Bookies in Oakland, California Area: Where to Find Them

If you are looking for local bookies in the Oakland, California area, they are in total abundance. Chances are PayPerHeadAgents.com services these bookies as they are fluent in Chinese and Oakland encompasses the third largest Chinese-American population.  PayPerHeadAgents.com can be reached via phone at 888-328-6957 國/粤语: 888-328-6957.

Some of the more popular hangouts for the local bookie include sports bars like The Royal Exchange, Grand Tavern, GO Sports Bar, George & Walt’s and Grand Oaks.

Sports fans in and around the city of Oakland are faced with a mixed bag.  On one hand they have to deal with an NFL team (the Raiders) that is the worst in the league.  On the other hand, they have two solid area Major League Baseball teams including the A’s and World Series winning Giants.

Smart bookies tend to use Pay Per Head companies operating offshore (PayPerHeadAgents.com being one such company as mentioned above), and with good reason. 

While California is not known for actively prosecuting bookies and makes their activity a misdemeanor, that hasn’t stopped law enforcement in the region from going after alleged bookmakers.  As such, this provides extra motivation to move the majority of its business offshore to the Pay Per Head venture.

Most recently in 2012, FBI agents took down what was described as a violent international betting ring that brought in millions over the last decade.  There are of course added elements to this case beyond simple bookmaking.

Bookmaking is indeed a violation of California Penal Code Section 337a (1)-(6) and essentially encompasses the act of accepting wagers on a sporting event along with the activities performed in connection with the booking of bets that include such things as owning or renting a location where bookmaking is being conducted as well as the writing down of wagers, or laying off bets or wagers.
