There are different tiers when it comes to pay per head sportsbook platforms – the value businesses, the mid-range businesses and the premium platforms, broken down by their weekly fee per betting client. It’s hard to evaluate IDSca on that basis, because it is not clear exactly what you have to pay to join. The fact that you have to pay more if you want to adjust your lines when the action gets out of balance is a bit worrisome.

The best feature of IDSca is their flexibility of methods for deposit and withdrawal, as they accept as many different methods as anyone else in the industry. With that said, it is not clear, without a call to their sales staff, what you can offer your clients, what it will cost you and what sort of contract regulations you will find. For now, IDSca gets a 61 out of 100.

PPH REVIEW DETAILS

Price 5/15 Points

You will have to call the IDSca sales staff to get a quote for the weekly pay per head rates. On the website, you can read about how IDSca offers its agent clients far more than what they can get from the sites that only charge $3 per betting client per week, but you never quite find out what they charge themselves. That sort of vagueness is somewhat frustrating given the transparency available on competitor websites. Given the information that this website offers about its services, I would not pay more than $5 as a weekly fee for this site, and even at the $5 level, there are competitors that offer much more in terms of transparency and available services.

Promos 4/10 Points

If you would like a free trial with IDSca, you get a week of membership without a deposit. This is less than the industry average, which seems to run at least two weeks and can run as long as six weeks, but you do get a few days to try out the system and see if it will work for you and your betting clients.

Agent Admin 8/15 Points

One disadvantage of working with IDSca is that, if you want to move the line on any of your events or prop bets, that ability comes at an additional cost. That is unusual in the pay per head sportsbook platform industry, as the ability to shift lines is generally included in the weekly fee. You do have full control of actions that your players undertake and can limit your players’ accounts as you see fit.

Sportsbook 13/15 Points

You can offer your clients access to a wide variety of sports – what IDSca refers to as an “extensive sports selection” – if you choose this price per head betting platform. IDSca provides lines from TIPX for European sports, Donbest for U.S. sports as well as Betradar for live betting. You can also offer prop bets for each event on which you take action, as well as bets for each quarter and at halftime. This increases your versatility as far as leagues available to your clients.

Casino 5/10 Points

If you’re going to sign up with a price per head sportsbook platform, you must offer casino gaming to help recoup your pay per head fees as well as to boost your overall profits. IDSca offers basic casino gaming, but it is not clear which games are offered or whether or not you can adjust the odds yourself or have to go with the odds that are set by the platform. This is typically a decision driven by the laws where the platform does business.

Horses 3/5 Points

Different sportsbooks have different clienteles in terms of their core interests, but if you want to have access to horse racing wagers, IDSca does offer that. It’s not clear how many tracks they cover with their wagering, but you should expect no fewer than 60-70 for your betting clients, with minimum coverage area as North America. Make sure that you inquire about this if you reach out to IDSca’s support staff.

Call Center 8/10 Points

IDSca’s call center is available 24/7 at (866) 225-5437. Their website offers a multilingual call center staff (although the languages are not specified). Live chat is also available 24/7 via a button that appears at the bottom right on the home page. It is important for you, as the agent, and your betting clients, to be able to reach support staff at any time should issues arise around a last-minute wager.

Payment Methods 5/5 Points

IDSca offers a wider variety than the majority of the pph sportsbook platforms out there. You can use the cryptocurrency options bitcoin and Ethereum, along with Bankwire, PayPal, e-Wallets, e-Check, InstaDebit, Western Union, Paysafecard, Entropay, Gropay, Sofort Uberweisung and Insta Banking by Citadel. You can also utilize credit cards. It’s hard to argue with that number of options.

Mobile Friendliness 10/15 Points

If you come across a platform that is not mobile optimized and does not offer the same functionality on a tablet or smartphone that it does on a laptop or desktop, don’t sign up with them. Your betting clients will leave for a competitor that lets them run everything from their phone. IDSca offers mobile optimization on both the agent and bettor size. The font variations and the elementary look of the columns on the website pages are irritating to the user, but it does appear that functionality is present for users in a mobile setting.
