We take your business
to the next level


About Us

Who we are

We at Live Per Head are the originators of providing services to land based bookmakers since 1998. Our company is not a Sportsbook, we were created to assist the Bookmakers ability to increase their business, as well as making it much easier for them to have a family life of their own, by taking most of the work that it is necessary for them to do each day, off their shoulders. Learn more about the benefits of having us writing your business.

Forty five years of experience of our founder in the sports betting industry says it all; we know all the needs of a bookmaker. We gladly invite prospective customers to fly to Costa Rica to inspect our facility and compare it to our so called competitors. If you can find a better facility or service of our kind anywhere in the world we will write your business FREE OF CHARGE. That’s a strong statement to make but, one we make in great confidence.

Costa Rica provided the perfect venue for Live Per Head to grow and flourish. There are no laws here either for, or against writing business for land based bookmakers. Two years ago the Costa Rican government set out to license all offshore gaming operations residing within the country. When they did this, Live Per Head purchased the largest license offered by the government, thereby making our business legal in the country. We have the largest, and boast the finest facility of its kind in the world.


Bookmaking solutions - price per head

Sportsbook - Horse Racing - Casino

Your customers are provided with your own and unique 800 number where their calls are taken quickly and efficiently by our experienced staff. Wagers are recorded into our database and balances are immediately adjusted at the end of each game. We use cutting edge satellite communication systems, so no more busy signals preventing customers from getting in at crunch time. Your customers will also have the option to place wagers online at your own customized website.

We can send you reports on a schedule which you set or you may log into our website to access reports in Real-Time.

All of this is available to you at a low price per player each week, and best of all, you only pay for those players that have actually placed a wager that particular week. No matter how many calls were placed, you only pay for those who actually wagered that week. You are only charged once for that player no matter how many times he/she calls or how many wagers he/she may have placed.

In addition, our internet connection, telephones, and equipment are all STATE OF THE ART, and of a much greater quality than that of anyone else in the industry and we back that claim by “putting our money where our mouths are”… “You find better, we write for nothing!!!”.

Just look at all the advantages that having Live Per Head can offer you over doing it yourself, or by letting our so called competition do it for you.
