What is a Bookie?

A bookie is someone who accepts wagers or bets on sporting events, and when the bets win they pay the players with the winning wagers and collect money from players with the losing wagers. A bookie can do this by accepting wagers over the phone with paper and pen or he can use a pay per head service.
