A new Chatbot program, developed by Onionsack, will allow Paddy Power’s customers to now directly place bets through Facebook Messenger.
The texting app developer Onionsack, launched its new capabilities with Facebook Messenger last month at the San Jose F8 Facebook Developers Conference. It has already worked with many of the leading UK companies such as William Hill and Ladbrokes.
Product Director for Paddy Power, Michael Healy recently stated: “We know our customers love mobile messaging apps, soby having a chatbot on Facebook Messenger it is an obvious first step. Nearly all of our customers are on Facebook and now they can actually place a bet through the Messenger app.”
Users are able to log into their Paddy Power betting account through Facebook and “chat” with the bot, see odds, place bets and get updates about games.
