Software is very fast - probably built in .NET - very responsive and
you can move from screen to screen instantly. The layout and
colors are easy on the eye, sounds are not annoying - best US
poker soft in my book.

Game selection and traffic are not too bad - games are not too
hard to find. I also like the graphics and the concepts behind their
promos - love it when creative people run the shop.

The only wish is: if the traffic was three-four times higher, this site
would be a dream.

not all US residents may use Bovada - I couldn't even register on the site as a New York resident. I'm not sure which states can, but, that'd be good information to have right up front here.

Bovada Room Review


Bovada.lv Overview



Bovada opened in December 2011 and is operated by the same people as Bodog. Bodog Poker made the decision to pull out of the US market and instead of banning all US play, opened a new room - Bovada Poker. 

Bovada hosts a number of poker games. Besides Texas Hold'Em, Bovada boasts Omaha and 7 Card Stud variants. Ring gsme action is primarily concentrated to low-stakes No Limit Hold'Em; however, there are always a few tables of Omaha and 7 Card Stud running. Sit and Go action at Bovada is suprisingly lively. The room offers a healthy variety of games, stakes, and tables with regards to SNGs. Multi-table tournaments are also popular. Bovada's Sunday $100,000 Guaranteed is one of the best values on the internet. 

Cashouts at Bovada are relatively quick. Checks are the most popular method and are usually recieved in a week after your payout has been approved. 

Overall, Bovada is a solid poker room, and perhaps the best choice for US players. Although Bovada doesn't have the game selection of a giant like PokerStars, the brand is reputable and has adapted to changes in the legal and regulatory environment. 

The only convenient deposit option for US players is to use a Visa card. However, these deposits are subject to a 4.9% fee, which is pretty large. So a $1,000 deposit would charge you an additional $49.

7. 100% deposit bonus is “unlocked” by accumulating points, which are awarded based on amount of rake the player pays in the first month. *note: this is very tough to clear playing recreationally, or with only a single table at 5NL. I only cleared ~80% (more than 1/2 of it was in the final week when I was playing 4 tables).

8. HUD support is useless for vital post-flop stats – playing 25NL and above is a different game with a much higher variance than other sites. All players have a thinner edge on each other which means the rake is tougher to beat.

9. No rakeback – although, I understand that rakeback is slowly being dropped from many sites.

10. Seat hopping is difficult. If you leave a seat (for any reason, even disconnect), then you can’t sit back down at the same table until 5 minutes later. It is likely that there will be no available seat when the 5 minutes elapses. However, when a new seat opens, all the notes players had on you (or your notes on them) are gone. If you take notes on a scratch paper or document, then you can retain notes on the table, while they lose notes on you.

11. They have single-player blackjack tables accessible from the poker lobby.
