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.”

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.”

PayPerHead Releases Premium Casino Platform

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Nov-11 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Payperhead.com, the world’s leading bookie software provider has released one of the most advanced digital casino platforms in the per head industry. Called the Premium Casino, the company expects the newest addition to their current suite of bookmaking platforms to help customers ride the growing online casino gaming wave.

In 2007, 24% of U.S. citizens had visited an online casino. By 2016, that number had grown to 64%. Just last year, the U.S. online gambling market, counting sports betting, casino wagering, bingo, and miscellaneous betting games, had grown to $53.9 billion. From 2020 through 2027, Gaming analysts expect that number to grow by a compound annual rate of 11%.

Digital casinos saw a sharp increase in the first half of 2020 after major sports leagues like the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League shut down their seasons. Also, the NCAA canceled their annual basketball tournament which had become the most wagered on sports event in the United States, even surpassing the Super Bowl. Because of the lack of available betting options, players turned their attention to online casinos and the variety of entertainment they bring.

Many of those players continue to make wagers in digital casinos. Gaming platforms like PayPerHead’s premium option provides advantages that other types of online digital casinos don’t at the moment. The company’s Premium Casino offers more blackjack tables, high-definition 3D games, and is mobile compatible with every available operating software including Android and Apple.

According to Payperhead.com Product Manager Nate Johnson, the company didn’t have to find a new casino platform to offer their clients. PayPerHead’s customers were happy with the live dealer casino option as well as the current online digital casino, but after seeing how much action both had driven during the coronavirus pandemic, the organization decided to provide new offerings.

“We’ve added a new live dealer casino about a month ago. And now, with the Premium Digital Casino, our customers can offer their players even more with hundreds of additional games. When our bookie agents do that, they make more money,” Johnson said.

Johnson also added that PayPerHead’s goal has always been and will always be to help their customers to be as successful as possible. “We get paid when our pay per head agents succeed. If they fail, we fail, which is why we are always looking to add features and tools and profit-making platforms like the new Premium Casino.”

The company’s Agent Payment Solution (APS) is the only proprietary platform in the pph sportsbook industry that allows for online collections and payments.

U.S. Presidential Election Wagering Heats Up

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Oct-08 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election on Nov. 3 has already proven one of the most contentious in American politics’ history. From now until the first Tuesday in November, neither candidate, incumbent Donald Trump nor challenger Joe Biden, figures to become less combative. And local bookies have already taken a significant amount of bets from players; meaning this could be the most profitable election for independent bookmakers in US history according to Payperhead.com.

The Democrats’ dislike of Trump and Republicans’ fear for a Biden Presidency has already led to one of the most wagered upon Presidential Elections ever. On Sep. 1, a leading sportsbook accepted a massive over $67,000 wager on Donald Trump.

Although Biden remains the favorite, wagers like that have driven Trump’s odds down on sportsbook software platforms like PayPerHead. Since the large wager, Trump and Biden have had their first debate, Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris and Mike Pence have also debated, and President Trump has tested positive for the coronavirus.

A Supreme Court Justice Senate Confirmation Hearing and two more Presidential Debates could determine where wagering action lands before Election Day. The second debate between Trump and Biden is on Oct. 15, while the third organized verbal showdown takes place on Oct. 22.

In 2016, PayPerHead saw an uptick in U.S. Presidential Election betting about two weeks before American citizens headed to the polls. The wagering trends appear to be on a similar path with the bulk of election bets most likely happening in the fifteen or so days before the election, just like what happened four years ago.

In the last Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton held a percentage lead in the national polls with about two weeks to go. Clinton remained the favorite, but Trump gained more wagers the closer the U.S. got to choosing their next president. Overall wagering, bets on Clinton and Trump, also significantly increased in the final stretch before the election.

PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson expects action in the final fifteen days before Nov. 3 to resemble what happened in 2016 with one caveat, PayPerHead doesn’t know where the action will land. Johnson said, “We saw action on Trump. This year could be different with players backing Biden. Not that our agents care…but they love all the action.”

“Bookie agents on the PayPerHead platform don’t care so much about where the action goes because they’ve got tools to manage action no matter which candidate their players prefer,” Johnson said. He added, “We expect a flood of wagers on our platform after the second debate. If Trump performs well, everyone will know he’s over the coronavirus. Hopefully, they both perform well, and our agents see action on both candidates.”

Bookies Clamoring for Safe and Secure Ways to Collect and Get Paid from Players

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-07 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018, U.S. based organizations created online sportsbooks to compete with offshore sportsbooks, also called post-ups.

Now the times have changed and as the local bookie business starts to gain in popularity, so do the demands of satisfying the players. And it’s PayPerHead’s proprietary Agent Payment Solution that is making it safe, convenient and practical for bookies from all walks of life to manage and grow their businesses.

Individuals have also become online sportsbook owners. In addition, existing bookies have taken their operations to the Internet. In most cases, bookies have become “pay per head agents”. A pay per head agent uses software to run their online sportsbook company. But although the software does some things well, most pay per head software struggles to meet agent needs.

Bookies must figure out on their own how to collect or pay players. In a social distancing age, that can cause major delays and disruptions in a bookie’s sportsbook operation. Not only that, but bookies cannot compete with offshore post-ups because they must keep their services at a local level.

Created in 1997, PayPerHead, a leading pph sportsbook software provider, has developed a mobile online payment interface, the Agent Payment Solution (APS®). PayPerHead’s agents can pay or collect from players via the APS in a matter of seconds. The APS works like PayPal but unlike PayPal, agents that use the APS mustn’t pay exorbitant fees.

The social distancing advantages are obvious. PayPerHead Product Manager Nate Johnson, though, said that’s just one advantage the Agent Payment Solution provides.

Johnson explains that, “We want our agents to be safe first of all. And not only that, but the APS allows agents to expand their businesses. It’s a mobile agent and player payment system that allows our agents to say, ‘Hey, you can pay and get paid in the same way as any offshore post-up operation.’ That allows our agents to increase their player footprint, which means they grow their sportsbook businesses, which means they make more money. Also, they don’t have to be restricted to the same area and can recruit players in other ways.”

Johnson noted that players can send money to their agents via credit cards, Bitcoin, eCheck, and even Moneygram. He added that PayPerHead believes the APS will revolutionize the pph sportsbook industry with its seamless technology. “With the APS, it’s all about confidentiality and security. We’ve created the PayPal for our industry. The difference is that the APS doesn’t charge a fee for every transaction the way PayPal does. In addition, our agents can make as much money as they want because they can promote their sportsbooks to players all over the world if they wish.”

Also, Johnson said the Agent Payment Solution provides peace of mind. “It’s a great thing to know that you’re going to get paid safely and securely. We’re the first and only to come up with an answer to that question, the most important question that pay per head bookies have. With the Agent Payment Solution, all our customers must do is go onto the system, go to Pay Me, then continue to the payout process and that’s it.”

About PayPerHead:
Founded in 1997, PayPerHead is the industry’s leading online sportsbook software provider. The company prides itself on being a sports betting tech leader and customer-centric organization with over 20 years of experience. Currently, PayPerHead provides sportsbook software solutions to over 15,000 bookies with over 75,000 players.

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.”

About PayPerHead:
Founded in 1997, PayPerHead is the industry’s leading online sportsbook software provider. The company prides itself on being a sports betting tech leader and customer-centric organization. Currently, PayPerHead provides sportsbook software solutions to over 15,000 bookies with over 75,000 players.

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.
