PayPerHead Mobile Review
Anyone looking to run online bookmaking software will need mobile capabilities. Not just for your clients to place bets, but for yourself when on the move running errands.
Simply put, mobile matters. If you can’t do all your business via phone or tablet, bookmaking will become increasingly difficult in the future.
So, color us pleased that although PayPerHead didn’t have an app for us to download, they did have a plan in mind when they created the mobile version of their bookie software.
But is it ultimately the platform you need in a competitive market? Let’s dive deeper.
Layout & Navigation
The instant tell that a webpage is built for desktop only is when you look at the edges of your screen. If you have to scroll left and right to finish a sentence, you can believe they made no adjustments for mobile.
We’re happy to say that wasn’t the case with the PayPerHead agent layout. When you log in, your windows fill the screen to create a more vertical version of the original horizontal site—the same blue menu windows with clear lettering and information.
The layout makes sure your thumb can quickly scroll through the page from top to bottom and see every category.
At the top are the essential basics:
- Weekly Balance by Player: Your current balance for each player for the week.
- HeadCount: How many players do you have in your online bookie.
- Dashboard for Last Week: Your overall player performance for the previous week.
- Account Balance: balance overall
Then goes into detail as you scroll further:
- Won/Loss by unit: Your overall product totals from sports, casino, and racebook sections.
- Won/Loss Chart breakdown: How you’re doing overall in the software.
- Week’s Top Losing Players: Keep track of your top-losing player in case you need to reach out.
- Events with Highest Volume: Understand which events (Super Bowl, etc.) bring the most handle to help plan and campaign for the future.
- Most Popular Events: Same as above but focused more on participation and not handle.
- Last Logins: Keep track of who is logging in and when..
When you need to get to the more detailed player management sections, click on the three lines to the top left, and you’ll have the menus from the desktop like Reports, Maintenance, Deposit, Layoff etc—again, seamlessly mirroring the desktop offering.
Layout is the big one for a mobile offering, and it looks like PayPerHead nailed the visuals and feel with ease. Navigating the site felt seamless, to a point where we can see many bookies using mobile as their primary means of tracking players and controlling their overall experience.
Although many bookies will choose to let their players “ride” and not increase or decrease limits, add or remove features, the ability to make on-the-fly changes to an account could save your bottom line.
It appears PayPerHead made sure all these features were in the mobile build as nothing was missing. When you click the Profile-plus icon, you’ll choose the name, location address, etc., and other options.
Once you’ve gotten the boring details entered, you can choose to change a whole wealth of options, including what products are available to them (Casino, Sports etc.) and their limits.
Certain features like Live Casino or Sports Live Plus will cost you a bit more than the norm per head, so make sure you know what they want before choosing these options.
After all the info is entered, keep track of them with the “Check Player Action” icon just to the left.
User Experience (PPH Agent)
You will not be happy if you don’t have intuitive options to pay your players and get paid yourself. But again, everything was available. Finding the deposit option was easily found in the top-left drop-down menu. It was almost easier to copy and paste our Ethereum from wallet to wallet when it came to crypto.
Paying players was on the main screen beside the other player management, and again, it was a similar experience to our desktop walkthrough.
The most difficult part of our experience was the high-level sports betting options. Both the Layoff and Line Movement options required new windows to use. As anyone knows, the fewer windows on a mobile device, the better. However, this was a similar issue with the desktop version. Overall, all the features to ensure you could place layoff bets or change lines were as feature-rich and straightforward as the desktop version.
User Experience (PPH Player)
Not all your players will be using mobile for their gaming experience, but we believe the number who do all their casino play and sports bets through their phone is growing.
PayPerHead made sure their casino games were mobile friendly, and their mobile sportsbook experience was as impressive as the competition. There may be an old casino game or two that doesn’t quite fit the new phone and tablet experience, but you’ll have few complaints for the most part.
Mobile is the future, and it looks PayPerHead recognizes this. Pph agents need to make deposits, payments, line moves, and player edits on the fly while on the way to their second job or when they touch down after a flight. Also, our phones are as good as any CPU in today’s modern world, so switching to mobile sportsbook software should be easy.
