Betting for Living

To bet for a living would seem like the ideal dream job for most avid gamblers, however, in order to bet for a living, it would mean you would have to win over 70% of your wagers. The typical juice or vig on most wagers is -110 which essentially means you have to pay 10% extra on each wager placed, which is why a winning percentage of at least 70% would be needed to be consistently profitable in betting.

Anyone that gambles, knows that not only is a 70% winning percentage next to impossible to maintain in the long term but even just winning 50% of one's bets is very hard, and would lead to a person losing money.   However, there is another way that is much easier and profitable if you want to make a living in the gambling industry. Since most gamblers always lose over the long term, then why not be on the other side of the business, and actually be the bookie?

If you are the bookie this means that you are the one taking action on bets from people, and then when they lose the wager, you win and collect the money.  This ends up killing two birds with one stone since it is a more profitable way to earn money in the gambling business and if you love betting then by accepting wagers you will always have skin in the game because you will need the opposite team to cover in order for you to make the money from your players' wagers.

In addition, it is super simple nowadays to be a bookie because all you need to do is get set up with a pay per head service and they will provide you with a professional sportsbook website with thousands of betting options that are updated up to the second by the PPH software provider each day.  These services handle the entire bookmaking aspect of the business and provide an agent backend where you can manage all your players’ limits and figures.

One of the most popular pay per head companies in the business is www.Aceperhead.com, and they not only have more betting options than the rest of the industry, but they also have a higher hold percentage which leads to players losing more money using Ace, due to their sharper lines.

All you have to do as the bookie is just find players that would like to bet on your new website. This is fun and simple, and is best accomplished with word of mouth by reaching out to all of your friends, family members, classmates, coworkers, and social media friends. You can even offer them a small free play to get them started which would give them a small amount of free play that they can use to make a wager. If they lose the wager then the free play disappears and the player does not lose any of their own money, and if the player wins the free-play bet, then the free play disappears and the winning amount of the wager gets credited to the player’s account. This allows the player to try out the site with a no-lose wager and is a good way to get people hooked on the site and betting with you.

So if you are looking to make a living in the sportsbook betting business, then get set up on the house side and become a bookie by calling AcePerHead.com at 1-800-909-5193 and get set up today.
