Online is Where the Future Is
Online is one of the motors of our growth here at Paddy Power. We believe in putting our future on a solid foundation, so we invest heavily in having cutting edge online skills in-house. From web development and design to analytics, marketing and planning – We have a buzzing online department brimming with top talent.
We remain encouraged by our prospects in the medium term for expansion in continental Europe, both as a result of countries that have already moved towards liberalisation and by enforcement action of EU Law by the European Commission.
We launched our Spanish language online betting site in August 2007, and this business represents investments for the medium term, as we tackle the significant challenge of attempting to replicate our successful penetration of the UK online market, in the face of regulatory, competitive and cultural hurdles.
