    What do you think the approx daily handle is for the big A+ books?

    Iíve googled around out of curiosity to no luck. Things will obviously be a bit slower this time of year without footballl and basketball but Iím talking your typical day. Any thoughts?

    More than one smaller book has told me they have daily handles in the millions.

    I'd guess the turnover would be mind boggling at places like 5Dimes and Bookmaker.

    At Pinnacle, I often bet something and instantly rebet it. There are only 1 or 2secs between those bets but the bet ticket number is 10 to 30 numbers apart...meaning they take (in the busy season) thousands of bets an hour. I'd guess their turnover runs in the billions a year.

    Even now the numbers are 2 to 8 numbers apart after only a few seconds.

    IBC had 45 billion annual turnover back in 2011

    With the global betting market massively increasing since then it must be something like 70+

    I just remember this article from 2011: http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/print/d-80362919.html

    Since then I never found any news which mentioned concrete figures about the Asian betting market. Only an insider or whistleblower could know.

    This is the way to reverse engineer it.

    Problem is, it's almost impossible to know what the average bet is. I'd guess the average bet is $30 and the median bet is $15? Lot of poor losers out there haha
