In previous reports we noted the development of a poker room using MicroPower software by Bodog.com, and this week the high profile sportsbook and casino launched the new venture.
"Our team has been working around the clock to ensure that the product we have just launched is nothing short of the best available poker product on the market today," said Rob Gillespie, President of Bodog.com.
Bodog Poker has a diverse offering of the popular poker games currently on the market. Players can enter into games ranging from Hold 'Em, Omaha, Omaha High Low, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud High Low and 5 Card Stud. Along with the range of games Bodog is offering several tournaments with a number prizes available to the winners. Included in these is the "Kickoff Classic" where players will vie for a chance to win a US $25,000 seat at the World Poker Tour Championships.
Bodog has added a number of features to the poker offering, many of which are unique to Bodog Poker. For example, the company claims that the site's "total community environment" is unique. All players will be able to build detailed player profiles and upload unique player images to personalize their experience. Players who win satellite tournaments will go on to compete in a WPT event, and become a part of "Team Bodog".
Bodog has also added a staff of knowledgeable poker enthusiasts to the already world class group of customer service staff. Bodog Poker players will have a direct toll-free line to the poker customer service staff to answer any and all questions about the game, how to get started, or sign up for their account.
"By building our own poker system...players will feel safe using a system that they have trusted for years, and allows us to add and modify to our system according to player comments," said Gillespie.