And they made it easy. We’re not sure they could’ve offered a better mobile experience for both agent and player. Though a tablet would provide the best experience overall, our test runs on iPhone and Android devices were just as smooth.
BossAction Mobile Review
The next evolution in bookmaking is mobile.
The industry started with old-school bookmaking with pen, paper, landlines, and a wad of cash. Today the bookie experience is entirely digitized on your favorite desktop screen. But in 5-10 years, we can’t help but see half of the online bookmakers and their players choosing to do business entirely online.
We’re just getting used to moving a screen with our fingers instead of a mousepad. Also, if you look at user experience, everyone from age five to 95 can work and understand a tablet.
That’s why it’s integral pay per head businesses like BossAction give you the mobile service you need before signing on. Here’s our review.
Layout & Navigation
A website has to nail layout and navigation to ensure frustration doesn’t lead to abandonment regarding mobile offerings. Good news, BossAction brought a hammer.
Logging into the software was easy through Google Chrome as it memorized the user and password from our desktop experience. Once we were in, we were impressed with the spacing. While the desktop version was a lot more horizontal, it looked like BossAction took your phone and tablet into account and made things more vertical.
Like the desktop version, the categories provide an excellent snapshot on how you’re performing overall. You’ll see your weekly balance by player, the number of players you have, how you performed the week before, and what’s your overall balance.
Scroll further, and you’ll get your win/loss numbers, top winners and losers, and what games were the most popular or had the most volume.
Everything they provide here tells you that you won’t miss a beat if you go mobile. Good start.
Grab enough clientele, and you’ll be managing them quite a bit in your day-to-day life. So working everything through your tablet or phone is a necessary evil.
Adding a new player via mobile proved to offer no issues. Entering a player’s info was tedious, but that was the case on desktop as well. The same wealth of player details to manage their player experience was immediately yours to change.
Everything was in a vertical menu—key options like turning Player Props on or off. You could also allow players to make deposits themselves, offer credits for free play, phone and mobile limits, etc. And if you want to change these settings after you add a new player, it’s also a simple process.
User Experience (BossAction Agent)
Now that you’ve figured out how to set your players up, it’s time to figure out the best way you can benefit from this software.
When we looked to Deposit with BossAction, the process was as easy as we’d hoped. We went with the crypto method, and to get started clicked “Deposit” and chose from “Pay Me,” “Pay My Players,” and “Track Payments.” We used crypto for all these options as the credit card method cost us 7% per transaction. Considering we’ve seen this at other sportsbooks we’ve tried in the past, we don’t see things getting any easier for credit card transactions in the future. We suggest going with crypto.
We also found cool user features that took our experiences to the next level, like selecting page layout presets or manually deciding what appears on your screen. Players will always prefer certain details when they open their bookie software; this was a nice touch.
Last but not least was the Layoff option. For those new to the sports-betting-software game, a layoff bet is when the wager you’re offering is offside, and to balance action, you place a bet yourself with a third party. It’s a long-time practice by any bookie with common sense. However, even though we had to move to a separate window to pull this off, laying off bets was a simple process. Mostly because BossAction made sure the user experience was the same as any player.
User Experience (BossAction Player)
And what about that user experience on mobile? Smooth. Placing bets is a scroll and touch process. Players you sign up will have no issues with placing bets, parlays, or even live betting. The same type of wagers are available on the mobile experience.
The casino offerings were just as good. Every casino game was available, from blackjack to slots to keno, and they optimized every game for mobile devices. Some games even informed us to rotate our device horizontally to ensure the game is being played and experienced correctly.
And last but not least, horse racing. Shockingly, we had every race to bet on with every combination. This feature will be huge as horse racing is a 24/7 experience for hardcore players. Being able to offer all your features via mobile will be essential for seasonal and hardcore race lovers on the go.
Wow. BossAction understood the mission of creating a bookie software that could last to the future. They made sure they packed every feature into their mobile version and did it in the most intuitive way possible. Suppose you’re more into using your phone or tablet than your desktop CPU? You can’t go wrong with BossAction is offering bookmaker software.
