Making the Right Decision

Tips for bookies to get started online by using a pay per head service.

Bookies are looking for something, anything, that will help them improve their bottom line. The gambling business is fun, and it can be highly rewarding and lucrative if it is operated correctly. The question is, how does one go about operating the business correctly? What can a local bookie do to see bigger and more consistent profits? The first step is to throw out the negative. Don't listen to those people that say "COVID ruined it all", or "you'll never recover because folks quit gambling". This is the kind of nonsense that you must run from. None of this is true and in fact, quite the opposite. The gambling business has never been bigger, and gamblers are gambling now, more than ever before.

Find a site that custom-builds an online sportsbook for you. If you are a "street bookie" or a "local bookie" then you know how difficult this job can be. This gig is not for lightweights! Bookies are thought to be available all day, every day. We know this is not true. This notion is downright ridiculous. A custom-built online sportsbook puts you online within a day or two and now you can be "available all day, every day".

Find a pay per head that looks professional, find one that looks as if you have logged onto one of the "mega" online sites. Many pay per head providers charge $2-$6 per head to get you in the door. We are not here to tell you that finding a bargain is not a great thing, indeed it is great. You must keep in mind that you get what you pay for. This concept can be compared to buying new shoes. You can hit the big named stores and purchase the big named shoes and you will pay a premium price. You are paying for quality and craftsmanship. You can also hit the big named discount chains and pay for their brand for a fraction of the cost. The difference in quality will shine through and you will indeed see how “you get what you pay for”.

Find a pay per head that does everything for you, they should leave no stone unturned. You should expect them to build your online sportsbook within a day or two, set up your site to look professional as well as operate with a user interface that’s easy to read, easy to gamble with and one that sets the daily offerings as well as future events. You also want the pay per head to set the daily lines and odds. This is not a task that you should be saddling yourself with. You are probably not an experienced line mover or oddsmaker. Sure, you most likely know about setting lines and odds but why would you want to do this argues task daily?

Find a pay per head that offers you on-demand financial and player reports. You must keep a running tab on all of your players and that can be a difficult task. Your players may deposit with you once and play for a month without you seeing or hearing from them. You must budget your players and budget yourself. The only way to keep up the pace with your money/profit margins is by reading daily reports of when every dollar came in the door and when every dollar hit the road.

Find a pay per head that offers a vast wagering menu with a wide variety of events to bet on daily. You must also look for a wide variety of ways to bet on those sports. If you offer your clients options, it’s guaranteed they will use them.

Don't delay any further, now is the time to jump into the online game and start earning what you are worth as a bookie. The pay per head fees are affordable, and best of all the best PPH providers on the Internet are now offering you a free gaming website that includes a state of the art sportsbook with every sport known to man and every way to bet on those sports, a fantastic, Las Vegas-style virtual casino that features more than 100-games, including all of your clients' favorite table games, and the hottest slots.
