We live in a fast-paced world.
You can have a hamburger in less than one minute – providing you’ve no taste-buds.
In an instant, you can express an opinion online that’s just as irrelevant as it is in the real world.
In a matter of seconds, you could watch pretty much whatever TV show you want – even if it’s Made In Chelsea.
The point is, everything is ‘go, go, go’. Paddy Power has torn our technology team away from their heated ‘which is the best Twilight novel?’ debate to address the issue. And, in fairness, they may have the social skills of a feral child raised by narky badgers, but they’ve delivered the goods to come up with 2 Tap Bet Placement.
Yes, we’ve updated the Paddy Power Mobile Sportsbook App and 2 Tap Bet Placement is the bit we’re most smug about. We know no-one likes jumping through e-hoops to get your bet on, so we’ve cut down on the number of steps you need to take, given it a nip here and a tuck there and come up with the technology that will power the fastest single bet placement in mobile sports betting.
Previously it took an average 16-20 seconds to place a pre-live bet on mobile. Now that’s down to 3-4 seconds. For live betting it used to take 20-25 seconds, but that’s been liposuctioned to a trim 6-8 seconds. We will be saving customers thousands of hours of time per month – time you can use for helping dolphins or just sitting around in your pants. It’s up to you!
As the name somewhat gives away, there are two steps involved in the not-at-all complicated process.
- Step 1 is to make your selection.
- Step 2 is to tap that big ‘Place Bet Now’ button that will appear on your screen.
There’s some other nifty changes too, namely:
After this update, your last stake is remembered by the app and becomes your default stake. Clever app.
It’s still really easy to place a multiple bet because you can just tap ‘Add to Betslip’ and hey presto, you’re back to the old bet placement process.
If you get a Free Bet, you’ll be able to select it on the new betslip.
And if your bets qualifies to watch a live stream of a horse race, you’ll get an option on their receipt to go straight to the race.