AcePerHead Mobile Review
When you become a pay per head bookie, you’ll quickly notice the percentage of your players using mobile devices to bet on your sportsbook software is well over 50%. Mobile is not just the future; it’s the present. And to truly help your bookie business reach its potential. You need to find a pay per head site that makes mobile gaming a seamless and even improved experience for you and your players.
If you’re a bookie looking for a proper mobile pay per head experience, check out our reviews across as many services as possible. This time, it’s Ace Per Head.
Overall Layout & Navigation
We said in our “Overall review” that Ace Per Head had a pretty generic design; the mobile layout was the same. Ace pretty much moved its entire desktop site and adjusted it for mobile.
Navigating was a simple process. There were generic drop-down menus to maneuver through the agent or player site. The site speed didn’t suffer on mobile, and everything we clicked on was quick and responsive.
The color scheme was very simple. Blue and white pretty much covered every section and menu. But, when we wanted to find a game or report, the layout guided us well enough to where we naturally found what we needed.
Besides its straightforward design, our issue with the site was the layout was too close to the edge of the screen. This sometimes made it tough to see the first letter of a word or sentence.
But overall, it did the job.
Logging into the Agent experience again, you’re immediately on a home screen that has your active player with a breakdown of whether they’re up or down over the last seven days. From there, on the top right of the screen, there’s a huge “Menu” button that gives you a long list of reports and sections you can check out.
The good part of this is that no report was spared from the mobile version. The bad part is it’s a long list of reports to scroll through. We wish there was a more simplified way to show all this information. Also, we couldn’t find the section that allowed us to “layoff” our bets. An integral feature.
When we clicked on standard sections like “Weekly Balances” or Player Management” it was a pretty good, well-spaced experience. However, when we chose “Move Lines” the section was a red, white, and blue mess of numbers and windows. We understand changing or moving lines is not a simple process, and therefore it will always be a busy menu when entering these kinds of sections. But we’re sure there was a better way to lay this out on mobile devices. It was too busy.
Also, you can tell certain sections were properly scaled for mobile but not redesigned for mobile. The “Player Chat” section zoomed in too close when we wanted to type something to a player, and we had trouble seeing the “Send” or “Delete Chat” sections when we experimented with sending a message. And sometimes, the letters and phrases came in a little too small for our tastes.
Overall, functional (again) is the best way to describe or bookie experience.
Logging in to the player experience, you’re greeted with a generic banner advertising their horse racing product. Then you’re immediately asked to “Place A Bet”. The drop-down offered the type of bet we wanted – Straight, Bet it all, Parlay, Teaser, etc. to name a few. Once you decide, you’re brought to a menu of sports that you can check off. Again, it’s very plain and generic process.
We didn’t see any missing sports, although it was difficult to know what was available. The mobile menus were mostly split up into two parts: “Most Popular Right Now” and “Games Up Next.” But when we found what we wanted, the process of actually placing the wager was simple. Our horse racing experience was similar to the sports one. Straightforward menus that allow you to check off your selections and then confirm.
The mobile casino was also practical and functional. Blackjack and other games seemed well optimized to ensure our experience was a solid one. However, we could not go to widescreen on most of the games; things had to stay exclusively vertical. In our view, in this day and age, that’s pretty unacceptable.
Players do at least have access to their “Wager History” to see everything they did throughout the week, as well as an inbox to keep messages.
Overall, we doubt your new players are going to see anything in their mobile sportsbook and casino that’ll make them feel like they’re at a top-notch sportsbook. These sections need a bit of a refresh.
We started off completely ready to accept the Ace Per Head mobile experience. But came away disappointed. It works, and it fits your screen. Those are the two main compliments we can give their setup. But it’s seriously lacking in intuitive design and color. If you have loyal players and you’ve chosen Ace Per Head as your pay per head software, you’ll be fine. But if you want to attract the new gamblers of today who are seeing examples of top-notch online competition more than ever before, they’ll probably be soured by the generic look and feel.
PerHead Mobile Review
You’re quickly going to recognize in the online bookie business that at least 50 percent of your business comes from mobile players. The desktop has become a tool for work, but our mobile devices are for fun and entertainment, and that’s where sports and casino gaming are thriving.
Therefore, if you’re going to run a business with pay per head software, it needs to be fully functional with mobile devices.
