American Bookies See Soccer’s Popularity Rise

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-Feb-25 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Most U.S. bookmakers understand that after the Super Bowl, they must turn their attention to the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. After the tournament, pay per head agents concentrate on the NBA and MLB. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, there’s a new revenue opportunity. Soccer’s popularity has continually climbed in the United States. It could break out the way a winning stock does this spring and summer.

FIFA, soccer’s international governing body, usually begins their World Cup Qualifying Tournament two years before the WC. However, because of the pandemic, the organization pushed the UEFA World Cup Qualifying tournament out to 2021 and 2022. The first days of play are on March 24 and 25 this year. Matchday 10, the final days of group play, are on November 16 and 17. But UEFA World Cup Qualifying isn’t the only major tournament happening this spring and summer. The UEFA Champions League is to their Round of 16. The UCL Final happens on May 29.

PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson said sports bettors are the leading cause for the rise in soccer betting action. “In 2020, players looked for other options. The NCAA cancelled the March Madness Tournament, and the NBA and NHL paused their seasons. Not only that, but MLB played a 60-game regular season. Soccer returned to play quicker than any of the U.S. based sports leagues. It also helps that there are so many soccer leagues and soccer matches to choose from.”

U.S. broadcast outlets like Fox Sports 1, NBC Sports, and ESPN have helped introduce American bookies and players to the sport. U.S. sports networks air Champions League, English Premier League, Series A, and Bundesliga matches. “The networks may be the most important reason for the rise in soccer betting action,” Johnson said. “Teams like Manchester City and Man United, two of the most popular soccer teams, both play in the English Premier. Bayern plays in the Bundesliga. NBC’s streaming network, Peacock, shows most EPL games while FS1 showcases Bundesliga teams.”

The action has helped bookies maintain their monthly revenue after football season. But Johnson added a word of caution. “Make no mistake. Soccer has a long way to go before it approaches the action on football, basketball, or baseball. But the rise in betting activity is encouraging. Not only that, new soccer league seasons start at the end of August, and 2022 is a World Cup year. So our bookie software agents have reason to be bullish on soccer betting action. They must be careful about relying too much on it, though.”

Forget the Wingman – Have a WingPet Help Get Dates Online – FetchaDate is Where Pet Lovers Meet!

Thirty-Nine percent of people admit to swiping right on dating profiles with someone’s dog. Why? They want to meet the dog more than they want to meet the person. But on a pet-dating app like FetchaDate: where pet lovers meet, users just get it. They’re dog lovers already. And downloading this app means singles see the pet first and then choose whether they want to see the human behind the animal. It’s the place to Fetch – Match – Date pet lovers.

Indianapolis, IN – USA | February 20, 2021 — In a recent OnePoll survey of 2,000 Americans who have used a dating app in the past (half of which were pet owners), 39 percent admitted to swiping right on dating profiles with someone’s dog. Why? They wanted to meet the dog more than they wanted to meet the person.

But on a pet-dating site like FetchaDate, the dating app where pet lovers meet, users just get it. They’re dog lovers already. And downloading this app means singles see the pet first and then choose whether they want to see the human behind the animal.

“Pets have always been the perfect wingman or wing girl,” says Sheryl Matthys, founder of fetchadate. “Dog owners and dog walkers already know that a simple stroll could lead to an easy conversation with a stranger. Sometimes they can’t help themselves. They’ll ask to pet a dog they don’t even know. Our furry friends are irresistible, so it makes sense that FetchaDate would have a WingPet option for you.”

No pet? No problem! On FetchaDate, singles can choose from a variety of virtual pet images that best represent their lifestyles. Choose between dogs and cats as WingPets, or even horses, birds, pigs, snakes, and more! FetchaDate allows users to give their virtual pet a name and “Fetch 3” personality attributes from a predetermined list.

Human user profiles feature their names; ages; locations; mottos; professions; and fetch 5 interests and personality attributes from a list.

While FetchaDate offers a free version, subscribers can unlock enhanced features like a weekly “Leader of the Pack” Profile Boost and add up to four pets with in-app purchases. The upgrade gives the person’s “WingPet” higher priority in the “fetch Who’s Behind” game, increasing their opportunity to be seen!

“On FetchaDate, our pet-forward profiles offer a more honest bring-your-whole-self approach to dating,” says Sheryl Matthys, founder of the pet-dating app. “You can tell a lot about a person through their pet, and that makes for better matches.”

FetchaDate can be downloaded in the Apple Store and Google Play.

