Bovada is an established online gambling brand on the internet. They started back in 1995, by offering an online casino and a sportsbook. The online poker room was launched in 2004, and is currently a popular online poker room. They started growing thanks to the massive promotions that they are offering. Bovada Poker is currently one of the hottest online poker rooms on the internet. They are still accepting players from United States, and they are not part of any online poker network, since they are proud to say that they are an independent poker room.
Bovada is currently offering many entertainment services like: TV production (which is currently producing a reality TV series), record label, publishing division, plus many others.
Thanks to the fact that a large number of players are coming from their other online gambling ventures (the Bovada sportsbook, and the online casino with the same brand name), you will find some loose and juicy games. The players that are focusing on the sportsbook, or the online casino, are popular to be bad poker players, so it will be easy for a normal, poker player to win.

Traffic and competition
The statistics of Bovada Poker are showing that during the peak hours there are up to 4,000 online poker players connected at the ring tables, and 20,000 players at the online tournaments. Even if there aren't many online players connected compared to all the other super popular poker rooms, a great thing about this online poker room is that many of the players that are there will come from the Bovadas' online casino and sportsbook. This way the competition from Bovada Poker is going to be soft, and an experienced poker player will find easily juicy tables, where he can cash in. This way the level of the game will be low for no matter what the stake is.
Software and graphics
The software behind this poker room is not the flashiest around, but thanks to that you will be able to experience a faster game play, and a stable poker server. The features offered by Bovada Poker will give you enough information about your game play, and about the tables, so that there won't be any difficulties in selecting a juicy table. The flop percentage will be available at each and every table, and also the statistics of your play will be updated in real time, this way it will be easier for a player to know his online poker evolution.
