How does Paddy Power’s Deposit Limit work and how do I activate it?

Limit the amount you can lodge to your account so you can’t gamble with more than this.


We ask you to always bet sensibly and within your budget. To help you stay in control, you can specify a daily, weekly or monthly deposit limit. Gambling is supposed to be fun and should be considered as a form of entertainment like going to the cinema – not as a money-making exercise.

Chasing losses is dangerous, but you can put a stop to this and other bad practices on your Paddy Power account by setting a deposit limit. Once set, we will warn you when you’re trying to deposit more than your limit, whether online or on your mobile. The deposit limit is not affected by any transfers of money between wallets or by withdrawals.

If you increase the amount or frequency (making the limit less restrictive), it will not take effect for 7 days. Decreases take immediate effect.

Always gamble safely and remember, when the fun stops. Stop. Safer gambling means you are having fun and feel in control of how you play. If your gambling is creating financial stress, anxiety, depression, or affecting your life in a negative way overall, then it may develop into a problem.
