Bovada.lv Replaces Bodog For USA Based Players!
So perhaps you’ve heard rumors about Bodog leaving their USA players to hang out to dry. There were mumblings about them getting busted by the US Dept. of Justice. Some said they were running away with players’ funds. Well, I’m happy to report (as I already knew) that all of this is complete BUNK! The facts are that the Bodog brand applied for, and was granted, a betting license in the UK. In order to remove any remote possibility of creating waves with any issues pertaining to their catering to American based players, they have removed the Bodog name from the good ole USA. Since 2007, the Bodog site used by American players was completely administrated by the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (“MMGG”) pursuant to a gaming license issued by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, located in the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, Canada. This is the same group that has now launched the BOVADA.LV label! Everything at Bovada is the same that it was at Bodog as of yesterday. The same platform, customer service, payout system…everything. This is only affecting accounts used by American players, and all others will be able to continue to access the Bodog platform as they have previously.
You can now go to Bovada.lv and login with your Bodog username and password and start betting right away. Here is a statement that was issued by Bodog.eu to their clients who were accustomed to using Bodog from within the USA…
Statement:Bodog.eu is changing – New Name, New Look, Same Great ServiceThe Morris Mohawk Gaming Group’s (“MMGG”) brand licensing agreement with the Bodog Brand is expiring at the end of this year and as a result MMGG will no longer be offering its services using the bodog name or from the website, bodog.eu.
From today, December 14th, MMGG will continue to operate as it has for over 4 years, just under its new name, BOVADA, at www.bovada.lv.
Your account and balance has automatically been transferred to the new website and you are able to log in to the site using your existing account details and password.
PLEASE NOTE: As part of the transition process, there will be a scheduled outage overnight to both the old and new websites. We expect Bovada.lv to be live by 11:00am ET on December 14th, 2011.
