Bodog Poker Review
Bodog - home of the bottomless deposit bonus! Bodog are one of the internet's bigger sportsbooks, and like everyone else, they have opened a poker room. They are also home to the 2006 WSOP champion Jamie Gold.
Overall, Bodog is a great poker room and I see it growing quickly with the combination of getting players from their sportsbook and casino and their great software and customer service. We recommend it as one our top recommendations.
The Bodog software is generally above average. It runs quickly and smoothly. It looks very good and the avatars are pretty sweet. Multitabling is very easy, and the blinds go up slowly in SNGs (both of these favour the better players). On the down side, it is difficult to keep track of how long to go on each blind level in a SNG - you know it's pretty good software when that's one of my major gripes.
The players aren't as soft in general as most sportsbook rooms because the quality of the software has attracted quite a few sharks. Still, there's always the usual pack of maniacs and idiots to be found.
Customer support is very quick - I typically have answers to my questions in 15 minutes or half an hour. Assistance may be acquired via e-mail or 24/7 telephone support. Most questions can be answered by reviewing the Help page and/or Poker Site Map provided on the Bodog Poker web site.
