Understanding Principles of Bookmaking

There are a few things you need to understand about the world of Sports Betting before you can be able to make the best decisions for your business. There are many ways to go and things to look at, as this is a very vast business, but to sum it up, we’re going to make this easy for you; there is the Old School of Bookmaking and there is the New School of Bookmaking, and we’re going to tell you a little bit about both.

How was Bookmaking done in the old days?

Remember we’re talking about different times; 15 or even 10 years ago, things were still very different in the sports betting industry. Let’s not even go into how things were done 30 years ago, because that’s a whole different story. Let’s focus on 10 years ago and see what a Bookie’s day and week looked like back then. We’re talking about hard work and long hours in the office. A bookie’s job would start early in the morning, checking out reports, opening up lines for the day’s events so that players could start betting. Imagine a big office with somewhere from 20 to 50, or sometimes even more, 100 or 200 computers all in the same room, wagering clerks in every station, phones ringing off the hook, Customer Service in one room, Payroll people in another, line movers up on stage doing their thing and a thousand other things happening at the same time in different departments.

Now, imagine you own that operation, you’re the bookie here, you own the whole thing and need to be on top of every detail to make sure things are running the way they should, managing your risk, paying bills, salaries, paying for equipment and software.

Long story short, it was not easy and it’s safe to say it was quite expensive to own your own Sportsbook. Not to mention the fact that you would probably have to spend most of your day, every day, in the office.

How is Bookmaking done today?

There are still operations of many kinds and sizes, but the main thing you want to know about right now is that everything we mentioned before, you can forget about it.
