There is a middle range in the price per head sportsbook industry, occupied by platforms that charge slightly more than the rock bottom of $5 per betting client. They do not offer all of the bells and whistles that those at the top of the industry offer, but along with a slightly higher price point, they should offer more in terms of features and ease of access.

In the case of 247pph.com, though, that really is not the case. The price point is higher (starting at $10 per head). However, it is really unclear what paying as much as twice per head as some of the value books gets you as an agent. It is hard to tell what sports are offered, and while the website touts its facility as safe from a Category 4 storm and mentions its diesel-powered generator in case of electricity outage, as far as the nuts and bolts of the site, you don’t get much information at all.

The top feature, though, is the four-week free trial, so you get a chance to find out answers to all of your questions, but the lack of information on the website is aggravating. Even with that long free trial, 247pph.com just gets a 59 out of 100.

PPH REVIEW DETAILS

Price 7/15 Points

If you want to sign up with 247pph.com, you can expect a weekly price per head of $10, at least to start. The website does not indicate the points at which that price goes down, but that usually has to do with whether or not you want to offer extra features, and how many bettors you have – the more bettors, the lower the price per head. The comparison chart between 247pph.com and what it calls the “leading pay per head” platforms, ranging from $12 to $30 per head, does not seem accurate based on a review of the competition. Misleading marketing materials like that could be a red flag, as you may not want to link up your bank accounts to a company that misrepresents the competition so boldly.

Promos 8/10 Points

In comparison to some of the competition in the pph sportsbook platform industry, 247pph.com offers one of the more generous free trial periods, allowing agents four free weeks without a deposit. With a full month to consider whether a platform is right for your clients, you get to run through three weekly cycles to see how the process works.

Agent Admin 13/15 Points

It seems that reporting and player management are two of the better features at 247pph.com. In addition to the basics of weekly and daily activity reporting, you also have access to such features as player payment tracking, which can be helpful if the player comes back with a dispute, and real-time live action reporting, which can come in handy if you need to notice which side of a point spread or moneyline is getting out of balance.

Sportsbook 8/15 Points

You have to sign up with 247pph.com to get access to the full list of sports that they offer, which is a bit of a concern. A lot of the competitors will list all of their available sports, and at $10 per head, you should expect the basics (basketball, baseball, soccer, football and hockey) along with some extras, such as UFC/MMA, tennis, golf, rugby, cricket and the like. 247pph.com does offer live in-game wagering.

Casino 6/10 Points

You might wonder why you need to offer casino gaming if you want to run a sportsbook. Here’s the deal – you’re now paying an administrative fee for each client that you have, which takes some of the grind off your back as far as running the book, but now you need to add revenue streams. With 247pph.com, you do have access to basic casino software, so that your betting clients can play games – which will bring you money over time, as the house always wins over the long haul at these games.

Horses 3/5 Points

If you sign up with 247pph.com as a price per head wagering platform, you will be able to offer access to races at over 70 tracks to your client base. There are some that offer more, up to 120 tracks, but as far as your primary horse racing events, your betting clients should have access to most, if not all, of the races they want here.

Call Center 3/10 Points

If you want to find the 247pph.com phone number, you have to click the “Sign Up Free” account. Most of the price per head sportsbook platforms have their phone number on the top of the home page and also offer live chat as an option, but you don’t get that here. That might seem like a subtle change, but in a world in which we want convenience (and so do our sports betting clients), those are clicks that some of your clients won’t take if they need help – and if convenience drops, they will go to one of your competitors to bet.

Payment Methods 1/5 Points

If you look on the 247pph.com website, you won’t find a list of available payment methods. Instead, there is just a link for you to “sign up” when you are ready. Given the amount of information available on competitor websites, that is really unacceptable. In the industry, you can expect such options as wire transfer and gift cards, and in some cases cryptocurrency (especially bitcoin), but it is not clear from the site what this platform offers.

Mobile Friendliness 10/15 Points

When it comes to price per head sportsbooks, you need a platform that allows you full mobile optimization. Otherwise, you will not gain any clientele, because your bettors want to run everything from their smartphones – and you will want the same convenience on the agent end. The mobile optimization on 247pph.com is solid, as the graphics are pleasant, the text is easy to read, and it is also simple to toggle from one page to the next on the admin side.
