Founded in 1994 by Calvin Ayre, Bodog Entertainment opened Bodog Sportsbook. In 1999, the
Bodog Casino was born. Finally in 2004, Bodog Poker jumped onto the scene with a flashy new
poker room that offered many tournament prize-pool overlays with weak players that streamed in
from the Sportsbook and Casino.
It has just been announced that the Bodog name brand has changed to Bovada, as far its US
operation is concerned, while its Bodog name will still remain the same for the rest of the world.
The latest move will help satisfy the concerns of online gambling licensed countries where the
Bodog brand operates, who may not have wanted to be associated with a brand name opposing
the US government’s ban.
Bodog's exciting and fast-growing multi-player online poker community features Texas Holdem,
Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7-Card Stud, and 7-Card Stud Hi/Lo.
The tables are very loose at Bodog and there are two explanations: The absence of high stake
players, who are the ones driving up competition at other online poker rooms. Bodog has casino,
sport and horse betting activities all integrated in one place. The benefit to the good poker
players is that you will find gamblers at the tables coming from these other parts of the site. Let
us be honest. If you serious about online poker, this is the type of players you love to see at your
table, not sharks.
Bodog Poker is geared toward new and casual players, with highly customizable and easy-to-
use software, and plenty of low buy-in Sit and Gos and multi-table tournaments designed
specifically for beginners. The newest software update was designed to appeal to the
recreational player and introduces Anonymous Tables; that do not allow third parties to track
players play using any type of software programs or HUDs. Players Names are completely
hidden (show up as numbers) in all cash, SNG and Tournament play. Also new is the Rabbit
Cam, In-Client Blackjack, and the ability to play 20 MTTs at once. Cash and SNG play is still
limited to 4 tables simultaneously.
