MMA fights, ultimate fighting, they have it all. There is really no need to go elsewhere. The new major focus of this sportsbook has been in offering UFC fans a place to bet on all of the matches.

Most guys who’ve been into televised poker and MMA poker for a long time would know the name “Bodog.” It was the biggest and the most successful online betting site a few years ago. Today, it operates under the name “Bovada,” and it is still one of the behemoths today, offering a wide array of sports to wager. So while this sportsbook is new in terms of the brand, the software, people, and integrity are still of the same great standards. So if you thing Bovada is a reputable and safe place to gamble with your money, the answer is an emphatic yes!

UFC/MMA Betting

Bovada is well-known to have the best coverage of wagering sports than many sportsbooks in the world. This is certainly one of the best destinations if you are a UFC/MMA aficionado. You can find a wide array of markets to bet on. Bovada presents early money line odds on UFC PPV for players who wish to place their odds early enough and wait for the fights. Other odds can be placed right close to the tournaments which can be a bit disadvantageous for some gamblers. MMA and UFC leagues are currently witnessing major growth rates, and so is the coverage at Bovada. Currently, bettors have a chance to place straight bets on StrikeForce fights, Cage Rage, Elite XC, K-1, IFL, WEC, and UFC. Gamers also have a chance to place a variety of prop bets for MMA fights, parlays for any MMA/UFC fights, round robin bets, if bets, and action reverse bets.

Other Sports

As aforementioned, Bovada is known to offer a wide assortment of games, meaning you will not only find MMA and UFC markets. At this online sportsbook, you will find odds on horse racing, darts, snooker, motor sports, cricket, boxing, baseball, tennis, golf, hockey, basketball, soccer, and football. Other more obscure and unpopular sports are also available.


One of the advantages of joining this sportsbook is its welcome bonus. Once you create a user account, you will be given a welcome bonus in terms of a ‘free bet’ which is a 50% first deposit match up to $250. You can use this bonus immediately on any kind of wager you prefer. However, you need to rollover the deposit amount and the free bet 3x before you can make your withdrawal.

Betting Interface

I have always been a fan of Bovada interface, and even though the site made some changes in 2015, the interface still look pretty good. After these changes, the listing of sports is now available on the drop down menus available at the top of the page. It is easy to jump between sports and bet types. The games available at the top can be scrolled through easily from one side to the other, and more markets are made available underneath the games.

Another interesting thing about Bovada’s interface is the Bet Slip. As you click bets on the page, they will be added automatically to a bet slip—adding and removing bets from this slip is incredibly easy and painless. While this might not seem like a big of a deal, you would agree that some sportsbook sites have chunky, complicated bet slip features.

Mobile Betting

Mobile betting is increasingly becoming popular in the gaming industry. Most people today do not need a computer to wager on their favorite sports—they only need a solid mobile web, and they are good to go. Bovada understands how critical this is to their success in the industry, so its mobile platform is up there with the best. It is easy to place wagers using Bovada mobile interface; logging on, placing bets, and switching sports is easy and quick.

Key Advantages:

  • Probably the best and easiest payout of any sportsbook in the world
  • Full range of sports to wager on
  • Excellent customer service
  • A variety of deposit bonuses and promotions
