Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

Gotchya. Part of the first issue is something I suggested a few weeks ago, which is bringing back the old method of telling the software of telling what to top up to, rather than how much to top up (tell it to top up to $200, rather than adding $20). The top-up button not working is something I think I passed along before, but I'll be sure to pass it along again just to be sure.

Change the default buyin to whatever it was on the old software. 30bb buyin default for full stack tables is completely ******ed.

Re: *** Official Bodog Network Support Thread ***

I think 60 bb default buyin is fairly standard. People can still buy in for whatever they're most comfortable with but 60 bbs should be the default.

I can also say the bet box is frustrating. Being able to easily click on it and type in the bet would make life much easier. Right now you have to click once on it, once on the table, and then back on it and hope another table doesnt require action otherwise you have to start all over.

I think if you guys are not going to allow us to see full games in the lobby, itd be great if you could tell us how many games of each limit are running. Something in the cash lobby that said "8 full 1/2 6m games running" "10 full 1/2 FR games running" Etc. etc. would be really helpful in determining whether or not to start a new table or to wait for a seat to open up.

Thanks Ice.

It wasn't more than a few years ago that 20BB was the min buyin on most tables online.

The short stacks really drive the action on Bovada these days. I vote against changing anything about the default buyin or the min buyin. Making it 60BB is going to kill the action.

There's no way that changing the default buy in is going to kill any action. People who want to buy in with 30 bbs still can. They can just type in the dollar amount they want.

Sorry, I thought you meant raise the minimum buyin to something above 30bbs. I would still prefer the default to be 30bbs, but would also like an option to change that for those of us who would. I always buyin full so I would prefer to have it default to 100bbs, but I think that most people we want to play against are going to just choose the default and play a hand as soon as possible, so I like that part the way it is.

Dear Adam,

Thanks for contacting Bovada Poker Customer Service.



We understand your frustration that you are having technical issue in our Poker Software.



In order to run the Poker games without experiencing connection issues you may want to consider some system maintenance to try to keep your connection to our network servers as strong as possible. We recommend cleaning out your computer on a regular basis. This can include clearing your Internet cache, de-fragmenting your computer, or even having it professionally cleaned out. As well, simply turning it off at least every few days will help to free up memory on your computer. If you are low in memory, your computer may not process the software in real time, which is essential for online poker as you only have 28 seconds to respond when playing your cards. Running other programs while you play poker will have the same effect because your processor is trying to keep up with all applications.

Please note, that the software cannot tell when a player is simply lagged behind in their connection, or if they have actually stood up from their computer. Thus, if it does not receive a signal within the allotted time, and you have not actually disconnected from the network, you will be folded as if you had stood up from your computer and also put on auto-fold until your return. Again we do understand your concern that these issues may be originating from our end; however, when one player experiences connectivity issues, and the game continues on with all other clients still being able to take action when it is their turn, the problem obviously originates from, and is isolated to, that one player.
Geez I play with tethering from my smartphone you think i would be lagging nope everything been running smooth as of late

Only you would wait until after they said the lag was fixed to reply to a post of mine from weeks ago when the lag problems were still happening.

Not at all.. I believe I responded by saying that the multi table sngs are something that they'd like to improve. The way it works is they have a road map planned for the next year or so about the direction they plan on taking improvements, promotions, and additions to the software and mtsngs are on that list of improvements but isn't something that needed immediate attention like the lag did. Trust me, Bodog definitely agreed that the mtsngs need improvement and more attention and it will come.. but there are more pressing issues that they'd like to address first.

Ice, the $50 HU tournament...I've tried to play it a couple of times now. Hasn't gone either time. It lists a $500 guarantee but then requires 16 players minimum? Either make it $400 guaranteed and make it a minimum of 8 players or advertise it as a $800 guaranteed. As it stands, it's kind of a silly guarantee considering the min numbers of players.

Alright.. I'll pass that suggestion along.

Just a thought, since you play the hu.. is there anything that could change to get that mtt a better turnout? Different time? Once a week instead of every night? Once per week with a bigger/smaller buyin?


Also.. I'm sure most of you have noticed it by now in the lobby but along with the WSOP packages, Bodog is also doing satellites where winners win APT Macau packages. Check out your client's website for more details.

Well, I get the reason that there are two...that you're trying to cater to two stake sizes, but I do think you're potentially leeching from them by doing that. The second one is definitely too late for most people also. (Though reasonable for my hours.) If I had to guess at doing it better, I'd say chop out the second one and turn the 8:45pm into a $20+2. (Though I'd personally prefer $30+3 or $50+5.)

Maybe on Sunday you could make it special and up the buy-in and guarantee.

System Down? Can't open or sit at cash tables, restarted twice, can log in and register for SNGs and MTTs.

Same problem here. There is no empty tables so you can't even start a new one you have to wait for the seat on existing table to pop-up...

Yep new tables aren't spawning so it is extremely difficult finding any games.
