Bodog Poker is a sportsbook and casino that has been operating since 1995, with the poker room opening in 2004. The poker site is popular and hasn’t been too affected by Bodog’s courtroom troubles with the domain name. The eccentric founder Calvin Ayre is currently taking auditions for his reality show Sharks and Fools where he is offering $1000 000 contract to play as a poker pro for a year. Watching the audition videos are worth a visit to the site alone.
The bonuses and promotions offered by Bodog Poker are excellent. Bodog Poker offers an instant initial deposit bonus of 10% with a maximum of $1000. They have both WPT and WSOP Qualifier tournaments and Sit and Go’s. Bodog Poker runs a weekly $100000 guaranteed tournament on Sundays.
The games offered are all variations of Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Five-Card Stud. You can also use their sportsbook and casino which has an excellent reputation. There is ring game action for most limits and although it hasn’t the largest flow of player traffic, the tournaments can give you good action also. The competition at Bodog is like fishing in a pond. Even an average player could make money here.
The updated software is fast, offers nice graphics and is actually my favorite site to play on. It also offers some particularly innovative functions, such as a three-in-one mode where three tables can be viewed and played in the same window. The software is stable and updates usually load well.
