igroup employees did not let the Coronavirus get in the way of a day at the races at our local Chester racetrack.
We had a private Box/ Teams meeting in the County Stand and enjoyed betting on five races. We were each given fifty igroup pounds to bet with and the minimum stack was five pounds per race.
The race video was played over Teams and the bookie (MD Steve Rastall) settled up any winnings and shared the leader board after each race. This took him back to the days when he worked as a helper in his dad’s betting shop as a teenager.
James Lowery, head of marketing, placed one extremely lucky bet and cleaned up. He commented, “It was a fun way of getting the team together, and unlike when we’ve been to the races, I came away as a winner.”
