Bodog88 is the skin of the well-known Bodog/Bovada poker network (recently changed name to the PaiWangLuo Network), focused on the Asian poker market.
Bodog88 shares a common pool of players with other skins of the network (Bovada, Ignition, Bodog poker Latin America) which provides a non-stop action both in MTT and cash games.
Bodog88 is the most interesting option for grinders living in Thailand, which is the most popular place to spend the winter.
Worth noting that for deposit/cashout you can use several Thai banks that are pretty loyal in terms of opening bank accounts for non-citizens.
The peak of traffic happens at a convenient time for Thailand.
Table selection is not supported. Table seating is completely random.
Traffic reaches its peak in the evening, North American time, which corresponds to the morning/late morning in Thailand.
During the peak hours you can find action at any limits from NL5 to NL2000.
Most of the action is focused at low and mid stakes in NLHE, but Omaha lovers will not be left disappointed either.
A distinctive feature of Bodog88 is not only a fairly good traffic, but also the quality of this traffic – there is a lot of fish at the tables with a relatively small number of regulars.
Bodog88 has its own kind of fast poker called Zone Poker. 4 limits are available: NL5, NL25, NL50, NL200.
Room has a decent MTT schedule, including daily regular tournaments and special tournaments on weekends.
The room has its own version of Spins – JackPot SNG. There are limits from $2 to $60. The maximum multiplier is x1200.
SOFTWARE AND TRACKERS SUPPORT
Within the Bodog network all rooms have the same poker client.
The software has a standard set of settings.

Game type: Holdem / Omaha Hi / Omaha Hi-Lo.
Limit: No Limit / Pot Limit / Fixed Limit.

Even though Bodog88 is kind of unfriendly to regulars (we are talking about the technical restriction on the number of opened tables), it has a surprisingly small rake.
For cash games rake is 5% with the following caps:
– at limits up to NL25 – from $0.5 to $2;
– at limits from NL25 – from $1 to $4.
The exact size of the cap depends on the number of players at the table.
In MTT rake ranges from 7.5% to 10% and in SNG – from 5% to 10%.
- Technical restriction on the number of opened tables;
- Anonymous tables.
