PayPerHead Agents See Revenue Boost on the NBA and NHL Playoffs

Last year, betting action during the Playoff season totaled over $6.8 billion worldwide.

NEW YORK - May 26, 2021 - (

For PayPerHead (PPH) bookie agents, the two most important events on the sports yearly calendar come about in the springtime (they usually start in the middle of May). The NBA Playoffs and NHL Playoffs are in full swing right now. Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and National Hockey League sports betting generate $50 million to $80 million per year. Last August, when the NHL Playoffs and NBA Playoffs in Orlando happened at the same time, U.S. sports bettors wagered a record $2.1 billion.

The August 2020 total was a whopping 90.2% increase, when compared to August 2019. The recorded U.S. sports betting handle broke the Summer 2020 record when American sports handicappers bet more than $3 billion for the first time.

The National Basketball Association finished their 2019-2020 NBA Season at Disney World in Orlando. The National Hockey League finished their season in two Canadian cities, Edmonton and Toronto. Although both leagues had exciting finishes, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Dallas Stars to win the Stanley Cup, and the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Miami Heat to win the NBA Finals, neither league produced the same television ratings as they did in the past. agents see the most revenue from the sportsbook, live in-game betting platform, and products like the digital casino and live dealer. 

According to's Marketing Manager, Peter L. North, that could be because of new viewing platforms. "We offer video streams via our UltraLive platform," North said. With UltraLive, agents can also offer players game trackers.

Johnson said that sports bettors could wager on how many points a player like Kevin Durant or James Harden scores in a game during the NBA Playoffs.

North added that designs digital platforms to boost the action. "We provide two live dealer platforms for agent flexibility, and agents and players can use multiple options to deposit into their accounts using our new state-of-the-art version 2.0 BetSlip."
