Bookmaker Review of

Last Update: April 10

Relatively new to the UK sports betting market, Bodog is already making quite the splash in the UK with its recent partnership with Fulham Football Club, strengthening its status as the best known online sportsbook. Bodog is now the football team�s official betting site.

Bodog has been in operation stateside for over 15 years, to much acclaim amongst US sports betting aficionados. Founded by industry maverick Calvin Ayre, Bodog has been described as the Virgin of online sports betting and gambling. Ayre hopes that Bodog�s cutting edge bets and appealing risk bets will appeal to British punters and there�s little reason to think it won�t.

Opening a Bodog account

Bodog�s proprietary software has been heralded in the US market and it seems as if they�ve just made a few UK-friendly changes. Indeed, opening an account is quick and features one of the better �hand-holding� signup processes around.

Bodog Website & Software

Bodog�s site is well laid out, if not overly complex. However no other site gives you more resources and more wagering options, so if you like variety than Bodog is the site for you.

Bodog Betting Limits

Betting limits differ depending upon method. Online wagers begin from as little as �1 or $50 by phone. While their default maximum bet is �2,000, high limits are available to some players.

Bodog Sports

While Bodog UK does focus on football and American sports, every major sport is represented as are regional and specialty sports.

Odds at Bodog

Bodog is well known for offering appealing odds on almost every major sporting wager. The bigger the game, the more options including parlays, teasers, futures and unique side bets.

Bodog Signup Bonus

New members receive a 10% cash bonus on their first deposit, up to �50 max. After five wagers, members can receive an additional �25 in free bets.

Bodog Bonuses

Bodog offers refill bonuses on its poker and casino rooms as well as lucrative contests for sportsbook members. Special deposit bonuses are regularly emailed to customers.

Bodog Customer Support

Bodog offers 24/7 customer support via live chat, fax, email or toll-free telephone from within the UK.

Bodog Security

While there was some trouble with government intervention on its American operations several years back, things has been cleared up and their return to iron-clad financial security is visible in its UK operations.

Bodog Deposit / Withdrawals

Bodog UK offers the following deposit methods:

  • Debit Cards � Maestro, Solo, Switch & Delta
  • Credit Cards � Visa & Mastercard
  • Click2Pay
  • Neteller
  • Moneybookers
  • Paysafecard

However withdrawals are only available from a few of those methods.

Additional Information

Bodog offers customers many perks. Members have access to a cutting-edge poker room, casino, betting tips, sports blog and the chance to represent Bodog at the World Series of Poker.


Bodog dominated the US market for a reason. With their aggressive lines and appealing offers, serious punters should give this Yankee export a fair shake.
