Pay Per Head Racebook
AcePerHead.com has a fully inclusive book, that also gives agents the option to offer their players access to bet in the Racebook, which has over a 150 horse tracks around the world. The feeds and odds for each race come directly from the tracks, and there is absolutely no extra charge to enable this extra feature.
Some of the more famous and most popular tracks that are available to bet on are, Arlington Park, Australia – B, Australia-A, Belmont Park, Cal Expo, Churchill Downs, Derby Lane Eve, Derby Lane Mat, Emerald Downs, Evangeline Downs, Fairmount Park, Finger Lakes, Freehold Raceway, Golden Gate, Gulfstream, Harrahs Philadelphia, Hastings Park, Hawthorne Harness, Hoosier Park, Indiana Downs, Jacksonville Mat, Jacksonville Night, Laurel Park, Lone Star Park, Los Alamitos, Meadows, Meadowlands Harness, Mohawk Raceway, Mountaineer Park, Northfield Park, Northville Downs, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Eve, Parx Racing, Penn National, Pocono Downs, Prairie Meadows, Remington Park, Santa Anita Park, Saratoga Harness, Tampa Bay Downs, Thistledown, Tucson, Turf Paradise, Wheeling D Eve, Wheeling D Mat, Woodbine, Yonkers Raceway, and many more. Not only do players have the option to bet on the traditional Thoroughbred races, but there are also track options to wager on Harness Racing and Greyhound Dog races.
One of the best parts about offering horse racing is that as an agent you have the ability to directly control the limits and payouts that you are willing to offer your players. Since an agent does not have the same pool volume of bets that a typical race track receives on each race, then it is common for the entire Online Racebook industry to not pay out the full track odds, and instead have capped odds and payouts. Any regular horse bettor will completely understand the capped odds and payouts, because they understand they are not betting at the track, but do have the benefit of being able to bet hundreds of tracks around the world from the comfort of their own home, or from the palm of their hand on their mobile device.
In addition there are multiple different betting options that players can wager on when betting horses, like Win, Place, Show, Exacta, Exacta Box, Exacta Reverse, Trifecta Box, Daily Double, Pick 3, Superfecta and Superfecta Box. Specific limits and payout odds can be set specifically for each of these types of racing bets, or some can be completely disallowed.
The Horse Racing industry is its own Billion dollar industry, so its important to give players the access to wager on it, because it is extremely hard to win at, which means a higher potential to increase an agent's bottom line. Once again the more options that an agent gives their players to bet on, then the higher probability that the players are going to lose even more money over the long term. The Racebook can also attract players who may not bet the major sports, but once they see they can bet everything in one place, then there is a good chance they will eventually begin betting the major sports as well.
Profitability in Horse Racing – Is it worth it?
A lot of bookies do not dedicate enough time to acquiring players who enjoy betting the pony’s, I believe this is in part because horse racing is not a year-round event and the misconception that it is only comprised of small bettors, who are not lucrative in the long run.
In all reality, horse racing is the one product that consistently yields the highest hold percentages, which means if you have a large enough customer base, you can earn a healthy profit from it.
Now, of course, the key to profitability in horse racing, aside from volume is to have a reliable pay per head horse betting software. I say this is the key because, when it comes to C and D tracks you need to make sure you have strict limits because we all know these races are easily fixed and you don’t want to get burned.
Personally, I have had the best experience with Ace Per Head dot com, they allow me to set my limits and max payouts per racetrack and player without any hassle. Their pay per head horse betting software has one of the best uptimes I’ve seen, I normally get complaints from my players about erroneous past post bets or the out of whack starting times, or some tracks not loading, and scratches not being updated in real-time. This is not the case with www.AcePerHead.com, they also offer a great selection of tracks across the country, so you can widen your customer search and not restrict yourself to East or West Coast players.
Once I moved my package over to them and saw first-hand how good their racebook software was, I had no doubt that my next step would be to dedicate some time and effort into increasing the number of horse racing players I had, I now have a healthy regular customer base that generates an even healthier profit for me.
I won’t lie to you and say it’s all been profits, I’ve had bad weeks, there is nothing you can do when a great underdog takes everyone by surprise, but the ability to set max payouts on a track by track basis has saved me a ton of money. And the guys over at Ace Per Head are always alert to spot a potential threat and they let you know right away, it is up to you if you want to do something about it or not, they will never overstep their boundaries, which is an issue I had at a couple of other places, which sadly ended up costing me some very good customers and a lot of money.
Invest in horse racing players, take advantage of the high hold percentages, and watch the money roll in.
