How Easy is it to Become a Bookie?

(Gambling911.com Q&A) – Becoming a bookie in this day and age is so easy even a caveman can do it.  And that’s no pun.  Bookies existed during the Cavemen era as the second oldest professional after prostitution. 

All you really need to get started is a small group of friends (say 10 minimum) who bet on sports and preferably love playing either online poker or casino games. 

The later is critical and will give you an edge over fellow local bookies.  For those sportsbooks operating offshore, it’s the worst kept secret that the online casino offerings act as the cash cow when times are tough and this concept applies to you when your players are on one of those hot streaks.

Oh, but you’re not a poker dealer and don’t live by a casino.

No worries.  Sites like AcePerHead.com provide not only the management of your players but also offer a full suite of casino and poker games.  They also offer live and mobile wagering. 

You as the bookie pay a set fee per customer for the Pay Per Head to run your business.  Today’s Pay Per Head operators will sometimes even provide convenient payment solutions  when applicable, though this is typically done through third party arrangements.

Simply put, if you’re the guy who host your office pools come March Madness, you have what it takes to become a bookie.  Just be sure to check laws in your jurisdiction.  AcePerHead.com accepts business from across the globe. – Aaron Goldstein, Gambling911.com
