What is the PaiWangLuo Network? I’ve never heard of it. -- The PaiWangLuo Network is the new name for the old Bodog Network. It consists of the same poker, casino, and sportsbook products that you might have encountered over the years. The change came about because the network was sold to new owners in February 2017.

I suspect collusion - what should I do? -- This is one of the recurring topics that pops up with regard to almost every poker site every so often. The network’s stance on this was illuminated by a Bodog rep on Twoplustwo several years ago and remains in force today:


The Bodog Poker Network takes collusion very seriously, and to do otherwise would be a big hit to the recreational model that (Bodog has) created. The network has taken huge steps in order to create an atmosphere for recreational players that keep them both happy and safe. In order to keep the games fair and legitimate, Bodog has invested heavily in both security software and security teams. To do otherwise would, at the very least, be a huge mistake. All allegations of collusion are taken seriously by security, and if a player has any worry at all,they should be reporting that to support(emphasis added). Additionally, as has been mentioned, players have the ability to see the hole cards of all hands that were dealt 24 hours after the hand ends. This allows players to go back and look at hands that they may have any concerns about.


What brands make up The PaiWangLuo Network? -- Currently, The PaiWangLuo Network is composed of Ignition, Bodog, Bovada, and Bodog88 brands. Each serves a different segment of the online poker and gaming market:
