    1. One of the first books to take bets by phone for Americans way back.

    2. Never even one complaint about book

    3. Decent Software

    4. They take a rather decent size wagers

    5. Only $20 minimum phone bets with top clerks

    6. Good Dog Book For Square Better

    7. Dual Lines which is not a bad thing

    8. Could have more betting options on games

    9. Top Ownership

    10. Top Customer service

    The only knock on Bowman's is the software. Everything else leaves them as a top notch square out.

    Last year towards the end the software got better. We shall see how they handle heavy traffic.

    I agree they could of made better decisions picking a software company

    This is a great book but as JJ mentioned they have really struggled at the start of football the last couple of years. They have had very bad luck on the software. They were one of the investors in the V. Chandler knock off software and ended up writing off $500k and getting nothing. At the time they INet which was horrible and then went to IQL. They are trying.

    Bowmans American customers were sent to Bodog

    Bowmans was one of the great books.
