Online Poker

Bovada online poker has a very interesting history. Launched in 2011, the site took over the database of U.S. players registered on Bodog Poker due to Bodog Poker´s (then) owners wanting to distance themselves from the U.S. market. Bovada plays online poker remained in the Bodog Poker Network and grew to be the #1 U.S.-facing poker site in the post-Black Friday era. In August 2016, Bovada announced it was closing its online poker operations, and its players were encouraged to join the newly-established Ignition Poker – a site that also shared its player pool with the Bodog Poker Network (which has since been renamed the Pai Wong Luo Network). Bovada continued to operate as an online casino and sports betting site. However, in August 2017, Bovada relaunched its online poker operations. No official reason was given for the reincarnation of Bovada play online poker; although it was speculated by industry observers that Bovada´s casino customers and sports bettors had been requesting online poker, and site agreed. Bovada plays online poker is now available for online poker players in most U.S. states, Mexico and Brazil.
