Paddy pays out over €500k in weekend of refunds

A top-class weekend of sporting action saw Paddy Power refund punters more than €500,000 in horse racing, football and darts Money-Back specials.

Ruby Walsh got the ball rolling at Cheltenham on Friday as Paddy refunded all losing single stakes on Wetak (2nd to Shooters Wood) and River Maigue (2nd to Dodging Bullets). While on Saturday backers of  Vasco Du Ronceray (2nd to Far West) and Walkon (2nd to Al Ferof) also hit us where it hurt. In the pocket.

Punters heaped more misery on Paddy as two extra-place specials clicked at Cheltenham on Sunday with Cloudy Bob (25/1) in the 1.45pm and Glam Gerry (14/1) in the 2.50pm taking us to the cleaners.

While Arsenal were busy dismantling Spurs’ season and giving Andre-Villas Boas a few sleepless nights – Paddy Power punters were counting their money after Gareth Bale’s goal kicked in an anytime goalscorer Money-Back special.

Bale’s 71st-minute strike was of little consolation to Spurs’ fans in their 5-2 loss in the North London derby but left neutrals who backed the Welshman to score quids in.

Meanwhile, six in-play 170 check-outs have hit the bullseye in the PDC Grand Slam of Darts for fans of the arrers.
