Bovada Review

$4,250 in Welcome Bonuses


When it comes to the holy online gaming trinity – sports betting, poker and casino games, few brands can match the offer at Bovada. The site encompasses all three major categories, each with a unique slew of offers, bonuses, games and tournaments respectively. Bovada manages to broaden the scope by including horse races atop of its already rich formula. The rest is the usual, high-standard portfolio of secure and fast banking methods, vigilant customer support service and great mobile support. The site is part of Morris Mohawk Gaming and is licensed in Kahnawake. It has been operating since 2011.

Bovada Review

Expansive sports betting experience

The sports department is at the heart of Bovada. I found a huge variety of supported sports and their respective leagues and tournaments, including football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, boxing and many others. Making a ticket is as easy as picking your preferred betting method (parlay, straight bet, future, etc) and choosing your payment method. That’s it. There’s also the option for live betting as well as other customization perks that allow you to track the matches, past history, winning ratio and more. This is all prominently displayed in your bet slip along with detailed information of past bets.

Unmatched casino variety

Bovada Casino is using RTG software which offers an impressive collection of high quality slots, table games, video poker and specialty games that would intrigue even the most uninterested bunch. The biggest hook is the new addition of over 30 3D slots like Sugar Pop, Who Spun It and 2 Million BC which charm players with their amazing graphics and sleek animations, not to mention the added bonuses and jackpots. Whether downloadable or played instantly, the offer of games has enough cash prizes to keep you going for a long time. If you’re a player who wants to chase the big payouts, head over to the progressive section and place a wager on titles like Snow White, Aztec’s Treasure or Mr Vegas.

Poker all around

If card games are your thing then I suggest visiting Bovada’s Poker section for some thrills around the green tables. The site offers Texas Hold’em, Omaha and the Stud variants. The real treat is the tournaments – the variety is great and the prizes huge. Bovada Poker has several weekly and monthly events including Nightly Majors (every night), Turbo tournaments, $100k Gtd (every Sunday), Live tournaments via satellite, Sit & Go and more.

Welcome bonus across all platforms

Bovada Casino offers an enticing welcome bonus package that is split between slots and other casino games. Depending on the bonus code used, you can either get a 100% match bonus on the initial deposits up to $500 redeemable 4 times for playing slots or, get a 100% match bonus on several deposits up to $250 that is also redeemable 4 times but for playing casino games. Make your choice and start spinning the reel or hitting the tables! Loyal players also gather casino points which can be exchanged for cash, mobile bonuses, $100 in bonus chips and more.

Poker players have the option to get a unique 100% bonus up to $1,000 while sports fans can opt in for a range of bonuses including the $250 sports free bet bonus.

Secure, fast and reliable banking

Bovada is also highly regarded for the advanced security and safety transaction policy it maintains. Protected with a 128-bit SSL encryption it is impossible for anyone to gain insight into the player credit card profile or steal money. The casino offers a nice range of secured banking methods like credit cards, pre paid solutions, e-wallets, wire transfer and more.

Going mobile

Bovada does a great job at transferring its online betting, casino and poker activities in a mobile friendly environment. The sports betting section gets its own mobile betting support across all Android and iOS devices, with the same array of options as the desktop site. The same also refers to Bovada Casino and Poker, each with its own slew of games and unique bonus offers for players who want to play on the go. Quick, neat and rather excellent I might add.

Contact customer support any time, 24/7

I contacted the customer support service at Bovada via their official online contact form and got a response fairly quickly (within an hour). You can also use their official email or call them by phone (general support). As already mentioned, they are quite prompt to respond to any queries or issues, though it is a bit unclear why there isn’t a live chat option. Still, the customer support at Bovada is quite helpful so do not hesitate to contact them if you have a problem.


I’ve yet to encounter a site that manages to juggle several distinct online gaming categories and not falter in either one. Bovada’s offer of sports is varied, backed by excellent promotions and betting options. The casino also offers great bonuses and excellent games. As for the poker offer, let’s just say that both poker pros and novices will certainly enjoy their stay. Bovada is a rare and complete package that you shouldn’t miss.
