The Good

Bodog Poker is a US-friendly poker room with excellent software and larger than average player base. Enjoying poker action here and benefitting from competitive bonuses guarantees positive player experience. One of the several Bodog-branded entertainment ventures, Bodog.com brings casual players from casino tables and sportsbook to your poker game.

This Bodog Poker review focuses on the many things that make Bodog a fine place to play, and a few things that could be improved. One of the great perks found here is Bodog Signup bonus. Up to $1,000 is issued into a new player’s account, subject to reasonable playthrough requirements. Low stakes no-limit games are plentiful at this card room, and earning player points towards your Bodog bonus is possible even at the micro limit tables.

 

The Bad

This could be the best place to play poker but there just aren’t enough action games, especially at the middle and high stakes. Tournaments with buy-ins above $100 are rare and usually have small fields. Bodog Poker bonus is lucrative enough to attract hundreds of new low-limit Hold’em players every week, but high rollers tend to stay away.

The random number generator (RNG) used by Bodog poker room is somewhat of a dark spot; no information on the encryption used in their software is made available to the public. Many major poker websites make a point of inviting third-party contractors to verify their RNG and then publishing the test results. Bodog has made no such effort. Although standard 128 bit encryption is used on the Bodoglife poker site and the card room is properly licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (which ensures that Bodog is a safe place to gamble), a little more effort to communicate with the players would be nice.

Poker Software

Any positive Bodog review should start with the description of the poker client. The graphics are sleek, the action buttons — just large enough, the spotlight feature makes keeping up with the action an easy task. Software is innovative and many customizations are available, including player avatars, sounds, and even level of detail in the game details panel.

It is easy to find the game you want using filters in the game lobby. Selecting a table from the lobby has its advantages, such as being able to see the current pot size and each player’s stack size at the selected table. You can then get a seat at the table with the highest average pot, or the most players seeing the flop.

Hand histories and player notes are useful tools to improve your poker game; at Bodog Poker keeping up with opponents’ play and your own statistics is made easy. Hand histories are searchable by date and time, game type and hand number. Additionally, your gaming session stats are displayed in the corner of the table. They can provide valuable insight into the quality of poker you are playing and help make necessary adjustments if you happen to have a bad night.

 

One Stop Shop

An additional benefit for all Bodog customers is the ability to use their gambling bankroll for playing poker, casino gaming or making sports bets. For players who use these services on a regular basis, opening a Bodog account eliminates the need to deal with two extra online companies. Basically, it makes your poker experience that much more enjoyable.
