What happened to Bodog88?
Bodog88 left some Asian countries more than six years ago, but this time the room, not only changed the rules but was shut down by the network. In late September, players began complaining on forums that they were unable to access the site or log into their accounts.
An explanation was subsequently received from a network representative:
"It is with regret that we have to inform you that, as of 28 September 2020, Bodog Asia and Bodog India have ceased business operations. Our clients have told us that they decided to exit the market out of respect for local restrictions, and in order to keep their players safe."
Players must withdraw all money before October 31. Bodog has promised to process all transactions before the beginning of November.
Who will benefit from the closure of the room?
We can only guess at the reasons that led to the closure of Bodog88 and Bodog India. Nothing has changed in terms of regulation. They operated for many years on gray markets and continue to do so in other countries. It is not clear why they suddenly decided to go by the book.
Either way, it's interesting to analyze where the players from the closed skins will go:
Other major local operators like GGNetwork and club-based apps will benefit the most from the closure of Bodog's Asian rooms'.
It's not clear how much traffic both sites boasted, but even if the figure was not impressive, several poker fans used to play NL/PLO2k there and are now forced to look for a new home.
Hence, GGPoker, Chinese mobile apps, and PPPoker/Upoker clubs will experience a traffic boost soon.
