Bovada is basically Bodog, actually no, it is Bodog, just with a different name. Everything is the same, the software, and even the players - yes, traffic is shared with Bodog too. Bovada offers a decent bonus, although it is admittedly hard to clear the whole thing unless you are a full time grinder. The software is where a lot of people seem to find the most problems. Forced anonymous tables, no hand histories, no Poker Tracker/Hold'em Manager, only 4 cash tables at once are just a few of the issues we have found. Not everyone finds these to be a big issue, especially if you just play for fun, but other than that, the software seems slick and easy to use. The action is decent for a US site, although don't expect PokerStars like traffic. Overall Bovada is a good room for US players and we recommend them if you're looking to play!


It is quite easy to download and install the Bovada Poker software. If you've never had a Bovada account, you can click here and download the Bovada poker room. The Bovada poker download is compatible with Windows operating systems.

The installation process will take roughly five minutes by the time you've installed and created your new account. Once the software is read to go, it should automatically load for you and display the lobby.  The interface of the Bovada is particularly attractive and extremely easy to navigate.

Hold'em and Omaha are by far the most popular games on this site and thanks to the neighboring network; players will not have any problems finding action in cash games or tournaments. .
