Running a bookie is a challenge for some operators. As a result, they prefer hiring a licensed pay per head (PPH) company to manage key gambling operations and market their betting options. 

But, you can get into a dilemma when choosing the PPH service provider. Listed below are 10 things to consider when choosing the best pay-per-head company. 

1. The Staff's Experience 

Each pay per head firm needs to have experienced personnel who can respond to customers' queries. You cannot grow a sportsbook if you lack skilled sports analysts. Bookies are different from shops that some youngsters manage who cannot differentiate between moneylines, parlays, straights, and teasers. 

Ask the PPH agent to prove their experience in managing a successful bookmaker. Then, choose a pay per head company that has run during several National Football League (NFL) seasons if you like watching the sport. 

2. Is The Company Genuine? 

There are many online scammers today. Therefore, it is prudent to ascertain the genuineness of a pay per head service provider. They should have experienced and reliable personnel who will serve your players anytime. 

Some PPH companies have downsized their staff and hired PPH agents to run their gambling software. Avoid contracting companies that lack credentials and online reviews. 

3. The Pay Per Head Services Available 

Standard PPH services include casino, horse betting, and sportsbook. In addition, some PPH companies offer in-game and live betting, various deposit methods, bookie reports, a support team, and white label websites. 

4. Referrals 

Seek referrals from family and friends who often wager. For example, they might know a reputable PPH service that uses sophisticated gambling software and provides unlimited customer support. 

Some companies display their managers' phone numbers on their home pages. You can contact them to seek clarification about their plans and services. Companies that contact you when you haven't sought them tend to focus more on closing deals rather than providing high-quality services. 

5. Does the Company Specialize in a Particular Market? 

A PPH company can choose to focus on one market or venture into different gambling markets. Firms with many skilled employees create different departments, including finance, customer service, and odds compilers. 

6. Pay Per Head Reports Offered 

Most investors prefer getting weekly or monthly reports to assess the performance of their investments. Choose a PPH company that provides reports like hold percentages, player history, weekly balances, and settlement figures. 

7. Free Trials and Demos 

The premier pay per head companies offer one to four weeks of free trials for their software. They help you understand their services and determine whether they can satisfy your gambling needs. 

An ideal company will explain how they will help you achieve your financial goals and teach you how to use their software on a live demo. DGS is among the leading betting software now. 

8. Line Management 

Most successful bookies use sharp lines. A linesman can build or destroy your investment. 

Sharp punters can destroy your business in hours. One or several experienced experts will have to manage your players. You can inquire about who is in charge of adjusting the lines. 

9. The Latest PPH Trends 

Mobile betting is the most popular form of gambling globally as most punters prefer wagering on smartphones. So ask the PPH company whether they will provide mobile gambling. 

Some companies still optimize games and betting markets for desktops. New PPH providers are accepting payments through cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

10. Your Instinct 

Sometimes, your instinct might caution you from doing something. If this happens while comparing different companies, it is wise to speak with their customer support to clear all doubts. 

The offshore bookmakers and PPH agent bookie business models have developed together for a long time. But, a new model developed after online betting became popular. It involved paying a per punter fee that is a percentage of your revenue.
