bovada casino

The Bovada Casino group has been around since 2011, but Bovada Casino is being run without a gambling license since 2018. In the summer of 2018, Bovada voluntarily forfeited its license from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, since a rule change ment that they could only keep the license if they stopped permitting players from the United States.

From a consumer perspective, Bovada Casino is really bad when it comes to transactions. The only accepted deposit methods are VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Bitcoin, and the only withdrawal options are Bitcoin and Curier Check. Depositing with Bitcoin is free, while using the other methods will incur hefty deposit fee (except for one fee-free deposit every 90 days). Withdrawing through Courier Check is free, but the minimum amount is $100 and the processing will take 10-15 days. Withdrawing Bitcoin is faster and the minimum is just $10, but the withdrawal fee is $100 (!) except for one fee-free withdrawal every 90 days.

Game providers

Bovada Casino have their own propietary games, plus games from BetSoft, Rival Gaming, and Realt Time Gaming. Many game developers have a policy of not providing games for casinos that operate without a gambling license, so it will probably be difficult for Bovada to increase their portfolio with more developers unless they manage to straighten out their license situation.

Live casino

The live casino is small and only contains four different games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, and Super 6. Regretably, there are no tables for any type of casino poker here.

The live casino is run in-house, which is rather unusual in the online casino world (most casinos get their live casino from Evolution Gaming, NetEnt or some other third-party provider).

Progressive jackpots

There are about 50 games with progressive jackpots in Bovada Casino. Regretably, we can’t find the NetEnt giants (Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Arabian Nights, Hall of Gods, etc) here, but we can wager on Microgaming’s famous Mega Moolah, plus an assortment of less well-known games, such as Birds of Fury, DJ Moo Cow, and One Million Reels BC.

Transactions

Deposits

Unlike many other online casinos, Bovada accepts both traditional currencies and the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

Deposits can be done through VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or the Bitcoin system. Regretably, you can’t use PayPal or e-wallets such as Skrill and Neteller.

The minimum deposit for Bitcoins is the eqvivalent of 10 USD. For VISA, MasterCard and American Express the minimum deposit is 20 USD.

The maximum deposit with Bitcoin is the eqvivalent of 5,000 USD, while it is only 1,500 USD for the other transfer methods.

A big drawback with Bovada is that they charge a deposit fee for VISA, MasterCard and American Express deposits, and that this fee is high: a whopping 5.9%! You do get to make ONE fee-free deposit every 90 days, but make deposits more frequently than this and the costs will start adding up quickly.

N.B! You can avoid the deposit fee altogether by depositing in Bitcoins instead of credit/debit cards.

Withdrawals

The only withdrawal methods available are Bitcoin and Cuourier Check.

Withdrawing through Courier Check will take 10-15 days. Bovada doesn’t charge any withdrawal fee, but the minimum withdrawal is rather big: 100 USD. The upper limit is 3,500 USD per week.

With Bitcoins, you get to make ONE free-free withdrawal every 90 days. Do any more withdrawals than that, and it will cost you a lot, because the withdrawal fee is 100 USD per withdrawal! The minimum withdrawal is the eqvivalent of 10 USD and the maximum is the eqvivalent of 9,500 USD. Expected processing time is 1-3 days.

License