So allow us to do the grunt work and review another pay per head site’s mobile functionality. This time, it’s PerHead.
Overall Layout & Navigation
Overall, it appears PerHead made an effort to ensure their software fits mobile devices. Menus were simplified and filled the screen, and we found navigating an easy process. Again, like PerHead’s desktop offering, you have the option to use the Dynamic System and the Classic System, and we’ll say right off the bat, if you want a good layout and navigation experience, you might as well stick with the new dynamic system. The color scheme was a simple red, grey and black color scheme, and you still have the ability to make any changes you see fit.
The mobile app has a mini ticker tab to show incoming bets, Avatars to identify players, Hotlinks, a message center for sending direct messages to your players, and the ability to manage any players and subjects in one report.
Obviously, if you’re a pay-per-head-bookie and want to make some serious coin, your player management and reporting need to be on point. And overall, it was.
When we logged in, everything promised in the desktop version was available in the mobile version.
For player management, you can manage maximum and minimum wagers, whether it’s the sport, wager type, and game type. You could even delete wagers if you want. That kind of control is always needed for managing players.
As reporting, we also got everything we needed:
- Daily and weekly player account balances.
- Player history.
- Open bets.
- Win/Loss by wager type per player.
- Player balance and adjustments (bonus, free play)
- Overall Hold Percentage.
- Weekly Gross Earnings.
Reporting through mobile can be a little jarring as it’s a lot of information to squeeze into a tight window. But the information you need is all there. Most important, is the overall hold percentage. A definite must to ensure you can see
In order for your players to enjoy their gambling experience, placing bets and even playing in the online casino should be intuitive and simple.
And so far, so good when we walked through the agent experience. Every major sport was at our fingerprints – with a sliding menu up top with all the major leagues and details of matchups and lines below. When you choose a matchup, the choices of Spread, Total, and Moneyline above. Below that is the matchup, and when you click “More,” you’ll have more versatile bets on every matchup.
Placing bets and the amounts were easy to enter, and cool features like live betting (AKA in-play betting) were also available. Like you’re betting on Amazon, you can either add numerous bets to a “Cart” or get right to it and place a quick bet.
As for the casino, everything was placed in a nice three-by-four window where all the types of casino games are at your disposal: Blackjack, Video Poker, Table Games, Slots, and Bingo & Keno. It was easy to select the game we wanted to play, although the games looked a little dated in action.
But overall, solid player experience. We could see everything we needed, including our balance and bet slip, on one screen.
Considering how well PerHead.com did in other categories, we really expected them to knock our socks off in their mobile presentation. However, what we got was something a little more … lukewarm. Although we can recommend their mobile pay per head software, we don’t see it completely on par with PayPerHead or BossAction. But, outside of those two, we think PerHead provided a good clean interface with lots of reports for agents on the go.
PricePerPlayer Mobile Review
The world is shifting to mobile. Desktops are becoming something for gamers and those who want to mine crypto, while phones are the everyday entertainment device. This is especially true for betting.
In the betting world, mobile matters. Pretty soon, mobile could be used for everything. The ability to place bets on the NFL or NBA on the go is slowly becoming as American as cheeseburgers and Tom Cruise.
Therefore, any bookie looking to create a long-term business must adopt mobile play as a staple. So, how does one choose the right pay-per-head site to host their players via mobile?
We’ve been reviewing these sites for perks and flaws, this time, it’s PricePerPlayer.
Overall Layout & Navigation
We’re starting to get the feeling a lot of these pay-per-head sites use the same software developers. Outside of PayPerHead.com, BossAction, and maybe PerHead, we’ve seen a lot of similar-looking layouts.
PricePerPlayer had a standard blue layout for agent reporting, which has become a bit stale as it seems to be the same looking design for most sites. However, we were quite impressed with the looks they offered to players.
PricePerPlayer offers four different sites to offer to your players. Each one looked slightly different and offered a slightly different layout from the other.
While none reinvented the wheel, it was nice to see the option to get something different.
