Update: Maryland Punters Shut Out by Bovada

Update: Maryland Punters Shut Out by Bovada

Are other States affected as well

The latest industry news includes reports that Morris Mohawk's Bovada has shut-out registered players from the U.S. State of Maryland.

It has been specified in an e-mail from Bovada customer that they were advised:

"Due to continuing difficulties finding and maintaining acceptable payment options we have been forced to make the difficult decision to stop offering our services to residents of your state.

“As a resident of Maryland, your account has been closed to further activity.

“If you have any questions, we recommend you contact us by phone at 1-888-263-0000 at your earliest convenience and we will arrange for a payout via the most suitable method.

“We assure you we will do everything we can to service your state in the future.


“Bovada Customer Service"

Morris Mohawk bought out Bodog's U.S.-facing operation at the end of its contract term last year and re-launched as Bovada with .lv domain. At that time, the company spokesperson confirmed that it would no longer accept new sign-up's from Maryland, Utah, New York and Washington but that already-registered customers would be able to continue play. Yet, it seems that they are changing the policy, in Maryland, at least, as its players will no longer have access to Bovada's services.
