Now lets look at Bovada’s promotions, craps game and banking options.

Bovada Deposit Bonus

Bovada has two different game-specific deposit bonuses:

  • Slots – This is a 100% match bonus up to $500. For example, if you deposit $225, you will receive $225 in bonus money. This bonus has a 50x rollover and is for slots games only.
  • Table Games – The tables game bonus is for blackjack and video poker players. This bonus is a 100% match up to $200 and has an 80x rollover requirement.

Unfortunately, craps players cannot redeem either bonus.

Other Promotions for Craps Players

There are two promotion that craps player can participate in. One is Bovada’s Casino Benefits. The other is their refer-a-friend program.

The Casino Benefits is a points based program. Points are given to you for every $10 that you wager. The number of points you receive per $10 depends on the games you play (craps is 2 points). For every 100 points you earn you will receive $1 in casino chips.

Bovada pays players for their points every Friday. You need a minimum of 500 points ($5) to receive a payment, otherwise your points will rollover to the next week.

The second promotion is a refer-a-friend bonus. Every time you send someone to Bovada and they make a deposit, you can earn up to $100. You can send as many friends as you like. The only stipulation is that the bonus has a 20x rollover (for casino games) requirement before you can request a withdrawal.

Bovada Craps

Play Craps at Bovada.lv

Bovada’s craps game is available in both the instant play version and the download. I tried the download version several times, but kept running into errors. I couldn’t download the craps game. So I recommend sticking to the instant play version. Even if you’re using a PC.

The craps game can be played for free or with real money. The real money table limits are $1 to $1,000.

The instant play software worked very well for me (unlike the download). The game was fast. It looks good too. I especially liked the help feature. It takes you by the hand and shows you how to use the software. So if you’re not familiar with Bovada (it’s as straightforward as it gets), the help feature will get you up to speed quickly.

And if you ever want a change of pace, Bovada has over 265 casino games, a poker room and sportsbook. So there are plenty of opportunities for a change of scenery.

Bovada Banking Options

Bovada’s deposit options include credit card, money transfer and Rapid Transfer.

Withdrawal options include check (by courier) and Rapid Transfer.
