Bovada Sportsbook Review
If the name BOVADA looks and sounds familiar, that's because it is. Bovada is the rebranding of bodog, exclusively for US players.
The owners, Morris Mohawk Gaming Group, previously had a brand name licensing agreement with Bodog Brand, which allowed them to use the name "bodog." As that license expires at the end of 2011, rather than renewing they decided to go in a different direction and re-brand their product for US players to Bovada.
As they state, "Welcome to Bovada - same operator, new name and look," US players of the former bodog site will be able to login with their existing account details with their balance transferred over automatically. The same level of service that was synonymous with the Bodog Brand is promised to continue, as is the great payment options for US players. Players can rest assured that all transactions through Bovada are safe and secure and they offer some of the most popular and successful payment methods for US players.
Whether you want to play slots, table games, online poker, bet on sports or bet on horses Bovada is the place to play for US players.
