Paddy Power pay out on white Christmas across Ireland

It's a Christmas miracle!


Here at Paddy Power we’ve done a lot of mad things in our time, but making it snow on December 25th is beyond even our reach.

With morale at an all-time low this week, as the public struggles to catch the Christmas spirit instead of COVID-19, we felt moved to do the impossible. Almost.

Instead, we’ve opted for a different type of gift this morning, paying out on all bets placed for snowfall in Ireland on December 25th.


We’ve consistently seen a surge in the number of punters holding out hope for snowfall, despite Met Eireann putting a dampener on things and promising nothing but buckets of rain at temps of a balmy nine degrees.

Prior to the bumper payout, odds were available for snowfall to be recorded in Cork (10/1) Dublin Airport (4/1) and Belfast (6/4).

And punters who indulged in having a flutter on the chances of a flurry occurring on the 25th woke up to find a surprise Christmas bonus in their Paddy Power accounts on December 24th, just in time for their last-minute dash around the shops.

If that doesn’t exemplify the true Christmas spirit, I don’t know what does.
