Bodog Sports book Review
Bodog is one of the most famous names in online gaming – Google it and see. The company has gone all out to build a serious juggernaut of an online brand, with huge success – the name is known world wide. The brand is global, and is sub-licensed to the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group in North America: naturally players from the USA are most welcome here.
Bodog is far more than just a sportsbook, however. The site features an online casino with a huge range of casino games, a fully functional poker room where thousands of players battle it out daily, and a racebook where you can wager on horses.
Additionally, the site is recognized as having one of the best customer service teams in the industry, which says a lot. The site has been running for around seven years, and is licensed and regulated in Costa Rica.
Games and Software
Bodog uses a mix of software for its various sections. It’s sports betting and poker software are entirely proprietary and were developed in house. The casino side of things is licensed from Real Time Gaming, featuring around 60 of their hottest online games: video slots, blackjack, baccarat, roulette … it’s all here.
No part of the Bodog site requires download or installation on your computer – it can all be accessed right in your web browser. However, if you want to try out the mobile phone version of Bodog, you’ll need to download that to your phone.
In terms of sports wagering, you name it, Bodog has it. Their sports book is now a thing of legend, offering the opportunity to place wagers on all American sports – all of it. Moving to the international area, you can also place wagers on golf, motor racing, European football, the English Premiere league, the rugby, the cricket, and more besides.
In the racebook, you’ll find more than 80 different US horse racing tracks listed, not counting many international venues. And of course, you can wager on bizarre topical things that happen to pop up in the business, political and entertainment worlds.
Wagering limits tend to be flexible – you can negotiate for a higher limit once they know who you are.
Bonuses and Loyalty Programs
Like most sports bets that don’t make their income from people blowing their credit on slots, the initial welcome bonus is small. Well, it’s smaller than you’d find at a purely casino site: 10% match on your first deposit. However, the bonus yield is $1,000, which is nothing to sneeze at, plus the play through requirement on the bonus is only 1x – completely unheard of in online gaming circles.
The online casino and the poker room both feature rewards programs based on comp points.
Fund your Bodog account with deposits from most credit cards, bank transfers, or e-wallets such as NETeller, eChecks or FirePay.
Safety and customer service
All connections between your computer and Bodog are encrypted to prevent data theft. If you get stuck at any stage, you can email the support staff, or contact them at their 24/7 call center.
