Bodog is the only remaining sports book with a stand alone network. This is a historical achievement that Bodog can be proud of. Bodog has never been involved with any player or software scandals worth mentioning.

Bodog Statistics

Bodog was however involved in a law suit in August 2007 since a company called 1st Technologysued Bodog by claiming Bodog had stolen a patent. The result was that Bodog lost the law suit and its domain for 1,5 years until they agreed paying a $48 million settlement. In the mean time Bodog was called Bodoglife.com.

CalvinAyre.com is the latest invention by Bodog which is a portal where you can follow news and gossip from the online gaming industry.

In December 2011 Bodog changed its American facing brand to Bovada.lv. Bovada continues to accept American players and share platform with Bodog Poker.3

In October 2012 Bodog.co.uk that hosted the European players decided no longer to accept new poker customers. Bodog.eu had recently shuttered before this event took place and Bodog annouced it would be focusing on the Asian expat market besides its two other brands called Bovada in US and Bodog.ca targeting Canada. The Asian brand is named Bodog88 and does not allowed Europeans.



Bodog have on and off been offering rake back. Rake back never seems to have been an issue on the network.


Bodog does not offer rake back nor do they allow affiliates to promote rake back. Bodog has a VIP program that gives you cash in exchange of player-points.


The Bodog brand is owned by same company as the software provider

2 It is hard to find out who actually owns Bodog. Bodog is divided into 3 divisions: Bodog UK, Bodog EU & lastly Morris Mohawk who deals with the operation that accepts US players. Calvin Ayre who is the founder of Bodog is believed to own a large share of the company. Due to the fact that Bodog accepts bets from US citizens it is not safe for any owner or key personnel to travel in the US.
