Bodog Poker History
Because of the legal environment, Bodog Company launched several skins which sometimes changed their operations. Below you will find the history of PaiWangLuo Network. Please note that we will use the names of the company and of the skins linked to each specific time we describe.
In 2011, because of the uncertain legal situation, Bodog owners decided to create a separate company for serving the US market. Therefore, they moved all US customers registered at Bodog Poker to the newly launched room, Bovada, which became a new skin of Bodog Poker Network. Bovada became the biggest US friendly poker room from post Black Friday times.
In August 2016, Bovada decided to close their online poker services, but they kept offering casino and sports betting. They moved their poker customers to the newly launched skin, Ignition Poker, which shares the same player pool with Bodog Poker Network.
In August 2017, Bovada reopened their online poker services, without any official statement to explain this decision which was seen pretty confusing.
In 2018, Bovada is open to new registrations from US, Mexico and Brazil and they are offering the following services: Poker, Sports Betting, Casino, Live Dealer and Horses.
