What we like
As soon as you load up bovada’s home page you can see it’s special, and by that i mean a lot of time and effort has gone into building the best online player experience possible, every type of bet on almost every type of sport, casino or poker game is an option. the layout and navigation are simple to use and best of all your mobile device gives you the same exact betting site as your desktop or tablet will. graphics are clean and the site is extremely easy ti use, if you have not visited bovada in the last year then suggest you go back and give it a try. you will see the user interface has been modified completely.
Bonuses are slightly smaller than some of the competition but the rollover is small right now it’s x3 for sports betting compared to other places which go from x10 to x20 the online casino play through for the bonuses is also pretty reasonable and regular players wont come across this as an issue.
What we don’t like
One of the biggest gripe’s i have with bovada is the late posting of lines, sometimes i like to post my bets first thing in the morning and forget about it, the counter for this is the easy to use mobile site so i can now place my bets wherever i am even still its good to get a comparison on the lines with other bookies before i choose who to wager with.
Less than favorable odds for the favorite, you will usually find odds on the leading teams are less than favorable, however less than favorite odds and late lines are for a reason!, here they offer something different.. An underdogs paradise.. that’s right betting against the spread you will nearly always get the best odds in the business, of course not all the favorites are bad just most occasions i save this book when I want to take the total or the dog.
Ease of depositing funds
These guys make it easy! Visa and Mastercard are accepted however credit card payments are inclusive of a 4.9% fee, other methods include Cash Transfers, Check, Bank Wire transfers if in doubt just speak with one of the live chat support representatives personally we have found everything to go smooth on this side .
Cash out methods
Payouts? These guys do make it easy for their players who want to take payouts and fast and by fast we mean fast! payments are processed immediately.
The options available are the newly added bitcoin method, which works anonmously 100% secure with no fees and few limits, it’s also the fastest, also as per usual there is the pay2card option which credits your debit or credit card, cash transfers via money transfers, bank wire which works best for large winnings “though bitcoin is the best fastest option” and Check which can be mailed by regular or fast courier.
For those of you that like options… Then you have come to the right place Every game for every sport in every country across the globe, you want it? you got it.. from Euro Soccer leagues to Basketball in Russia this sportsbook has it all, though the bread and butter of this bookie is American big league sports, NFL, College football and hoops, NHL, MLB, MLS it’s all here.
Combine that with a top rated online casino laden with table games hundreds of 3d slots and one of the biggest Poker tournaments out there, Bovada really does cover every angle for every person out there.. if you live in the USA or Canada that is, unfortunately this brand is USA only, a real shame as it really is one of the best brands around in the world. they were one of the pioneers of sports betting and led the way on how to run an online bookies.
Again Bovada comes up trumps by offering the simplest ways to wager, for the old school players especially those looking for pro betting lines and complex betting strategies it’s as simple as a Telephone call Lines are always open even on the big game days your call is answered quickly.
