Full Review

Bodog Poker is one of the edgier online poker rooms with aggressive marketing, a young pro team that includes Evelyn Ng and Tatjana Pasalic and a "high roller" theme.

Founded in 1994 by Calvin Ayre, the Bodog brand has been through a number of changes over the years and, at one time, had a music label and a mixed martial arts promotion, although online gambling was always the primary business.

In 2008 Bodog changed its business model and decided to offer its brand to licensees around the world.

Bodog’s main licensee is the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group, which runs Bodog.com, offering online gambling services in the U.S. while Bodog Europe operates Bodog.co.uk in Europe and Bodog.ca in Canada. Haydock Sports runs Bodog88.com, servicing Asia.

Bodog.com is still one of the biggest online poker rooms in the world and thanks to a popular sportsbook it’s home to some of the worst poker players on the internet.

The software is intuitive, eye-pleasing, secure and most importantly fast. Unlike some rooms, Bodog Poker also offers the full assortment of poker variations with Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and even Five-Stud available.

Overall players looking for loose games, good software and a fresh attitude will likely be right at home on Bodog Poker.

Bodog Poker offers a loyalty system allowing all new players to start with 50 points. The points can be used in tournaments with real cash prizes.

Tournaments and Freerolls

Bodog Poker hosts a ton of tournaments every day with buy-ins ranging from $1 all the way up to several hundred dollars. For the most part tournaments are busy, fast and offer good structures. As usual, players in the low buy-in tournaments are quite bad while the bigger tournaments offer some stronger competition.

Bodog Poker is most famous for its $162 buy-in, $100,000 guaranteed tournament - an event praised for its good structure. Other tournaments where players can win big for small buy-ins are the World Series of Poker qualifiers.

Bodog Poker offers plenty of free or almost-free tournaments also. The freerolls are mostly large multi-table No-Limit Hold'em tournaments and feature, as expected, exceptionally loose play.

Every day Bodog Poker runs $1,500 in guaranteed freerolls as an easy way to build your bankroll from scratch and they are immensely popular. There are also plenty of tournaments that can be entered using Bodog Poker Player Points

Multi-table and sit-and-go tournaments entered with points usually pay out in tournament tokens or points

Software and Graphics

Bodog Poker offers a very competent poker client with a slick dark theme that caters to the high-stakes lifestyle.

Although most online poker rooms still offer at least one “classic” looking table option, Bodog Poker has moved on with its futuristic floating design. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny it’s very functional.

Players have complete control of the felt color on the tables and can use a slider to customize their playing experience.

Multi-tablers are in luck as the client supports four tables simultaneously and three in its unique picture-in-picture view. It’s fast and easy to tab between different tables.

The lobby itself has changed recently to give players numerous options for selecting their favorite games. Once you've set up your filters you'll only see the games you'd actually want to play.

Overall the software is solid and an upgrade when compared to many of the generic skins on the large poker networks. For a direct and free Bodog Poker download, click the download link above.

Soft Competition

The traffic is at its greatest at the lower stakes and the games vary from standard to very loose, frequently with a viewed-flop percentage reaching upwards of 50%-60%. This translates to juicy and loose games for the small-stakes player. In addition, you can normally find quite profitable No-Limit Hold'em games up to the $5/$10 limits.
