Default Bodog's new blackjack games

Bodog now offers single and double-deck games. But I doubt they are profitable--even with a sign-up bonus.
This online casino is to leave the US market at the end of the year.

It would depend solely on th sign-up bonus amount and play requirement, right? zg

Default Not positive EV

The sign-up bonus and play through requirements do not add up to positive EV at Bodog.
I think the lucrative sing-up promos online are a thing of the past. This may change for American players in the future if online casinos are regulated in the US.

Yep the ship has sailed. There are still a few good promos to snap up but nothing like the past. Even if online casinos are regulated in the states in the future- you can imagine any good start up promos will be milked flat in the first month- if they even last that long.

Unfortunately Online casinos have caught on and even some positive ev promotions are barely worth doing because they are so small!! Not to mention lower HE games are normally excluded.

There are some rather ok live BJ bonuses online- if you don`t mind the super slow play. A few of them have pretty good EV in fact. You can even count cards to a certain extent despite the fact there is normally 50% pen and a few burn cards. High counts are pretty rare though. Plus you have to deal with constant disconnections, slow servers etc.

There are still some reasonable monthlies to grind. Have you tries gala and 32 red? Both have small subs but generally easy to wager through (tiny bets).
