Powers website was down on Saturday. Had an email off them yesterday evening with an apology, and a €50 free bet.

I am sure there are plenty that have nothing but disdain for them, but it's hard to knock that. Put the rest to shame when it comes to PR.

You are obviously a valued customer and also quite happy to help with their PR.

I certainly did not get a free bet and 3 others that I asked did not receive one either.

I got one for €20

They gave me a 100 free bet,and a 200 free casino bet.
Report Rocketfingers April 16, 2012 1:25 PM BST
Got nothing, but it think even if i got a €20 free bet it would be above my max allowed. I'd still like to get one and give it away to one of the less fortunate punters on here.

Certainly not doing my brains Win only. Not gonna start throwing amounts around, but more than holding my own on with them.

Assumed everyone on the site on Sat would of gotten something.

I would imagine you need to have an account with Paddy Power to receive anything.
Win Only why so hostile,Kiddo was only relating a good news story.

I got a €20 free bet. Internet went down, phone lines were jammed. I went onto the live chat to see what was going on and i was 749th in the queue!Same thing happened with Spoilsports last year.

I had a couple of bets with them on Saturday , on the National , at about 3.30 I think . But no freebies .  Those who got the freebies , are you restricted in any way with them , eg knock backs , no BOG etc ?
Report kiddo112 April 17, 2012 8:11 AM BST
My a/c is not restricted Kelly

after a email to pps- i got a €50 free bet.

I suggest all who didnt get one follow suit

Thanks Paddy

^ they must have realised that you were a big loser too then!

Kelly, I'm not restricted in any way with Powers.

I placed 2 bets on Saturday morning so I presume that's why I got the freebie. A few months ago there were similar problems with their site but I wasn't on it at all on the day in question. I didn't get a free bet that day so presumably they only give freebies to people who actually log in to the site at some stage on Saturday.
