Bookmaking in Georgia as Illegal as.. Handcuffing Someone in Clown Suit During Sex

Is bookmaking illegal in the state of Georgia?  Technically, the answer to this question would be “yes”.  But Georgia also has some of the most obscure laws on the books, making just about everyone in the state a lawbreaker at one point or another.

As far as bookmaking goes, running a wire room out of one’ home or office, maintaining bet slips and having degenerate gamblers appear at your door all hours of the night presence a nuisance and danger to those living or working in the immediate area.  As such, law enforcement is obligated to deter such activities. 

But the reality is that bookies will continue to hone their craft no matter what.  It is, after all, the second oldest profession.  A Pay Per Head business helps eliminate all of the aforementioned attractants with the exception of the actually bookie him or her self.

The bookie becomes more of a “super affiliate” in that he or she simply sits back and lets the profit role in without the hassles of any overhead.  In fact the bookie – if we can call him or her that at this point – doesn’t even take bets. That’s all left up to the Pay Per Head, which simply charges a low flat weekly fee for each referral or client under your umbrella.  In the case of PricePerPlayer, we are talking $5 and up per customer.

As far as the law goes, bookies are no more lawbreakers than, say, someone who handcuffs an individual dressed in a clown suit during sex.  Such behavior could be interpreted as “sadomasochistic abuse” under Georgia state law. 

While we are at it, keeping a donkey in your bathtub could result in an arrest as might using profanity in front of a dead body at a funeral home, not that you would do any of these things.

Georgia also makes it illegal to post a sign in any language other than English. 

We would be remiss in pointing out that more organized criminal behavior such as money laundering, racketeering and enterprise corruption provides easy traps for both the novice and experienced bookmaker.  Some of the largest most respected companies in the world just happen to be bookmakers and/or casinos (William Hill, MGM, Wynn).  None engage in the unlawful activities we just described and neither should you.