About Sheryl Matthys:
Matthys is the founder of www.FetchaDate.com and author of “Leashes and Lovers: What Your Dog Can Teach You About Love, Life, and Happiness.” She’s a dog sitter/trainer and has been featured on Animal Planet, E!, Bravo, ABC News Now, Fox & Friends, Sirius/XM, and The New York Times.

Bookies are Ready for NCAA March Madness to Return

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-Feb-10 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Sportsbook software companies like PayPerHead are gearing up for what should be an exciting NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. Called March Madness, the three-week event starts on Thursday, March 18, and finishes on Monday, April 5, with the 2021 NCAA Men’s College Basketball National Championship.

The NCAA canceled the 2020 tournament due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although the pandemic remains, the body that governs college sports says there are no plans to cancel this year’s event. Instead, in early January, the NCAA declared that all games would take place in Indiana, with the majority of the sixty-seven NCAA Tournament games happening in Indianapolis.

Traditionally, the March Madness Tournament produces the second most sports betting action of the year. Historically, the Super Bowl drives the most wagering action. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is a close second. With no tournament in 2020, bookie software agents relied on other gambling, like live dealer casino betting, to replace lost revenue. This year, per head agents are excited about the return of March Madness and expect pent up demand from customers.

Pay-per-head companies, the organizations that provide bookmakers’ software to run their businesses, are also excited. PPH sportsbook provider PayPerHead.com will run a promotion starting on February 8 to the college hoops title game on April 5. During the promotion, new customers only pay $4 per head for the company’s Prime Package. Per product manager Nate Johnson, the low price encourages non-customers to discover how PayPerHead is different.

“We’ll never be the low-cost leader,” Johnson said, “because our digital platforms provide player stickiness. The stickiness means players stay on our platforms longer, which means that with our platforms, agents make more money.” Johnson also added that the $4 per head promotional rate includes Live+, the company’s updated in-game betting platform. Johnson said Live+ includes game trackers and video streams. “Players have access to game stats that help them make informed live bets. They can also view games through video streams.”

After the $4 March Madness promotion ends, the company believes most customers will stay. “Our software is the best,” Johnson said. “We also provide things that other organizations in the per head industry don’t. Agents can pay and collect online, offer two separate live dealer casinos, provide their players a props platform, and offer 3D casino games. We’ll even help you create a branded website, and if you’re a master agent, we just developed reseller tools.”

About PayPerHead:
Founded in 1997, PayPerHead is the leading choice for serious bookies. The company’s Agent Payment Solution (APS) is the only platform in the PPH sportsbook industry that allows for online collections and payments.

Bookies Expect Record-Breaking Super Bowl LV Action

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-Feb-1 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On February 7, the most wagered upon event of the year happens when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs hit the gridiron for Super Bowl LV. Annually, the NFL Championship game attracts the most betting action of any single event of the year. As per PayPerHead, the world’s leading bookie software provider, the 2021 Super Bowl should break betting records. Every year, more and more people wager on the Lombardi Trophy game. Last year, betting action on the Super Bowl totaled over $6.8 billion worldwide. In last year’s Super Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.

Kansas City’s return to this year’s game is one reason bookmaking software companies are bullish on betting action exceeding 2020’s handle. The Chiefs and superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes are back. So is quarterback Tom Brady, which makes it so interesting to bettors. Brady became the fourth quarterback in history to take two different teams to the Super Bowl after the Buccaneers beat the Green Bay Packers and won the NFC.

On February 7, Brady plays in his tenth Super Bowl. The idea of the best quarterback in the NFL, Mahomes, taking on the best player in NFL history, Brady, in a game for the title has heads spinning.

“Even if you don’t have the internet or television, you know about this game. Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady are two of the most popular individuals, not just athletes, but people on the planet,” said Nate Johnson, product manager for PayPerHead.

The industry leader provides software that enables individual bookies to run branded sportsbooks online. With PayPerHead.com software, an individual bookmaker’s sportsbook can offer the same options that larger sportsbooks offer. Johnson said the organization added two digital platforms that should help their per head agents break individual Super Bowl betting action records. The first is Live+, an in-game wagering platform that offers game trackers and video streams.

“With Live+,” Johnson said, “players have no reason to leave our agents’ sites. They can check Super Bowl LV stats, check out video streams, and make bets while the action happens.” The other platform that has PayPerHead agents excited is what Johnson calls Premium Props. “In the past, players couldn’t bet on sports performances through the same agent platform. Now they can.”

