Bodog Casino Review
Bodog Casino is fine. Nice games (200+) from RTG and a cool welcome match bonus, up to €600, are the highlights of the day. Stop, the casino offers good support as well - it’s definitely another highlight. But browsing through the FAQ question by question would be an excellent Buddhist practice. The navigation is delusively simple and clear, but in fact, you have to contact them to find important information.
- Multilingual website (whoof-whoof!);
- 24\7 live chat support available;
- Provides guides for players (guide dogs of Bodogs);
- More than ten years of operation;
- Bitcoin banking options;
- No live dealer games;
- Tricky navigation (a search dog, perhaps?).
Bodog, as a brand, has been around since 1994 and mainly focuses on the Canadian market. Now the old dog learned some new tricks and it features sportsbook, poker, horse racing, and casino platforms. They are licensed by the Antigua and Barbuda Directorate of Offshore Gaming.
The website looks clean and clear, but the impression is deceitful.
The site sometimes takes too long to load the content of the page, especially when there are many games to list. What’s more irritating, is that you can’t get any useful information from them. Like which deposit options they support. Well, there must be some kind of FAQ, right? Sure. But not only each answer is on a separate page, they are also not particularly useful. Q:“How do I make a deposit?”. A: “Click Make a deposit, choose a deposit method and enter the amount”. Holy mother of poop, thank you SO much, that was enlightening.
Banking: Well, first of all, it’s really difficult to find some information on the banking methods at Bodog Casino. Secondly, if you manage to do so, then you must be highly surprised, because the only available methods for withdrawals are Bitcoin, Check by Courier, and bank transfer. Holy turd master, they want you to withdraw money via Check by Courier. We wonder how much time it will take. Moreover, it’s not free. Your second request will be charged €50 fee. Well, the casino appears to provide withdrawals and deposits via cards. As we said, it’s difficult to find some information there - it is scattered among the section. Anyway, the withdrawal request can take up to 48 hours to process.The withdrawal limit depends on the method you choose. For example, it’s €4 000 per 3 days via bank transfers and €3 000 per 5 days via Bitcoin.
Customer Support: Support options are limited to the messages through the website form (email, basically), phone and live 24\7 chat. You may find the latter useful because you won’t be able to find, say, the doggone betting limits and this page is placed in the “Help” section for some reason.
Software and Game Variety
Bodog features games from RTG, Betsoft, Pragmatic Play and a few other. The library is pretty good, with several hundred games to choose from. Overall, the software providers and games are just fine, but no more than that. Take a look at some of the games the casino has:
- Slots: A Night With Cleo, Caesar’s Empire, Mystic Wolf;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Craps;
- Video Poker: Joker Poker, Jacks or Better, Bonus Deuces Wild;
- Specialty Games: Bingo, Keno, Sudoku.
Don’t forget that they have a wide range of sports to bet and even horse racing. We wonder why they have no greyhounds racing, honestly.
Mobile and Live Games
Bodog’s website is mobile-friendly and runs smoothly on any modern device. There’s no app to download and most of the games are available right in your browser.
There are no live games at Bodog casino at the moment. Let’s hope they add them in the future. But they have live sports betting instead!
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Dogus, sorry…. Bonus at Bodog casino, comes as a good old 100% match bonus on your first deposit (up to €600). The amount is cool and the wagering requirements are x25 on deposit and bonus amount.
Other promos change regularly, so be sure to check the promotions page.
There’s also the VIP program called “94 club”, with additional benefits for high-rollers (like exclusive promos, higher bonuses, and invitations to live events all over the globe).
