Bodog is notorious for juicy and loose games, specifically low-stakes N-Limit Hold’em.  They also provide sportsbetting services and casino games.

They DO accept US players, with a signup bonus of 110% matched (min. deposit $20).  110% is somewhat unprecedented and very encouraging.  The banking options are very friendly for US players.  They are among the poker leaders for banking ease and customer service.

There are many tournaments at Bodog, including a weekly $100k tournament and >$1M each month.  There are also the standards of freeroll, sit and go, and scheduled multi-table tournaments.  They of course offer a range of land-based tournaments as well.  Something else rather unique to Bodog is their “beginner tournaments”, where payouts reach further down through the finishing ranks than what is usually seen.  Up to 50% from the top, which is unheard of in tournaments where usually only the very top players receive the bulk of the payout.  This is a good way for total beginners to get some encouragement in an environment that is likey to be “shark-free”.

Bodog software is fairly efficient, and runs pretty fast.  There are no avatars like you may see at other poker rooms, the felt color of the table is customizable.  You can use a software known as PokerTracker, to grab hand histories if you know how to make use of it.

Bodog is a pretty big and considering that it doesn’t specialize in poker there is actually a fairly large number of players visitting from the other avenues (sportsbetting and casinos) that provide for some good action.
