If you’re a keen punter and you live in Asia, Europe, or North America, it’s quite likely that you have come across Bodog’s award-winning sportsbook setup at some point in your online betting adventures. Now Bodog88.com has added greyhound markets to its already prolific repertoire, and we at Australian Racing Greyhound are very excited about what this means for fans of international dog racing.
The Bodog brand was founded in 1994 by Calvin Ayre, now one of the most successful businessmen on the face of the planet. The company has since blossomed into one of the largest providers of online gambling solutions, with a product range that includes sports betting, online poker and real money casino games.
Indeed, such is Bodog’s worldwide appeal that Google Alerts has recognised it as the single most popular gaming provider on the World Wide Web. It has also been named ‘Most Innovative Site’ in the eGaming Review Power50 – a respected industry database which rates and ranks the leading Internet gambling operators.
Bodog 88 is designed especially for gamblers in Asia. The site offers three language options – Mandarin, Thai and English – and two selectable layouts, thus catering for locals and expats alike from Beijing to Bangkok.
Like all the best online bookmakers, Bodog88 is devoted to making your gambling experience as simple and stress-free as possible. The result of that ethos is a desktop betting layout which is at once uncomplicated and full of neat features.
The first thing you will notice about the Bodog sports book is the complete lack of clutter. Whereas some betting sites are stuffed to the gills with tickers, advertisements and spammy promotions, this one is as clean and clear as they come. There is no confusion about where you are, or how to get where you want to go.
The key feature here is a simple sidebar which gives you easy access to every online betting market available at Bodog. It also comes with a couple of quick links at the top which let you jump over to the cashier, the promotions page and live chat support in one click.
Finding and betting on greyhound markets is a sinch at Bodog. Scroll down the sidebar and click on the ‘Racing’ section to open up the submenu, where you will find the ‘Greyhounds’ option. Hit that and in a moment you will see a table showing runners and tote odds for the next race, as well as a complete list of all upcoming races. Now you just have to find your favourite wagers and add them to the virtual bet slip.
Every leading greyhound betting site offers mobile platforms for smartphone and tablet devices, and Bodog is no different. Whether you have an Android product, an Apple iPhone or iPad, a Windows Phone, or even a BlackBerry, you can bet on all the same greyhound markets available on the standard desktop setup. You can also make fast deposits and secure withdrawals via the Bodog mobile betting site.
For one-touch access from your smart device’s home screen, Bodog gives you the option to create a quick and easy Web app. This works just like a native mobile application, but without the hassle of searching through the App Store or Google Play. Just tap on the bubble that appears when you first visit www.Bodog88.com and follow the prompts, and in seconds you will have a fully integrated greyhound betting app installed on your phone or tab.
The Bodog sportsbook supports a number of convenient, highly secure options for funding your online betting account. Currency options include Chinese yuan (RMB), Thai baht (THB) and Malaysian ringgit (MYR).
The most popular deposit methods are credit cards and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, EntroPay, Maestro), direct online banking and over-the-counter bank transfers. For safe deposits with no transaction fees and no turnaround times so you can start gambling straight away, we recommend credit/debit cards and express bank transfers.
Bodog covers hundreds of greyhound racing markets every day, with a special focus on race meets in Australia and New Zealand. And if you also fancy a punt on live sports from around the world, there’s plenty to keep you satisfied:
With more than two decades’ experience in the online gaming industry, Bodog.com has learned a thing or two about how to look after its loyal customers. You can talk with professional support via live chat at any time, day or night, or get in touch on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Bodog also runs two dedicated telephone hotlines for Mandarin and Thai speakers:
China – 400 842 8505
Thailand – 001800 1320 303 08
You don’t last as long as Bodog has without running a very tight ship. The site uses state-of-the-art security measures to ensure player safety and adheres strictly to all rules and regulations for online gaming operators. Everything is monitored 24/7/365, to ensure optimal year-round performance and no foul play.
Look at it this way: Bodog is the official betting partner of Arsenal FC and has enjoyed affiliations with the likes of the LA Lakers, the English Premier League (EPL), the National Hockey League (NHL), Playboy Magazine and Universal Pictures. Huge international brands like those don’t just team up with any old two-bit bookmaker.
