Competition at this room can be seen as fairly weak with many of the low limit tables seeing a flop percentage of 55%. This can be attributed to the casino and sports booking rooms within the same client and players testing out the poker room. As such, you should expect to see many beginners at the tables, making the games beatable.
Bodog is using Proprietary Software licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. The software is well above par as far as playability and functionality goes. The lobby has an easy to use layout with a "Quick Seat" to make game selection easy. It also features your standard game statistic information such as flop percentage, average hands played per hour which with Bodog can range up to 120, as well as average pot size.
