Though it is one of the bigger online poker sites, Bodog Poker did not get seized by the FBI on Black Friday when the feds took down the four biggest online poker sites, Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, Absolute Poker, and UB.com. The .com domains for all of these websites were seized for a period of time, and have now been returned with the exception that they do not accept US players.
PokerStars redirected their traffic to PokerStars.eu, and Full Tilt Poker has redirected their online poker traffic to FullTiltPoker.co.uk. However, Bodog.com is still Bodog.com.
UPDATE: Bodog has launched Bovada.lv for poker players in the US. Bodog.com is not longer accepting US players.
If you are interested in becoming a new player at Bodog, they have an excellent sign up bonus, as well as an extensive VIP program, and other great promotions.
New depositors will receive a bonus offer worth 110% up to $1,100, and that extra 10%—you get right away. Then earn Bodog Points to advance in the VIP Program and clear your Bodog Poker bonus. And this is all available for US players on the new Bovada site.
If you are a former PokerStars, Absolute Poker, or Full Tilt Poker player and are looking to sign up at Bodog Poker, Bodog still accepts US players (Only at Bovada.lv) and has a great software to offer players, as well as a responsive and well-managed customer service department, complete with telephone number and live person customer service rep—that’s something you never got at PokerStars or Full Tilt.
Bodog prides itself in being a player-oriented poker site with all the bells and whistles of the bigger online poker sites, as well as that something extra.
Another great reason to join Bodog Poker is that there are tons of fish who have found themselves without an online poker room as well, and are joining Bodog right now. You could already be playing with them. Move on from the past, as PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, UB.com, and Absolute Poker are US poker sites no more. Bodog, however, is happily accepting US players as you read this.
