I've been with them now since about last may and I just have to say that the folks who work there are nothing but a pleasure to work with no matter the situation, they're polite on the phone, they fix your issues, they are from my standpoint simply on top of it all when it comes to taking care of customers. And I totally want to say I appreciate that.

I have done pretty well since arriving, take home cash has been close to 30k and thats not counting the handful of times i racked a grand or so and squandered it. But what I appreciate is they have never given one issue when it comes to payments, nothing. It might be a tad slow at times but it comes each and every time without fail, and for me as a player there for over a year I just have many thanks for making my time enjoyable.

I still believe in the "switch" at times but it always seems to come back around and that's what I've noticed is even when I'm in a rut, man it comes back in such thunderous fashion.

But yea, just a little thread of appreciation for Bovada.. They've given my father and I a great time and have paid us a nice bit of extra change, thanks again!

Payments a little slow? They are top rated with regard to payout speeds in most of the online poker payout reports! If for some reason you're not satisfied with their traditional payment method speeds (checks, wires, etc), I highly highly suggest learning how to use bitcoin. It is a bit intimidating at first, but ultimately, it's very fast, cheap, and easy to use once it's set up and running.

It's not anything major but yea it's a little slow at times. Like a few times I've cashed out and no prob it'll say it's going to take about 3 days to process etc... But then sometimes they will send emails suggesting another option to get my money when my original option was chosen for a reason, just feels like they stall a bit at times. Which they will say if they don't hear from me within the next 48 hours they will continue with original payment form. So it's frustrating because it adds then even another few days to simply pull my money which they know when it sits there it tempts people.

And my checks typically utilize the 3 full 5 day weeks to arrive.

It's no sweat tho, they pay each and every time and that's all that matters.

And I'm just not in the bitcoin scene yet, which I know would be faster but I like a good check.

Well bovada atm can go seriously diaf right now.. I am experiencing the most ungodly cold streak imaginable.

Gambling will always come back to haunt you. Especially if you're playing the -EV casino games. They just opened their poker room back up. Perhaps try playing poker, which is the only potentially +EV game to play there. Of course, you have to study poker and become good enough to beat other players, and the house rake. But it's completely doable to become a winning poker player, specially at the lower stakes with weak competition.

Yea, it just gets way to cold sometimes to the point I have to stop. When normally it seems I win some lose some and that balances out in a pattern that's enjoyable enough to keep going. After every big pay it goes so cold I have to stop for a few months, happens like clockwork. So just on a hiatus, sadly never been much of a poker player, wish I was tho

I hate to say it, but I think you're just finding patterns where none exist. I've been a professional poker player for over a decade and I win on all the sites. Not every month on every site, but in the aggregate, good strategy and good game selection always wins out in the long run. The games aren't rigged to give hot and cold streaks. That's just how statistical variance works. When someone interprets it as something else, it's just some sort of

It is what it is, pattern or not my actual experiences has been this.

Play have fun, win some lose some.
Hit pretty big and cash out.
Get check
Lose lose lose lose lose lose nonstop for weeks on end til I quit
Take break for a month or so.
Come back and then it seems normal win and lose some in a fun manner until I hit decent again.

But it's been about 5 or 6 cash outs where I instantly go into a losing streak that isn't even fun to work with. Every deposit straight to 0 no matter what game.

So it is what it is but that's pretty much how it goes for me.

Overall Happy With Bovada

Did great there this month. Only thing I don't like is that I request a check and don't get the tracking number until after it's been delivered. I had a $1,520 check sitting on my front porch overnight until I found it the next day. Signature required but apparently DHL didn't feel they needed to wait for one. Usually it's sent FedX overnight, signature required. Got my tracking number from Bovada that night so it didn't do me any good.

So now I have another approved cashout (turned $24 in comps into $700) and I'll be checking the front porch multiple times a day. Haven't really looked into BitCoin so I know it's an option. Just saying that there's a problem with getting a tracking number before it's actually delivered.

Slots. Scary Rich/Scary Rich 2 can still be very generous on low bets. Played on the 100% (100/100/5000) match for the $1,520 and had a few $300+ hits in the bonus spins. For the $24 comps, I ran it up to over $1,000 (great SR/SR2 hits), cashed out $700. Bets were only .60 or .80. Strangely enough, my best hits are early AM, always has been.

Have another 31 in comps. Maybe SR/SR2 will be good once again.

This last cash out was approved in under 48 hours. I'm not around here much, but I don't recall hearing anything bad about this group. Certainly not from me.:D

I'll have to give that a try man, awesome to hear. Yea when you're on at bovada you're on, that's what I've always liked and noticed. I'll have to give that slot a try.

I actually racked up goldbeard again the other night to 2400 bucks, caught it on a 5 and 10 buck spin... It's sort of easy to predict once you get it going. But I crushed it tryin to hit for some 100 and 20 buck spins lol that one hurt... But I thought if I could catch it on a 100 it'd be glorious. Gonna try that scary rich game tho man, thanks for the heads up

Haven't played that game in a while.

SR/SR2 have been around a long time. It can be extremely brutal, like 10 free spins of nothing or take a long time to get the 3 scatters. On SR2 a couple days ago, 13 spins I won .10. Ugly. Bonuses seem to come easier on SR2.

Both games can be very good if you hit the 3 wilds in the bonus that expand and cover all of reels 1, 2, and 3.

Good luck!

Congrats on the wins this month. Were I you, I would have waited until next month to cash out a second time since you only get one free cash out per month on Bovada. With that said let me address the bitcoin question.

There are lots of ways to set up bitcoin, tons of software, hardware, etc that you can use. However, the easiest way is to use online wallets. As such, I recommend using Coinbase as your exchange to buy bitcoin, not because it's cheapest, but because it's simple. Then I suggest you use blockchain.info as your actual wallet which will hold your btc and from which you will send to Bovada or any other poker or gambling site. Here's a

Actually cashed out at the end of August so no fee for that or this cashout. I know about the one free cashout rule. Because I got the check last week, I forgot my play was in August! No matter, should have said the last 30 days...

Thanks for the info on Bitcoin. Fast payouts with no charges looks pretty good.

Another suggestion regarding bitcoin if you go with the tried and true Coinbase+Blockchain exchange/wallet combo. Buy your bitcoin as much as you can "in bulk" from Coinbase rather than say $20 at a time. The fees on Coinbase have been high lately and you'll lose a significant chunk off a $20 deposit. But if you buy say, $500 at a time it's much more manageable vig wise. Of course, this may not even apply to you since you've been cashing out. Just be sure to withdraw to your wallet and not your exchange. Always use the wallet for sending/receiving from gambling sites. Only use the exchange for converting into fiat/local currency.

I decided to finally deposit here and see what happens. After having no success at 3Dice, I deposited $50 and played slots. I managed to request a payout of $2200 via bitcoin. I know I need to send in my verification docs since this is my first withdrawal. I had a lot of fun with the slots and will definitely deposit again.

After having NO luck at 3Dice this morning... Woot, hit free spins on Scary Rich 2 @ Slots.lv (bovada sister site) at $5 a spin... three coffins & two rats later I had 3500 in my account. (On the third spin, was only going to spin 4x.)(If you're not familiar w/that one, Savatage, the coffins are expanding wilds & multipliers in free spins.)

Blew a thousand of it :eek2: & have a pending bit w/d now for $2500. Not bad for a $25 deposit. :D :thumbsup: :D
