*** Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread *** [For lag-fixes see posts 34088 and 36179]

This thread is to separate the Bovada-related comments and questions from the Official Bodog Support Thread, which is there only for questions or concerns about anything Bodog-branded.

There is no official Bovada Rep at 2+2 at this time, but perhaps if discussion is effected in a civil manner, one might arrive in due course?

Thank you.

MH

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

Sometimes MTT lobbies take forever to update, which isnt generally a problem except in sats. Anybody know of any "trick" to get them to update? Ive tried keeping them open, closing them, minimizing them, etc.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

On desktop, client installs and loads fine. When I open a table w/ more than 1 person at it, it freezes. Been doing this since the update. If anyone has found a workaround let me know. Customer service hasn't been helpful.

Looks like the same bug that was there with the old software. Pretty interesting since Bodogavada stated that it was a complete re-write!

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

Just to clear up some confusion, the Bodog brand is no longer in the US market and Bovada.LV is the new domain used by Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (MMGG) now that their license to use the Bodog brand has expired. There are a number of bodog licensed operators still in operation including Bodog.co.uk, Bodog.ca and Bodog88.com.

One more thing, Bovada.lv is also part of the Bodog Poker Network.

Thanks,
Becky

If this is true, please do not post in this thread. This is for Bovada poker. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Edit/MH: Please note that I asked her to post a short explanation of this element of the current situation, for new readers. As Becky is a Bodog Rep, I doubt if she will post again in this Bovada thread.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

I heard advertised there is suppose to be new big shootout style tournaments but where do I find those. Shootout meaning you don't change tables until you are the last one left so everybody has the same number of chips when going to next table

When the tables freeze on me I just log out and log back in that usually does the trick for me.

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think we can expect a new rep from Bovada. If the Bodog network were a B&M casino, we'd be classified somewhere between 'cheats' and 'known card counters' in their customer pantheon.

Don't worry about being able to rat-hole on Bovada; I just did.

Since Bodog is awesome at answering all questions I am sure that if a Bovada rep comes on board, all questions about Bovada will also be answered.

Doesn't work. I'm not able to ever sit at a table, it just immediately freezes upon opening one.

Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling the software? I think it is odd that it freezes but with all the changes I guess it is not that surprising. Are you using a Mac or PC? What happens if you try to play like a sit and go does it give you the same problem? Customer service is useless and half the time I cannot understand them.

Any HUD that works for Bovada\Bodog?

Anyone know of any kind of HUDs that work for Bovada since the new release.

Someone was mentioning that holdem indicator works but only for a single session over the time you're at a table. I looked into this but haven't been able to find anything. Anyone heard anything else out there?

Re: *** Unofficial Bovada Thread ***

BOVADA's Casino doesn't even work.

I was trying to blast away my last $440.00 on Bovada by betting it on the casino to try and clear this bonus.

I was playing for over 1.5 hours, I only hit the bonus twice. So the 2nd time I hit the bonus, like 45 minutes after the first time I get 15 free spins. Guess what happens?

As soon as it spins once, and I have 14 free spins left a message comes up that says "invalid action" - and the wheels kept spinning w/o stopping. I waited 10 minutes, nothing happened. Waited another 15 minutes for Bovada support via chat and even though I was "1st in que", I was sitting there for 15 minutes.

Not even worth it, just take my $40 you scum bags. Not sure why I even thought the casino would be on the up and up.

I have no desire to hear Becky repeat the copy/paste quote re: Bovada branding. As those who followed the other Bodog threads know, I was supportive of Justin, answering questions I knew the answers to and at least give the benefit of the doubt to Bodog. However, Becky adds nothing to the conversation, and her posts are usually followed by 10-20 posts asking her questions that she never answers. This thread is more valuable to serve as players helping players with bugs they may have encountered themselves.

If Bovada is willing to send another rep to answer questions, I'd be very welcome to engage in civilized conversation. Becky does not fit the mold of someone who is interested in helping the players.

How do you pronounce bovada? does it rhyme with enchilada?

Edit/MH: Becky might be allowed to tell us this one, but I thought it was "bovver-der", as in, "Should anyone bovver-der play there?"
