Beginning today, online poker players living in Canada can sign up and play through the iconic Bodog brand by accessing a new site launched especially for them at Bodog.ca.
Bodog previously did not officially accept players from the North American nation but the launch of Bodog.ca coincides with the brand's 15th anniversary.
"The Bodog brand is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, an absolutely remarkable pedigree and testament to its enduring values in an industry that quickly kills off mediocrity," read a statement from Bodog.
"The brand has gone through quite an evolution during that long history and Bodog Europe is looking forward to carrying the torch forward for at least another 15 years of world-class customer service, unbeatable promotions and, above all, fun."
Players at Bodog.ca will be able to take advantage of the site's sportsbook and casino, which features some 80 games. In addition, the site hosts its regular Sunday $100,000 Guaranteed tournament every weekend with a buy-in of $162 offering a top prize of $25,000. For every poker player that earns at least 2,000 points in a calendar month, Bodog.ca will double the total. Competitors will then be able to exchange these points for cash or use them to buy into tournaments.
Bodog.ca is owned by Bodog Europe, which is regulated and licensed by the jurisdiction of Antigua.
"We're extremely excited to be able to bring the unique Bodog experience to Canadian players," said Keith McDonnell, Managing Director for Bodog Europe.
"Canadians are passionate sports fans and are extremely savvy consumers. The Bodog brand is known world over for its unmatched customer service and, here at Bodog Europe, we put the player's experience and entertainment ahead of all else."
