Why Pay Per Head

More Benefits With Evolution Direct Play

If you run a sportsbook now or you’re looking to get in on the action, then you’ve probably heard about Pay Per Head services (like the one here at EvoDP). The question is, what is a pay per head (PPH) software and what does it do?

Put simply, an online pay per head sportsbook software is focused on making sure that your business keeps running smoothly by using cutting edge software to manage your clients and  giving you a place to take action from clients.


The problem is that while many racebooks and sportsbooks continue to use older, outdated methods of taking action and managing their business, those methods (paper, Excel, and other non-PPH systems) have plenty of issues that make it hard to grow your business or even just manage your current client base effectively. 

A pay per head bookie software will give you a full-service solution to the problem of managing a large number of clients. This covers everything from managing how much your client owes you to taking action from your clients themselves. You can even use the software to let your clients pay you online instead of in person, saving you a huge amount of time when you need to collect.

What You Should Be Looking For In Pay Per Head Software

Many people look at pay per head software as an easy way out when it comes to managing their business, but the problem is that you can’t just buy any piece of pay per head sportsbook software and expect it to work right out of the box. You need to find the right software package for you.

  • Ideally, your pay per head software should:

    • Give you a quick overview of your business
    • Track all of your clients and their bets
    • Let you take action from your clients on a variety of sports
    • Have built-in odds that you can customize (or not) based on your book
    • Give you 24/7 access to your book from any internet-connected device
    • Give you and your clients access to any sports league or race track that you currently take action on
    • Allow seamless integration of information across your sportsbook, casino, and racebook (if necessary)
    • Give you 24/7 support and keep your data secure behind heavy encryption

You might have realized this already, but the above items are all things that EvoDP already offers to clients of our software. Additionally, we’ve built our software around the idea that you shouldn’t need to buy a pay per head software package and spend days learning how to use it properly. Our setup process extremely fast and easy, and if you do have any questions then you can contact our support team, who are available both over the phone and via email 24/7/365.

What are some of the reasons to use EvoDP (and PPH software in general)?

There are plenty of reasons that specialized pay per head bookie software should be used, but each bookie will have their own reasons why price per head software is right for them.

If you’re trying to grow your business

Bookmakers who are trying to grow their business need to be using a pay per head software if they aren’t today. Not only is having your system on the internet a great way of keeping track of your current clients, but it’s also a great way to attract new clients. Looking to take some action from a person that you met while out of town? An online pay per head sportsbook can do that easily, while a local bookmaker can’t possibly handle more than a few clients like this.

If you want a website to take action on

One of the key aspects of the client relationship that is streamlined with a pay per head bookie software is taking action. When you use our software, you can take immediate action from your clients based on odds that you set and you can set limits on the amount that a client can bet on a particular sport, wager, or type of bet.

If you want bank level security protecting your essential information

The interesting thing about most offline bookie operations is that, while many people think that they are secure, in reality they are actually less secure than using an online service. This is because hard copies can be easily lost or stolen and even copies of your information on a computer can be easily taken and read. Our pay per head software puts all of your data behind 128-bit encryption that is extremely difficult to break into, and that data is even further protected behind cutting edge security features that we integrate into our software package itself.
