Bodog has been running an online sportsbook and casino for many years. Bodog Poker began operating in 2004. They are growing very fast and recent figures have seen 18,000 players online during peak hours.
The software that Bodog uses for its client is very slick, lightweight, and attractive. There are not as many features as some other poker rooms, but everything that you need is there. One nice feature of Bodog is their multi-table view, which lets you view, and play, up to 3 tables at once in the same window. The software gives players a time limit for decisions on their turn. These things keep games moving quickly and smoothly.
Other nice features include a detailed hand history, with a nice summary of every hand you’ve played; and a display which shows you what’s the best hand you have at each stage of the betting. For example, if you’re holding a pair of queens pre-flop, the display will show ‘Pair, Queens’.
Bodog offers a 10% sign up bonus, up to a $1000 maximum. Players can earn loyalty points which allow them entry to special tournaments, and occasionally can exchange points for real cash. There is also a ‘Tournament Leaderboard’ promotion where players who have a good playing record on multi-tables for the week, month, or year are awarded special prizes.
Bodog is well respected in the industry for having very fast and effective support. Support is offered via email and phone.
