Review By Donald Porter

Bovada are a highly reputable US facing betting site. They have some of the best bonuses for new players and offer excellent promotions for football, basketball and baseball.

Their betting limits are a little lower than other sites in the US market but their cashout times smoke the competition. All in all, Bovada are my favorite US friendly sportsbook and my top rated book on this site.

Bovada may be a relatively new name in the world of online sportsbooks, but its parent company, Bodog, has been around for years and has a solid reputation for honesty and integrity. The Bovada site made its debut late in 2011 after the Bodog brand decided to leave the US market. It is mainly for U.S. players, although U.S. residents of Maryland and Washington are prohibited from joining. International bettors may also play.

When choosing an online sportsbook, there are several different factors to look at, including bonuses, financial stability, betting options, deposit/withdraw options, and ease of use, with financial stability at the top of the list. All of the bonuses or betting options in the world aren’t going to make any difference if you cannot get paid. Luckily Bovada is known to be extremely reliable in the payout department. Other books may be faster with payouts, but few can match their reliability.

Having a bettor-friendly platform was always a strength of Bodog and it has carried over to their new US facing arm, which uses the same software. The site is extremely easy to navigate around and help is always just a click away. The site is clean, fast, and has a solid track record for being accessible. They also boast one of the top mobile offerings with their entire sportsbook compatible with iPhone, Android and the majority of other smartphones. For those who play slots or blackjack, they also released one of the first mobile casinos for USA players in 2013.
