Bodog Poker is the poker room of Bodog Entertainment. Founded in 1994 it is one of the earliest online poker rooms and one of the best today. I like the professional look of Bodog Pokerâ€™s lobby. The focus is away from flashy graphics to getting across information relevant to the poker player.
Bodog Poker is powered by software that has been developed in house and is therefore unique. I think after the upgrade in 2006 it has become one of the best in terms of the information and customization it offers the poker player. Player who are interested in the frills can do stuff like change colors and table widths or create their own avatars. But according to me what is offered to the serious player is more amazing. I would like to highlight the QuickSeat feature that quickly leads player to the table that matches with their parameters in terms of stakes, limits and other factors. Sometimes a compromise has to be made between security and convenience. I think Bodog Poker has done a great thing by letting players make the choices rather than imposing conditions on them.
Bodog Poker offers all the standard poker games in the fixed limit, pot limit and no limit versions. I think Bodog Poker understands that the growing popularity of online poker is bringing a lot of first time players into the fold. And the poker room goes out of its way to cater to them by providing detailed rules for each game, details of hand rankings, glossary and poker etiquette. Another feature that I particularly like is that players can get a feel of the games by playing for free.
Every poker room tries to make its sign up bonus different from the others and I must say Bodog Poker has succeeded in this regard. When the player makes his first deposit he is given 10% of the deposit as a cash bonus as the first stage. In the second stage for the next thirty days the player will get $1 for every 10 poker points earned. The amount that the player can earn this way is limited to the lower of his deposit or $500.
In keeping with its reputation Bodog Poker offers a large number of banking options. Also in keeping with its policy of disseminating as much information as possible, the poker room conveys the pros and cons and terms and conditions of each option. But what I like best is that Bodog Poker is concerned about security and has taken all required precautions. First of all it uses SSL encryption and the players browser shows the lock sign when it accesses the poker room. Then it uses a system of firewalls within the site. And finally the information is accessible only to a select senior team on a need to know basis.
Bodog customer support operates round the clock. The efficient and courteous staff attends to queries on opening accounts, depositing and withdrawing funds, games and promotions through telephone or e-mail.
