When you’re evaluating pay per head sportsbook platforms, one thing that stands out as a differentiating factor is the quality and quantity of information that platforms are willing to provide to the general public. In the case of Pay Per Head Costa Rica, that information is almost nil, as the website talks about a variety of features, such as access to horse racing, casino games, but gives virtually no detail about what your betting clients can expect in terms of specifics.

You do get information about the reporting tools, which are above average, and the pricing structure, which seems a little high based on what you get as far as client offerings. On that basis, Pay Per Head Costa Rica gets a 59 out of 100.

PPH REVIEW DETAILS

Price 8/15 Points

The promotional price ($8 per head) seems more appropriate, as this comes across as a value platform after looking at all the features. Their regular pricing schedule breaks down as follows: $12 per head for fewer than 20 bettors; $11 per head for 25 to 50; $10 per head for books with at least 51 clients; and then it is negotiable once you hit 250 clients. That pricing seems much higher than what you should pay for what you get from Pay Per Head Costa Rica, and even the promotional price seems at the high end.

Promos 8/10 Points

Currently, Pay Per Head Costa Rica offers an NFL special, which includes an $8 per head flat fee, along with two weeks of free use of the site as a trial period. That is a significant discount from their normal pph pricing platform (which indicates that the company may be having a hard time getting people to sign up during a time when online betting is becoming increasingly popular), and the trial period allows you and your clients to figure out if the site is right for you. A four-week period would be more appropriate at this price point, but two weeks give you time to navigate the features.

Agent Admin 11/15 Points

One area in which the Pay Per Head Costa Rica does provide a wealth of information is in their reporting for pay per head sportsbook agents, which seems to be fairly thorough. In addition to the basics, such as daily and weekly action reporting, you get a fairly in-depth look at your player profiles, and the management of limits and profiles is user-friendly.

Sportsbook 8/15 Points

The Pay Per Head Costa Rica website says that the company offers access to the major sports leagues, but when something is that vague, you want to ask questions of the sales staff. Given the prices that this pph platform charges, you would want access to pro and college football and basketball, hockey, baseball, soccer, golf, tennis, UFC/MMA, rugby, cricket and other sports.

Casino 5/10 Points

The value of having casino gaming as part of your sportsbook is that you have to pay the pay per head platform a weekly fee for each betting client, and you need a new revenue stream to cover that fee. The Pay Per Head Costa Rica website indicates that it offers casino gaming but does not list the available games, or go into the setting of the odds. We recommend going with a platform that offers live dealers as well as a variety of card games, roulette, slots and other basic options.

Horses 2/5 Points

Pay Per Head Costa Rica markets on the website that they offer the “major horse track” races as options. That is the bare minimum, of course, but without a number, it is hard to evaluate their offerings. When you sign up with a pay per head sportsbook platform, make sure that the company offers at least 60 throughout the United States and Canada, as that is the standard for value books. Pay Per Head Costa Rica, of course, does not charge as a value platform, so I would expect them to be closer to 100 and also offer access to Japanese tracks.

Call Center 4/10 Points

You can reach Support for Pay Per Head Costa Rica at (855) 629-4010. There does not appear to be a live chat option, and if you want to communicate with the company by email, it may be possible when you enter your email address, but that could also just be the place where they collect addresses for their e-newsletter. The website does indicate that the number is available around the clock, which is important for your betting clients, who may run into difficulties at any point in time. The lack of a live chat option is somewhat disappointing, especially at this price point.

Payment Methods 2/5 Points

Pay Per Head Costa Rica does not specify which payment methods it accepts on its website. Commonly accepted payment methods for pph sportsbook platforms include Bitcoin, such wire transfer services as MoneyGram and Western Union, and various debit gift cards. In some cases, platforms also take PayPal and credit cards, although the higher transaction fees associated with credit cards make them less popular with betting clients.

Mobile Friendliness 11/15 Points

You definitely want a pph sportsbook platform that is mobile-friendly, so that both you and your sports betting clients can manage things from a tablet or smartphone. You don’t want to be stuck at a computer administering your lines, and your clients definitely don’t want to have to sit down at a desktop to place and check bets. Pay Per Head Costa Rica is easy to use, on both a computer or a mobile device, and both the agent and client interfaces are simple to navigate.
