While major games dropped cases because of social separating conventions, sportsbooks are discovering approaches to keep players inside the action during this pandemic

Escazu, Costa Rica, 2020-Jul-04 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — With betting accessible on eSports, recreated sports, one-on-one rivalries, for example, boxing or tennis, horse dashing, computerized gambling club gaming, live vendor club, and even political decision results, individuals are as yet wagering as a type of entertainment.

Studies have demonstrated that during times of financial downturn, war, or emergencies, individuals go to diversion to ease tension and stress. Books, films, betting, computerized gaming, and internet based life are on the whole ways that individuals “look at” of their present reality, regardless of whether for only a couple of long stretches of relief.

Likewise, considers show that resigned grown-ups, whose every day exercises may be the most like jobless residents or residents who are protecting set up during social removing conventions, are bound to bet for incitement and for fatigue alleviation as opposed to for winning cash. In interviews, card sharks have shown that weariness is among the essential sparks for taking part in betting activity. With barely any games accessible to guess on nowadays, associations like PayPerhead.net, a sportsbook programming organization, have gotten progressively inventive in giving their clients the betting amusement their players crave. Simulated sports and eSports, two newcomers to the betting field of play, were at that point set to become multibillion-dollar enterprises some time before COVID-19 upset customary games betting. eSports (additionally called electronic games, e-sports, or Esports) is a type of rivalry by computer games.

Esports regularly appear as sorted out, multiplayer computer game rivalries, especially between proficient players, independently or as teams.

Unlike esports, which are constrained by people, reproduction sports are involved exclusively of games between a PC’s AI (man-made brainpower) and are commonly founded on customary games, for example, b-ball or football.

In expansion to the previously mentioned advanced occasions that speculators can wager on, PayPerHead bookies are likewise ready to offer pony race wagering, computerized gambling club gaming, and live seller club gaming on blackjack, baccarat or roulette.

Unlike conventional games wagering, the new advanced gaming, horse hustling, and online club gaming permit players to wager on a much lower financial plan, and can some of the time convey huge payouts. Therefore, PayPerHead.net bookmakers are seeing this downturn in sports wagering as extra invaluable, on the grounds that already sports-wagering just players are currently adding an entirely different collection to their standard betting activities.

As an ever increasing number of individuals look the web for job telecommute openings, new bookies are finding a totally different specialty in the online sportsbook and club industry.

PayPerHead Agents See Huge Uptick in Online Casino Gaming

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Jun-10 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — PayPerHead.com, a sportsbook technology leader, wanted a grasp of how the sports shutdown affected online casino gaming.

The company’s revenue results showed that sports bettors turned to casino gaming in droves. Overall casino revenue rose from March 11, the day the NBA shut down their season, to the end of May.

The most significant percentage surge came via live dealer casinos. From January to May, PayPerHead.com’s live dealer casino segment saw a revenue increase of 317%. The growth percentage dwarfs the digital casino revenue increase of 185%.

The numbers suggest that live dealer casino play is growing on an accelerated trajectory. What could account for the difference in revenue growth percentages?

PayPerHead’s Product Manager Nate Johnson spoke about how live dealer casinos bring “Vegas-like excitement.” Per Johnson, “Sportsbook software allows players to stream live dealer games on their tablets and mobile phones. Digital casinos use animation, and its cool animation. But many casino players still crave the human element.”

“Numbers don’t lie. If you’re a PayPerHead agent that doesn’t offer a live dealer casino, add it to your offerings. Las Vegas may never be the same. And, I’ll put our dealers up against any dealer you find in a brick and mortar casino,” Johnson said.

The biggest question is whether the growth in both digital casino and live dealer casino play will continue after the pandemic. Here again, it’s good news for PayPerHead agents.

PayPerHead’s revenue stats imply that sports shutdowns didn’t cause an upward trend and that the growth in casino play won’t stop anytime soon. The uptick in digital casino handle rose from $63.519M in January to $93.323M in February. From February to March, the digital casino handle rose to $110.758M.

Handle in PayPerHead.com agent run live dealer casinos rose from $9.95M in January to $12.02M in February to $22.82M in March. The numbers imply that casino play, both digital and live dealer, should continue to rise even after regular sports return. The growth trend should remain intact well into 2021 and beyond. Johnson said that when sports return, it may help raise casino gaming revenue. “Sports bettors wager on casino games while casino players don’t always wager on sports. If anything, PayPerHead agents are likely to see an uptick in all gaming segments once major US sports return.”

PayPerHead® Sportsbook Software Helps Online Bookies Stay in Business

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-May-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Major U.S. Sportsbooks saw betting numbers cut in half year over year in March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation, putting a stop to major events, including sports.

Normally one of the busiest months in the betting industry, the American Gaming Association estimates that profits for the brick and mortar gambling hubs have taken a financial hit of approximately 60% overall, and well over 500,000 workers have been affected.

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill U.S., which operates sportsbooks in Nevada, New Jersey, and several other states told ESPN, “I do not see a scenario where [the pandemic] goes on sort of too long and somehow the industry withers away… The fundamentals of the sports betting business are pretty strong.”

