What I Need to Start My Own Online Sportsbook From New York

Starting your own online sportsbook from the state of Michigan is easy peasy but you'll need some help in doing so.

  • You will need at least five customers (active sports bettors).
  • You will need a top-of-the-line Pay Per Head to manage everything from live lines to 24-7 customer service to reporting.
  • Some marketing skills that should employ social media.
  • A lounge chair to go lay out on the lake since the Pay Per Head service pretty much allows you to operate on auto pilot.

Why Would Someone Want to Use Me Over a Draftkings or FanDuel?

  • Anonymity
  • Bookmakers typically extend credit
  • Limited danger in having your personal information sold or stolen
  • More avaliable betting options
  • Convenience
  • Payment options include crypto
  • 18 and up allowed

Why New York is Such a Lucrative Market for Bookies

  • Mobile sports betting have launched but the betting platforms are likely to have limitations due to the high taxes imposed on operators, which could impact odds competitiveness and bonus offerings.
  • Regulated books require gamblers to be 21 and up, which opens the door to the lucrative college age wagering market.
  • So many sports teams based out of the New York City area in addition to the Bills in Buffalo and Orange in Syracuse.
  • Betting on in-state schools prohibited on the state-regulated apps.
  • One can offer more enticing lines on New York teams, as noted above.
  • The ability to integrate online poker and a live dealer casino, either of which may be a more quality product than what the New Yor websites have to offer.
