Hawaii might not have any professional sports teams, but they have a Rainbow Warriors college football team that enjoyed some nice success up until 2010.  Oh, and did we mention Hawaii has had some really good Little League teams advance to the World Series?

How to Start Your Online Mobile Sportsbook in Hawaii

For a fee as low as $3 per head (per customer/player) per week, you will get a customized website for your players, 24/7 customer service (online and by phone), full odds service, live in-play wagering, betting on most international sports, full reporting, an online casino, a horse book and much more.  AcePerHead is currently running a FREE WEEK every month FOR LIFE promo.

There are no upfront costs such as the purchase of the software, etc...  Also no need to hire anyone other than the recommended accountant and perhaps an assistant.  Remember, you will be spending most of your time on the beach. 

Is Sports Betting Regulated in Hawaii?

Hawaii is the second least gambling-friendly state after Utah, but only because they're not as in-your-face about it.  Like Utah, Hawaii is the only other state without any forms of gambling.

The state is attractive to bookies mainly as a result of its college football program.  And, yes, many bookies will take bets on the Little League World Series.

Benefits of Betting With a Local vs. Regulated Sportsbook in Florida

There are plenty of state-regulated apps for the Arizona gambler.  But local bookies provide anonymity, wagering on credit and typically accept customers 18 and up.  They also do not require extensive paperwork.  Pay per head businesses like AcePerHead.com also provide wagering on many events and options not available at regulated books.  They also feature an online casino and racebook.  Local bookies do not report your winnings to the IRS (you still need to file your taxes).

Safeguards

Never accept customers you have not fully screened beforehand.  You should either be familiar with your customers or they should contain references.  A pay per head has eliminated a number of elements of the bookmaking business once deemed to be illegal such as the operation of a wire room and the settlement of payments/collections via cash.  For example, bets are placed over a secure website with servers outside the United States.  Bets by phone are strongly discouraged

Pay per heads like AcePerHead also offer money transactions via Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that take place via the website.

Take That Extra Step:

  • Do not take bets over the phone.
  • Avoid taking on customers who reside outside your state.
  • Know your customers and check referrals.
  • Do not engage with individuals involved in any type of criminal activities.
  • Use cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Tumblers provided by AcePerHead, for secure anonymous transactions.
  • Keep your customers information private.
  • Always file your taxes.

Today's pay per head businesses are regular sponsors on your favorite search engines so they enjoy maximum exposure, but not all pay per head businesses are the same.  AcePerHead is one of the most established in the industry.

Avoid those services that only offer the software for super cheap and nothing else.

Hawaii Team Report (Updated March 31, 2023)

Rainbow Warriors College Football - Last year the team was in disarray following the previous season's scandal which resulted in its former head coach leaving along with most of the players.  The fast-formed new team finished with just three wins.

Hawaii has since been able to recruit more talent and should win more games in 2023.

Hawaii Little League - Hawaii got back-to-back homers from Kekoa Payanal and Kama Angell in the first inning, sparking a 13-3 win in just four innings over Curacao in the summer of 2022.  This was their fourth title.
