Bookie Personality Traits

Sports bettors seeking out a bookie in this neighborhood should understand the common personality traits of the individual they’re likely to come across (note: there are just general stereotypes). 

Smug elitist Bill Maher look on his face when you ask if he offers LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING.  They are Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving personalities. 

They are outspoken, ingenious and engage in stimulating conversation.  They are actually good at strategically determining whether you are a serious sports bettor or one inclined to just dabble on an occasional weekend and never place a bet outside the football season.  Savvy bookies know that Pay Per Head establishments the likes of RealBookies.com only charge a small fee for active weekly customers and, as such, they might not engage as much if they believe you to be a “small fish”. 

Interesting Factoids

Humboldt Park (the park) is not located in Humboldt Park.  The Puerto Rican community has identified strongly with the area since the 1970s.  This region was far more dangerous during the 1970s with plenty of gang violence.  The area has seen improvements in recent years.

Avondale is heavily Polish.  As of 2014, the top 5 employing industry sectors in Avondale are administration (26.8%), retail trade (17.9%), manufacturing (15%), utilities (9.6%) and construction (4.8%).

As for Logan Park, from Wikipedia:

Today, the neighborhood is home to a diverse population including Latinos (primarily Mexican and Puerto Rican, with some Cuban), a number of ethnicities from Eastern Europe, (mostly Poles), and African-Americans. Additionally, the increase in housing costs in nearby Wicker Park, Lincoln Park and the Lakefront communities has led to many of the Chicago's aspiring artists to call Logan Square home.

Neighborhood Fan Base

Unlike a good chunk of the nation, betting on Baseball is built into the equation.  When the Bulls are good, so too is the business for bookies during an otherwise dry NBA season.  Savvy bookies know they can get a lot of action on Hockey, especially when offering LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING. 

The Bears bring the entire betting community together however with around 35 percent of those residing here identifying themselves as true Bears fans.  Believe it or not, with 32 teams in the NFL and a high transplant rate, this number is quite high.   Shocking but the next biggest fan base is the Packers at 7 percent.  The Steelers were 3rd at 4 percent of the population.
