Bovada’s Sports, Betting Options & Limits

Turbo tournaments are defined by the fast blinds which increase every two to six minutes. Sunday seems to be the big poker day at Bovada, as this is another big-money tournament which happens at 4pm ET on a Sunday.

You can find out how to do so on the Bovada poker page. You could win up to 1,x your buy-in. I also like that the poker section has additional useful features such as guides on how to play poker, anonymous tables, the ability to chat while you play, the ability to customize your tables by picking your language or your preferred card design, and a mobile poker platform.

As the leading US online sportsbook, I had high expectations when I landed in the Bovada sports lobby. The following is a summary of what I found. The interface is simple, clean, and intuitively easy to understand. You just place your bets and click for instant action. You can get this by downloading it from the site or by scanning the Bovada QR code directly on the site. Esports options include Dota 2, Counter-Strike: You can enjoy Bovada live betting on soccer, tennis, esports, snooker, cricket, and table tennis.

For example, if you bet on soccer, you will be able to place bets on game results, first and second half results, corners, corners in each half, which team will kick off, which team will score next, team totals, and whether or not both teams will score. Why they do this is obvious — high-stakes bettors willing to bet thousands of dollars on a bet tend to be educated or possibly have a winning tip. Also be aware that Bovada. Dual lines, as these are known, are the main gripe Bovada bettors have with this sportsbook.

Better still, there are bonuses for sports bettors, casino players, poker players, and Bitcoin enthusiasts playing any game. Are the bonuses fair, and do they have reasonable terms and conditions? I plan to lay that out for you in detail here. The rollover requirements are 5x on this bonus, which is reasonable. The Bovada poker rooms are well worth a look if you normally enjoy poker. As with many online poker bonuses, this one is released in stages as you accumulate points.

There are no rollover requirements on poker bonus cash. This casino gives you one free deposit via credit or debit card but then charges 5. Avoid these unnecessary fees and try using Bitcoin!

Bovada has even created a detailed Bitcoin guide explaining what it is, how to get it, and how to use it. Ideally, I would like to see a few more altcoins accepted, although Bovada does allow you to withdraw by Bitcoin Cash.

If you choose to withdraw by check, expect your check within 10 days. Note that you will not be able to withdraw by Bitcoin unless you have made at least one deposit via Bitcoin before. Check out the screenshot below for a full overview. So, this is a simple and to-the-point rewards program. It makes it easy to understand and to know where you stand. Email — You can use the contact form on the Bovada. Replies are quick, professional, and to the point. This is how it should be.

However, Bovada has gone to a lot of effort to put together an extensive FAQ section. There are sections for casino games, sports, horses, financials, bonuses, Bitcoin, poker, and general questions. Bovada customer support is great.

However, one is better than none. In general, the customer support here is as it should be. I like that Bovada offers casino games, sports betting, and poker, and I like that it accepts both US players and Bitcoin. I advise you to check it out for yourself. This review was made by: Your email is never published nor shared. Deposit and Withdrawal Fees. My Favorite Find at Bovada. Would I Play at Bovada Casino?

Click to view list. You will lose no matter how good you think you are. I had ace queen up against pocket aces. Only one card that can beat my hand. An ace and guess what comes on river? Yea it does but not at an 80 percent rate. I been heavy favorite like 90 percent to win the hand basically only a 1 outer can beat me and it comes damn near every time. You will not consistently win. Put it to you this way, the last 3 times I had pocket aces I lost to a set of kings. And oh yea majority of the time if you have pocket kings, someone at the table has them aces.

I lost on so so many bad beats. They will screw you to the max. Payout on slots less than 40 percent. If your going to play at bovada, they will play you.

Flush your money down the toilet. By far the most horrible untrustworthy people in the business. After losing seven grand I was told I did not qualify for cash back. Bitcoin is the only way you should cash out imo. Takes less than 48 hours usually. Like the new live dealers for some games. Advice start slow small bets and deposit a large enough amount to cover losses then use bigger bets later when it seems like the tide of losses changes.

I made 2 deposits one day , checked my bank account the next day, they charged me an extra deposit, an trying to get refund of overcharge now, they say it is a pre hold, when I sent them copy of my bank statement showing it is not pending, it has cleared, they still told me to wait 10 days and see if it goes back in my account. You never take insurance on 21, and yet, When I first started to use this site, it seemed about as balanced as casinos.

House has an advantage. Play long enough, and you will always lose. That's how gambling works. It's not meant to be a stable income. But Craps, for instance, 3 loss , 8 , 7 loss , 12 loss , 9, 7 loss , 12 loss. I would be willing to bet that a very small percentage of people actually win any substantial money from playing here. This site chooses who is going to win even before the first card is dealt. As I said, this type of action happens more times than it ever could during live play.

Again, I get it, bad beat right, but the frequency in which this type of play happens is ridiculous. Almost every hand on the river winds up with straight, flush, and full house possibilities.

If you chase your bets, the higher the bet the lower the win percentage. I Cannot not even begin to say how many times I pushed tied with Tried to play another game, an my funds were 0.

Called customer service told me I was shit out of luck. Should of known better. Hopefully nobody else falls for puttin money on it. Don't waste your money here. Do not put money on it. I placed three bets and lost 2 and won the big one of the 3 bets and then they tell me no action, can t grade, the line was off and tell me thisafter the fact the event happens Craziest part they took the money from the 2 other loses real quick though! Site and place straight scam.

Take heed and stay away Luckily my bank looked into it and I will never go back to this site. It is not legit. After we gave them all the proof that it was our credit card they closed our account for having another account we lost access to a couple of years ago. Stay off this site they are scammers! Me and my best friend made bets on the same rounds etc and I bet compared to his They gave me so many BS reason on why he won and why I did and told me intially that I used bonus money to win the bet as opposed to my deposited money.

After agreeing that there is nothing on there site in their "terms and conditions" to support any reason why I could receive my money, I was then told that I needed to submit a document to verify my identity and submit a copy of my bank card and photo ID and within 48 hours I would be contacted and allowed to start the withdrawal process.

These people are so unprofessional and really don't give a damn about customers once you deposit money. When I first setup my account, I didn't deposit any money Now I can't get any answer out of them. Just keep getting, it takes 48 hours when that has been passed for several days at this point.

I would avoid this site if not for any other reason, their customer service sucks. One of the easiest and quickest ways to fund your account is using a Visa credit, debit, or gift card. Should you have any other questions regarding this, you may contact our Customer Service Team at Our Customer Service Team is available at service bovada.

Minimum bank wire transfer amount I have made many cashouts via western union and takes less than 5 days but there is a fee. August 12th, , 7: Your best bet is to cash out for a check. You get one free per month and I requested a withdrawal on Saturday and received my check the following Saturday. I am in the US. August 12th, , 8: How about some love for Bovada's Customer Service.

I love how their emails are very thorough and they don't keep anything away from the consumer. Not only did they address the customer's question, but also pointed out their fine print the fee for additional cashouts with that option in the time frame.
