Bodog India Betting Options
Cricket is considered the biggest religion in the country of 1.3 billion and Bodog India will cover domestic and international cricket matches to give legions of fans the opportunity to place bets on their favourite cricket matches.
Bodog India will also cover a wide range of sports such as boxing, football, tennis and MMA. All of the popular tournaments will be covered in-depth with a wide range of sports bets being made available. The 2018 FIFA World Cup, Grand Slam tournaments, UEFA Champions League and the 2019 World Cup will all be covered.
Indian punters will be happy to know that the sports betting odds for cricket matches are highly favourable when compared to most of the other sports betting websites out there.
Bodog India’s strength also lies in the relatively wide range of video slots that provide generous prizes. The line-up is also changed on a regular basis so players always have something new to look forward to. The current line-up includes Bird of Thunder, Indian Catcher, Cake Valley, Mystic Fortune, Roman Empire, Super Twister, and Sparta.
In most of the online slot games featured in Bodog India, three or more like symbols trigger the scatter feature. The coin bet ranges from 0.01 to 10, the lines range from 1 to 50, and the bet level ranges from 1 to 10. There’s also an autoplay feature available.
Live Dealer Casino
Indian players who want a little more excitement can head over to the live dealer casino and get to interact with a human dealer and real players. For now, there are no live dealer games at Bodog India although the site advertises that these are coming soon.
Indian players will have the option to access Bodog India via their smartphones and tables. Bodog has customized its sports betting and slot games to be compatible with mobile phones to make it easy for Indian players to play while on the go.
Bodog India Bonuses
As soon as you sign up, you will receive a registration no deposit bonus of ₹10,000; there’s no deposit necessary. You will receive this no deposit welcome bonus in parts – ₹2,000 each day for the first five days after opening an account. You can use this bonus amount to play games at Bodog India but do keep in mind that the welcome bonus is subject to terms and conditions. Some of the things that you will have to keep in mind is that there is a 25x rollover before withdrawal, deadline when the bonus expires and that it cannot be used for sports betting.
Note: Bodog India plans to remove this bonus very soon.
Four Match Deposit Bonuses
If you are reading this review and find that the no deposit bonus has been removed, you can still avail a number of exciting match deposit bonuses. Bodog India is giving away up to 2 Lakh Indian rupees once again subject to terms and conditions.
When you make your first deposit, you will get a 100% match deposit bonus of up to ₹50,000. On your second deposit, you will get 25% bonus to ₹25,000 followed by a 50% bonus up to ₹50,000 (third deposit) and 75% bonus up to ₹75,000 (fourth deposit).
Plus, if you deposit within a week after opening an account, you will get a jackpot surprise bonus of ₹1,000,000. All deposit bonuses are credited to your account and can be used to play casino games except for sports betting. You can only withdraw the bonuses and their related winnings after 25x rollover and these will expire after 30 days, among other terms.
The referral bonus is fair in comparison with other betting sites. You will get ₹2,000 with each referral and the said amount will be valid for 10 days after your friend has opened an account. Your friend in return will get a ₹10,000 registration bonus and an additional ₹2,000 as counterpart referral bonus.
The daily surprise bonus provides players with the opportunity to win up to 40% of their wallet balance. While it sounds tempting, it isn’t in reality – and I have to say that I’m not a fan of this feature and I’m not even sure if it will last. For one thing, you have to play at least ₹100,000 ($2,200) worth of games in a 24 hour period to qualify for the bonus.
The weekly cashback is a much more exciting option compared to the surprise bonus. Bodog India gives up to 10% of weekly losses as a bonus so you’re still winning even when you’re losing – to some extent. You should play at least ₹10,000 worth of games during the week to qualify for the cashback.
Since Bodog India is new to the market, there is no VIP or Loyalty bonus program in place as of now. Check back as Bodog India could soon launch a VIP program for its loyal customers.
Indian players will have a variety of banking options to choose from. Bodog India promises fast and guaranteed payouts but do keep in mind that the number of days from request to payout depends on the type of method used. The average time frame for withdrawals tends to be around 7 days.
The list of banking options include:
- AstroPay Card
- Credit cards (Visa / Mastercard)
- Debit cards (Visa / Mastercard)
- Ecobanq (Payout via bank transfers)
- Bitcoin (BTC and BCH) deposits and withdrawals will be available soon.
There is currently no limit set on the withdrawal amount and players will be allowed to withdraw all of their funds – if they so desire. Players may be subjected to fraud screening requirements which is not a very complicated process. Players must ensure they meet all the terms and conditions such as fulfilling the wagering requirements before trying to make a withdrawal, or their withdrawals might be rejected.
Bodog India encourages its players to adopt responsible gaming practices and implements effective measures in this regard. The measures include age verification before opening an account, parental control recommendations, and referrals to resources for people at risk for compulsive gambling. Players that violate the site’s terms and conditions related to responsible gaming will also be penalized, usually by account closure.
