BOVADA SPORTSBOOK REVIEW
When Bodog’s brand was removed from the United States in 2011, license holder MMGG continued to offer gaming under a new brand – Bovada.lv. So new players who see the Bovada name and wonder if it’s a safe and reputable place to play, the answer is an emphatic ‘yes.’
Not much has changed at Bovada, they have the same excellent poker software and tournaments, the best array of fun sports betting options and props, along with exciting casino and racebook. It’s the same owner, just a new brand. So while the Bovada name is somewhat new, the people, software and integrity dates back more than a decade.
Name your sport and Bovada will put you in the middle of the action with competitive odds and an industry-favorite sportsbook platform. From NFL to NBA, MLB and NHL, you can bet on just about any sport at Bovada. When it comes to event betting, Super Bowl, March Madness and dozens of other events are available to wager on, and there are countless live betting options and prop bets as well. Bovada truly has it all and it’s no wonder it ranks number one here, and on many sportsbook reviews sites such as TopSportsbooks.com.
The bonuses have actually improved under the new flag (Canadians can continue to access the Bodog brand via Bodog.eu) to 50% in the poker room, 50% in the casino and a free 50% free bet bonus in the sportsbook.
If you prefer to use Bitcoin, Bovada offers plenty of great bonuses for first-time bettors. Their 50% up to $500 welcome bonus is a great value if you make a Bitcoin deposit using the code BVSBITCOIN50. However, you must rollover the bonus before you can make a withdrawal. Their terms indicate a 5x rollover for sports betting or horse betting, and 30x for casino games.
Looking to bet the big bucks? They have a bigger bonus for the Bovada high rollers, which is 150% up to $1,500 and can be used up to three times using the code BVCBITCOIN150. The bonus is subject to a 25x rollover and you will not be able to make a withdrawal before you complete the requirement.
