Back in July, Bodog poker released a statement that it was going to withdraw from the US, and up until recently, Bodog Poker will be no more, but it will now be rebranded as Bovada Poker. While Bodog will no longer be available, the new Bovada Poker will prove to be pretty much the same thing with a few changes.
Bodug Under a New Skin
Bodog announced that the US residents will no longer be able to access the Bodog.eu site, or any other Bodog websites as it is now rebranded as Bovada. The accounts for the already existing members however will be transferred on to the new site, where players will be able to log in using their usernames and passwords from the original Bodog site. Their funds will also be transferred to the new site, so there’s nothing to worry about. Well, maybe except for…
One of the biggest changes is the fact that the site will now only be catering to players from within the confines of US soil. This is a huge disappointment for those who moved to other places and non US players as the Rest of the World (ROW) players will no longer be allowed to play in the same community. So if you are out of the US and are looking forward to registering at the new site, then you had better not bother.
Benefits to it
Bovada poker will still be operated by the same licensee that took care of Bodog, Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (MMGG) and will still be on the same network. Also, it has been said that the poker traffic should be unaffected by the change by a serious degree. The rebranding of Bodog Poker to Bovada is said to have a number of benefits, one benefit being the fact that more players will be able to take part in the poker network. The result of having an increase on the number of players playing on the site and on the network will, without a doubt, make things a lot more interesting.
US poker players who are looking forward on playing at the new site will only need to download the game client from the new site to start playing. They can move on forward from where they were when it was still Bodog as their accounts, funds, usernames, and passwords will be unchanged and will be transferred on to the new site – Bovada.
