Bovada Online Sportsbook is a USA facing sportsbook that first came up in 2011. Over the years, it has managed to establish itself as one of the highest rated sportsbetting sites. This is mainly due to the fact that the company improved its communications and boosted its customer support Bovada is one of the few sportsbook operators to enjoy an extremely low complaint rate. The sportsbook offers over 150 casinos that include baccarat, craps, blackjack, poker, and several other variations. In fact, variety is a key strength of Bovada’s and this has mainly been the result of working with multiple software companies.
As for sportsbetting, you have tennis, basketball, football, soccer, hockey, soccer, UFC, MMA, baseball, cricket, boxing, and golf etc. As for the types of bets, Bovada offers Betting Against the Spread, Money Line, Parlays, Line Betting, Totalizer Betting, Live Betting, Head-to-Head Betting, Combination Bets, Proposition Betting, and Teasers.
Customer service is one of Bovada’s key strengths and that’s something I can vouch for. I was able to contact them via both, phone and email support. They were quite responsive and helpful on both channels. On the whole, it was a satisfactory experience.
Deposits can be made via Master-card, VISA (Credit & Debit), *1. Visa Gift Cards, and *2. Bitcoin. The minimum for card deposits is $20 and the maximum is $1500. With Bitcoin the minimum is $10 and a nice max of $5,000.
As for withdrawals, you can choose between Check by Courier or Bitcoin. However, your deposit method does determine your withdrawal method. For instance, if you made a credit card deposit, you can only withdraw using the check payout option. For deposits made using Bitcoin, withdrawal must also be made using Bitcoin. With Check by Courier your maximum withdrawal amount is $3,000 and a minimum of $100.
With Bitcoin your maximum amount is $9,500; much higher than with Check by Courier and the minimum is much lower; you can request as little as a $10 payout. Bovada has one of the best payment reputations in the industry and you won't see that statement on every sports book review.
*1 If you decide to deposit with a Visa Gift Card, please make sure it is good for International use. You can't use a VGC with domestic use only.
*2 Bitcoin can seem daunting at first, it did for me, but I will tell first hand that it's easy. Just read up on how to use it, in fact Bovada has much information on it. They are actually the ones who got me going with it. I printed out two pages with Bitcoin information and will admit I struggled a bit at first, but after going over it a second time I have concluded it's the fastest and most private method I have ever used. You can get in touch with Bovada or email us and we would be glad to help you out.
