THE LIFE OF A BOOKIE – LOS ANGELES

THE LIFE OF A BOOKIE – LOS ANGELES

When you have a city (actually a county) as large as Los Angeles, it is inevitable that for any bookie business that is enterprising, there are going to be endless possibilities.

By its very nature, Los Angeles is a place where sports stars want to be, and therefore the face of the sporting scene is going to be ever-changing, because deals are invariably made to bring these stars into the fold. A recent example was the trade that brought Anthony Davis to the Lakers, to join LeBron James.

So how does this all work out for your benefit as a bookie?

Well one thing to understand right away is that, for the most part, that which makes up the structure of the sports atmosphere in Los Angeles consists of ingredients that came from somewhere else.

Lakers and Clippers

The Lakers finally broke through in 1972, behind an NBA-record 33-game winning streak. Later editions of the team featured the combination of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, led mostly by Pat Riley. The rivalry with the Celtics continued, and the “Bird vs. Magic” showdowns brought the league to a whole new level.

There was yet another era of greatness when Phil Jackson led the team to five titles, as Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant became the superstar combo. In recent years the Lakers have fallen on harder times, but there are hopes of building another “super-team” with LeBron.

Baseball – It’s Dodgertown

Football – It’s Back in a BIg Way

Players – They’re Around

It may depend on where you live. People in L.A. County tend to be different in they live in the valley than if they live in West Hollywood or West Los Angeles or Beverly Hills. etc.

There is some “roller’ action in places like that, and remember that there is no shortage of networking opportunity. There may not be any city in America with more poker games than Los Angeles, and poker players often like to bet sports.

Sure, in a metropolis such as this, you’re going to find a lot of sharp players, but if they become customers, you have ways to decipher all this with the management tools you have as part of the Real Bookies PPH software.

At the same time, you have a lot of squares who think they’re smart, who like to gamble, go to Vegas and are always looking for an “out.” As long as they can be relied upon to pay their losses (get recommendations), your bookie business can really take off in LaLa Land.
