Bodog has been running a sports betting operation offline even before it went online and has built a reputation as the world’s largest and most reliable provider of sports and racing betting.
When they went online in 1994, their primary goal was to maintain the values they had been successful with before and they therefore wanted to create an online operation that at least had the same standard of security and fairness as the live operation they already had.
Certainly, they could not afford to offer something that was worth less than what their players were used to and could expect from them.
Also due to the fact that they are very well known and have thousands upon thousands of players (in one word: business is booming for them), they can afford to offer their players the best betting odds and lines, as well as the best signup bonuses. Both in their online poker room and in their casino.
To play in the casino you need a Bodog account (Bodog changed its name to New Bodog in August 2007 and later to Bodog Poker. The reason was a lawsuit because of an alleged patent infringement in the United States). However, if you are a poker player and already have an account at Bodog Poker, you don’t need to worry about this – you can use the same account for the casino. Just go to their “Casino” section and continue by either trying the non-downloadable version or downloading their casino client. The non-downloadable version also looks extremely good. You can play for real money or play for play money and you will hardly notice that you have just played a watered down version of the real deal.
However, if you want the full gaming experience, download their software. There are instructions explained point by point, making it easy for anyone to install the program, even for those not so familiar with computers.
The software looks amazingly good (I have a weakness for the simplicity of the Bodog style and functionality, but this one is really a visual delight). It works even better now. It’s fast, accurate and has all the information you need to make your gaming experience as enjoyable as possible. Everything is displayed in the right places. For your enhanced gaming experience, Bodog Casino offers an in-game cashier and a player feedback system. You will be able to tell them what you think of their operation. At the same time, they help them to improve certain aspects of their client.
Once inside, there are no less than 13 table games including Roulette, Craps, Blackjack, Caribbean Stud, Baccarat and several others. Your choice of slots is, of course, huge, and there is video poker as well.
