Why Play on Bovada? On Bodog?

June 27, 2016

Here’s another popular inquiry I get all the time on Online Poker Update,

Why should I play on Bovada? On Bodog?

Is there a difference?

Bovada, is what once was Bodog here in the U.S. Bodog

Bovada has  been in existence here in the U.S. since the Fall of  2011.

Bovada.lv was created to replace the Bodog Brand here in the U.S.

Bovada is on the Bodog network, this means you are playing on  one of the most trusted and experienced internet gaming operators since the beginning of online gaming.

Bovada / Bodog offers completely anonymous play on the Poker tables, you are just a seat number while on any poker table or player number when entering a tournament.

You are the man with no-name (sound familiar?), no one can track your play, your habits or your losses or winnings…….

Nobody knows who or what you are when playing poker on Bovada / Bodog……….

The anonymous premise on the Bovada/Bodog network makes any player information very hard to come by and makes tracing any thing to anyone impossible.

There are no poker tracking software programs to identify your play, your play habits, how much you have won or lost………nothing can be found on your internet poker play while on Bovada or Bodog.

This also means that there are no verified player traffic numbers for Bovada and the Bodog network anywhere, I have seen daily player estimates total as high as 30,000 players during peak play hours—-

This would make Bovada.lv the most popular internet gaming option for U.S. players and make the Bodog Network one of the premier internet options for players worldwide

The Bodog Network streamlines their gaming offerings to suit players from many different areas of the world:

U.S. Players can go to Bovada Poker

Canadian players can go to Bodog Poker Canada

The rest of the world players (European, South American and Asian Players are most welcome) can visit Bodog Poker Here

Of course if you want more than Poker, each of those sites will have whatever you are looking for, be it Poker, Blackjack, Roulette, Slots, Sports Betting or playing the Horses……

When on your account you can access every game available on the Bodog network, including any casino game, sports betting and horse racing.

Look at everything offered...

Look at everything offered on Bovada / Bodog ……

Bovada / Bodog has one of the best reputations as far as player cash-outs for a Internet Poker/ Gaming provider.

Bovada has been rated a top option for U.S. and Worldwide Player Cash Outs.

The typical cash out takes only 10 days to submit and receive for U.S. Players.

All U.S. Players will receive their check cash-outs via Courier within 10 days.

Bovada/Bodog added Bit Coin deposits and cash-outs in 2016 and basically eliminated the need for any and all WU and MG payments and deposits in the process in 2016.

Bit Coin Deposits and Cashouts take literally minutes to complete and like your play on Bovada/BoDog are completely anonymous.

Bovada/BoDog will walk you through the entire Bit Coin process and make it as easy as possible for you to collect your winnings.

You can call 1-888-263-0000 anytime 24 hours a day with any questions or problems.

The rest of the world (ROW) players on Bodog have experienced even faster cash out times than U.S players, this is because there are more of cash out options available to players in other countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and others.


Bovada and Bodog also offer some of the best monthly promotional programs for worldwide players you will find anywhere online.

Did you know that The Class of 2013 (The Bovada / Bodog WSOP™ promotion) sent over 100 players to the 2013 WSOP™?

These monthly promotions often include some very generous cash back options for frequent poker play, raffles for poker vacations, tournament entries for both on-line and live events such as the WSOP™.

It is not unusual for Bovada to give their players a chance, during monthly promotions to get up to $10 cash back for as little as $16.66 in total rake paid on a weekly basis.

No, it is not a one time only rake back deal, it is your basic Poker deposit BONUS pay out. There are also monthly promotions that seem to repeat almost every month (making it almost equivalent to rake back).

There are also the Bad Beat and Royal Flush Bonus Promo’s:

The Royal Flush Bonus pays up to $200, you will win 50X the Big Blind when you hit a royal flush and show your hand. To receive your Bonus, just e-mail customer service the table name/number and hand number to collect your bonus.

The Bad Beat Bonus is 100X the Big Blind ($1000 max) any Aces full of Kings (AAAKK) beat by Quads or better will qualify.  At least 3 players must be involved in hand and hand must go to showdown. Just send hand number to Customer service to collect.

Deposit Bonuses:

There are always new and very generous Deposit Bonus programs for Poker, Casino and Sports Betting players.

Casino and Sports bettors also qualify (there are play requirements) for frequent Re-load Bonuses and weekly cash back rebates and play bonuses for their efforts.

The Current Poker Deposit Bonus is 100% up to $1000 for new deposits

The Current Casino Bonus is up to 8 match bonuses worth up to $3000 in free play for Casino deposits.

The Current Sports Betting Deposit Bonus is 50% up to $250

Think Big 100% Bonus

A week or month does not go by where a player can earn a deposit or a re-load Bonus on Bovada or Bodog, check back often as their promotional programs change and improvements are likely.
