What We Say: Company details: Morris Mohawk Gaming Group established Bovada in 2011 to replace Bodog as it exited the US market. While Bodog.eu continues to operate outside of the US, for US sports bettors, Bovada is the same as Bodog. Only the name is different. To ensure security and reliability of payouts they hold all deposits in a segregated Swiss private reserve account. Bovada employs the same stable and good-looking proprietary betting software that was created by Bodog.
Marketing and Brand: Bovada aims to build on Bodog's tradition of an aggressive online and offline marketing strategy. While the market has definitely changed since the passage of the UIGEA and Black Friday, that hasn't stopped Bovada from making use of the best marketing methods in the book.
Prices: While Bovada caters to recreational gamblers, and so have relatively low limits, their lines are extremely competitive and they offer a lot of good deals on juice. Bovada's target audience is the "regular guy", the small and recreational bettor, and they make no bones about the fact that wise-guys and sharks won't be well-received.
Customer Service: Only time will tell for Bovada in the customer service department, but our preliminary tests as well as the reports coming in from users indicate that Bovada is continuing the long-held tradition of great service that Bodog staked its reputation on. Unlike many offshore sportsbooks' CS departments, Bovada's operators are articulate, educated, friendly, and knowledgable. Calls are clear over a state-of-the-art communication system, and emails are answered quickly.
Bet/Game Variety: Bovada maintains the great variety players saw for so long with Bodog. They continue to offer one of the largest varieties of sides, props, and recreational wagers around. In addition to the wider variety of bets in the sportsbook, Bovada offers over 60 casino and poker games.
Bonuses: One perk of the switch from Bodog to Bovada: whereas Bodog's bonus was a steady substandard 10% year-in and year-out, Bovada's sign-up bonus is 20% with a maximum bonus of $100. This is finally on par with most every sportsbook in the industry.
Transfers and Fees: Bovada's transfer fees for deposits and withdrawals vary per method but average 5%. This is a bit steeper than a majority of the sports books, but not inordinate by any means.
