Can I Play on Bovada From Florida?

The Bovada website (formerly known as Bodog) is accessible to those living in the state of Florida.  While Bovada is good, there are better options available like BetOnline, in business since 1999 and offering payouts in hours and a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000)

Back in May the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to abolish decades long prohibition against sports betting.  Sites like Bovada have long operated in the U.S., claiming that, because they are legal and licensed in the jurisdiction from which they operate in, their website is NOT illegal in states that do not explicitly deem Web gambling illegal.  Until now only Washington State has done so and Bovada opted to exit that jurisdiction as a result.

Florida does not have any sportsbooks in state.  That's not likely to happen any time soon after a referendum passed that will give voters the power to decide on gambling expansion in the state.  For now gamblers will have to rely on offshore sports betting and casino sites.

Horse racing, we would note, is very popular in the state.  Bets are taken at all of Florida's horse racing facilities.  Both U.S.-based and internationally licensed gambling firms take wagers on horse racing from state residents.

Poker rooms are also plentiful.  Bovada, Americas Cardroom, Global and a few others do accept customers from Florida but none of the state's card rooms offer their own real money poker sites.