So far, adopting agents have seen at least a 15% rise in action from Premium Props. Johnson expects Super Bowl LV to blow past that number. “The NFL has never had a Super Bowl like this before. The best current player in the league goes up against the best player of all time and all eyes will be watching and millions of dollars will be wagered. In the National Football League, quarterback is the most important position. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs versus Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? It’s a historical, dream matchup. With Live+ and Premium Props, our agents are in the best position to capitalize.”

TIKTOK FOLLOWERS, VIEWS AND LIKES SERVICE

MIAMI, FL, U.S.A., 2021-Jan-15 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Not so long ago, a new service appeared in the field of TikTok promotion. And it is this service called TikTop that has proven itself quite Well. There are several reasons for this: over the history of its existence, it has gained a good reputation and, at the same time, offers services at quite pleasant prices compared to competitors.

Let’s see why this service is effective. So, the advantages:

The service allows Users to establish contact only with active users. Visiting Tiktoks, even adding videos from time to time, does not mean being active enough (from the point of view of an entrepreneur who promotes products, services, or just maintains their own content). But the video is uploaded by active users who are fond of Instagram.

Short stories. One video lasts a very short time. As a rule, users are not very attentive to short-term content posts, so they post several videos a day. And users can quickly view them.

First of all, profiles that TikTok thinks are interesting are displayed. However, viewing such pages is also more profitable for the buyer.

Only the video displays a list of people who viewed the content. But the person will not be able to find out who visited the profile.

And, finally, it is worth emphasizing once again that this service, as a method of attracting an audience and feedback from it, is still unknown to many. Therefore, users think that the owner of the TikTok account is actually gradually gaining popularity and is interested in content that attracts other users of the social network and encourages them to perform useful actions for clients (whether it’s likes, views , comments, or subscribers to the TikTok account).

What can the client get using the TikTop service ? And yet, what will be the result after performing the technique? Let’s look at what such a client can get in the end:

New subscribers. People who have viewed clients and those who are interested in the content offered by the user will subscribe to them. Most people watch interesting new videos anyway, so they are more likely to see the clients’ content directly. It only remains to flash in their field of view (this will be done by automatically attracting views).

The increase in coverage of the page. Even those who don’t subscribe to you will increase their reach – they will visit the page, put likes, watch videos, and leave comments. In General, even if the target audience does not increase, the page activity will increase, and this is also a positive result.

Attracting an active audience that is ready for action. Customers of the Tiktok service will not receive empty subscriptions, but they will attract those who often use TikTok and receive information from It.

A user interested in the TikTop service can choose one of the categories of people according to their target audience.

TikTop service is an unobtrusive advertising method. Now everyone knows that page subscriptions are made for profit. Comprehensive promotion is always effective, so if a customer is promoting their TikTok account, promoting the channel’s telegrams, if any, will be appropriate.

Another caveat: TikTop helps not only attract a new audience, but also keep the old one in touch. For example, your page is dedicated to music. The client is subscribed to by people who are not subscribed to by the client. Thanks to TikTop, the audience constantly watches videos of these users, again, very easily and unobtrusively reminding them of themselves. The person will go to the “interesting” section and see you when it is convenient for them. In the case of other services, pages are more Intrusive, often cause a negative reaction and refusal of the account owner to which the subscription is being made.

To be fair, not everyone knows about TikTop. Mass subscriptions, thoughtless likes on several posts, empty comments that often contradict the meaning of the video-all this is striking, which can not be said about the method used by the TikTop service. Therefore, this method of promotion is still considered one of the priority, easy, unobtrusive and simple.

Bookies Offering More NFL Playoff and Super Bowl Player Betting Options

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2021-Jan-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Most analysts believe the U.S. is in the middle of a sports betting boom. American bettors wagered $2.1 billion on sports in August 2020, representing a 90.2% increase from the same month in 2019. Companies like PayPerHead provide sportsbook software that allows individual operators to compete with larger organizations. As sports betting rises in popularity, the company believes its clients are in a position to capitalize.

Caesars Entertainment and MGM have also noticed the rise in sports betting and are ramping up. Caesars purchased William-Hill, one of the United Kingdom’s most popular sportsbook organizations, for $4 billion. Furthermore, MGM is currently in talks to buy UK company Ladbrokes for $11 billion.

PayPerHead, the gambling software leader for individual business owners, recently released a Prime Player Props platform where sports bettors can access the platform and wager on individual player performances. Nate Johnson, the company’s product manager, stated, “PayPerHead wanted to unveil Prime Player Props before the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl so bookies can offer more.”

