About Bovada Online Sportsbook

Bodog sportsbook was one of the most active online, and one of the locations most favored by US online gamblers. But thanks to bureaucratic posturing, they had to close their doors to US players. However, always known for providing competent and responsive customer service, and placing its players first, Bodog launched a sportsbook in a jurisdiction which allowed US players and opened their doors as the Bovada Sportsbook.

The same legendary Bodog customer service, same favorable odds, and the same trustworthy payout system is in place, with the new Bovada name. Offering an attractive 50% bonus on your initial deposit up to $250 for 2018, and extras such as your choice of American Odds, Fractional Odds or Decimal Odds, Bovada has put in a lot of effort to stand out to US bettors. And all standard bets are available as well as Sweetheart Teasers, Cross-Sport Teasers, If bets, Reverses, and Round Robins.

Bovada Sportsbook Sign-up Bonus

As mentioned above, Bovada offers a 50% Free Bet bonus on your initial deposit up to $250. Once your initial deposit is processed, your free bonus bet will be available within 30 minutes. To use your Free Sports Bet, go to your My Account tab, and ensure that the bonus is active. Add your qualifying bet to your Bet Slip just as you would a regular bet, review your bet, check the open box for Free Bet, click Place Bet, and you are playing with free house money. You can place any wager on any sport, with any odds, but you have 30 days from your initial deposit to take advantage of this free bet before it expires.

Bovada Sportsbook Bonus Code

No special bonus code is needed.

Throughout the year, Bovada will offer a wide variety of sports-specific and seasonal bonuses and promotions.

Bovada Sportsbook Promotions

Like their big brother Bodog, Bovada will feature seasonal promotions for a wide variety of the sports events found in their betting lines. Often the promotion begins at the beginning of the season and builds each week, leading up to a big event or bonus during playoffs, and it is always best to check out their promotions at the beginning of any season or before playoff events.

Since the mobile app is web-based, there is no need for an additional download, and security features carry over to mobile devices.
