Bovada Casino

Bovada’s mobile casino (now available at is apparently featuring the ’wares of just one game studio, Betsoft — one of our favourites.

There was a scuff with the US Feds that precipitated its closure recently, as well as its affiliate, Bodog Casino, both of which were redirected to the .lv address above (Latvia, in case you were wondering what country that is).

Alive and Well

There is no need to be concerned that perhaps Bovada is transmitting from a rogue Eastern European nation, since Latvia is a rather progressive and modern country. There is no mention of any trouble with the law on its News page. Let’s just give the benefit of the doubt, until facts emerge.

Until then, Bovada is a fully-functioning, and quite advanced Betsoft-powered mobile casino. You can play the full range of games regardless of which mobile system you are using. Click here to check out another splendid Betsoft powered casino.

There appear to be just five mobile video slots, and, two table games (Blackjack and European Roulette). The truth is, Bovada may be more well-known and more able as a provider of these sorts of entertainment:

  • Sportsbook
  • PC Poker
  • Online Horse Betting
  • PC Casino

Big Promotions

As far as the welcoming benefits and bonuses go, it’s something that makes up somewhat for the severe lack of game selection (both in terms of number of titles as well as diversity of game suppliers) — but we all must wonder, what good is receiving up to £3,000 in cash-match money if there just aren’t enough games to hold our attention too long?

On the brighter side of things, we if think of ‘mobile’ devices as primarily tablet computers (and there are good reasons to do) then the entire Bovada menu is open to us — barring any disclaimers you may throw up on certain pages that claim that your mobile Web browser may not display all features of the site.

Truth is, the advent of HMTL5 (and, by the way, most game companies are switching over to this, the Web’s newest standard) will make it irrelevant whether you are on a mobile or desktop machine.

In about a year, they predict, we’ll see laptops, desktop and even phones decline as the tablet computer takes the position (in society, as well as contemporary history) as the most preferred device.

So, that means that we could theoretically enjoy all of Bovada’s wide online offerings from our tablet or phablet (bigger phone).

The Banking

One thing that is not ideal about Bovada is that it does not give us a Banking page that is easy to find, nor, are the various deposit methods listed or even pictured (logos at the bottom, in the customary way).

It seems that banking options are pretty well hidden inside the registration and member-login paces. If we did not know better, then that would seem odd.

But Bovada is recognized as a major player. We’re inclined to grant Bovada’s mobile casino the benefit of the doubt, in terms of coming, inevitable improvements to game selection and overall transparency.
