Standout features include an almost instant setup extremely fast payouts

Getting started on couldn't be easier: you just click on the site and you're in! Creating an account is similarly a one-minute affair; name, address, date of birth (naturally, they need to verify that you are of age!), and then you create a password. Badda bing badda boom, you're ready to play. Can't get much simpler than that.

Once you've done that, you'll easily navigate over your hundreds of action choices and everything is really made simple, wherever you go. We spent a lot of time exploring the site, and didn't come up against one thing we couldn't easily find the answer to in clear and simple language.

Naturally, you can also enjoy all the action on your smartphone with the great Bovada Casino mobile offering.


An awesome thing about Bovada Casino is that it doesn't restrict the gaming action to just one platform. The mobile version of the casino allows users to play for real money or just practice from their smartphones at any time of the day and basically from any place that has internet coverage. Just go to the website from the browser on your mobile device of choice and you will see the fair amount of slots, virtual tables and other games. It works on iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows tablets and smartphones.

Bovada Mobile Casino even has a $10 bonus waiting for new players and it will keep most of the functionality for banking to allow for secure and easy deposits or withdrawals. You will not have to install any applications and the list of mobile games will include 8 Lucky Charms, Big Cash Win, Cleopatra's Gold, Blackjack and Baccarat.

We've already mentioned the outstanding bonus structures providers, and the referral incentives, but just to recap: The general casino sign up bonus for first-time players is 100% matching, up to $3000. For poker players, it's 100% matching sign up bonus up to $1,000, and for the sportsbook, , it's a free 50% bet up to $250 with your first deposit! That's a lot of free money for you to win even more with.

But the bonuses don't end there; you continue to receive credits for all your play that can be converted into more casino chips, plus you can designate one day a week as your "match" day to receive a deposit matching bonus.

You can be quite confident about's SSL encryption levels, which protect all your personal information. The site also gives you loads of information on adjusting your device's security levels to keep you safe while being well able to use all of its features.

That's a Wrap

To recap our Bovada review, it's an easy-to-navigate, graphically rich, bonus-generous casino and sportsbetting site where you can find any game you want, any hour of the day or night. Whether you're new to online gambling, or looking for one place that has everything, Bovada Casino really delivers.

Kind of like your local pizza joint, without the grease or calories.