The average wagered worldwide on the Super Bowl is $6 billion. Every indication points to Super Bowl LV on February 7, breaking the $6 billion threshold and Johnson wanted to ensure their customers could offer all sports betting options on the big game. “But it’s not just the Super Bowl,” Johnson said. “Our agents can provide sports options on playoff games, like how many yards Tom Brady or Drew Brees throws. Basketball props are available as well. A player can wager on how many points James Harden scores, or whether Russell Westbrook gets a triple-double.”

PayPerHead recently added a premium casino, two live dealer options, and in-game betting platforms to their suite of offerings. Prime Player Props is another addition that Johnson is sure will help their agents increase action.

Johnson said that a sportsbook agent makes more money the longer players stick to their platforms. “The goal as a pay per head agent is to keep players on your digital platforms. The longer they stick to your platforms, the more action they deliver. The more action they deliver, the more wagers they make, the more money the agent makes.”

By offering everything a larger company can offer, bettors have no reason to leave a PayPerHead agent’s online sportsbook. “Our agents can now offer everything surrounding a single game. A player that wagers on a team to cover the spread can also wager on individual performances before the game. Then during the game, they can make in-game bets while watching the game in the Live+ software.”

Per Johnson, prime platforms have led to a 15% increase in wagering activity. Some of PayPerHead’s other customers have seen an even higher increase. “Some of our agents have seen a 30% rise in action after adopting premium platforms,” he said.

Johnson added that it’s all about providing value to PayPerHead’s customers. “The more value we give our clients, the more value they can give to their customers. The more money they make, the more money we make. At PayPerHead, we truly see our clients as partners.”

EMMY WINNERS GIVE KUDOS TO THECGBROS CGINSIDER PODCAST

Using an Animated Avatar of Himself, Digital Media Professional, Bill Johnston, Co-founder of the Popular TheCGBros YouTube Channel, Earns Praise for His Performance in a Video Podcast Preview Provided to a Special Panel of Members of the Voice Acting Academy.

SAN DIEGO, CA, 2021-Jan-06 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — TheCGBros, a Third-party aggregation YouTube Channel becoming an integral part of many short films’ release strategies, conducted a highly successful beta test of the first episode of their now-in-production podcast series, TheCGBros CGInsider Podcast. Bill Johnston, co-founder of TheCGBros YouTube Channel with his brother, Shaun Johnston, delivered the program content solo, in “talking head” format, but future episodes will see participation from Shaun and from influential guests, as well. Of special interest is that, although Bill spoke as himself, he did it through the novel medium of an animated avatar, possibly a first in the industry. The avatar was designed and executed by co-founder, Shaun Johnston.

The program content is intended for consumption by people with a wide variety of tastes and interests, especially fans of short videos. The subject matter will also be of general interest to students of CGI as well as both entry-level and professionals in the field. The premiere episode in the podcast series was released to the public on TheCGBros YouTube Channel at Midnight January 5, 2021. The series will be rolled out on other streaming platforms weekly on Tuesdays.

The test episode, which runs approximately 20 minutes long, is entitled “What is CGI?” Podcast titles scheduled for the remainder of January include: “Can You Describe the Different Jobs That Relate to Creating a CGI Film,” “Are There Examples of Current CGI in Films That Are So Well Done That They are Undetectable?” and “How Can I Get a Job in Gaming?”

The venue used for the test was an online weekly meeting of the Voice Acting Academy’s “Conductors Club” (VAACC.) The VAACC is a membership support service open to voiceover talent at all levels of experience for the purpose of helping them to advance their voiceover career and to help them get more work. Membership in the VAACC includes weekly live coaching sessions directed by Voiceover Guru, James Alburger, who says that the monthly cost of membership is a lot less than the usual cost of a single hour of private coaching. ConductorsClub sessions are conducted using Zoom, a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform app that allows virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities. Information on VAACC is available at https://voiceacting.com/conductorsclub.

