UK poker players will have to do without one poker site when the newly redeveloped Bodog website is re-launched in the United Kingdom. The online gambling company have decided to remove both the highly popular online poker section of their site and the sports betting section from their UK brand to focus on a purely online casino and live dealer casino game experience.
Continued increase in the popularity of live dealer games means that the newly improved live dealer format at Bodog UK will certainly attract the vast number of players turning to live versions of classic games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat. Although Bodog UK have now removed poker and sports betting from their line up, there is potential for these to return to the online gambling site’s game setup in the future.
Online poker is a major business in the UK with a large number of professional and recreational gamers enjoying the world’s biggest card game. For many, it may be seen as a risk for Bodog to remove poker for their UK members as there will always be an interest in poker but if they can develop one of the best possible online casinos and live dealer casinos around then it could become a success.
Players with Bodog have been told that they will be allowed to cash in their real money accounts following the re-launch should they not feel the new site can match their online gambling needs. The new developments to the site coincide with a change in ownership of the UK brand. For online poker players with Bodog, there are of course a number of alternative online sites for poker available. It will certainly be a blow to the poker players with Bodog.co.uk who used to enjoy the poker services provided by the UK brand.
