• Some U.S. States Banned from Bovada

    Bovada Poker which is the sister site to Bodog that accepts U.S. players has now begun blocking new sign-ups from 4 U.S. states: Maryland, New York, Utah and Washington.

    It is unclear as of yet if existing players from those states be allowed to play from this point forward.

    It is so far still uncertain as to why players from these four U.S. states have suddenly been excluded. For three states, New York, Utah and Washington there is a specific law banning online gambling or a strong resistance to having it legalized. Maryland does have the dubious distinction of being the state that in February indicted Bodog founder Calvin Ayre.

    Others think that it could be a payment processor issue in those states and an issue may come up with getting players their money in a timely matter.

    We will continue to monitor this issue and update as soon as we can. As of now, new players from Maryland, New York, Utah and Washington are banned from playing at Bovada.
