Limits and Rake
The rake caps are fairly average, but a bit pricier in the middle range of low limit games when compared to most other sites. The 5% rake is standard, but the $0.10 max for $0.05/$0.10 and the $0.50 max for $0.25/$0.50 games is lower than most. But where $0.50/$1 and $1/$2 games would cap at one dollar at other sites, Bodog Poker's cap is $1.50. Higher limits cap at $3; also fairly standard.
Traffic Quality
Steady traffic flows to Bodog Poker, both from the affiliated casino and sportsbook, and from a marketing campaign that is very effective. Most of the players come from the US, so peak hours there will dictate peak hours on Bodog Poker. Texas Hold'em games of all limits seem to be hoping constantly, and even Omaha appears to be pretty popular. The quality of the players ranges quite a bit. Much of the traffic for the site is for the weekly 100K guaranteed and other tournaments

Texas Hold'Em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi-Lo all come in Pot Limit and Limit, with No Limit reserved for Hold'em. There are plenty of Stud options: 5 Card, 7 Card, and 7 Card Hi-Lo. As for tournaments, multi tables are all Hold'em, and Sit N Go events run the gamut.

The lobby and the tables carry off the rich, classy feel nicely, and the filters on the ring games and tourneys work well. There is not a lot of "extra" getting in the way, visually, which makes for a pleasant experience.

Other Features
If you have a hankering to bet on your favorite sport, or take on the house in Baccarat and Blackjack, then Bodog Sportsbook and Bodog Casino are easy to get to. While you are playing poker, you are racking up Bodog Poker Points, which are used to buy in to various tournaments.
Customer Service
A toll free number for US callers gets you right in touch with the Bodog Customer Service outfit, who are ready to help. Email is also an option
