Reason I like Bovada #2:

Good Odds

Bovada online casino ad

The odds are always against you when you gamble, so it pays to play at a casino that offers good odds.  I spent quite a bit of time looking for an online casino with better-than-average odds, and the result is Bovada.  Let me first tell you about the competition, though.

Most online casinos are too greedy when setting the odds on their games.  They think they'll make more money by setting the games tighter, so the player has less chance of winning, but they're wrong.&nsbp; Most gamblers eventually gamble away all their playing budget anyway.  They're going to lose the same amount of money no matter what, the only question is how long it takes them to do so.  And when they play at a tight casino and lose quickly, they're less likely to return.

A casino which offers good odds will make just as much money as a tight casino, because the players will usually gamble away whatever they deposit anyway, no matter what the odds.  The only difference is that with better odds, they'll get to play longer before they go bust.  And that means they had more fun in the process, and they're more likely to return.

Bovada is one of they few casinos that understands this.  They offer games with good odds, knowing that if your money lasts longer, you'll be a happier, loyal customer.  Among their offerings are:

  • Two blackjack games returning over 99.8%
  • Single-0 roulette
  • Full-pay Jacks or Better (99.54%)
  • Nine other video poker games returning over 99%

You don't have to play at Bovada, but wherever you play, make sure they offer odds at least this good!

Privacy Policy

Last Update: August 2017

VegasClick generally does not collect any personally identifiable information through the website. Hence, this privacy policy is pretty short.

Contacting me by email.  Visitors who message me through the Contact page supply their email address (though it's possible to use a fake one).  Those messages go straight to my own email account; I don't maintain a database of names or addresses of visitors who contact me.  If you send me a particularly ridiculous message I might publish it to make fun of you.

Drawings & Contests.  About a decade ago I ran some drawings and contests, and might do so again in the future.  Generally for these events the only personally-identifiable information required for entry is an email address so I can contact you if you win.  If the prize is something I need to postal-mail to you, then at that time I'll also need a name and mailing address.  Winners are identified publicly by first name and last initial, or by full name if you agree, and by city if you agree.

Email newsletters.  I used to send out newsletters by email, and then publish them on the site.  I no longer do so, but might do so again in the future.  Users submitted their email addresses via a web form in order to sign up for the newsletter, and could unsubscribe easily at any time.  I still have the old list of subscribers.  If I ever sell the site, I will not sell the subscriber list.  The only thing I can think that would cause me to divulge the subscriber list is a court order.

Log data.  Like just about every website on the Internet, my server records log data about visits, with a line listing things like the IP address of the visitor, what file from my server was requested, the date and time of the request, and the browser the visitor is using.  This lets me see things like how many people visit the site and what pages are the most popular.  In general, I can't really identify any individual user from this information.  If you send me an email message about a certain article I could theoretically look through the logfiles and see if you were the only one who looked at that page in the last couple of hours, but then what could I possibly do with the fact that I saw what browser you used? I don't think there's a black market in Mexico for information about what browser someone used to access a website.

Geolocation.  I use geolocation software to figure out what country you're browsing from, to show you ads revelant to your country.  I don't save this information and I can't identify you with it anyway.

Cookies.  Most websites you visit tell your web browser to store some small files on your local computer.  These are typically used for such things as storing preferences and identifying you when you visit again so you don't have to log in again.  Some sites also use them for tracking user behavior for advertising purposes.  VegasClick doesn't currently use cookies, but might start using them to remember users' preferences to enhance the user experience.
