    Bovada has changed bonus percentage contribution

    Has anyone noticed Bovada has changed they're bonus system for Video Poker (All types), Blackjack (unless stated otherwise), Classic Blackjack, Baccarat. It used to be 60% now it is only 10%. Very hard to cash out 60% let alone 10%. The bonus system was the only thing it had going for it now I won't deposit with them at all.

    Yeah I noticed that too. I'm done with them too. Just to many issues. Too many other really good sports books.

    Heck, they used to give 100% on video poker, offered games with 99.95% payback, and would give away $10,000+ a year in match bonuses with no deposit requirements. I remember some Easter promotion they had about 4 years ago that gave $3,000 in match bonuses and video poker would be worth 100% towards a 40x rollover. You didn't even need to deposit, just transfer 3k to the casino, it would be worth 6k, and it would be locked until you hit your rollover (and were allowed months to meet the rollover requirements). The cool thing was, if you lost the transfer amount, your rollover requirements ended, so you could never lose more than the transfer amount. I remember playing a ton of Pick'em poker for that Easter promo, going on an incredible heater, and making 7k. Alas, those days are long gone. They didn't mind giving players +EV back in the day as long as the players were actively playing other things like poker, horses and sports. The good 'ol days, never to be seen again.

    They don't even have the downloadable casino anymore, as that was WAY better then the stuff you can play right on the site. Their downloadable casino, software, and weekly bonuses were the best there was for years. I'm sure it's no longer viable for them anymore, which is why it ended, but I'm sure at the time when money flowed freely and they had a huge player base, they could afford to do it.
