The Pay Per Head Service industry is becoming ever more popular with professional bookmakers each year, and for good reason.  Working with a quality PPH service can make you more money with less work and worry.  The savvy bookie will do his or her due diligence before choosing which company is best for them.

Often times in life, it’s the things that we think of as bargains that end up being way more expensive in the long run than it would have cost to go ahead and get the better quality product in the first place.  This holds true for Pay Per Head Services as well.  A quality PPH company can change a bookies life for the better, whereas a cheap PPH company can turn into a nightmare quickly.

If you look closely at the available price per head services being offered to bookmakers these days you will quickly begin to see them divided into at least four categories.  It pays to take some time and study the available options before making a commitment.

The first would be the smaller companies that are sincerely out there trying to do a good job at a competitive price but just do not have the infrastructure to keep up.

The key word in this industry is redundancy, and that takes time and costs money to set up.  The old expression, “God bless the child that has his own” goes double in the Pay Per Head industry.

Next there are the fly-by-night outfits out there promising the world at a super low price but knowing full well that they will not be there for you when the going gets tough.  They may mean well, however, if they are dependent on outside services to keep their business running, they are bound to suffer down time which is bad for their clients and completely out of their control.

What the prudent bookie will want to avoid at all costs are the companies offering a price per head service which also run a sportsbook.  Think about it. These companies are in direct competition with you for your clients and historically have a record of luring good clients away from local bookies with bonuses, specials and glitter.

Then we have the rarest of them all, the few Pay Per Head companies like Host PPH.com with almost 20 years in the business.  The folks at Host have taken the time and made the investments in state of the art equipment and a highly trained professional staff that dedicates itself to keeping their clients happy, out of trouble and making money.

Of course the quality companies are going to have to charge a little more in order to give you better service.  That holds true in almost any business. However, you will find, at the end of the month, you will end up with a greater hold percentage than you would have at the cut-rate shop…..and have happier clients as well!

Don’t take a chance with your business.  Remember, what the price per head company you work with puts up online for you will be representing you to your players.   These days players are looking for high quality, friendly ease of access to wagering with no hassles and no delays.  Provide that for them, do your payouts and collections with a smile, and they will keep on coming back for more.



HAPPY BOOKIETaking your neighborhood sports bookie business out of the local sports bar and onto the Internet is a big move, probably one of the most important decisions that a local bookie can make. But, look around you. One by one, local bookies are making the transition to a quality pay per head service company to provide attractive wagering options to their clients while assisting them with the everyday details of the business such as record keeping, grading games and keeping the lines sharp.

 HOST Pay Per Head Service has been around for almost 20 years now having evolved over time to meet the needs of the local bookmaker and his players.  Back in the 90’s, many bettors started to drift away from the ‘local guy’….drawn by the glitz and glamour of the Internet and all those flashy options and glossy pictures offered there.

 The average local bookie just could not compete.  The offshore sports books were even offering incentives in the form of sign-up bonuses and free plays that the local guy simply could not match and stay in business. Then some very wise people came up with the idea of a service company that provided to the local bookie all of the modern wagering options offered by the big offshore companies.  That’s how HOST PPH came into being.

 The idea quickly caught on.  Both bettors and bookies liked the new system under which the bettor could stay with his trusted local guy and still access world-wide wagering options around the clock.  The only thing that the bookie was left to do was his collections and payouts…..and perhaps a little discreet recruiting.

 These days there are many options available for providing price per head services. Some, like HOST PPH, are very good….some not so good….some downright awful.  The savvy bookie, thinking about making the switch, is obliged to do a thorough check of the companies he or she is considering before making the decision on which service to work with.

 The first thing to consider is the people involved.  Since a lot of your dealings with the Pay Per Head service will be done over the phone, get them on the phone.  Ask the hard questions and get the information you need before making a move.  Are you able to communicate with the agents comfortably? If your questions are not answered to your satisfaction, look elsewhere.

 Finally, check out the software.  Is it easy to access and presented in an attractive manner?  Most of all, is it dependable?  Players these days are demanding high quality, dependable 24/7 access to wagering and a friendly face to meet up with and settle up……working with a quality outfit like HOST Pay Per Head Service offers the best of both worlds!

Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks Game Six Betting Trends

Bucks_Celtics_Playoff_SeriesThe Bucks are 6.5 points favorites against the Boston Celtics for Game 6 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, with the total at 201 and either side at -110.

This is a good matchup for the Celtics as they proved in game 5 that they pair with the Bucks really well player-wise. As for the head coaching department, the Celtics’ Brad Stevens gives his team the edge as he seems to have this series figured out, so it wouldn’t be crazy to pick the Celtics in this game.

Point guard Marcus Smart has been a big difference in defense for the Celtics as he gave several Bucks players a difficult time due to his skills and the high level of energy on the defensive end. Continue Reading →

All price per head companies are not created equal.
