Bovada Online Casino and Poker Transactions Slower Than Usual

Published Sunday, June 03, 2012 -

Bovada is the new Bodog casino run by the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group which is registered by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission in Quebec Canada. Bodog has had a sterling reputation as a solid enterprise that is accessible and honest. Bovada was created to accommodate players in the USA in 2011. The change in name is primarily a licensing issue. Bodog is still Bodog but they are now focusing their efforts in the UK and other European countries. Bovada has been running behind in its payouts and deposits of late with a few glitches surfacing recently. The increasingly long payout times by the online casino, sports betting, and poker room operator have loyal players upset and concerned these longer and longer delays are caused by something more serious.The software platform is Real Time Gaming (RTG) which offers over 120 Las Vegas style casino games.

Initially it was a 7 day timeframe for payments at Bovada then the changes began with 15 days, then 21 days, and finally 25 business days which translates into 35 calendar days and even these extra long time frames are still difficult for the company to meet its obligations. One blogger wrote he could not cash the cheque sent by Bovada because it was from a Canadian bank. It was suggested by those concerned customers on the forums that there is long delay and players shouldn’t put any more funds into the site until Bovada has the issues resolved.

Looking at the situation from the US standpoint it is possible that the usual interference is being applied to Bovada transactions although other US facing poker rooms are having less problems than this one. Reputation is a big factor that online gamblers look for when choosing a site to play at. Other operators have made some players just a little gun shy and for good reason as those who experienced the Full Tilt Poker fiasco first hand will attest too.