As we said above, this was pretty standard. However, it did the job. Overall, they offered the following menus on our mobile device:
- Weekly Balances
- Agent History
- Agent Position
- Player Management
- Customer Transactions
- Instant Action
- Agent Distribution
- Pending Wagers
These menus should be expected by any agent trying to run a proper bookie business. When we checked out our Weekly Balances, everything worked, but everything was a little bunched in on our phone. There were some hot links to see reports from “Two Weeks Ago,” “Last Week,” and “This Week,” but then below that, things got a little messy.
Instead of giving you a view of all transactions from Monday to Friday, we had to scroll left and right to see what we did each day. We had the same issue with the “Player Management” menus. We could barely see our limits etc. when it came to the casino categories, which is essential.
However, things looked a lot better when we saw the “Pending Wagers” menu. The pending bets were nicely spaced so we could see every detail, complete with the ticket number, date and time, and the actual event. This ensures you’ll be able to find any wager in question should your players reach out.
As we said earlier, we were impressed by offering four separate site designs and URLs to give your players.
They were as follows:
SBplays claims to have an Asian-style website. We’re not sure what that means, but overall it was the most generic site out of the four. However, bets were simple via mobile with standard blue and red font to navigate the site.
Purewage was great for quick betting, which we think is good if you have newer bettors. It had menus that allowed as few clicks as possible to place your bet.
Betfastaction looked the best in design but felt the most annoying to place wagers. It had those little squares beside bets that we had to check off to place our bets. We had some instances where our fat thumbs chose the wrong wager.
Wagerhub888 is our personal favorite. Choosing the odds was simple, and things were well laid out overall. They did their best to keep wagers on every sport or game condensed, so you don’t have to move around the menus too often.
We’re a bit surprised by PricePerPlayer’s presentation. Our expectations were low, but they surprised us with the multiple layout offerings for your players. That goes a long way in delivering an intuitive mobile experience. However, we wish the same options were available for agents, as they lose a couple of brownie points for using the same ol’ generic reporting system.
PayPerHeadAgents Mobile Review
According to a 2022 tech report, 60% of website traffic comes from mobile devices. Let that sink in.
We’re sure you use a desktop quite a bit to upload, update, and advertise your product if you run any kind of business. But most of your clientele are using their phones to access your services.
So just imagine what’s happening with online sportsbooks and casinos. To ensure bookie business is maximized in 2022 and beyond, you need to choose a well-optimized pay-per-head website for mobile devices.
To ensure you choose correctly, we’ve reviewed the mobile version of the pa-per-head software. This time its PayPerHeadAgents.com.
Overall Layout & Navigation
Overall layout? Not bad. PayPerHeadAgents uses a red font which is a nice change when looking at all the blue menus we’ve seen on most sites. Things were written clearly, and a dropdown menu was available to navigate the site. The load times were pretty good. We didn’t notice any slowdown, and placing our bets didn’t run us into costly delays.
Making sports bets was solid as well; the look of the main screen was solid, and the menu colors kept sports properly separated.
Mobile experiences aren’t just for players. A good portion of your bookies will also be doing most of your work on mobile devices. With that being the case, you need to be able to see what your players are up to on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis. Check out your bottom line overall and where most of your best are coming from.
PayPerHeadAgents does this by providing the standard blue menus with “Player Activity” and “Pending Bets” to track everything your players are up to. With these reports, you can keep track of every player, bet, and dollar with advanced reporting and business insights. The only downfall is you can tell these menus are merely adjusted to fit your phone or tablet screen and are not necessarily optimized for mobile devices.
The last big element is the “Build Your Brand” part of the software or “custom white-label website.” Custom white-label websites allow you to build your brand and online presence. At no additional cost, you can have your pay-per-head site and register your domain name to offer your players secure and encrypted access to “YourSportsbook” .com.
With the ability to create your own mobile, pay-per-head site at no extra cost, that already comes as a big improvement to the player experience. Along with solid menus and game offerings, there’s a live betting element that’s huge in today’s betting. The ability to offer your players in-game bets is a feature that continues to grow and is becoming more and more readily available. The site claims it’s fully integrated, and from what we saw, it is.
The odds of the sportsbook were consistently up to date, and it appears that all the major bets and major sports were available. The site also claims that PayPerHeadAgents employs a team of professional, experienced linesmen to ensure the odds are up to date. We doubt all that. These odds are found and used the same way as every other online sportsbook.
