One thing that sets the RDGCorp paradigm apart from its competition is the two-tiered pricing system. For basic membership, sportsbook agents would pay $7 per betting client per week; for premium membership, the per head cost is $10 weekly. It would be helpful if the company provided more information about the benefits that come at the two different pricing tiers. However, that information is only available via a call to the sales staff.

Another limit with RDGCorp is that you can only make deposits and withdrawals via Bitcoin. This is part of the up-and-coming cryptocurrency market, but you may have clients that want more flexibility. The company has been around since 1996 in the online sports betting industry, though, so there is that track record to consider. Overall, RDGCorp gets a 66 out of 100.

PPH REVIEW DETAILS

Price 10/15 Points

You can choose the basic level at $7 per head per week, or the premium level at $10. You will have to reach out to the sales staff to find out the difference between the two tiers, because even though each tier has its own page, there is no information about what the different levels offer. Throughout the pph sportsbook platform industry, such factors as whether you get a custom website “skin” or just a variant of the general website play a role, along with the number of different casino games and sports leagues you have access to.

Promos 8/10 Points

RDGCorp compensates for the lack of information on their website about the terms and conditions with a four-week no-deposit free trial of the sportsbook. Among the pph platforms that offer a free trial, you will find anything between one and six weeks, but anything above four weeks is fairly rare. You will have a month to try the platform out and decide whether to keep your account, adjust from free to premium (or from premium to free) before having to put down a deposit.

Agent Admin 10/15 Points

When you sign up with a price per head sportsbook platform, you are paying someone else to handle the admin work so that you can scan the numbers and make decisions. You should expect daily and weekly activity reports as well as full control over limiting your player accounts, culling inactive accounts and following your different wager offerings in real-time to keep track of potential imbalances. RDGCorp seemingly provides the ‘mandatory’ reporting tools required, but nothing beyond the ordinary.

Sportsbook 10/15 Points

It is not clear exactly which sports that you can offer your betting clients through RDGCorp – as well as which sports are available at the two pricing tiers. At the basic level, expect pro and college basketball and football, along with baseball, hockey and soccer – as a minimum. However, there are other platforms at the $7 price point that RDGCorp charges basic members that also offer UFC/MMA, rugby, cricket, tennis and golf.

Casino 5/10 Points

You will definitely want to offer casino gaming options to your sports betting clients if you sign up with a pph platform, to help cover your weekly fees and to help increase your overall revenues. RDGCorp offers casino software, and you will want to ask the sales staff what is available at the basic and premium levels for you to offer. Also, ask if RDGCorp’s legal jurisdiction will allow you to change your casino odds.

Horses 3/5 Points

RDGCorp does offer a racebook, but you will want to contact their sales staff to find out how extensive it is. Don’t settle for a racebook that has fewer than 60 tracks available, across North America. Given the $7 – $10 price point here, though, you should expect that basic level at a minimum. If you have a lot of sports betting clients who like to take deep dives in horse racing, then you might want to choose a platform that offers more tracks.

Call Center 7/10 Points

If you or your betting clients need to reach support staff with RDGCorp, they can call (877) 386-0180. There is also a live chat available with support, and both options are available 24/7. This is fairly standard in the industry except in the lowest levels of the value tier of pph sportsbook platforms. You will want to choose a platform that gives you constant access to support, both for yourself and your bettors, in case of issues that arise in the middle of matches, or right before a wager locks.

Payment Methods 2/5 Points

If you want to work with RDGCorp, you have to be prepared to work with Bitcoin, as that is their only payment option. Bitcoin (as well as other cryptocurrencies) are growing in acceptance worldwide. Indeed, Russell Okung, of the Carolina Panthers, is having half of his NFL salary converted to Bitcoin after the team deposits it into his account. Even so, you may find that some of your betting clients would like to keep their money in dollars, or whatever other currency they use.

Mobile Friendliness 11/15 Points

RDGCorp has an interface that is easy to read and use, from both the sportsbook owner and the betting client side, and whether on a desktop/laptop environment or on a mobile device. That is a must when it comes to just about any online business right now, and this case you want a platform that you or your bettors could manage from a stool at a sports bar. RDGCorp has that, and the graphics and text are easy to read.