The test involved a three-member panel of long-time members of the VAACC. Participating in the test were James Alburger, Tom Daniels, and George Asteri. Senior member of the panel, James Alburger, of San Diego, author of the book commonly used as a required text in college-level voiceover classes, “The Art of Voice Acting,” now in its 6th edition, asserted, “That’s really nice. Very interesting, very thorough, very effective.” Alburger is an 11-Time Emmy® Winner for Sound Design, and owner of The Voice Acting Academy and CIGMA Media. He is also an Engineer, Voice Acting Coach, and Executive Producer/Director for Film, Video, and other media. Alburger operates the websites VoiceActing.com and at cigmamedia.com. Panelist Tom Daniels averred, “That was awesome. Very informative and entertaining. It held my attention all the way through. What surprised me most was that the first use of computer generated imagery dates all the way back to 1958 in the Alfred Hitchcock film, Vertigo.” Daniels is an Emmy®-winning Voice Actor/Executive Producer who lives in Massillon, Ohio. You can listen to Tom’s sound demos here TomDanielsVoiceDemos and reach him at tomdanielsvoice@gmail.com. The third member of the panel, George Asteri, opined, “That was an excellent summary and gave a really good understanding of CGI. It really informed me.” Asteri, who lives in Saginaw, Michigan, has been acting for his entire life. As a Shakespearean trained actor, Asteri has performed on stage with such notable stars as Christopher Walken in Richard II, and Nicholas Pennell in Richard III. He has also played leading roles in many stage plays, including Shakespeare’s Hamlet. As a voice actor, Asteri has voiced national, local and cable commercials, shared his narration talent with a large Michigan school district film production, narrated for audiobooks, and has made several recordings for Internet clients. Asteri operates a website at https://www.GeorgeAsteri.com where he has provided his email address and telephone number.

Bill, when asked to describe his company’s vision for entering the wildly-expanding, somewhat chaotic podcast marketplace responded, “Well, we believe that mounting up a podcast series not only continues, but builds on our long-standing mission, which from Day-One has been to curate the highest quality professional-level CG content from around the world, as well as to provide insights and inspiration to our two main constituencies: the producers of video content and the consumers of that content. Simply stated, we help the second group — the consumers — by providing them with high quality video content, and we help the first group — the producers of video content — or as we call them,‘New Media Producers,’ by providing them access to a ‘destination site’ where members of the second group can come and discover their works. And by destination, we mean, specifically, a proven, well-established place, with a great reputation for streaming quality videos, where people who love our content know they can come to see outstanding videos that were created with the ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ suffering (not to mention loss-of-sleep) of artists with great talent but with little-to-no prospects to obtain timely significant Media Reach on their own. The proof is in the pudding — as we speak, we have more than 3.5 Million subscribers to our channel; that number is increasing by approximately 40,000 per month, and we are averaging more than 20 million views per month. And, we’ve aggregated almost 1.25 Billion views since we launched our channel. These statistics don’t tell the whole story, of course, but they put us, according to SocialBlade, the social media statistics website that tracks and measures growth, near the top 4,000 in YouTube subscriber ranking and near the top 3,000 in YouTube video view ranking.”

Responding to a further question, “How, specifically, will your podcast series contribute to the accomplishment of your mission,” Johnston explained, “As a forward-looking company in the entertainment business, we’re always on the alert to detect changes that are happening in the entertainment marketplace. What we’ve seen is a growing trend that people want more engagement with great Internet sites that they have gotten to know and have grown to love. Given the rapid increase in the number of podcasts available in the marketplace, we figured a podcast would be a great way, not only to meet our fans’ desires for a higher level of engagement with us, it would also be a great way for us to enhance the value we can add to providing curated videos to our viewers. We are also creating the company infrastructure necessary to support a fan club. We think that will provide even more of the engagement
that fans want.”

Bill Johnston is an established Digital Media Professional with 22 years of experience, the last 18 years within the console-gaming industry. There, he has been involved in Creative Direction/Supervision, Project/Team Management, Dynamic Simulations, and Fluid Dynamics involving Rigid Bodies and Soft Bodies, Particles, and Sprites. He has also managed the production of cinematic FX animation for industry leaders such as Activision/Blizzard, Sony Computer Entertainment of America, and Bungie. He has specialized in in-depth work in the areas of Pre-Visualization, Pre-Rendered FX/Cinematic Cut-Scenes, Promotional Projects and Real-Time Future-Gen FX for Game Environments. Johnston has worked on more than 45 AAA game titles played on personal computers, as well as on Sony’s Playstation, and Microsoft’s Xbox consoles. The titles include, among others, game series such as the CALL OF DUTY,DESTINY, RESISTANCE, UNCHARTED 2, LAIR, WARHAWK, GOD OF WAR, and SOCOM 3. He is currently working on another high-profile game franchise creating FUTURE-GEN FX for next-gen Platforms.

Sportsbooks Getting Ready for NFL Super Bowl LV

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Dec-15 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Although the NFL Season has had some hiccups, sportsbook software providing organizations are preparing for the most important day of the year. Companies like Costa Rica based PayPerHead.com have already released promotions designed to help their customers gain as much profit as possible on the 2021 Super Bowl.

