New to online casinos and fell hard at Bodog.
Maybe 20K in 2 months - slots $5 spins, blackjack and holdem.
TIGHT TIGHT slots -- bonus rounds MIGHT show after 100-400 spins
Move may be a BODONT and flight to vegas booked.

Quite frankly I think BODOG slots ARE THE WORSE IN THE INDUSTRY although I dont play at every casino. I play VP regularly there but when I want to take a break I low roll RTG SLOTS and I am willing to bet they have reduced the payout %age to about 50% or even more.
I am not accusing them of cheating but I play RTG slots else where which is bad but at bodog ,its horrible Can you imagine what the payout is on their own custom designed slots? Whew!
Look at their own version of VP Most of their custom designed games pay 6(30) FOR FULL HOUSES That is Madness...Imagine the mentality of the new management!!
In spite of all this BS I still play there too frequently

Well the good thing for you is Bodog is out of US market soon . I also played bodog a pretty good amount a few years ago and never came close to a win also. I must have set up one of the accounts that they mark "do not let win".

Word to the wise. When you are a newbie to online gambling, you should test as many casino options available to you as possible, low rolling until you get a feel for how rtp works or doesn't, lol. Shopping around is the best way to find a casino you are comfortable with and you won't dump all your eggs in one basket while getting to know the very unpredictable nature of online gambling.
With the very limited choice we in the US have to play, I would be very tight with my own money, because you will find "tight", anywhere you choose to play, just some may be more than others and you have to be playing at that right moment when the rtp is very generous, which is fleeting, because sooner or much later, they will all have their generous moments, but 20k won't get it for you, you could be playing $20 dollars and just get lucky.
Also, there is a thread here where Bodog is in transition, I think moving US players to another version, like MG did which was a bust.
So good luck and practice moderation.

thx for response

funny - i was in ireland last week and it seemed to link me in the euro site - couldn't get all the games but it played SUPER generously there. maybe it is routing US players (modems) differently? - or does it have something to do w/ my LAN was in ireland and on diff. system? don't know......

Your ISP was reading from Ireland, if you are back in the states it will read a different ISP. Also, you may want to contact any online casinos you opened accounts with while you were in Ireland to explain that you were on vacation(?) and are now back in the US, so you aren't accused of opening multiple accounts.

And yes, those in different countries will experience much different slot play than players from the US...better choice of platforms, games, online casinos, etc...

Yes, I think perhaps the 'etc' MAY include odds/outcome? just a hunch. maybe this is all too much "behind the black curtain" i.e. cybertrust for me.

No ... you are accusing them of cheating. Saying that they've reduced their payout on slots to 50% is tantamount to accusing them of cheating.

And your statement that most of their custom designed games pay 6 for a FH is just wrong. Yes, their Face the Ace game does, but their progressive and shockwave games certainly don't.

Maybe she is practicing moderation, you know? Many folks out there have plenty to play with and that is their choice. Not every new player necessarily wants to be lectured to either. JMO

Good luck Kathleen, Bryan has a really good recommended casino list to pick from.

Just a tip, only play video poker at Bodog. I repeat only VP. Best RTP in the online biz.

"Most of their custom designed games pay 6(30) FOR FULL HOUSES"
Huh? 9/6 you mean? 9x5 for full house 6x5 flush

No, I think he's referring to their face the ace game which pays 6 for a full house. The payouts for quad J/Q/K and quad As are increased though. Not a game I'd play, but it's not ridiculously bad.

20k :eek2: that sucks..
Hate to say this but maybe it helps in your future endeavours.. you should never ever ever chase your losses..
I know most people say the casino's can't influence their software but still I have had similar experiences and to me it seems like they know this all to well, they can smell blood and will drain you if you let them.
Bodog is a very decent brand though

Interesting. So why would you promote online casinos? Aren't you duping your players? Serious question.

I am not accusing them of cheating. If I were I wouldn't be playing there almost daily.
Secondly, referring to the payout for Video Poker , I was specifically referring to their own designed Video Poker gAMES and not the ones using the RTG pLATFORM

i HAVE BEEN AT BODOG for years now and i they are one of the most reliable casino as far as payout is concerned infrequent as the payouts maybe. But one thing when you play there, there is almost always a non deposit bonus there for you to play or cash out and guess what NO WAGE REQUIREMENTS , NO MAX CASH OUT NO BS

Now, my comments are made here knowing BODOG as it is now! I dont know what the management philosophy will be after the end of the year when they go it alone

Casinos don't need to cheat, there is house edge, there are gamblers who don't know when to say stop and made cashout, there is reversal time, which makes that imaptient players reverse and lost what they won. I don't need any goverment confirmation that casinos don't cheat, simple logic is enough for me.

bodog is not on the RTG platform, they bought the source code from RTG and run their system. If you play vp you will not get as many full houses anywhere else lol.

Ok you got me lol.. I'm the antichrist

I'm not promoting the Casino I had my own worst experience at, even though it's accredited, well.. at the time they weren't though.
But ok I might have stated it a bit too eh whats the word.. strong? If you chase your losses (at the accredited casinos) you get careless..
Satisfied now? :p
