Unable to access Paddypower in France

Using my iPhone I am trying to access my account at Paddypower.com while on holiday in France. I can get to this through my iPhone on my WiFi at home. But I am getting the message “Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server”.

Can someone please advise how I can get a secure connection?

Re: Unable to access Paddypower in France

several uk bookies block access to france. they also are wise to those using vpn's too.

a check here shows france is indeed on paddy powers ban list. https://helpcenter.paddypower.com/app/answers/detail/p/6/a_id/2

Re: Unable to access Paddypower in France

Hello

Be aware that due to rules / regulations regarding gambling in different countries this is the reason that PaddyPower do not allow use of their site, so you may not be able to get them to change the rules.

Have a look at https://www.connexionfrance.com/Archive/Web-law-bans-UK-betting-sites

Although that one is a bit outdated there is also https://iclg.com/practice-areas/gambling-laws-and-regulations/france which is more uptodate.
