Poker site Bodog is preparing for a comeback by targeting the Latin American market. According to a press release from Feb 9, Bodog is going to offer recreational online poker in Brazil and Mexico.
The move is part of the network’s effort to rise to fame again after its decline following legislatory issues in the U.S. Bodog’s new owners, Hong Kong-based consortium PaiWangLuo, have announced their intention to expand to 14 more countries following successful performance in Brazil and Mexico.
The company’s official website states that the revamped poker network will offer three different poker rooms and “state-of-the-art game play”. What is more, it will be aimed at a wider audience by using software appropriate for novices and recreational players.
Back in 2009, then Vice President of Bodog Jonas Odman made changes to the site such as modifying rake distribution, limiting tournament prizes and introducing anonymity of players. That way Bodog was made more attractive to amateurs than professionals so it may as well now pick up where it left off and make its name as the preferred provider of recreational services in Latin America.
