Bovada supports the traditional game selection including Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo and 5 card Draw with the majority of the players found at either Texas Holdem or Omaha Hi Lo. During peak hours you will find just over 5,000 players online and stakes are normally $0.05/$0.10 up to $50/$100, although players who need higher limits can contact the poker site to request this.
The current tournament schedule provides a weekly $100,000 guaranteed tournament which often sees frequent overlays, in addition to a weekly tournament leaderboard which not only offers a top prize of battling a Team Bovada pro, but features a progressive jackpot. Each week the heads up tournament guarantees a $1,000 prize pool and should the pro knock out the player, that prize will be added to the prize pool of the following week until it is won. Bovada sends thousands of players each year to major events including the WSOP, WPT, and any other tournament listed in the poker circuit. Qualifiers and satellites are available on site or you can win your seat through the Playerís Choice promotion.
Bovadaís software program is not only very easy to use but has been kept simple which means lags and delays will never be an issue. The lobby features statistics for each of the ring games, with active table presented in a different colour. All of the current promotions will be listed on the side menu. The poker room supports custom avatars which can be uploaded from your pc and the overall table appearance is a flat solid colour which is chosen by the players. A spotlight is used to signal the player who is next to act. During the latest upgrade Bovada added resizing tools, for players who want to multi-table. The only downfall to the poker room is they only support up to three games in play at once.