PayPerHead and the Sportsbook owners that partner with them understand that the single most important fundamental of sports betting is entertainment. In response, they have become increasingly creative in providing their customers with the gambling entertainment their players crave.

The upside is, independent bookmakers are discovering that their clients who normally only wager on sports are becoming more and more engaged in digital offerings such as iRacing, eSports, casino gaming, and simulated sports. Essentially, this pandemic is creating a whole new kind of bettor.

Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead® said, “Gone are the days that sports bettors will go into hibernation the day after Superbowl. This [coronavirus pandemic] has been rough, but it’s also got a silver lining. Our agents are turning their players into horse bettors, eSports enthusiasts, iRacing bettors, sim sports fans, and casino gamers. Those bettors won’t just walk away from all that when sports start up again; now they’ll be cross-platform players.”

Indeed, it seems clear that independent online gaming is growing exponentially in the face of the pandemic, and existing bookies and new agents alike are discovering that they can have a viable and lucrative home business by using a turnkey sportsbook operating system like that offered by PayPerHead.

In fact, many new bookmakers who may have hesitated to get into the business before are getting started now, and “doing quite well,” according to Johnson.

PayPerHead made an unprecedented move in response to the pandemic, offering its software services free of charge until major U.S. sports return. Says Johnson of PayPerHead’s offering, “It’s a pretty good start-up opportunity for a new agent; you can’t beat free. Bookies can test the waters and get their new business off the ground. With no deposit required and free access to all the prime features of the system, new agents can just concentrate on building their player base and making money, without any of the overhead costs normally associated with starting an online sportsbook ”

About PayPerHead:

PayPerHead, founded in 1997, is the industry’s leading per head online bookie software, providing user-friendly tools and unmatched customer service to independent bookmakers around the world.

Despite No Sports, PayPerHead® Keeps Players In Action

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Apr-30 — /EPR Network/ — While major sporting events have been canceled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action.

With wagering available on eSports, simulated sports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, digital casino gaming, live dealer casino, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Studies have shown that during times of economic recession, war, or crises, people turn to entertainment to ease anxiety and stress. Books, films, gambling, digital gaming, and social media are all ways that people “check out” of their current reality, even if for just a few hours of relief.

Likewise, studies indicate that retired adults, whose daily activities might be the most similar to unemployed citizens or citizens who are sheltering in place during social distancing protocols, are more likely to gamble for stimulation and for boredom relief rather than for winning money. In interviews, gamblers have indicated that boredom is among the primary motivators for engaging in gambling activity

With few sports available to speculate on these days, organizations like PayPerhead, a sportsbook software company, have become increasingly creative in providing their customers with the gambling entertainment their players crave.

Simulated sports and eSports, two newcomers to the gambling field of play, were already set to become multibillion-dollar industries long before COVID-19 disrupted traditional sports betting.

eSports (also called electronic sports, e-sports, or Esports) is a form of competition by video games. Esports often take the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams.

Unlike esports, which are controlled by humans, simulation sports are comprised solely of games between a computer’s AI (artificial intelligence) and are typically based on traditional sporting events such as basketball or football.

In addition to the above mentioned digital events that gamblers can bet on, PayPerHead bookies are also able to offer horse race betting, digital casino gaming, and live dealer casino gaming on blackjack, baccarat or roulette.

Unlike traditional sports betting, the new digital gaming, horse racing, and online casino gaming allow players to bet on a much lower budget, and can sometimes deliver big payouts. For that reason, PayPerHead bookmakers are finding this downturn in sports betting to be extra advantageous, because previously sports-betting-only players are now adding a whole new repertoire to their regular gambling activities.

As more and more people search the internet for work from home opportunities, new bookies are finding a whole new niche in the online sportsbook and casino industry. With unheard-of rate drops (PayPerHead is offering free service until major U.S. sports start again) during this coronavirus crises, now is a great time to start.

About PayPerHead:

PayPerHead, founded in 1997, is the industry’s leading per head online bookie software, providing user-friendly tools and unmatched customer service to independent bookmakers around the world.

PayPerHead® Steps Up To Help Small Business Owners

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, 2020-Apr-15 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — In response to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations around the world are exploring relief efforts to assist freelancers, entrepreneurs and small business owners that are being financially hit by the COVID-19 crisis. PayPerHead® is one such organization.

While businesses outside of the healthcare sector are producing hand sanitizer, masks and other supplies to help stop the spread of the virus, many software and tech companies are doing what they can to help keep the economy afloat by putting into place deep price cuts and educational content. As a result, they are helping mass numbers of the newly unemployed build home businesses and work online.

PayPerHead®, a sportsbook software company based out of San Jose, Costa Rica, is a Software as a Service (SaaS) organization that is making big strides in helping people start a new business that can weather this storm or stay alive in an industry they are already part of.

While major sporting events have been cancelled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action. With wagering available on eSports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, casino gaming, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Slashing rates to zero, PayPerHead® recently announced that all of their services, except those that entail outside software costs, will be offered to bookie agents free of charge until the first major sporting event begins again, or by September 1, 2020, whichever comes first.

