    Exactly, if they cant cope with the volume of people on a normal Wednesday how can they cope during Cheltenham,you dont want the site to go down when your about to stick €100 on a horse and it ends up winning!!!!

    I suspect this is a backlash from the mafia for paddy power daring to take bets on the Euros :p

    How long has it been down since today? Now saying to me that it "should return at 16:30 GMT, 7th of March 2012"

    Not good 6 days before 4 of the biggest betting days of the year!! Dunno can they be trusted now for Cheltenham.

    should be fun next week when paddy crashes minutes before
    the gold cup and then it'll take 10mins just to place a bet
    over the fone
    ill be with bet365 all week for it for all the offers and the possibility
    of free bets on races if i manage to choose a few winners


    on another note, what a joke of an offer on their website
    an offer for retards or someone who likes throwing away money

    Place a single stake of £/€10 or more on Virtual Horse Racing.
    You will receive a £/€5 Cheltenham Free Bet INSTANTLY
    Giddy up and choose your horse and get ready to cheer it on!

    say you have it as a 1/2shot and are hoping the traders will offer higher

    What's up with Paddy Power's live help recently? Have they cut back on staff?

    50th in the queue now. Tried earlier and similarly high position. Waited 15 minutes and left.

    Edit: And I'm still waiting... 50 minutes later and I'm 7th in the queue.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 180 ✭✭ ConorBFC3


    Fucking bullshit this! Finally got connected and ended up getting re-queued. I have now been re-queued six times...


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,186 ✭✭✭ Juwwi

    They are a joke of a firm sure this time of night should be quiet for them.

    I have to say I have found there are real issues with the Paddypower website from my laptop for the last month or so and the brother had the same issue yesterday.

    Im not sure what there up to but the web pages are so slow to navigate and
    croashes a lot.

    Considering they were only highlighting how there profits from online business had improved last year you would think they would invest
    in keeping there website runnung smoothly.

    I am getting discouraged by the whey it runs at present and will
    consider other sites if they dont improve.
