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

Set a limit on the amount you can lose or transfer for a period of your choice.


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 loss 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 practises on your Paddy Power account by setting a loss limit. Once set, a limit on the amount you can lose or transfer for a period of your choosing will be placed on your account, whether online or on your mobile.

If you increase the amount or frequency, 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.
