to make working here as lively as possible. From installing dartboards and organising our Office Games and charity events, to adding the odd Pilates class or pool tournament, they’re all across our business making sure there’s something fun for everyone.

How Paddy Power
Betfair are you?

Working here takes bold ideas and the courage to see them through. Self-belief and flexibility. And the confidence to tackle any challenge, no matter how difficult.
