The Bodog company has about 20 years of experience in gaming industry, offering its services in casino, sports betting and poker. Bodog is a powerful legitimate brand with the main market lying in Canada, Bovada – in the US. Bodog has the best online poker lineups. The company makes successful investments in attracting new recreational players.
The room ranks third among all of the online poker brands and boasts huge daily traffic within its products and services. The games are played in USD and the peak times fall on evenings EST. The regs/recreational players ratio dates back to the online poker of good old 2000s, and the distinctiveness of the game to a large reminds of live poker games. There is no problem finding 4 NL1k tables on a weekend with at most 1 more regular player.
In the Bodog client, there is no option to select tables, there is also no list of tables, but only the choice of limit and table type. Seating is randomly at any table, including HU tables. The main action happens at the mid-stakes NLHE. Peak time is going a lot of tables at every stake, from nl\plo5 up to nl\plo2к.
Bodog also holds JackPot SNG, stakes from $2 and up to $53. Rake is 7% on all limits.
HU games are popular either, you can get action at all of the stakes up to a maximum, which is NL500 for Heads Up. The room offers great action in unpopular kinds of poker, such as FL Holdem, HU, and SNG 6-max, which is hard to find in our days.
Bodog owns rather specific software. The lobby and tables have little difference from any other poker-room, but there's a limitation of 4 cash-tables simultaneously observed or played. This is the way the room chose to hedge itself from the regulars stranglehold. Apart from 4 cash-tables, you can open up to 4 SNG tables or an infinite number of МТТs.
The "buy more chips" button serves as an auto-rebuy. The table disappears from the lobby as soon as it's full, so there are no wait-lists that have a positive effect on the room's ecosystem.
Since all games are anonymous, classic trackers and converters are not supported. Nevertheless, we offer a hand converter for our players, so they can easily use a HUD during their game.

Games at Bodog say it all. You can hardly find lineups such as Bodog's in any room nowadays in 2015.
