Gambling bet collector is a job for seniors according to my father when I was young. During those days, illegal betting in horse races and illegal lotto were prevalent. Some in our neighborhood would be collecting bets that they will forward to the boss who is the gambling lord. It may be a complicated system for you to understand but here's how it works. A bettor places a bet and wait for the result that is shown on tv. Instead of going to the legal off track betting station, the collector comes to the comfort of his home. Besides, the bettor only pays 90% of his bet as if getting a discount. That's the come on of the so called illegal bookies. Most bookies collectors are the old fogeys who try to earn their keep. And when the bettor wins, he also gives a tip to the collector. It looks good at the outset. However, it is an illegal job and so many of those collectors have been arrested. Until now there are bookies collector but in a stealth manner only to escape the eyes of the cops.
