BoDogGone – from the U.S.

The news was finally announced yesterday that Bodog will no longer accept players from the United States of America.

We have known for a while that this was going to happen before the end of 2011, and we eagerly waited for the new poker room that would take the Bodog U.S. players to be launched. And so it was launched yesterday – Bovada is officially live.

All existing US players on Bodog poker will now be migrated to the new Bovada poker room, with their player balances intact.

Bovada Poker - the new BodogAll new US players that visit the Bodog site will be sent to this new room too.

An unexpected element of this new arrangement is that no non-US players will be playing at Bovada. So it will be an entirely American poker room.

The new poker room is owned and operated by the people who were operating Bodog’s American facing operation all these years so there should be no real changes or problems with this move. There are still some concerns about recent delays in making cashouts from Bodog but that may just be the usual problems that American players have in transferring funds there days.

The domain name for this new site is bovada.lv instead of the more usual dot com. That presumably is an effort to protect against having the domain name seized by any government entity, as we did see during this past year with other gambling sites.
