In fact, using a price per head, bookmakers can focus more on paying and collecting while growing their bookie business.
How Does a Pay Per Head Service Work?
The service provider charges a price per player per week in exchange for access to a real-time reporting and online sportsbook betting platform. Agents are only charged for active players. The PPH platform typically costs millions in infrastructural expenses, making this service a serious value to the bookie.
Are There Additional Charges?

Are all Pay Per Head services the Same?
The million-dollar question is, are all Pay Per Head Services the same? The answer is a resounding no! Many PPH outfits offer poor line management which costs bookies millions each year in profits. Plus, over half provide inadequate support, including technical help, and lack industry proficiencies like understanding the basics of limits, sharp action, bot detection, and setup. Even more, many offer outdated software, limit the number of subs and use emails instead of secure user names, leading to player and agent theft.
The Bottom Line

If the Pay Per Head provider offers a VIP 1-on-1 manager, it’s a good sign they care about their customer relationship. Lastly, don’t settle for the cheapest provider. It reflects poorly on your bookie business, and your players will eventually look elsewhere to gamble.
