Designed to make placing a bet even more instantaneous and straightforward, the app effectively enables you to send and receive text messages to and from Paddy Power without the need to access the Paddy Power website or mobile app. Essentially, Paddy Power becomes your mate, albeit one with a lot of information on your favourite football team, players, race meetings and horses, and who is prepared to accept wagers from you on said teams and horses. Oh, and who’ll provide you with regular updates and news on your bets and preferred teams and horses. Not bad, eh?
How it works is this: download the Paddy Power Messenger app free of charge from iTunes to your iPhone. If you’re a new customer then merely complete the simple registration form and away you go. If you’re already a Paddy Power registered user then handily your login details will be the same and away you go too. An Android version is currently in development and will be available for Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Google Nexus devices shortly.
Next up: tell Paddy Power what your favourites are. This can be anything from broad likes such as ‘The Premier League’ and ‘The Cheltenham Festival’ to specific teams, players, horses or jockeys. Grade your favourites as well according to your level of interest and Paddy Power will accordingly alter the level of information and updates you receive. Naturally you will receive more text messages and betting information and news on your preferences with the highest priority. Adding to your preferences or amending the level of your alerts is simple too and can be done at any time.
