Fellow bookie Paddy Power is welcoming this week’s Royal Ascot meeting with the launch of a new iPhone product. Bet and Watch gives punters who place at least a £1 or €1 bet the chance to watch the action via the Paddy Power App if they possess an iPad or iPhone. They can then find out if they’ve won any money ASAP and of course whether they’re going to have to tell the wife that they’ve lost the house. The option will continue to be available after this week’s Ascot meet but only covering races that are shown on the satellite channel At The Races.
