Bodog Sports Review
When it comes to online sports betting, Bodog is a household name that stands tall amongst its peers. It's rare for us to shower any one brand with so much praise, but as this sportsbook review will show, we make no secret of our two-thumbs-up endorsement of Bodog when it comes to getting the most bang for your buck.
Bodog Sportsbook Reputation: 5/5
Widely credited for being the first online sportsbook to successfully bridge the gap between sports bettors, poker players and online casino enthusiasts, Bodog also boasts a slew of other mainstream entertainment achievements that range from launching its own record label, BodogMUSIC, to making a huge splash in the MMA world with its own division, BodogFIGHT.
Over 15 years later, the Bodog brand's presence is now being felt across the world, with divisions in North America, Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and soon, South America. Bodog is even on your TV during Premier League soccer matches, after a recent partnership with Fullum Football Club to be the team's official betting partner.
Bodog Sportsbook Bonuses / Value: 4.7/5
Bodog keeps it simple with value added bonus offers that feature some of the lowest rollover rates in the industry. Don’t be fooled by those 100% offers only to find they have a 20x rollover requirement. Bodog’s 100% Free Bet bonus offer, up to $100 and a 3x roll gets our vote as one of the most valuable sportsbook bonuses available today.
Featured live daily at VegasInsider.com as the #1 source for offshore wagering, Bodog is listed right along side the major Las Vegas sportsbooks. Check the lines at powerhouse books like the Las Vegas Hilton or Caesars and you will find that Bodog offers some of the most competitive lines in the industry. And if betting on the play, as-it-happens sounds like fun, BodogLIVE is for you. Think the next play will be a pass or that they may change it up and run the ball, bet on it right there and then. We make no secret of giving Bodog two enthusiastic thumbs up in terms of overall value.
Once the games are over you can queue up the Bodog Poker software and play against WSOP famous pros such as Evelyn Ng and Amanda Musumeci. Or why not wander over to the Bodog Casino which features an ever-expanding variety of traditional table games and slots. The horses are also in full stride at the Bodog Racebook where you can wager on races from over 80 thoroughbred and harness racetracks across North America.
Bodog Sportsbook $$$ / Security: 4.7/5
Bodog's “never-missed-a-payout” claim to fame speaks for itself. And with over 3 million registered players, there is incentive to keep up the good work. As is standard security these days, all data transfers at Bodog are performed using 1024 bit key SSL encryption supplied by internet security giant RSA Laboratories.
Bodog Deposit Options
Funding your account at Bodog is fast, secure and everything you would expect from an online industry giant. They accept all major credit cards, an extensive list of eWallets including Neteller, Click2Pay, Moneybookers and if a person to person transfer is more your cup of tea, that option is also on the menu.
Bodog Withdrawal Options
Making sure players get paid and making sure players get paid quickly are two very different things. Although Bodog ran into problems with slow payouts two years ago, they now promise average payout times of 4 to 7 business days. Recent reports even have players receiving payouts within 48 hours of their request, via mail or check by courier.
Bodog Sportsbook Customer Service: 5/5
In Bodog’s offices all over the world, one motto reigns supreme; “Play Hard and Work Harder”. With employee incentive programs that dwarf industry standards and a state of the art telecommunications system, you can expect top-notch service 24/7 - 365 days a year.

Bodog Sportsbook Software / Website: 4.2/5
The Bodog sportsbook, poker room, and casino are solid products, especially when it comes to user experience and software. Bodog runs its own proprietary sports betting platform, its own Poker network, and also its own casino software, which is a standalone achievement in it of itself. But in this category, we give Bodog.com a bit of tough love. The Bodog brand has become synonymous with terms like "industry leader" "pioneer" and "cutting edge" but in 2013, we feel there's still some room for Bodog to innovate once again.
