    Bovada is one of our favorite crypto sportsbooks because A) they accept BTC deposits/withdrawals B) they are part of the high traffic PaiWangLuo Poker Network C) they offer great poker software for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. D) they now support tournaments on mobile devices.

    Despite Bovada poker being available in most US states, Bovada was not available to poker players in New York. They recently lifted this restriction and New York State based real money players are being accepted once again. While one of their representatives confirmed the change, they did not elaborate on why New York poker players are suddenly welcome again. Perhaps they were unable to process NY registered debit and credit cards but now they've found a way to accept deposits. It's also possible that they watched other offshore poker rooms operate in NY without any legal consequences so they've decided to renter the New York market. Nobody really knows outside of Bovada but we are happy that real money players in New York can once gain play at one of the best cryptocurrency poker sites.

    Yes, I don't think Bovada is restricted in any US states at the moment for sports betting so happy gambling.

    It doesn't make any sense to stop sports betting in certain parts of the USA when you have companies like FanDuel and DraftKings operating legally.

    In short, Bovada Poker is the most ""PokerStars-like"" of anyone in the US market: tons of games, quick payouts, and a long clean history. The main difference is Bovada Poker actually has profitable games.

    Perhaps best of all, the roots of Bodog, which was one of my first toes dip into the waters of online poker back in the halcyon days of 2004, is behind it all. That matters because they've built an impeccable reputation for excellent payouts and player support, all while successfully still allowing American players.

    Bovada Poker returns to a fully-furnished online poker mansion in the virtual ether.
