Rake is big, but there's a ton of money to be made in the cash games.

Sometimes. I will say however that in general, people here severely underestimate just how much extra rake they are paying at Bovada with virtually no RB relief whatsoever. It all depends on the games and levels you play and your other options. In some cases, for some players, depending on the site we are comparing, you can double your win rate on Bovada and still not be making a penny more than you would have on site B with much better rake rates, and its not always easy to double or more your win rate regardless of the better games.

After playing for a few hours, the hand history window takes a very long time to load.

It feels so scummy to me that I've been banned from playing in Thailand, yet my email still gets heavily spammed with "promotions" to encourage me to degen. my money away at live casino and sports.

How does the free 100% deposit sports bet you get win you sign up work if you win. You get bonus money you can unlock by playing poker right? How long do you get to unlock it? Is it the same two month time frame as the 100% deposit bonus money so it is best to make this sports bet as soon as possible in that initial 2 months to have as much time as possible to unlock the money or will the time frame start whenever you place this bet within that initial 2 months?

The sports bet bonus you need to bet a certain amount of money until you're able to cash it out (I think it's 20x). You can only clear it with sports bets, so I stayed away from it. Also, if you lose the bet, you're on the hook for the money you lost and it will be deducted from any cash outs you make until you meet the rollover. So it's not really a "free" bet.

This is wrong. Not trying to be a jerk. Just want people to have the correct info.


You deposit $200. You get a "free" $100 sports bet. You have to roll over the $100 free bet (win or lose).

The way the calculate the rollover is: Your initial deposit $200 PLUS your free bet $100= the amount to be rolled over. That would give you $300 to rollover.

How do you clear this $300 rollover?

You can do that by earning 900 poker points (3x rollover)
You can do that by betting 6000 in the casino (20x rollover)
You can do that by betting 900 in sports book (3x rollover)


The sports bet can be cleared soley through casino, sports book or in the poker room. It can also be cleared with a combination of the 3.

I know for a fact you can clear the sports bet in the poker room because I did it.

Well, I wish I knew that, because that seems extremely easy to clear. I had been told by multiple people in the past that it had to be cleared with sports betting only.

Can I cash in my cheque only in Canada or can I use my bank in Mexico, Costa Rica, Hongkong, China for that too?

Both sportsbook and cashier related questions are both outside of my area. I would refer to your operator's support for answers to these questions.

How long do you have to clear it the sports bet bonus? Does the clock start ticking from your deposit made date or your win of the sports bet date to clear the bonus?

Is there any plan to add $3/6 and $5/10 Heads Up Cash Game tables? Only going to $2/4 is kind of useless.

They'll probably all be gone eventually.

Bodog Ice,
I asked a couple weeks ago and got no response. You have a new visa debit card withdrawal option but I'm not sure how it works. Will it credit to my bank account and about how long will it take.

Hello,

Sorry about missing your post the first time around. The network (which I am the liaison for here) doesn't work with the cashout process.. that is handled at the operator level. Any questions regarding cashout/deposits should be handled via support.

No, they've said more than once that they have no plans for the immediate future to increase them. The type of players that play them aren't the ones that fit their business model (perhaps not the official reason, but that's generally the consensus).

I'm surprised they offer 2/4 tbh.

It would be super nice if you guys just offered some sort of regular incentives for play to players instead of these drawings that most of us don't even believe award anything to any actual player. Atleast with the set weekly cash rewards players actually got something back for the high rake we pay.

I play 7-8 hours a day and haven't received a single thing back in any of the gimmick drawings in the last year and it's annoying that you even dangle it in front of our faces.

Bodog Network uses a "recreational player model." Don't hold your breath waiting for rake based rewards for grinders any time soon... it's not going to happen. Instead, be happy that it's a super soft place to go fishing, and enjoy your above average win-rate on the tables.

The network is always reviewing their game offerings and adds games where they feel will work best. I did ask the network specifically about your request of games, and they have no plans of offering those limits anytime soon.

When you get disconnected from the table, can you please take note of the table. A screenshot would be ideal.. but if you could send me the table name, the last hh you played (or the time), and what player number you are.. that would be helpful.

Most promotions and bonuses are up to the operator's discretion, with an exception for things like Black Diamond Poker Open.
