Delaware County PA – DELCO - Bookies, Pay Per Heads

Delaware County bookies are everywhere and there can never be enough with some many hungry sports bettors in and around the Philadelphia area.  The county is often referred to as DELCO.

Delaware County has an estimated population of 563,894, the 5th most populous in the Keystone State.  It is home part of the Philadelphia–Camden–Wilmington, PA–NJ–DE–MD Metropolitan Statistical Area.  There are a number of affluent towns and neighborhoods within the county.

Radnor Township is located in Delaware County and is home to Villanova University.  Radnor and neighboring Wayne is decidedly white-collar town, with fully 95.19% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.  Wayne has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. 

The top employer in the region is Villanova University, 3,438, with three other schools employing a large number as well. 

Lincoln Financial Group is headquartered in Radnor Township.  In 2007 the company moved 400 employees, including its top executives, to Radnor from Philadelphia.  J.G. Wentworth and TV Guide are also headquartered in Radnor.

According to a 2007 estimate, the median income for a household in the township was $86,812, and the median income for a family was $113,601. Males had a median income of $71,308 versus $42,652 for females.  Needless-to-say, there is plenty of disposable income available for betting on local sports teams.

And there are plenty of teams to root for as the Philadelphia area has a rich sports scene.

The Wildcats as of this writing were ranked number two in the nation in College Basketball.  They are consistently one of the best Basketball teams though they surprisingly only draw the 48th largest attendance on average at just shy of 9000.

Nearly half of those living in the county support their local Eagles.  4 percent each support the Giants and Steelers with the rest of the sports fan population backing other national teams.

Bookies tend to be most prevalent on college campuses like Villanova,  and in sports bars and pool halls. Baggataway Tavern in nearby West Conshohocken, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in nearby King of Prussia and  333 Belrose Bar & Grill in town are among the most popular sports bars.

Pay Per Head services help local bookies, would be bookies and agents in boosting profit margins further while reducing losses through the offering of live in-play betting, numerous proposition and future betting options as well as the option of adding an online casino.  As any of the top offshore sports book operators can tell you, online casino games help drive massive amounts of revenue to the sites thanks to the solid house advantage.  This is true of a regular land based casino as well.

A Pay Per Head runs all aspect of the bookie business with the exception of handling financial transactions.  They charge a small weekly fee per customer (per head), often starting around $10.  In the long run, bookies and agents alike save money while minimizing the headaches involved in running such a business entirely on their own.

Pay Per Head businesses in a way actually help to reduce criminal activities in a particular jurisdiction.  Bookies will be bookies no matter what, but Pay Per Heads eliminate the wire rooms and physical operation that would otherwise attract a certain criminal element to one’s home or establishment.

While Wayne and Radnor are safer than 62% of the cities and towns in the US of all population sizes, bookies are at especially high risk of becoming criminal targets regardless. 

The Philadelphia area is a hot bed for Mob activity.  Bookies should always be careful not to association with unsavory characters.

Gambling – both simple and aggravated – is a misdemeanor in the state of PA.
