That said, in my opinion, we're simply in limbo right now waiting for new legislation which will force them to shape up or ship out to survive in the marketplace.
During this period of transition I am looking to exploit whatever soft games are available with the goal of making my bank account larger.
To that end, I have found Bovada to be a very lucrative opportunity thus far. I am simply asking if there are any issues that I have yet to encounter which may alter my current perception of the potential profit to be made there.
Can you please a) provide a response which furthers the dialogue I'm trying to start, or b) explain what exactly it is that makes you so upset?
I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm a longtime poster with 10s of thousands of posts on this site (this is simply an alias I felt was wise to use) so please tone down the condescension, I'm not a rando donk.
Thanks and look forward to your response
Hate wasn't directed at you, but yes, there was hate dripping from my post. I've been a loyal Bodog customer for years. They've ignored constant complaints about bugs for 4-5 years, insisting that the problem was on my end, my internet connection, my firewall, whatever. They had such basic flaws and basic bugs that it was obvious they were never intending on fixing them.
Then they come along and say oh wait, we're going to have the greatest software release ever, it will fix all the bugs, and will compete with the biggest online sites.
The software they released is actually worse than the original. I'm not even bringing in the anonymous player issue here. I'm talking about standard bugs that should never make an alpha release, much less see a customer base.
From there we go to the anonymous player feature. They implemented this and swore that a unique ID did not make it down to the client. This was disproved within 2 days, and then they lied about "fixing" it.
Now, on top of all this, Bodogavada execs released press releases, blog posts, and forum comments making fun of their loyal customer bases and flat out saying they didn't want any of their business. Did you read that? They don't want winning players on their site. Links to these articles can be found in the Bodog thread, but trust me, they're there.
So yeah, there's hate in my post. As a long time player I've called Bodog my home off and on since 2005 and feel like they just handed me my stuff in a box and told me to **** off. Which, they actually did.
