Unfortunately, Bodog has gotten involved with a bad money-processing company called Nucharge. Nucharge was until a few days ago the only withdrawal option for U.S. Bodog players other than check, which can take a very lengthy time. Bodog promised Nucharge was the answer, but something has gone terribly wrong. Some users of Nucharge waited 2 months for ACH withdrawals to hit their bank accounts, then the money was returned to their Nucharge accounts. Nucharge originally claimed 3-5 business days for echeck withdrawals to hit their banks, then kept increasing the time span until it reached 20 days, then increased that to 20 business days. When the latest fiasco hit about 2 weeks ago, and all the money that was waiting in all the people's Nucharge accounts to hit their bank accounts came back to Nucharge, it was at first possible to re-deposit into Bodog, then close the Nucharge account, then ask for a check from Bodog, that's the route I took. But a couple days later, that option was closed off. The option many people took was to ask for a bank wire withdrawal (as opposed to the ACH method), which had a modest fee, but was only supposed to take a week or so, but now the word from every single person I've heard of who've tried that method are still waiting, some as many as 15 days and still nothing. It smells like a huge scam to me, but Bodog continues to claim that this problem is only a temporary technical problem. Bodog has taken the Nucharge option off the site as both a deposit or withdrawal option resulting in possibly hundreds of thousands or maybe millions of dollars that folks have stuck in Nucharge. Many report they can't even log into their accounts. Many have 4 or 5K stuck, one user reports 45K stuck in Nucharge. If Nucharge is a scam operation, there's no reason to think Bodog is part of the scam, but it makes me wonder, could it be possible? Could Bodog and Nucharge be one and the same company? I hope not.

All good for me. I like this site. Not sure about any of the issues surrounding US players but I'd say most of the players I play on there are US based.

My Bodog rep has informed me Nucharge and Bodog are totally seperate companies and run by different people.

I HAVE SPENT THE AFTERNOON TRYING TO PLAY THERE.

:angel: :joyman: Don't know what is up with their software, but I downloaded it from here just like the post said. I even got a $5 real money credit to play with (not $10 as stated). But everytime I tried to register in a tourney I got a screen to re-enter all my info, over and over and over again. Whats up with that site???:eek: :confused:

Just played my first card chat $100 freeroll there today, cashed pretty good considering I had to leave 2 hours into the game... wonder what would have happend if I'd been able to stick around and play! Took that money into a cash game and trippled it in under an hour.

Good luck guys,

the bad:

1. No chat for railbirds so forget about posting an "I'm doing good come watch" thread here.
2. No player to player transfer. So if you want to trade someone x dollars on FT for x dollars on BD, forget it.
3. Beyond horrible players = increased variance (and increased profit!), but you have to be able to emotionally/psychologically handle the beats.

The pros:

1. "Beginner" sngs, where the prize pool is very flat and the top five of nine get something.
2. Good sports book, if you bet on things like football (or mma and NHL)...
3. Horrible players (but see above caveat).
4. Friday cardschat game at 5pm EST.

I have never had a problem with them.The 1rst time I withdrew my check took 6 weeks to arrive.Then again they did say it would take an average of 30 business days.The second time It only took about a week(was the week before Thanksgiving).

One great thing about them is you can use a credit or debit card(as I did)and you don't have to use a "middle man" company.The bank statement I received said :$20 debit for "flowers inc.",or something like that.

As far as the quality of players go you can't get much worse(at the low levels I play at).If I can beat these games,anyone who is a slightly above average player or better should have no problem.

Customer service is spectacular.They have to be the best in the business from what I've seen.

AG mentioned the sportsbook,which is sweet.I love to bet NFL(although it kills my BR sometimes:))for fun.Also if ya like to gamble their casino games are very cool.

Anyway I give Bodog a big thumbsup.

Bodog is far and away my preferred site for poker. My wife LOVES the Casino (video poker games). She actually hit a RF on 25 cent video poker several months ago and won $1000 (we cashed that out). Since then she fritters away my freeroll winnings on 5 cent video poker but hey...we have FUN on Bodog. Also customer support by phone is without a doubt the BEST of any site I know.

I feel your pain! $3 here in the first time I played the $500 guaranteed on there. Luckily it runs twice a day (can only play the evening edition tho) so I'm anxiously awaiting a new cash ;). Ow yeah ofcourse the CC freeroll on Wednesday helps !

+1 My old Frankenstein gets chunky slow on Bodog. Not so on FullTilt or Stars. I can't do anything else but play on Bodog if I want decent performance out of it.

I'd be getting in far more trouble with a bank statement that said 'flowers inc' than 'wild supa-loose gambling' :eek:

In your other thread you said you just deposited there.
Why are you spamming all the BD threads on this site?!?
