Bovada.lv Casino Review

Baccarat at Bovada.lvBovada.lv has been online for about a year. That’s not a long time at all.

However, Bovada.lv is the (rebranded) US version of Bodog. Bodog has been in business since 1994 providing gamblers with a place to play casino games, poker and bet on their favorite sports teams. They are licensed (Kahnawake Gaming Commission), regulated and audited regularly. You can feel safe playing baccarat here.

Bovada’s Biggest Pro – They accept US players.

Bovada’s Biggest Con – You cannot clear their deposit bonus playing baccarat.

Bovada.lv Bonus

Bovada.lv offers two welcome bonuses. One is for slots and the other is for table games. Unfortunately, baccarat is one of those (table) games that casinos prohibit from being played for their bonuses. So if you want to take Bovada up on one of their bonuses, you’ll have to choose an approved game.

For the slots bonus, Bovada will match you 100% ¬†up to $500. It’s for slots only and has a 50x rollover. For example, if you deposit $225 you’ll be given $225 in bonus money. Before you can make a withdrawal you’ll need to wager $225 50 times ($11,250).

The table games bonus is a 100% match up to $200. This bonus has an 80x rollover requirement. Remember that games like baccarat, blackjack, sic bo and roulette cannot be played for the bonus. If you do, you run the risk of having your bonus money and winnings confiscated.

Common Bovada.lv FAQs

We’re frequently asked questions about the rooms we review. So I thought it’d be helpful to post the questions we get and our answers for you to read. I’ll update this page whenever we get more questions.

Is it free to signup to Bovada.lv?

Yes. It is free to signup for a Bovada.lv account. However, to play for real money you’ll need to make a real money deposit at either Bovada itself or whatever sister site is legal in your area. For example, Ignition Poker is the United States arm of the brand, and are popular for sit and go’s for real money and anonymous games.

How do you download the software?

Downloading Bovada’s software is easy. Just use the links on this page to visit their site. Once there, click on any of the download now buttons or links. There will be a popup asking you to download the software. Click save, and once the wizard is downloaded to your computer, double click it and the software will automatically install. All you’ll need to do afterward is create an account, if you don’t have one already. Otherwise you’ll just need to login.

Can I play for free (play) money?

Yes. In fact, I recommend playing for free to make sure you like the software. However, if you don’t want to play for real money (ever) that’s ok too. You can play for free as long as you like.

Will Bovada’s software work on my Mac computer?

Yes. However, Bovada only has a downloadable version of their software for PC users. Mac, Linux and mobile users will have to use their instant play browser software. This has fewer games, but the games they do have are the most popular (blackjack, craps, baccarat, etc).
