Bovada Bookmaker History And License

Formerly known as Bodog (rebranded as Bovada for U.S. customers), Bovada was established in 1994, making them one of the oldest online sportsbooks. is the first major gaming brand to offer Bitcoin. We allow American players the opportunity to bet on all major sports, over 300 casino games, and top North American horseracing tracks. Bovada now has poker back and has added a live chat option for customer service. Bovada announced in August of 2016 that its poker room was acquired by Ignition Casino.

The sportsbook is known for its best in class user experience and leading software. The fully responsive website is a favorite among players across a wide range of devices; especially now that mobile wagering accounts for well over 60% of all sports and casino bets. The sportsbook is known for its emphasis on the user experience. The bookie is one of very few sportsbooks who routinely give away free money in its prop and entertainment betting markets.

Bovada New Domain

On December of 2011, Sportsbook Review reported that Bodog (SBR rating A+) changed their domain name for US players. The new domain,, features the same software, platform, customer service and betting options as Bodog players are accustomed to. The sportsbook only accepts US players.

Bovada Site

Bovada Mobile App | Casino

The bookie offers a mobile sportsbook available for Apple iPhone, iPad, Android, Samsung, and all internet enabled mobile devices. If they don’t have an app specific for your device, you can use the generic app which works well on any type of smartphone or tablet. The mobile casino (free and real money games) recently opened for business as well, but mobile poker is not yet available.

Bovada Sports Betting

For the most common types of bets, the vig at Bovada is standard for the industry. For example, a bet on an NFL or NBA point spread will have a 10% vig, like almost everywhere else. The same can be said for NFL or NBA over/under (game total) bets. So, for most bets that people want to make, the vig is right where it should be. Bovada also offers dime lines for MLB, and a few other sports as well.

Bovada Deposits And Withdrawals

The Sportsbook has a reputation for being one of the few online sportsbooks that bettors can always trust. Like every U.S. online sportsbook, Bovada has occasional issues with deposits & withdrawals – but not because they’re trying to stop you from depositing or because they want to keep your money. They may have to jump through a few hoops, but they always get customers paid.

They accept Visa credit & debit cards – a deposit option that generally takes 2-4 minutes to complete. Other deposit options are available as well, but Visa is the easiest. Also, they seem to have the highest deposit success-rate of all U.S. sportsbooks, giving handicappers another good reason to bet here.

With that said, the vig on money lines & prop bets at Bovada is typically higher than other sites. Although the best money lines can be found here from time to time, that’s not usually the case – so we encourage bettors to shop around.

Bovada Live

They offer to bet for all of the most popular US sports, plus all major international sports. They have a great live betting platform, possibly the best available for U.S. residents. In recent months, the bookmaker has been adding more & more games for live betting, and more bets per game as well. It also posts many of their lines very late. For example, NFL, NCAA, NBA point spreads are posted early, but money lines and over/under odds usually don’t get posted until 24-48 hours before game time. Although late value can be found at Bovada, this makes it more difficult (or impossible) to find early value.
