Online Poker? Bovada is Back
Online sports-betting and casino site Bovada.lv added a poker room to its menu of services in August 2017. One year prior, operating on Bodog Network, the company discontinued its poker offering. But the poker room is back in full action on the PaiWangLuo Network. U.S. players can once again, enjoy the same online cards games they once had access to since PaiWangLuo purchased the poker platform of the Bodog Network. Bovada's casino and sports poker room will display outstanding quality across the entire PaiWangLuo Network, which has been the largest online poker destination in the U.S. Another operator on the same network, Ignition Poker, recently started accepting Australians, which is expected to have a similar beneficial effect on the size of the network. Bovada.lv biggest market is the United States, with the exception of Delaware, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, and New York. Bovada also added several Latin American countries to its list in February 2017, so now people from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela can sign up for accounts too. Bovada has already been serving these locations for sports and casino but now, for the first time is offering poker to these locations. Canadians can play in the same games as those at Bovada, but they must register their accounts through Bodog, even though it shares the PWL poker interface. Players from Australia and the USA can access the network via Ignition Casino's poker site. The poker that Bovada offers now is very similar to what they offered previously with the red and black pattern, with the exception of changes that have taken place on the PaiWangLuo Network, like the Quick Seat interface. Cash tables run from $0.02/$0.05 up to $10/$20 in the big-bet games: NLHE, PLO, and PLO/8. For limit action, you can participate in Hold'em and Omaha/8 at blind levels from $0.05/$0.10 to $30/$60. Zone Poker is PWL's take on fast-fold poker where anyone who folds immediately receives a new starting hand at a new table. Zone pools are listed from $0.02/$0.05 to $1/$2 in Hold'em, and there's PLO and PLO/8 Zone for micro-stakes. SNGs exist from $1 + $0.05 up through $200 + $14. There are plenty of multi-table events too, which guarantee $1.5 million per week. As a promotional offering, Bovada is giving away a 100% poker bonus up to a maximum of $500 on first deposits. The bonus is worth 30% Bovada rakeback on sit-n-goes and tournaments while delivering a bit less value in ring games. Players can earn bonus payouts too, which are based on points levels achieved within the first 30 days after a player deposits. The first few bonus sections offer a considerable higher value than the 30% cashback offered by the entire $500 maximum bonus. In addition to the poker promotion, there are also specials for casino gamers and sports fans. The casino has hundreds of games and three bonuses equaling $3,000. In the sportsbook, new players receive a 100% up to $250 bonus. Users of Bitcoin should expect $450 and $500. You can play from either a Mac or PC because there are download packages for both types. The system is also accessible from your mobile device.
