Bovada are a recognisable name in the sports betting business, but it’s perhaps likely you’ve yet to play with them.
They’ve slowly started to develop their reputation as one of the best sportsbooks in Canada and are welcoming more and more players by the day.
We thought it was about time we put the brand to the test and let our experts explore every avenue of Bovada from their offers to gameplay, customer service and more…
With the brand becoming a real popular brand in recent times, we thought we’d see what all the fuss was about. And we certainly weren’t let down.
Below you’ll find all our thoughts on Bovada, and further details on exactly why you should and shouldn’t play with them.
One big reason to play with the brand is the quite brilliant Bovada welcome bonus which gives new players up to $250 extra in bankroll!
All you need to do is make a deposit and you’ll receive a 50% match bonus added to your account up to $250.
That means if you sign-up to a Bovada account and make a deposit of $500 you’ll receive $250 bringing your bankroll to a whopping $750.
Make a deposit of $100 and you’ll enjoy an extra $50, taking your bankroll to $150. What’s also brilliant about this offer is the rewagering requirement is only 5x which is much smaller than other brands, which can often be 10x or even 20x!
Bovada have a large range of offers available, with a Bitcoin welcome bonus as well as the one featured above.
This is offered on your first deposit using Bitcoin and can be enjoyed using the code ‘BVSBITCOIN50’. Like the other welcome bonus, it’s a 50% match, but on this occasion up to $500! That means if you deposit $1,000 you’ll have a bankroll of $1,500. Similarly there are 5x rollover requirements with this offer too.
As well as welcome bonuses there are regular offers for existing customers, including a 5% rebate on horse racing every week and up to $100 in free bets for recommending a friend to Bovada.
That’s on top of many more weekly specials, many of which are highlighted on the homepage as well as in the Bonus section of their site.
If you’re looking for a site full of offers and odds them Bovada is certainly worth a try. Whether you’re completely new to betting or an experienced punter you’ll find absolutely no problems navigating through the site, with all sports and selections clearly marked and ease of access through to your betslip in order to place your bets.
Depositing is simple as is claiming bonuses, and it’s rare the site doesn’t have the market you’re looking for.
One area you might be unhappy with, particularly if you’re a high roller. The maximum bet is $5,000 on NFL markets and just $1,000 on others although naturally that doesn’t affect the majority of punters.
The markets are extensive, the odds offer good value and the site itself is completely safe and secure. It’s certainly a thumbs up overall from us!
Our Verdict: 8/10
The mobile app is also worth a try, making Bovada the perfect site to play on-the-go as well as at home on your PC.
It’s fully operable with iOS and Android browsers, although without the latest updates to your phone it can operate a little more slowly.
In terms of the offers, odds and selection of markets everything is available and navigation is just as simple via smartphone as it is desktop.
With an extensive FAQs section is likely you’d never really need to get in touch with the brand directly. They have pretty much every question answered within there. However, if you would like to speak to someone directly that is also possible.
This can be done via live chat, email or telephone 24 hours per day.
As you’d expect, both Visa and MasterCard are available to deposit and withdraw, with a minimum withdrawal of $50 for these and minimum deposit of $10.
Bitcoin is also an option as well as a number of other methods. However, Bovada have yet to allow eWallets as a payment method.
