Bovada was founded in 1994 by Calvin Ayre and is a brand under which many different businesses have been marketed, such as TV and music. However, we are interested in betting and we will of course focus on the online sports book. The company is based in Antigua but licensed in UK and Curacao. The company was like many others mainly focusing on the US market earlier but nowadays, for natural reasons, the main focus is on the European market.

Bovada has always been a heavy marketing and innovative company and the betting element is a solid and trusted bookmaker with a good reputation in the business. Bovada also offers poker and casino where you can use your sports book account. In addition to this, there is also a great section for US Horse racing.

Since Bovada was a big player on the US market for a long time and still accepts US customers, they have a wealth of experience and offers for US sports. 

Bovada offers a wide range of sports but there is no European Horse racing or Greyhounds available.

The common UK based sports as Rugby, Cricket, Snooker and Dart are represented, and of course football is well represented! You can find all the major leagues but the betting options are rather limited. Regular match betting and over/under are the only betting options, which is of course a big minus. There is also no Asian handicap line so there may not be a lot to entice keen football betting fans.

The odds offered by Bovada are about average and they post the lines a bit late in our teams’ opinion. However, you can find attractive offers from time to time, no question of that, you just need to pay attention! Bovada makes no secret that their focus is the small bettor and this means the betting limits are pretty modest with professionals being quickly limited. There is nothing wrong with that as long as Bovada is up front about their methods, which they are.

The only live betting offered is on NBA basketball, which again, may be too limiting for a keen sports betting fan.

The site looks great in our opinion; it has a slick design and is very easy to use. A beginner should have no problem with understanding the site and will be able to place a bet very quickly. There is also a help section which is pretty good and also explains about the deposits and payout methods. Opening an account is very easy and it only takes a few minutes.

Bovada is well known for the articles that they offer on site. The articles are very good but they only cover US sports, which is useful if you are into US based sports but no so relevant if you don’t.

The customer service at Bovada is great. It is possible to reach them through e-mail or by phone and they are very helpful with any queries they have a real good reputation in business.

The payment methods are the usual methods. Credit/debit card, Neteller, Moneybookers, bank transfer and many more. The payouts are very fast and we have never noticed have a problem when it is time to make a withdrawal. In this respect, Bovada is very good.

Bovada always has a lot of different bonus offers so pay attention before you sign up, it can be very profitable! Bovada’s bonuses are usually very easy to claim, which isn’t always the case with other bookmakers…
