Bovada introduces new restrictions, puzzling players
After the US federal indictment against Bodog brand franchiser Calvin Ayre, and the seizure of the defunct Bodog’s .com domain by US officials seem to have some sort of relation with the US-facing Bovada site’s new restrictions.
Bovada is a Bodog franchisee, which continued where Bodog left off in the States, offering online gambling to Americans despite the mounting pressure from the US authorities. However, this week saw a number of players report that, without any prior warning, they found the following notification when they accessed their Bovada accounts:
"Bovada has suspended transfers from residents of the following States: Maryland, Washington, New York and Utah. If you are a Bovada customer from one of the above states, you will not be able to use your MyPayLinque account to transfer. Please contact support at Bovada for further information."
So far, Bovada has not issued an official statement about the newly introduced restrictions, which triggered speculation that Bovada may be turning away from the States. Hopefully, more info about the case will be available soon.
