4.Betting Supply and Odds
The big markets offered seem to have very competitive odds. The main selling point is the quirky odds offered. Bet slip is down the right-hand side, with ‘risk’ and ‘win’ columns – odds in US style; these can be changed in account settings. Markets in sports events far in advance, like in boxing – Mayweather against McGregor . Bodog Does not accept US players, despite being in dollars and US odds system.

This is one of the most varied bookmakers that has been reviewed. It has a massive range of markets and the politics ones a particularly interesting. The sports markets are huge and the promotions are generous. In some areas it could do with better advertising, but the actual content of Bodog is very good. For new depositors in the correct regions, this is a more than solid place to sign up.
