If you’re reading this, I assume you’re already aware of the many perks that come with being a bookmaker employee. But maybe you’re not; maybe you’re still not really sure what working for a sportsbook is like. Fear not: I’m gonna tell you all about it.
The Many Perks Of Working At A Bookmaker
If you’ve ever shopped at Target, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when I say that there’s no other sporting goods store like it. You’ll find everything you need in one place, and the shopping experience is brilliant. Well, at least it used to be before they stopped allowing people to bargain-hunt. But that’s another story. Back to the topic at hand: being a bookmaker employee comes with many perks.
First off, let’s discuss the obvious. You get to play around with numbers all day, which is pretty awesome when you think about it. If you’re not really good at math, you can always turn to your bookmaker for help, or better yet, ask other employees to give you a hand. The ability to analyze numbers and apply critical thinking to sports betting is a skill that will serve you well in life, whether you decide to pursue a career in gambling or not. The money you make, especially if you’re winning, is also pretty cool to think about. There’s no other job in the world where you get to make such good money just for being alive.
Now, let’s move on to the less obvious perks. First off, there’s the ability to travel. If you’ve ever worked at a bookmaker, you know that they always give their employees plenty of opportunities to travel and meet people. And not just anyone will do; you have to be a good fit for the job. This also means that they will often send you to places like China, Thailand, and India to make money off of gamblers from all over the world. While you’re there, you will get to enjoy the foods and culture of another country, all while taking home some extra cash. Who knows? You might even make friends with some of the other employees while you’re traveling the world. Or at least hang out with some of the other employees more often than you would with your friends at home. You never know when a trip might be organized, and you never know when you might get sent somewhere for a special assignment. So, in summary, there’s a lot to like about being a bookmaker employee.
The Dangers Of Working At A Bookmaker
While all of this is true, there are also some pretty awesome perks that come with working at a bookmaker. For the most part, these are good perks, but they can also be pretty bad ones. And it’s all about how you use them. Let’s take a look. First, there’s the money. Second, there’s the ability to travel. Third, there’s the awesome social life. Let’s examine each of these in turn. The first one is pretty cool, but it’s also really easy to abuse. You will make a lot of money, quickly, if you’re lucky. However, you will eventually be hit with a 50 cent charge for every 10 dollar bill you withdrawal. The second one is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you get to travel the world and see other cultures. On the other hand, you might end up spending more time working than traveling, if you are not careful. On the third hand, there’s the awesome social life that comes with being a bookmaker employee. However, you will find that some people abuse this privilege easily, becoming the center of the community and being invited to events everywhere they go. On the whole, these are excellent perks that come with working at a bookmaker. But it’s also important to be careful and not abuse the privilege.
The first and most obvious perk of working at a bookmaker is the money. You will make a great deal of money, easily, if you play your cards right. Whether you’re taking bets on the go, or you sit at home and access the betting lines via an internet connection, you will make large amounts of money very quickly. Unfortunately, this also makes you a target. Since you’re making such good money, people will want to take you out. Sometimes this can be good; you can make a lot of money when people want to bet big. But since this is a criminal endeavor, the chances are you will eventually be hit with a fine or arrest. In most cases, though, this will happen after you’ve already been hit with a 50 cent charge for every 10 dollar bill you withdrew. It’s not a pretty picture, especially since it’s so easy for a bookmaker to track your activity. If you want to keep your money, you will have to follow some very strict rules, such as: never letting your bank account get below $10,000, and avoiding anything even remotely suspicious. After a while, this habit becomes second nature, and you will wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Keep in mind: all of this can change at any time. One wrong move, and, poof!, you’re 50 cent poorer and back to square one.
The Ability To Travel
Since we’re on the topic of money, let’s briefly talk about the ability to travel. Even if you never leave the state of New York, you will be able to travel the world and meet different people. And not just anyone will do; you have to be a good fit for the job. If you are chosen for this position, you will be able to begin working immediately. However, you will have to wait a couple of weeks before you can leave. During this time, you will get to sit at a desk, access the internet, and make money off of other people’s gambling activity. While you’re waiting, you will get to read, study, and make copious notes. And if you’re a fast typer, you might even be able to keep yourself busy, so that the time goes faster. Before you know it, a year has gone by, and you’re still waiting to go on your first trip. Of course, this is assuming that you’re not arrested beforehand or hit with a 50 cent charge for every 10 dollar bill you withdraw.
This is one of the many reasons why the majority of workers at a bookmaker are either professional gamblers or really good students hoping to better their life through a career in gambling. Or, for the lucky ones, a bit of both. The ability to travel and be near the desk is definitely one of the perks of working at a bookmaker.
The Awesome Social Life
Bookmakers know how to have a good time. If you are a part of this team, there will always be something fun and informal going on. After all, the entire office is essentially a big, happy family. The difference is that at a bookmaker, the familial atmosphere is present 24/7. You will find that most people will try and make friends with you, simply because you’re new. While this can be a good thing, you will eventually have to keep your guard up, especially since some of these individuals will try and take advantage of your situation. Still, it’s a cool experience, overall, and you will learn a lot about human nature. People will try and make new friends with you, simply because you’re new. While this is a good thing, you will eventually have to keep your guard up, especially since some of these individuals will try and take advantage of your situation.
On the whole, this is one of the many reasons why people like working for a bookmaker. You will make a lot of money, easily, if you play your cards right. And it’s pretty cool to be able to make a living off of something you’re good at and enjoy doing. Sometimes, you’ll even make a lot of money and not have to worry about paying your rent; this happens pretty often when there’s a big game coming up. But you have to be careful; there’s a lot of theft and fraud going on, and it’s all hidden from the public, so that nobody knows what’s happening.