Year in and year out, the Super Bowl accounts for the most betting revenue of any single sporting event. The betting handle on the Super Bowl is worldwide. Massive amounts of money are wagered on Super Bowl Sunday. Estimates range from $5.0 billion to $5.6 billion.

The total bet on the 2020 Super Bowl, where the Kansas City Chiefs rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the San Francisco 49ers, came in at $5.2 billion. The amount represented a 6% increase from 2019.

Gamblers living in the United States placed at least $270 million on Super Bowl LIV. With the prospect of a game between two popular teams this season, PayPerHead expects their customers to see even more significant revenue.

The Kansas City Chiefs and 2020 Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes have the best record in football. The popular Pittsburgh Steelers have a record that equals Kansas City’s. Over in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all appear capable of making it to the NFL’s championship game.

The biggest stars in the NFL are quarterbacks, and most contenders for this season’s Vince Lombardi Trophy are led by big name quarterbacks. Drew Brees plays for the Saints, Aaron Rodgers leads the Packers, Tom Brady crouches under center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ben Roethlisberger plays for the Steelers, and Russell Wilson is Seattle’s quarterback.

Las Vegas books and sportsbook software agents are drooling over the prospect of a matchup between Kansas City and Mahomes and either the Saints, Buccaneers or the Packers. Quarterbacks for all four teams will make it to the NFL Hall of Fame, and the idea of a head-to-head matchup between the future hall of fame quarterbacks has everyone excited.

One of those excited individuals is Nate Johnson, PayPerHead’s Product Manager. Johnson said the company’s latest promotion would help non-agents jump-start their sportsbook businesses.

The company’s newest promotion allows new agents to pay $3 per head from when they sign-up until Super Bowl LV on February 7. Johnson said that the promotion gives new agents a chance to use all of the company’s bookie software, including their in-game betting, live dealer casino, and digital casino platforms.

“Players, a sportsbook operator’s customers, are most active from the NFL Playoffs to the Super Bowl. We want to give them a sense of how we’re better from their current software provider or introduce them to pay per head and how it can help them make more money,” Johnson said.

He added that most sportsbook owners who sign up with PayPerHead had no idea how much more the company had to offer. “I’ve gotten calls from agents who signed up with us marveling at how much more money they’ve made. That makes us want to fight even harder to help our customers succeed.”

No Negative COVID Effects on NFL Betting Action

Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Dec-08 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Leading price per head sportsbook software company PayPerHead.com recently announced that the coronavirus pandemic had no adverse effects on the amount of revenue their agents have acquired since the start of the 2020 NFL Season. In doing so, the software company echoed statements from other sportsbook organizations.

In hindsight, sportsbooks should have expected muted effects from the coronavirus pandemic. Before the NFL season began, the American Gaming Association released a national survey of expected sports betting activity for the 2020 National Football League season.

The survey showed that an estimated 33.2 million adults living in the U.S., that’s 13% of the population, planned to wager on NFL games. 20% of those surveyed, around 6.6 million, said they were wagering in brick and mortar, physical sportsbooks.

8.6 million adults, 26%, said they’d make what the industry calls casual bets, wagers in pools, in fantasy contests, or by purchasing squares. Another 50% said they’d bet with friends, family members, or coworkers.

In 2019, 18% said they’d wager in a physical sportsbook. Among the three categories, brick and mortar establishments are the only ones that saw their expected football sports betting activity rise. Expectations for casual bets, fantasy contests, pools, and squares, was down from 31% in 2019. Last year, 53% said they’d wager with friends, family, or coworkers.

The category where expectations rose the most was NFL bets on online platforms. 34% said they’d make a bet through an online sports betting platform. That was up 5% from 2019. So far, the numbers have proven correct.

If anything, the pandemic has caused NFL wagering handle on sites like those that Payperhead.com agents run to increase. The company stated that the rise in betting across all sectors, sports, live dealers, digital casinos, and racebooks saw a bump this year.

Nate Johnson, PayPerHead’s Product Manager, said about the NFL bolstered betting action. “Once the National Football League said they’d start their season on time, our agents saw an influx of future bets on things like league MVP and the Super Bowl.”

Now over ten weeks into the season, agents have witnessed no drop-off in football betting action. “People are at home all the time. Although Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, etc., have a lot of content, there’s only so much sports bettors can take. As long as the NFL plays games and as long as those games are on television, players will bet on pro football, which means our agents will profit.”
