Free Sports Betting Business Model

Free Sports Betting Business Model – I’ve been using Betfair for years now, but recently I’ve been wondering how much this company earns? The following question prompted me to write this article. I won’t get a copy of their account from the company’s house, the content will be all guesses based on what I’ve picked up from using the web over the years.

What enabled me to ponder this question was transparency on the Betfair website. If you take into account traditional bookies like WilliamHill, Ladbrokes or Betfred, what we don’t know about a particular sporting event is what has been wagered in bulk and on what particular outcome these bets are placed.

Join the regular Friday afternoon race meeting at say Ascot. Horses 2,30 and 5 race; All punters enter one of the traditional betting sites and help various horses. The result is a second favorite win, you are not clear whether the person is helping the outsider or the favourite, what the stakes are, and what dividends the bookie gets. mbah semar

Now taking into account similar races to betting site. The wholesale amount exchanged for the competition is posted at the top of the page, this is a lot of about £200,000 for a standard horse race. Now you are clear that Betfair is charging a commission on all winnings, and for each bet exchanged there is a winner, so they charge 5% regardless of the outcome – roughly £10,000 in this case.

So for now not much math ‘back of fag package’. Around 40 races a day earns £10,000 each which is £400,000 a day 7 days a week, that’s £2.8m a week. Throw in more gatherings and reach the 3 million mark, 5% of which is £150,000. pengeluaran togel

Now taking into account the Premier League football season. At least 12 games in a week bring in £200,000 and a million pounds in exchanged bets, take the average and earn 5% commission and that’s another £350,000. On top of all of this there are lower leagues and foreign games that need to generate another £100,000 in commissions for us to earn 1/2 million pounds each week in revenue.

Remember that you can (and people do) bet on anything, golf, cricket, tennis, boxing, champions league football, international football, not to mention games. I’ve come to the conclusion that they need to be unique in weekly earnings in the millions, and if it’s just £3 million per week, that’s over 150 million per year.

I’ll admit it’s unclear if my activities were too wrong here, and whether Betfair had too much annual earnings of £1m or £1bn. I don’t really have a plan for how much their legal costs, IT costs, etc. What I see is that unlike traditional bookmakers, the outcome of individual sports events is not dominant to their earnings.

For this object, their main objective is to recruit as many customers as possible, which begs the question; With so many online bookies out there offering free introductory bets up to and over £100, then why is Betfair only offering £30. That’s the topic of my next post.
