Paddy Power Vertification

Published: 15/11/2018

Opening an account at Paddy Power is a very simple process. The next step is to have your account and information verified by Paddy Power for compliance purposes.

Online gaming regulations exist to protect members and betting sites from falling victim to fraudulent activities. They also ensure members are not using Paddy Power to practice illegal schemes like money laundering.

How Paddy Power Verifies Accounts

The average Paddy Power member goes through a short, electronic verification process. Paddy Power will ask for a few pieces of information and will verify the information digitally. In some cases, Paddy Power will need to do further verification to ensure a complete review.

Extended Verification

In some cases, Paddy Power will need to do further verification before clearing a member for play. In these instances, Paddy Power will request you send photos of the documentation via email to the customer support team. This documentation often includes one or more of the following:

  • A Photo ID (passport or licence)
  • A Utility Bill
  • A Bank Statement
  • A Credit or Debit Card (photos should include the name and only the last four digits)

Things to Watch for When Submitting Documentation

It is important that if you enter an extended verification process, you send appropriate documentation to Paddy Power for review. If the requested documentation is rejected, your account could be suspended and require more time to unlock.

If you register a card with Paddy Power, ensure the billing address on the card matches the billing address you provided Paddy Power at the account opening. Also, ensure the name on all documentation send in matches the name you registered your Paddy Power account with.

Paddy Power will suspend your account if you registered while located in a country restricted by geographic location. Many countries consider online gambling illegal and Paddy Power observes those laws.

Customer Support is Available to Those Having Difficulty with Verification

If you are struggling to complete the verification process, consider reaching out to the Paddy Power customer support group. The customer support group can walk you through opportunities to get your account verification resolved. When calling for verification purposes, call from a landline so Paddy Power can determine you are not in a restricted country.
