Originally a spin-off of the Bodog gaming brand, Bovada Sportsbook – its name a portmanteau of Bodog and Nevada we believe – is now independently owned and operated by the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group. The site exclusively serves the North American market, so from its use of USD as the primary transaction currency of its player accounts (it does directly accept Bitcoin too it’s interesting to note) to the core categories offered in its online sportsbook it should be clear if you should initially consider being buddies with Bovada to meet your needs.

Layout & Usability
The Bovada site is a multiverse of betting entertainment, but just a click of its neat main menu helps you quickly focus in on its Sports (or Horses) sites to serve up your sporting options. The immediate impression whether you plump for the Sportsbook or Racebook is of a very clean and modern layout that’s both easy on the eye and intuitive to navigate through whether you access Bovada from a desktop or mobile browser.
A convenient submenu system allows simple selection of sports categories that cover the usual suspects for North American sports fans, plus a wider spectrum of options that brings much deeper coverage of the world of sport than we’ve seen at many of Bovada’s immediate competitors in the American market. Curious to dabble in Gaelic sports, e-sports or volleyball? Bovada Sports can happily oblige.
Bovada Sports is also worthy of praise in comparison to rivals such as BetOnline and 5Dimes by virtue of its smarter bet selection and placement functionality. It follows the example of leading European operators with very intuitive clicking of advertised odds to effortlessly compile a virtual, pop-up Bet Slip which can then be easily edited before finally placing your approved wagers.
It’s very quick to use and makes the whole experience significantly more fun than a lot of its main competitors. In-play betting is also well handled, and features good signalling of price changes to alert you to movements in markets that might suddenly get your juices flowing.
Mobile & Tablet
Bovada is easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
Bovada offers a huge range of deposit and withdrawal options.
Bovada offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. Bet365 uses Chat, Email, Web Message, Phone and Post.
Bovada Sports is undoubtedly one of the better online sportsbooks that caters for North American players. The attention to good design and intuitive user controls makes bet selection, bet slip editing and bet placement pretty much effortless, and really puts some clear water between it and its main rivals. The ability to enjoy Bovada’s other betting entertainments with the single player account is the cherry on the top, so if you’re resident in North American and looking for some online wagering fun, you owe it to yourself to take Bovada Sports for a little test drive.
