This is How You Become a Bookie

Are you interested in learning how to become a bookmaker?

We have people contact us all the time and many have little understanding of what a pay-per-head (PPH) service provides or how we make our service affordable for everyone.

By definition, anyone that accepts a bet is a bookie. However, running a sportsbook today requires technology. Accepting bets on your smartphone and tracking data in Excel isn’t going to cut it.

First Step on How to Become a Bookie – Find Players

Since you need to accept bets to be a bookie, you need player/s that want to wager.

We spend more time detailing advertising/marketing methods in other guides here at BecomeTheBookie, but if you want to learn how to become a sports bookie, the first step is finding players.

You only need one player to get started and you may be surprised how much you can earn with a single gambler wagering $100+/game. On average, a $100+/game bettor will lose $5K+/annually.

Talk to your friends and family to find your first few clients.

Tips for Running a Successful Sports Bookie

Learning how to become a sports bookie is the first step, but the next step is learning how to run a successful sportsbook. Here are some quick tips to help you grow your sports betting business.

  • Customer Service: One thing you’ll learn when you become a bookmaker is that you need to treat all of your clients with the utmost respect and professionalism.
  • Pay Quickly: Not only do fast payments help you retain your current clients, but your clients will likely refer friends/family to your business because they know you payout quickly.
  • Find Partners: One way to quickly grow your player base is through partnerships with other bookmakers. Some bookies close shop after the NFL season. Some people prefer working as agents instead of owning a sportsbook and they’ll refer you clients for a commission.