As for the casino, all 73 casino games were available on our mobile device. However, we did notice most of the games looked 5-10 years behind in terms of design and layout. While these games were optimized to fit your screen, you can tell it wasn’t 100% made for your phone or tablet.
As for the mobile racebook? It’s similar to the mobile sportsbook in that it’s functional, with plenty of menus and all the bets to give your player a solid experience.
It’s nothing to write home about, but PayPerHeadAgents.com gives a solid presentation overall to give you and your players a good, but not great, experience. The menus are well laid out, and the casino games all work via mobile. It’s obvious that PayPerHeadAgents understands how much mobile play matters today.
That said, we would’ve liked to see more effort made to ensure things are optimized for a player’s mobile experience.
RealBookies Mobile Review
We continue our mobile reviews, this time with RealBookies.com. Mobile online sportsbook and casino play is taking over desktops across the globe. More and more players are becoming acclimated with betting on the games they love through their phones instead of being stationary in front of a MAC or PC.
So, to maximize your bookie business, the pay per head software you choose has to be optimized for mobile devices, or you’re trying to ice skate uphill.
Read below to see what we think of RealBookies mobile presentation.
Overall Layout & Navigation
Getting a solid idea of Realbookies pay per head software’s overall layout was a little tricky because they really push the “white label” service.
White label service is essentially the ability to have Realbookies build you a customized site to your specifications. You can choose the colors, the layout, the reporting, and your choice of products. That’s right, you can decide whether you want to offer casino, sportsbook, or racebook services, or all three!
The perk of doing this will is they offer a couple of extra perks that will help your business:
- Search Engine Optimization: Your URL will be optimized for search engine visibility. This includes meta tags for important keywords as well as content headings and other SEO tags.
- Advanced Security: One of the most important aspects of online sports betting is having every transaction conducted in a safe and secure manner. Realbookies claims to offer firewals and other measures to ensure a cyber-attack is nearly impossible.
Quality Sound and Graphics: High level of customization including cutting edge technology when it comes proper function across all browsers.
Overall, what the site lacks in specific software layouts and offerings, they make up for with customization.
Realbookies offers both Digital Game Solutions and Advisor Software Inc. sports betting software – the only one currently offering both.
The thing is, while it’s great to have both, ASI is considered the “old standard” of sports betting, pay per head software.
Ultimately, DGS is where it’s at and is the way you want to go when offering an mobile experience to your players.
It has most of the standard features as the competition:
- Easily accessible player summaries.
- DGS instant action
- Agent positions
- Weekly information on your players betting habits, like how much they are betting, when, and in which leagues.
Obviously, all these features are useful. And when we dove in, everything worked as it should on our mobile device. But we hoped to find something that would distinguish RealBookies from the competition and what we got is the same software that works with many other pay per head sites.
DGS is available at many other pay per head sites you’ve tried out. The one difference is what color you use for the fonts. We wish we had seen something a bit more inspired.
However, overall the sportsbook and casino experience from an Agent perspective was solid. Ultimately, everything worked as it should.
With 15 years in the game we hoped to see something new and inspired. But, it was more of the same. The layout was solid, with the ability to take 100s of sports wagers on everything from major sports to darts. Wagers were available 24/7, settled quickly, and weren’t hard to navigate on our mobile device.
They also offered live betting, which is a must for new players. The casino software was solid but generic as well. The offerings were six-deck blackjack, baccarat, deuces wild, slots, craps, roulette etc.
Everything was available on mobile devices. However, we will say that the casino games looked a generation or two older than what we see from some PPH competition like PayPerHead.com or Boss Action.
That said, navigating these menus was solid, and the ability to create a layout how you see fit (for the right price) is a definite plus.
The site advertising RealBookies.com has a fairly generic look and feel. We now know that’s because that’s exactly what you’re getting on your mobile device when you dive into this pay per head sportsbook and casino software. While the whitelisting part of their service is big, this does come at an extra price. We would recommend other pay-per-head sites that we’ve reviewed on here that offer an excellent template for mobile players along with a whitelisted option.
