Bodog’s new brand for the US market and license, Bovada, is now open to all US residents and Caribbean residents within a few select others. In addition to enjoying a new brand name (with even though a new look and site, it has the same feel, colors, and style of their other brands), you will all be able to enjoy their relatively new poker software released in the late fourth (4th) quarter of 2011.
If you are a player looking for some soft competition, easy games, greater odds and opportunities of winning more cash, a good, clean software and game selection, and finally, a US player looking for a trustworthy option for your games, then you will definitely want to come play and join Bovada Poker, where you not only get all the great perks of the above, but you can also enjoy the advantage of an online sportsbook, online casino, an online racebook, and an online poker room all with the use of just one (1) account.
Unlike Bodog, Bovada does have a slightly different welcome and initial deposit poker bonus of 100% up to $1,000; however, with the addition of the huge number of fish coming from the other channels (casino and sportsbook), you will be overflowing in earnings and winnings! To add to your bonuses and winnings, Bovada has the $100K weekly guaranteed tournament, which not only has a low buy-in, but it comes with overlays on each game, giving you a lot more winnings and opportunities to win it. There are $15K monthly freerolls split into two (2) games of $7,500 per month, the weekly $1,000 King of the Felt promotion or race – as you wish to see it -, and of course, the seasonal and special event games and bonuses that occur at times such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, St. Patricks’ and several other moments during the year – making it a fun-packed poker room for all players.
The software unfortunately is not mac friendly, but it is PC friendly –obviously- with a fast download client. The software comes with great features, such as the ‘rabbit cam’, which will show you what the next card “would have” been after the flop or the turn (for those curious ones out there). The ‘anonymous table’ for those active players who just do not want to be recognized each time – hence, helping you with your game and strategy, and making it more exciting for all other players too. ‘Multi-tabling’ with up to 20 games at a time, and ‘in-client blackjack or side games’, which is great for some quick games between hands, and for a quick break and change of game or scenery.
Luckily, Bovada makes part of the Bodog family, who has never missed a payout in over 16 years, making them one of the pioneers in the gaming industry still accepting US players and real money games, and making them one of the most trust-worthy rooms out there. They have provided all players with the choices of credit cards, rapid transfers, and MyPayLinQ as deposit methods (between others for VIPs). As for withdrawal methods, you can use the same rapid method and MyPayLinQ, in addition to checks by courier – all in a fast and secure manner.
