Bovada Poker, the US-friendly poker site of the Bodog Network, offers unmatched tournaments, cash games, and more for all types of players.


Bodog Poker Network


The Bodog Poker Network consits of three online poker sites.  Those three online poker sites are Bovada, Bodog, and Bodog88.  Professional Rakeback works with two of those online poker rooms, Bovada, and Bodog.   (Editor's Note:  The Bodog Poker Network was sold and rebranded the Pai Wang Luo Poker Network)

Bovada USA Poker Site

America: Bovada offers its players one of the best experiences going today - especially for US online poker players. Consistently rated #1 among US-facing poker rooms in cash game traffic and multi-table tournament options, Bovada also gives its players efficient and timely payouts as evidenced in our own Monthly US Poker Site Payouts Cashout Report.  Bovada only offers its services to American poker players.  If you would like to learn more we have provided an extraordinarily detailed review that of all Bovada bonus, Bovada promotions, tournaments, cash games, and more in our Professional Rakeback Bovada Review. Bovada is an especially good choice for those players who like to grind live poker, as Bovada offers its full suit of cash games, up to 30/60 fixed limit and $2,000 buyin NLHE and PLO, via the upgraded mobile poker client.  (Editor's Note: Bovada sold it's assets to Ignition Poker who still offers the same great games to American players) (Editor's Second Note: Bovada once again reopened poker to Americans in 2017, and Ignition Casino's poker room now allows Australian players).

Bodog Canada Poker Site

Canada: Professional Rakeback also recommends Bodog Poker to both our professional online grinders and our recreational weekend warriors. is the part of the Bodog Poker Network which services online poker players in Canada.  Bodog  Canada offers the softest competition of any internet poker sites avaailable for poker in Canada.  It offers the same games and player pool that players USA poker players enjoy on Bovada, as they share all games.  The Bodog Canada poker cashier of course is separate from that of Bovada and does not intermingle funds as well as offers different options for online poker Canada players such as Interac deposits, allowing you to deposit directly from your bank account and making for very easy poker deposits!  Heck, even Toronto poker players play on Bodog, and we all know what an unruly bunch they are! *wink*  For much more detailed information about this Canadian poker sites check out our Professional Rakeback Bodog Review.  Live grinders in Canadian casinos can also multi-table now thanks to the mobile poker client which offers all of Bodog's games via any Android, iPhone, iOS compatible smartphone or tablet.

Bodog88 Asian Poker Site

Asia: Lastly there is Bodog88.  This part of the Bodog Poker Network services two countries in Asia, namely China and Vietnam.  Bodog88 poker also shares its online poker games with Bodog and Bovada in full.  It also shares all of its sit and goes as well as all of its multi table online tournaments.  This part of the network is where a tremendous amount of poker newbie recreational players, sometimes known as fish, are recruited from.  The Asian poker contingent of the network is a large part of its success and growth over the last three years.  The website is only in Mandarin however, and we can not read that language.  Consequently and unfortunately Professional Rakeback does not offer this Asian poker site at this time.


The Bodog Brand:

The name Bodog is known around the world.  Bodog is a twenty year old, multi billion dollar online company.  It began as a sports book which became so successful that they launched an online casino.  The online casino thrived and in response to market demands, the Bodog Poker Room was opened some years later.  Bodog has further branded itself with numerous products including its various regional, continental, and world wide sportsbook, casino, racebook, television, websites, music lable and even Bodog coffee!  Bodog Brand is active in North America, Europe and Asia via Bodog, Bovada, Bodog88, BodogEurope, and BodogUK.  Its founder, playboy Calvin Ayre, is in the Forbes 1000... yup, he's a billionaire and runs a world class company that you can feel safe playing at!
