Bodog Online Betting
American bookmaker Bodog is one of the newer online bookies to have a UK specific site, launched in 2009. Founded in 1994 in the US, Bodog specialises in all the American sports, whether it be NFL, Basketball, Baseball or Ice Hockey. The move to the UK means that they now cover of all big European events such as football, tennis, golf and cricket. The site doesn't currently offer bets on horse racing in the UK and Ireland, but if you are based in America you can bet on the horse racing in the States.
Bodog offer a good £25 free bet to get you started and their odds are competitively priced. They will have the extra nouse when it comes to the American sports covered, so bear this in mind when betting with them.

The Bodog site is easy to use and easy to navigate. The navigation is standard down the left hand side of the page, with featured links to the more popular betting sports such as football and tennis. Bodog also have live betting in running with a console that is easy to find and use. The site is quick to use, even during busy periods.
The site appears a bit basic from a design perspective, but it is simple to use which is the main thing. In running betting is easy to use and to find and you can get your bet on the featured events very quickly. If you're wanting to have a bet on the US Racing, you have to click on the tab at the top of the page rather than in the standard navigation on the left hand side so that can be a little misleading.
Bodog covers off all the main European sports, such as football across all the poular leagues, tennis, golf, cricket, rugby union and league, plus sports such as snooker and darts. However, it is the US sports where Bodog really stands out, covering the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB, plus college sports also. This is a really good bookmaker for these sports and if you are based in the USA, you can place bets on the American version of the site.
There's nothing particualrly unique about the site when it comes to features. There's a good free bet and a good live betting console, but it's really the ability to accept US bets and the wide range of American sports betting they have on offer which sets Bodog apart from the UK bookies.
Bodog is reputable company with a solid if not spectacular website and range of betting. The site doesn't off UK or Irish horse racing but makes up for that with it's extensive markets on US sports such as American football, Basketball, Ice Hockey and Baseball. You can have a bet with Bodog if you are based in the United States and the in-running console is very good.
