Bodog Review

Current Sign Up Bonus: 100% Bonus to $250

Bodog Canada is a fun place to play whether you like to bet on sports, casino games, or poker. Originally founded by Canadian Calvin Ayre, Bodog sportsbook continues to cater to us Canucks by offering betting accounts in Canadian funds with easy and fast funding methods.

Bodog Sign Up Bonus

On your first deposit, the Bodog bonus offer is 100% cash, up to $250 value. You’ll need to roll over (bet the equivalent of) your deposit and bonus 5 times before making a withdrawal.

Making your first deposit will also make you eligible for Bodog bonus codes in the Bodog casino, poker room and horse racing racebook.

Bodog Website

Landing on the Bodog Canada home page is the online equivalent to opening the door to a glitzy Las Vegas casino: it gives you an instant rush.

Flashy graphics show off all of the sportsbook, casino and poker options.

Click on sports to get to the Bodog sports betting menu. Featured betting lines are listed on the top-left corner of the page, the top 5 betting lines are listed in the middle of the screen, and links to all sports offered are to the left.

To make a bet, make your pick, fill out the betting slip in the top-right corner of the page and confirm.

Bodog Mobile Site

The Bodog mobile site (also known as the Bodog app) is a very toned-down version of the main site, but it’s very easy to quickly find what you’re looking for.

The Bodog mobile home page lists all the sports currently available for betting. To make a bet, select your sport, click the type of bet you want to make, make your selection and determine the size of your wager.

A menu across the bottom of the screen allows you to view your current wagers.

Bodog Live Betting

Bodog live betting distinguishes itself by offering plenty of propositions during game play, like how many hits or runs a baseball team will get in an inning, or even the outcome of the next at-bat.

Bodog live betting odds also include the standard live moneylines, point spreads and totals.

Bodog Betting Odds

As a sportsbook that primarily serves recreational bettors, Bodog betting odds often make it a bit pricier for you to bet on the heavy favourites.

But, on the good side, that means the odds on underdogs are often inflated as well.

Don’t be surprised if you can sometimes catch an extra half-point on NFL or NBA underdogs, or a fatter price on an NHL underdog.

Bodog Deposit Methods

If you use online banking, you shouldn’t have any problems depositing at Bodog.

Bodog is the only sportsbook we know of that accepts Interac e-transfers as a funding method. Just add them as an Interac e-transfer recipient, use the secret question and answer they provide, and send them money just like you’d pay back your buddy.

Bodog was also one of the first sportsbooks to accept bitcoin deposits. Bitcoin is a digital currency that is created and held electronically, enabling you to send and receive it anonymously and without using your bank.

Account Setup: Several days
Availability of Funds: Instant

Bitcoin is a digital currency that is created and held electronically. It’s best described as cash for the Internet, a way to send and receive money online without using a middleman like a bank. It will take you a couple of days to set up your bitcoin wallet at first, but then you'll be able to send bitcoin quickly and conveniently. Fees are low and you will enjoy the ability to send and receive money to and from your sportsbook with complete anonymity.

Account Setup: None Required

Credit cards can be a quick and easy way to deposit at an online sportsbook. Visa tends to work a little better than Mastercard, but be aware that not all issuing banks allow deposits to online sportsbooks. Read more in our detailed review, which covers some alternatives should your credit card not work as a deposit method.
