Bovada Poker No Longer Available Post-Sept 30thAugust 11, 2016 11:56 am
This week, Bodog announced that its US-facing poker site, Bovada, had been acquired by online gambling site Ignition Casino, and that it would cease operating under its current name on September 30th. Bovada subsequently sent its customers an email advising them to transfer all their accounts over to the new site by the stated deadline, and allaying any concerns they may have over the new arrangement, an extract from the email explained:
“Because Ignition Casino uses the same platform as Bovada Poker, everything you enjoy such as: anonymous tables, Zone poker, mobile poker and guaranteed tournaments, like the weekly $100K, will be there waiting for you.”
In the meantime, Bovada customers will also still be able to enjoy the site’s other offerings, including its sportbook, racebook, and casino.
Up until now, Bovada/Bodog has been the world’s thirst most popular poker site with around 1,350 cash game players over a 7-day period, behind just PokerStars (13,500) and 888poker (1,800). How the company now losing its Bovada operation will affect its overall traffic standing remains to be seen.
