Discount Pay Per Head Bookie Software Review

DiscountPayPerHead, true to its name, occupies the value end of the pay per head sportsbook platform industry. You pay $5 per client per week for them to administer your book for you. There are a number of $5 pay per head platforms, and so if you are looking at that price point, you have a large number of choices. One of the issues with DiscountPayPerHead has to do with the lack of information available about their deal on their website; another has to do with the difficulty getting in touch with support.

When you are looking into such a commitment as a pay per head contract, you deserve more information upfront, and a better communication system, than what DiscountPayPerHead offers. As a result, this site gets a 45 out of 100.

Price 11/15 Points

It is hard to beat the price that DiscountPayPerHead offers its agent clients — $5 per week per player. However, the website does not indicate whether or not you have to track your inactive bettors yourself in order to avoid being billed for them, or whether they track the betting themselves and only charge for active clients. There are pay per head sportsbook platforms that charge $5 per head per week and do track that for you.

Promos 5/10 Points

There is not much information about DiscountPayPerHead’s services on its website, in terms of specific information about offerings. However, you do get a two-week trial period without having to put down a deposit. That is one of the longest trial periods at the value end of the spectrum; in that time frame, you will be able to get your clients up and running, and you will be able to get a feel for how everything works.

Agent Admin 7/15 Points

At the value end of the pay per head sportsbook platform, you should be able to expect to get daily and weekly activity reports on your clients. You should be able to track individual player accounts and impose limits on their action when needed. You should also be able to monitor each event and prop that you have posted for your clients’ wagering consideration, and you should be able to shift lines and odds if the action on one side gets too heavy. It is not clear from the DiscountPayPerHead website what is available in terms of administrative controls, so discuss that with the sales staff.

Sportsbook 8/15 Points

As a value pph sportsbook platform, DiscountPayPerHead should offer your betting clients to pro and college basketball and football, hockey, soccer and baseball. It is not clear just what sports are offered from the website, so you will want to ask about offerings when you make your call to the sales department. You will also want to ask about the availability of setting up side props and adjusting your lines, should you feel the need to make a change when the wagering gets out of balance.

Casino 3/10 Points

Casino offerings are definitely a necessity if you are running your sportsbook on a price per head gambling site, because you have to pay a fee each week for each client, and you need additional revenue in order to cover those fees. It is not clear exactly what casino gaming is available if you sign up with DiscountPayPerHead, but basic expectations should include blackjack, poker, slots, roulette and access to live dealers.

Horses 1/5 Points

Most price per head sports betting platforms offer access to wagering at horse tracks. In the value end of the business, you should expect access to at least 60 tracks across North America for your betting clients. The DiscountPayPerHead website does not indicate how diverse their horse race betting options are, so that is a question for you to bring up if you contact their sales department.

Call Center 2/10 Points

If you want to reach DiscountPayPerHead support via telephone, the only available number is for sales staff who can answer questions about setting up new accounts. That number is (866) 857-1210. On that number, and on the live chat feature, you can talk with representatives in English, Korean, Filipino, Japanese, Vietnamese and Mandarin. However, the fact that you cannot reach out via phone for support. Instead, there is just an email address. That is a major problem for sportsbook agents and bettors, because there are times when you need an immediate response to an operational concern.

Payment Methods 1/5 Points

The DiscountPayPerHead website does not indicate what deposit and withdrawal methods are accepted, so that is a question that you would want to take up with the sales staff. Common methods include Bitcoin, a variety of wire transfer services, such as Western Union and MoneyGram, as well as other debit cards. Some platforms accept PayPal as well as cashier’s checks, and some even accept credit cards. Credit card transactions frequently involve high transaction fees, though, so your betting clients will likely be satisfied with transfer options.

Mobile Friendliness 7/15 Points

When you surf the DiscountPayPerHead website, whether from a laptop or a smartphone, the graphics and the text are easy to read. However, the control of the website is jerky, and when you hit the “back” arrow, sometimes it takes you two or three pages back instead of to the page where you were last. This can be frustrating if you are trying to do a comparison between websites, and it could also be frustrating if you are trying to review reports on the admin side.
