In an anticipated move that was nowhere near anonymous, Bodog has formally announced its rebranding to Bovada for United States players.

Launching of the new site, known as, commenced on Dec. 14. The rebranding had actually been announced in July and was scheduled to become effective to start the new year in Jan. 2012, but, apparently, Bodog initiated the rebranding a couple weeks ahead of schedule. The Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (MMGG), the Bodog licensee in the U.S. since 2006, will operate the site from here on out.

The Bodog brand is confident MMGG’s customer account information and funds will continue to remain safe and secure, as it has done since MMGG entered its original agreement with the Bodog Brand in 2006 and we would like to wish MMGG the greatest success in its new venture,” a Bodog statement said.

American residents can no longer access or any Bodog branded site. Accounts for current U.S. players were transferred to the Bovada website automatically and players are able to access the site via their existing account information and password, according to a Bodog press release.

The following email was sent to U.S. players by Bovada:

The name Bovada is said to be derived from a combination of Bodog and Nevada. If you’re a Bodog Bovada player and you have a pending withdrawal request, that request will be processed in the same way and in the same time frame as prior to the rebranding. Hand histories remain intact, as do methods of deposit.

Bovada is currently offering a generous first-time deposit Bovada Poker bonus of 100% up to $1,000 and allows 60 days to clear the huge bonus. If you’re a U.S. player still looking for a new site on which to play, now would be a good time to deposit at the newly rebranded Bovada Poker.
