    I know I'm bumping a very old thread here, but I don't think this post was factually correct. It certainly is not correct at this time... at least not technically speaking.

    Given this post was in 2011, I can only assume it was post "Black Friday," which in the online poker world means something totally different than it does to most people. For us, on April 15th 2011, the US Department of Justice shut down the three largest offshore US-friendly poker sites. After this, there was a brief panic and many other operators pulled out of the market (this would include their casino and sportsbetting products as they were all marketed simultaneously).

    It is true that "Bodog" pulled out of the US market, and instead decided to only service Canada with the Bodog brand. But that wasn't their only brand. Shortly after BF, the "Bovada" brand opened. It serviced the US poker market exclusively, also offering SB+C. It stayed in operation servicing US clients until late 2016 when it "sold" its poker operations to a new name brand "Ignition Casino." Bovada still services the US market, but only for SB+C. Ignition is C+P but no sports betting.
