Are The Bovada Bonuses Worth It?

I can't really figure out the Bovada bonus system. The other day I wagered $500 on a +120 game. I won. Profit should have been $600, but not all of that $600 was available for me to withdraw due to some portion of it being tied up in a bonus rollover. I was upset because at the time I placed the bet I had $500 available to withdraw, therefore any money I make with that should be available to withdraw immediately, imo. But that wasn't the case. You have to bet more in order to have the money released/available to withdraw.

For example if I have exactly $500 available to withdraw and an addition $10 locked up in bonus funds, and I wager $500 on a +1.20 team, I should have $1100 (my initial $500 plus the $600 profit from the wager) available to withdraw after that game (more if the bonus cleared). But I was only able to withdraw $1090 which is messed up. That was my $500 that I put on the game. None of that was tied up in bonuses. Therefore I should get the full credit for the win.

Furthermore the amount I have tied up in bonus funds changes as I keep playing a table game or slots, for example. It can be originally listed as $10 with 0% clearance, but as I play some casino game, for example, the value of the bonus grows at the percentage approaches 100%. There system is extremely confusing.

In the end is it worth it?

never ever ever everrrrrr use their bonus rewards. Takes foreverrrrrrrrrr and so much luck to actually fully unlock one so you can withdraw money. They are just a trap.

Re: Are The Bovada Bonuses Worth It?

Ive had quite a few bovada accounts. The bonuses are very convoluted and take forever to clear. I think some of them get released incrementally but honestly I dont even know. Youll probably get limited to 25 dollars well before you even make a dent in the rollover.

Sure seems that way to me. They are so shady.
