Bodog is a sportsbook completely dedicated to it’s Canadian bettors. So much so in fact that if you aren’t from Canada then you can’t open a Bodog account! Bodog is a great betting site, with a brand name that will be recognized by most Canadians due to it’s main stream marketing strategy. Bodog has advertised on TSN, The Score, Sportsnet and CTV, so if you’re a Canadian sports fan there is a very good chance that you have heard of Bodog. Due in part to this aggressive marketing strategy Bodog has made a name for itself as a major player in the Canadian sports betting industry.
Sign Up Bonus
Bodog offers a 100% matching bonus on your first deposit up to $400. The bonus funds are immediately added to your account and available for use (you should give it about 30 minutes for the bonus funds to show up in your account).
You must roll-over the deposit + bonus amount 5 times before requesting a withdrawal.
Using Bodog referral code “3178530” when signing up will ensure that you receive the best bonuses available at Bodog at any given time.
My tip would be to use your bonus funds as quickly as possible in order to build your bankroll. This will also give you more funds to work with when completing the roll-over requirements.
I also suggest that you just bet normally when clearing this bonus. Five times rollover might seem like a lot, but if you just bet normally you will be finished clearing your bonus before you know it.
Canadian Sports Coverage
As a Canadian you will find plenty to bet on at Bodog. They take bets on every NHL and AHL game throughout the season, as well as hockey bets on all International tournaments and some European hockey leagues. They also focus on basketball, baseball, football, soccer and the UFC. You will be able to bet on all UFC fights from main and under cards at Bodog, as well as other MMA promotions such as Bellator.
Bodog has a great live betting platform. They’ve come a long way with their live bet offerings and now take live bets on all major North American sporting events. Bodog’s live betting will be sufficient to the vast majority of bettors, but if live betting is the main thing you’re looking for in a sportsbook I suggest checking out Bet365.
Here is an example of the Bodog live betting software in action:
The Bodog mobile betting site is a treat to look at. It is one of the most well put together mobile betting platforms I have seen. When I place bets at Bodog I almost always do it through my mobile device because I find it’s just smoother and faster than betting through the website.
Here is an example of the mobile betting home page, followed by some of the odds from the NFL section of the site.
I think Bodog has the best deposit and withdrawal options for Canadians. Bodog does accept Visa & MasterCard and has a very good acceptance rate, but they also accept Interac e-Transfers, which means anyone with a Canadian bank account can easily deposit and cash out funds from their Bodog accounts. The Interac e-Transfer method is as easy as emailing money to a friend, so it’s a great option for Canadians.
Bitcoin is also really taking off in Canada and it’s a great option for deposits/withdrawals at Bodog. The digital currency that many thought could be a fad is definitely here to stay. Bitcoin is known for being extremely secure and if you aren’t comfortable entering your credit card or bank information online then this is a great option.
Bodog is the only betting site that accepts both Bitcoin and Interac e-Transfer, which I think are the two best banking options for Canadians.
Bodog understands how Canadians wants to deposit funds online. I’m personally a big fan of Bitcoin as it makes depositing and withdrawing funds online quick and easy. I’ve began using Bitcoin wherever I can over the past year.
Bodog is committed to providing a great sports betting experience to Canadians. If you have any problems you can contact Bodog via their Online Contact Form or phone support (1-877-263-6422).
