While it’s almost always sports bettors being rewarded with loyalty promotions, bookies are also eligible for pay per head (PPH) promotions. It just depends which PPH you partner with.
Most PPH companies never offer PPH promotions to their bookie clientele.
Are You Paying for Your PPH Service During COVID-19?
Several of the leading price per head companies have started a new promotion for bookies.
RealBookies has led the way during the COVID-19 pandemic. PPH bookies using RealBookies have not had to pay a penny since the major US sports were postponed.
Don’t let COVID-19 destroy your business. With betting volumes down across the board, we’re all anticipating the restart of major US sports (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, CFB and CBB).
All verified agents can switch to RealBookies and are eligible for free pay per head promotions.
You won’t need to pay for any active players until one of the big six sports are back.
At the moment, it looks like the NBA will be the first major US sport back.
The NBA is planning to resume the 2019-20 season July 30th 2020. That could change, though, as this is a fluid situation and it wouldn’t take much for the date to be pushed back further.
Here’s what’s included during the free pay per head promotion at RealBookies:
• Sportsbook: Increased eSports, virtual sports simulations and special markets.
• Racebook: Horse racing is already back in the US and attracting increased volume.
• Virtual Casino: Your players can play slots, video poker, keno and more 24/7.
• Live Dealer Casino: Offer real casino games with dealers, your players will love them.
Pay Per Head Free Trials
Under normal circumstances, PPH companies often offer a free trial promotion to bookies.
The free trial period can vary in length, but RealBookies offers a full four weeks. Obviously, with COVID-19 and the free PPH promotion running right now, there’s no need for a free trial.
However, if you’re reading this after one of the major US sports is back, you’ll still be eligible for the free trial promotion. This is a great way to get started as a bookie with a limited budget.
You just need to make sure you have money to pay your players if they win.
PPH Player Volume Discounts
PPH companies also offer volume discounts to bookies with large betting sheets.
If you have 25+ players that are active on your betting sheet, then you’ll be able to start saving even more money with volume discounts. The more players you have, the bigger the discount.
The savings can be huge. Let’s say you have 100 players and you’re paying $10/week ($1000) now. If you can even drop that fee to $8/head per week ($800), you’ll save $200/week or $800/month.
That’s a lot of money in your pocket every month.
Make sure you’re getting value out of your pay per head. There’s a lot of competition in the industry and switching providers right now is ideal due to volume being so slow because of COVID-19.
