    Bovada's Rollover Scam, er, Fine Print

    I wanted to convey a terrible experience that I just had with Bovada regarding a bonus and it's corresponding rollover requirement so that others may be aware of the tight restrictions on them.

    Earlier today, I was told that I had to wager $8K in sports or $24K in casino to complete the rollover requirement. OK, great. So I went ahead and wagered about $30K in blackjack....bonus was still not complete. How could this be you may ask? Well, it's because they only count 5-10% of wagers on blackjack against the rollover requirement.

    So for the privilege of using this site, not only do you get to pay 5.9% fee on a deposit, yet getting the funds out is nearly impossible if you opt to have a small bonus applied to the account when you do so.

    This was the first time I've used this site (for some MLB MVP bets as they were offering them while others were not) as I happily utilize about 5 others without issue.

    This will be the last time I ever use this site. Keep this in mind when considering where to place your next deposit.

    PS - I do have a withdrawal pending from several weeks ago - still nothing. How this site is rated at an "A" is baffling to me.

    Original deposit amount?

    Curious how you made that long of a run to casually bet 30k on blackjack before going broke on a rigged online gambling site lol

    Only had a 5x rollover on my 50% bonus albeit all of that was betting sports. Always paid within 2 days via BTC as well. Great book for betting dogs and unders in football as well as live betting. Maybe you should have read the rules before bashing an A+ book there buddy

    I don't plug any ol' books, but Bovada is a top 3 bookie IMHO. Always had massive bonus offers, fast withdrawals and fantastic customer support on voided bets. Let me just say I will always be a Bovada customer! Have made oodles of money off of their refer-a-friend program to boot. 5 stars.

    It's highlighted right at the top of the bonus terms.

    It's important to read bonus terms and not assume. Lots of different terms out there.






    A withdraw taking "several weeks" is prety much unheard of there.

    If you submit a Sportsbook Complaint form SBR can probably find out whats going on with that for you.
