Three years later Paddy Power Games and Casino was launched. Fast forward to 2009, and Paddy Power acquired Sportsbet. As well as that, it acquired TVG Horse Racing & a technology team in Romania who are now called Betfair Romania. In 2009, it became the first betting company with a mobile betting app. In 2012, it invented the ‘cash out’ concept. On 2 February 2016, it merged with Betfair to create Paddy Power Betfair. On the internet, Paddy Power offers sports betting, online poker, online bingo, online casino and online games.
