The football season is considered the “high season” in sports betting. Now is the perfect time to market your bookie business for the football season.


One of the biggest benefits of partnering with a quality Pay Per Head service like RDG Corp is the 24/7 around-the-clock customer support provided by the call center. You no longer have to field calls from players in the middle of the night.

All problems are solved by highly experienced call center agents that have years of experience in the industry. Support is there for the bookie as well who can call a customer service agent at any time.


One of the most important aspects of running a successful bookie business is the collection of payments and disbursement of winnings. Remember, it is the difference between what you pay out and what you collect in losing bets plus juice that is a bookie’s hold percentage.

That number is also important because it is a bookie’s gross profit. Ultimately, RDG Corp is in the business of helping maintain a high hold percentage to make your bookmaking enterprise a success.
