As of this writing, it might not seem like the best time to get started with online bookie software. After all, the college football playoffs have ended. Sure, the NFL playoffs are going, but the season will be over soon. For all intents and purposes, it might not seem like the best time to get started with your own online sportsbook. Of course, that’s wrong: there’s no bad time to get started with an online sportsbook. Indeed, you can get started with an online sportsbook for every season, whenever you want. In this blog, we’ll go over what you can expect and when, as well as some of the features that you can look for from our site.
Online Bookie Software in the Winter
Yes, the NFL will end with the Super Bowl in February. However, sports will still be going strong. Basketball will be even bigger around that time: the NBA season will be heating up. In just a few weeks, college basketball will start going to their conference tournaments. That’s the perfect time to get started with an online sportsbook. You’ll have the fans of the biggest teams, as they go for glory in some of the biggest conferences. The ACC, the SEC, the Big 12, Big 10 and more – they’ll have all of their conference tournaments, which means that you’ll have games all of the time.
Of course, as you’ve probably guessed, that leads into a perfect time to get started with an online sportsbook: March Madness. Yes, that’s one of the most bet events in the entire world. It’s right on par with the Super Bowl. Unlike the World Cup, it comes every year. This is one of the most riveting events for players that are very into basketball as well as those who just get caught up in the moment. March Madness is perfect for casual players because it gives them something to talk about with co-workers, friends, that kind of thing. All sorts of people who would never ordinarily bet on basketball do so at March Madness.
Baseball and Hockey
The NHL season starts in October and ends in June. During that time, you may have some players who are truly into their teams betting on your games. With the arrival of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in April, that gauntlet can draw in the die hards as well as the people who live in a city with a team that’s gotten hot. A run through the hockey playoffs can bring a city together unlike perhaps any other sport, in large part because the playoffs are so long. For the team that wins the Stanley Cup, these playoffs are do or die, sudden death, for two months straight. That can bring in all sorts of players to your sportsbook.
That being said, baseball provides more day to day action than pretty much any other sports. While NBA basketball and NHL hockey have eighty games or so a piece during the regular season, as well as many in the playoffs, baseball gives your fans the most games to bet on period. With over 160 games guaranteed during the regular season, your players will be able to find games that they want to play. The nature of baseball encourages them to play them a lot, too.
For example, baseball is usually played six days a week. Obviously, there are exceptions throughout the season, but often Mondays or Thursdays are the most likely “travel days,” which are days when the team doesn’t have a game. We’ve had so many successful bookies who may not have known that much about baseball be able to be very successful with it on our site. See, baseball’s continual nature tends to draw players in. for example, if someone bets on their favorite baseball team, and they lose on a Friday, well… there’s always tomorrow. Maybe then, they’ll be a more favorable pitching matchup. Perhaps the wind will be blowing out in a different direction, the manager will go with a different lineup… and so forth.
If you can incorporate baseball into your sportsbook, as so many of our bookies have, you’ll be in great shape. Baseball lasts all summer. The games start in April and end in November. Of course, by August, NFL training camp will be in full swing. The preseason games will start then, and then the start of the NCAA season, and following that, the NFL will kick off in September. See? In just a few paragraphs, we went from “the downtime for starting your sportsbook” to showing off all of the great sports that you can have your sportsbook based around.
A Sportsbook for You
You might be looking at all of this and think: “that all sounds great, and it sure seems like I can get a lot of players to my sportsbook with these other sports, but I don’t necessarily know that much about them.” That’s perfectly fine. That’s completely understandable. You don’t have to be an ex pro athlete (or analyst) yourself to run a successful sportsbook. Indeed, here at Sports Per Head, we do everything in our power to empower our bookies. We make it easy to run a sportsbook covering sports that you may not be 100% comfortable with on your own.
By giving our bookies the tools they need to be successful, they can manage their own books as they see fit. So, maybe you don’t know that much about basketball or hockey. That’s perfectly fine. You can go with the betting lines that everyone else is using. That way, you can still offer the games to your players who want to play them. You can still reap the rewards. By that same token, maybe you’re someone that does know a lot about those games. Perhaps you’re an expert. Maybe you know quite a bit, and disagree with the accepted line on the game.
That’s fine, too! We constructed our sportsbook so that you can make it into what you want it to be. So, if you want to alter the line, you can do. Move the line around how you’d like. Make your sportsbook yours. You can make the line whatever you want it to be. That way, you can draw in all of the players that no one else is able to get. When you know your sport, when you know your players, the sky’s the limit. We’re here to offer you as much (or as little) help that you need.
More than Sports
Of course, while the sports go in and out of season, some things never do. We offer an online casino through Sports Per Head. It has all of your favorite table games, all the best games that your players want to play. Better still, you’re giving these games to your players in a great way for them to enjoy the games best: from their own homes. They don’t have to drive anyway. They don’t have to get dressed to head to the casino. They just have to turn on their mobile device and get all of the casino action. After all, casinos don’t have an off-season. There’s no “regular season” for poker, or any other table game.
These games can be played year round. At Sports Per Head, your players can get all of the games they want during any season, during any time. We have weekly packages available on all sports, so you can offer your players the games they want to play. In fact, we have so many games available; you may be able to offer them the games they don’t know they want to play yet.
