Some of the biggest drawbacks of Bodog are that it isn’t supported with newer versions of poker tracking software nor is rakeback offered.
An even bigger drawback for hardcore grinders is that they will only be able to multi-table up to 3 tables.
The biggest positives going for Bodog, however, are the fact that there is always action no matter the time of day, and games are full of action. Bodog is well known for its juicy games and it’s hard to pass this up on Bodog!
