It’s one of the most lucrative states in which to become a bookie: Alabama, My Sweet Home Alabama.
The entire state of Alabama just happens to be home to the single most rabid College Football fan base in the nation, many of whom love to (or would likely if enticed) place bets on either their Crimson Tide or Tigers.
“There is certainly no denying the fact that finding and even becoming a bookie is one of the most interesting activities and it enables the person in getting more knowledge and wisdom with the help of some amazing books,” Ace Sportsbook suggests as part of a published content piece. “There is a famous quote that books are the best friends of human and what could be better than associating you with that book-friend business.”
Today bookies want to preserve their anonymity, security, comfort and convenience; this is with no trouble reached via online. People will also enjoy the variety of sporting and gaming events which a bookie can present to their customers in various forms online. Ahhhh…and did we mention the limited workload and nearly nonexistent overhead?
That’s because companies the likes of AcePerHead.com handle every aspect of your business accept for the fun part (depending on how you look at it, we suppose), the collection of money from players. Of course, we’d be remiss in pointing out that there will be times you’re going to have to pay those same players.
If you’re offering LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING and an online casino, the chances of you owing players becomes more reduced as AcePerHead.com and other PPH firms offer said options.
Below are some important highlights to consider when becoming a bookie:
* Be numerate and able to make calculations quickly
*Be well organized and have good administration skills
*Have basic keyboard and computer skills
*Be trustworthy and honest
*Have some knowledge of sporting events.
*Have good communication, negotiation and customer service skills
*Be able to manage a team of staff
*Be able to understand betting regulations
*Be security conscious
The penalties for Simple and Aggravated gambling in the state of Alabama are MISDEMEANOR.
Simple vs. Aggravated: The distinction between "simple" and "aggravated" gambling is also one that varies from state to state. That terminology may not be used in a state's criminal law at all. It may be phrased as mere "gambling" versus "professional gambling." It may come into play only based on second or third violations of a given criminal prohibition. The approach used in compiling the chart is generally based on the presence of professional gambling, which involves those who make money on the contest or game other than as, and on an equal footing with, a mere player.
