    Bovada Poker were the largest U.S. facing poker room before they took the unexpected decision to withdraw from the online poker market completely in 2016. Thankfully, the biggest brand in U.S. gambling have reconsidered and have decided to reopen their poker site in the USA and Latin America and we're gland to report that they're just as good as every.

    Nobody really knows, perhaps their sportsbook players kept complaining until they brought it back.

    how does the rake compare to bitcoin only poker rooms like seals with clubs and nitrogen sports poker?

    Personally I think playing at traditional U.S. facing poker rooms that accept cryptocurrencies is far better than playing at a site like SwC Poker who only have a few dozen players online at any given time. Sure, you'll save a couple of percent on the rake but there is no traffic, no proper tournaments and the software doesn't compare to what's on offer at Bovada Poker or BetOnline Poker.

    No they don't offer rakeback but they do have a bitcoin deposit bonus aimed specifically at their crypto players.

    Once thing that was seriously lacking from the Bovada poker app was the ability to play tournaments on your iPhone or Android so we're glad to say that they've finally rectified this issue
