Bovada Confirms No Block From Comcast

BovadaRecent reports that Internet service provider Comcast had been blocking its customers from logging on to Bovada have proven erroneous.

U.S. Bovada players took to online poker forums such as 2 + 2 beginning a few days ago with reports of connectivity problems and the central theme of users appeared to be as customers of Comcast, the largest Internet provider in the country. What made the situation even more baffling was that other Comcast users within the U.S. reported no problems whatsoever.

At the time, a Bovada official tweeted confirmation that some players were indeed having problems logging on, but could not confirm that the issues were restricted to Comcast users. Comcast has kindly informed concerned users via email that Comcast is not blocking that [Bovada] or any other site and would not do so.

Bovada has since confirmed via Twitter that the issues were technical in nature and that the problems experienced by certain players would be resolved shortly. This has been a great relief to players who had shuddered at the thought of perhaps being locked out of the top U.S.-facing online poker room.

Bovada continues to outpace the competition with almost four times as many players as the next most popular online poker choice among Americans. Players are evidently attracted to Bovada’s anonymous player format that keeps sharks out by eliminating bum-hunting and poker-tracking software.

A 100% up to $1,000 deposit bonus is available to first-time depositors that allows a full 60 days to clear. Multi-tabling is allowed, but is limited to four open tables simultaneously in an effort to exclude the grinders who prefer reaching double digits in multi-table action.

For tournament players, Bovada offers a huge assortment of selections in varying game types and buy-ins, guaranteeing something for everybody from low-stakes players to those with a somewhat larger bankroll. New tourneys are starting constantly and many allow late registration beyond one hour, permitting savvy players an opportunity to check out the field, stack sizes and payouts available before entering.

Comcast users who may have been leery of making that first deposit at Bovada due to the recent scare that turned out to be nothing but a mild technical glitch can rest assured that all systems are go at [geolink href=””]Bovada Poker[/geolink]. With cashout time frames and reliability among the best in the business, it is no wonder that Bovada remains the top choice of players within the U.S.