Market research has positioned the pay per head sportsbook and casino industry to eclipse $155 billion by 2024. “If ever there was a good time to seek out an industry that can survive an economic downturn, now is it.” said Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead®. “We know that times are tough, but we’ve been down this road before. When businesses were going bankrupt during the housing crisis of 2008, we stayed in the game. We’ll do it again and we’ll help others to do it too.”

Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster

Professional Chess Coach and Author Mato Jelic Shares Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster

Adelaide, South Australia, 2018-Apr-29 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Becoming a Grandmaster is a coveted dream for all chess enthusiasts around the world, but not all of them can make it. Successful coach and popular author Mato Jelic has recently discussed how to become a Grandmaster.

Mato Jelic, a highly experienced professional chess coach and the author or two chess books, has recently shared useful tips to help chess enthusiasts in their pursuit to become a Grandmaster. Mato is the founder of one of the world’s most popular YouTube channels related to chess, through which he offers free online chess lessons.

The World Chess Federation (FIDE) has its own set of guidelines and requirements for becoming a Grandmaster. The players must attend official FIDE tournaments and clinch top positions on at least three occasions to qualify for the process. They should continue to attend such competitions known as norms, until their score reaches the 2,500 mark.

Improving his or her chess skills is undoubtedly the foremost requirement for anyone to become a Grandmaster. According to Mato, this can be accomplished by following the tips mentioned below.

  • Learning the tactics: These are the move sequences that can put a player in an advantageous situation and defend or capture pieces. Forks, discovered attacks, and pinning are some of the most important tactics in the game of chess.
  • Knowledge of strategies: Once a player reaches the advanced level, they must have a core strategy for each match. Mato also stresses on the importance of strategies such as Nimzo Defense, Sicilian Defense, spacing strategies, and many others.
  • Proper execution of endgame situations: A clever endgame strategy is extremely important because a poor endgame can very easily spoil all the previous good work.
  • Regular practise: Any aspiring Grandmaster must practice as often as possible against top level players with a thorough understanding of the advanced tactics and strategies. Mato recommends joining a chess club or popular chess sites such as Chess.com

In addition to mastering chess skills, Mato mentions that the different personality traits of an individual can make a serious impact on his or her chances of becoming a Grandmaster. “Ultimately, Passion, inherent talent, competitiveness, discipline, along with a supportive environment, can make all the difference between success and failure,” he says.

A resident of Adelaide, South Australia, Mato is the founder of Chess School SA, a training school that offers chess classes throughout the Adelaide Metro and across the Country Schools in South Australia. He also runs many popular training programs for kids.

Instructor Certification from World Leaders in Self-Defense & Personal Protection

SAFE International™, a global organization that offers world-leading self-defense and personal-protection instruction, is hosting an instructor certification program in Ottawa from March 9 – 11, 2018 at Plyomax Fitness, 3771 Spratt Road, Ottawa, ON.

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, January 05, 2018 — SAFE International™, a global organization that offers world-leading self-defense and personal-protection instruction, is hosting an instructor certification program in Ottawa from March 9 – 11, 2018 at Plyomax Fitness, 3771 Spratt Road, Ottawa, ON.

As part of the organization’s mission to empower 500,000 women and girls in self-defense by 2020, the instructor certification program aims to spread the reach of life-saving safety information and physical skills from a curriculum designed to reach some of society’s most vulnerable to violence in often limited time.

SAFE International’s self-defense curriculum has been honed, tested, and proven effective over the course of more than twenty years. It is currently taught by experts in security and personal protection, reaches leaders in public safety around the world, and is delivered regularly to teens, women and youth in a framework that promotes responsible citizenship and teaches survival skills that are effective no matter someone’s age or size.

“We want to teach the next generation of teachers now,” says Chris Roberts, SAFE International’s founder and managing director. “We know that the best way to reach the most people with safety and survival skills that work is to share our expertise with as many instructors as possible. Outside instructors who take our training bring their own knowledge, skills and experiences into the classroom and it enriches the learning environment for everyone who attends.”

The instructor certification program will be led by founder Chris Roberts and instructor Richard Dimitri, a world leader in personal protection and security training. With skills and expertise amassed over two lifetimes in the professional realm of self-defense and violence prevention, Roberts and Dimitri team up to deliver this program with passion and purpose. Their mission is fueled by evidence-backed information, personal and professional experiences with real-world violence.

“A lot of people believe that self-defense training and martial arts are similar. They’re not. When it comes to violence there are psycho-social influences and behavioural elements that exist in uncontrolled environments with many variables that simply don’t apply when people are sparring on the mat or in the ring where rules exist. To effectively deliver self-defense training these dynamics need to be addressed, dissected and explored long before physical training is introduced,” says Roberts.

“And physical applications need to account for the differences in how violence exists in the real word versus in the classroom,” says Dimitri. “The reason I teach this program and work so closely with SAFE International™ is because I know what we’re teaching works.”

SAFE International™ believes anyone who is interested will benefit from the instructor certification program and registration is open to anyone interested in attending. Previous certification has included a range of attendees from martial artists, workplace safety and violence prevention coordinators, fitness instructors, parents, teachers, and others interested in learning and passing on credible information about staying safe.
