    To work for a bookmaker......

    I would like to know if some of people who give their picks on sport bets would like or want to work for a bookmaker in the future or if it is only a passion for them.i would like to make this type of work and i would like to know if it is easy to become a bookmaker or working for them........What sort of study we should do to work for them?
    Thanks.

    But as you know there are many departments in a bookmaker, and if possible can you elaborate if you mean an online bookmaker? or shop front?

      may be he was talking about being an odd-setter

      well, I don't want to work for a bookmaker unless it pays really good, I prefer to be a bettor
      obviously you can't do both because there will be a conflict of interest, I will try to set odds that I can easily beat

        In future... I`m too young now to work at bookie as oddsetter but in next years I would take such job if I would have an offer. Of course if payment would be good and if I would have guaranteed long-term contract - at last it would be steady profit, normal work. I don`t have bookie-alergy

              The payments start from 500 Euro and go as high as 10.000 for an "odds compiler" or "odds creator"!
              :arrow: For 500 euros, working half-time, a east european person might cover a low interesting league.
              :arrow: For 1.000 euros, also working half time, a central european will cover a decent league.
              The other levels you might imagine starting with the info about!
              Also a person might cover several league if he is efficient and he will be able to keep tracks for all those leagues, in a long period of time!

              :idea: Bookmakers usually hire experienced personell, and they use to "head-hunt" different employees from their competition! There is a transfer market for those guys as well but it's not known and impossible to find just asking around in forums. Here the most important factor is the human relation and the solidity of that relation! To enter into this network it requires also experience and a prestigious name, if you want to enter the big league

              :!: Bookmakers have a policy about their workers to offer bonuses, prizes, after each season if the money won due to their work are good enough!

              8) An employee of a bookie will work only for the time of the season, he is free when the season is over and will get back to work when the season will start again.

              :wink: Mathematics are required, a good knowledge of the game as well, to speak the language used in that league is a critical thing, without it you can kiss the job good bye! The analysis must be profound, well argumented, mathematical aproved etc.

              How to get hired? :roll:
              A way would be to be a good tipster and then getting an offer from one bookie willing "to bet on you"!


              Other questions? Suggestions?

                  Yes, the salary is monthly and you got payed only during the season ... you do not produce nothing during the vacation so ...
