Bovada: Not Recommended
Bovada is not recommended!.
Bovada Casino REVIEW
Players from United States cannot play at Bovada casino.
Review last updated - July 2017
Bovada Casino - the re-branded Bodog Casino - is one of the biggest and best RTG casinos available on the market today.
Bovada are part of the Bodog group (they were previously bodog.com). 3 of the 6 reviewers who work regularly for the site have held accounts within the Bodog group for a few years. The reports from these reviewers are all positive. Alongside this, the Bodog group – and by extension Bovada – have a very positive reputation within the industry.
Predatory Dormancy Clause - automatic Not Recommended. Bovada state: "3.8 Dormant Accounts. Your account will be deemed 'Dormant' if you have not made a deposit, a withdrawal, or placed a bet/wager for a period of eighteen (18) months. At seventeen months of inactivity, we will provide an email notice to the email address registered to the account, advising that the Account balance will be set to zero at thirty (30) days from the notice. If the Account remains dormant, at 18 months of inactivity, the Account balances are zeroed out." This is unacceptable - inactivity/dormancy should nt be used as an excuse to seize full balances.
We are aware of several complaint against this group at another portal that went unanswered.
During the May 2016 re-review a large number of slow pay complaints came to light.
This group of operators has forced all affiliates to receive payments in BitCoin. This is a retroactive change to affiliate contracts.

Players from United States NOT accepted.
Bovada does not accept players from the following countries: American Samoa, Oceania, United Kingdom, United States, United States Minor Outlying Islands, Virgin Islands, U.S..
No RTG casino that we are aware of publishes their slots house edge (RTP) information.
The Bovada comp point program offers 1 comp point for every $10 wagered on any game and every 100 comp points can be redeemed for $1. This is in line with the Playtech standard comp point program and above average for the industry.
In general it's sound advice to avoid any group that currently accept customers from the US - unless you have no choice - the vast majority of these groups operate in a far less professional and ethical manner than the casinos you'll find getting high ratings on this site. The Bodog group have in the past been an exception to that rule but recent payment issues, complaint issues with no response and affiliate payment changes have forced us to question this.
