Updated In May, 2016 - This 2013 Bovada review is going to cover all of the products available at Bovada.lv. This includes the Bovada poker room, Bovada casino, Bovada sports book and Bovada race book. Bovada.lv was setup for Americans last year. Bodog is their parent company and they have become the top destination for poker players, sports bettors, casino gamblers and horse race bettors from the USA in 2013. Their only real rival is BetOnline. Our BetOnline Vs Bovada guide is a must read if you want to know which gambling company best matches your needs. All of the other U.S. poker sites, casinos and sports books have been losing players to Bovada.lv because of the lack of deposit options and more importantly, extremely slow payouts. Bovada has been steadily paying U.S. citizens in about a week via Fedex delivered checks. Compare that to the 8-16 week payouts at other US gambling sites, except for BetOnline. Even before the banking crisis at other gambling sites Bovada Sports has been the best sports betting site for Americans and even Europeans for many years. This corporation is valued in the billions and they own everything from online music companies to soft drink companies in Asia. Bovada.lv and Bodog are just as large as any of the big Euro gambling sites, something that no other U.S. gambling site or new online poker room can claim. This means that your money is extremely safe, a rarity in 2013. This 2013 Bovada.lv review includes unique bonuses at each property.
Bovada and BetAMU.org have some special bonuses for new members during the month of May in 2013. You will not need to enter a bonus code to claim any of these sign up bonuses, except for the casino bonuses. The other bonuses are tracked via our links to Bovada.lv so all you need to do is use them to visit their web site. If you have been to www.Bovada.lv in the last few months I strongly suggest clearing your cookies. If you had clicked on a link at another gambling site to visit Bovada a month ago and you click our link now you may be tracked to the previous web site and not receive the bonuses outlined below. These bonuses were issued to us on January 1st, 2013 and expire at the end of the year. I will update this page every time I am able to negotiate larger bonuses at Bovada.lv.
The Bovada sports book is their main product. The poker room and casino were added as over the years and have grown into powerhouses in their own right but sports betting is still the bread and butter at Bovada.lv. They accept bets the widest selection of sports in the industry plus a mix of political and entertainment betting options. You can bet on all American sports - both professional and college - European sports like FIBA basketball, Olympics and many obscure sports like darts, MMA, darts, cricket, motor sports, athletics, cycling, winter sports, Gaelic sports and dozens of others.
Bovada Sports does not always use the lines issued by bookmakers in Las Vegas. Many of the lines and slightly better and they are never worse, for the bettor at least. For instance, when all other bookmakers are offering a money line of +$180 on a certain team Bovada will go +$190. They also like to give an extra half point or even a full point on certain events. This is what attracts many Europeans to this bookmaker.
The Bovada poker room was the fifth largest a year ago and as of May or May, 2016 they are the largest US poker site and the 6th largest out of all Internet poker rooms. Fast payouts, great promotions and easy-to-beat competition have been key to their growth in 2013. Bovada Poker is the only room that uses anonymous screen names. When you sit at a table at Bovada you are simply known as Player 1, Player 2 and so on. Bovada did this because a large slice of their poker traffic consist of sports bettors and casino players, what serious players call "fish". This protects these players from data-mining sites that allow players to find important information about their competition by screen name searching. Some predicted that anonymous tables would ruin the super-soft atmosphere but it has done the opposite. Many beginners have flocked to Bovada Poker because they know that the competition will not have an unfair advantage over them.
Bovada's poker platform is also the best in the U.S. poker industry. Only Pokerstars and possibly Full Tilt - non U.S. rooms - have software that equals or exceeds Bovada's in quality, ease of use and cool features. Bovada Poker has developed more multi-table play features than any room so grinders will love that aspect of it. Bovada Poker's promotions in 2013 are also pretty cool. There is a Royal Flush bonus on all tables worth 50X the BB, a Badbeat bonus worth 100X the BB, $100,000 New Depositor tourney, leader boards, contests, give-aways, reload bonuses and much more. Use our link to claim the following Bovada Poker bonus.
This billion dollar company has developed one of the best USA online casino platforms in the world and certainly the best that is open to players from America. This platform is available in Instant Play and download formats. There are just under 300 games at the Bovada Casino in 2013 and 59 of the have progressive jackpots. The average US casino has around 75 games with 5 jackpots so the game variety at Bovada.lv is astounding. The jackpot total is well over $5,000,000. Here is a rundown of the casino games at Bovada:
There are dozens of table, video poker and slot games at the Bovada Casino that cannot be found elsewhere. They have also won awards for having higher payout percentages than other online casinos. There are a number of promotions at the Bovada Casino but I already covered the main ones in the bonus section above. A quick recap includes weekly reload bonuses, $21 for the first Blackjack of each day and a chance to win $2,100 and several other promos like that. The only Bovada.lv property that requires a bonus code and the use of our link in 2013 is the casino.
