"I've tried betting with several different racebooks, but after trying Bovada I won't go anywhere else!" -J. Cronson
Wagering Rebates – Louisiana players get 3% back on straight win, place and show wagers and 5% back on all exotic wagers like exactas, trifectas and superfectas.
Free and Fast Payouts – Bovada Racebook offers fast payouts so that Louisiana players don’t have to wait too long to get their profits and there’s also a monthly free payout program, which Louisiana players can take advantage of.
24-Hour Customer Service – Bovada Racebook Customer Service is on the horseplayers’ schedule. They’re open 24-Hours, 7 days a week, to help Louisiana horseplayers make a deposit or withdrawal, listen to suggestions to help them improve, or answer any other questions that they might have.
Review of Horse Betting at Bovada Racebook
There are three criteria that we use when reviewing a racebook specifically for Louisiana horseplayers. The first is level of customer service. A racebooks customer service team has to be available to Louisiana players on those players schedules. The second criteria are fair and multiple deposit and payout options. The final criterion is thoroughbred horse betting odds. The odds offered have to be Louisiana race track odds and the payout limits have to be large enough to justify utilizing the racebook instead of going to a Louisiana race track.
Bovada Racebook Customer Service is available 24-hrs a day, 7 days a week. There are two ways to get a hold of Customer Service at Bovada. The first way is to send an email. All emails are answered within 4-hrs after Customer Service receives them. The other way is via Bovada’s toll-free number: 1-888-263-0000.
We actually called on Louisiana time, and it’s obvious to us that Bovada’s customer service team is fast, friendly, and not afraid to find an answer. We tested the 24-hr claim, hours after the Louisiana tracks ran their final race, Customer Service picked up and helped us.
Deposit & Payout Options
Bovada only accepts VISA for credit card deposits. Louisiana players can use Rapid Transfer or money transfer and Bovada picks up the fees at deposits of $300 or more. When it comes to payouts, Bovada has an excellent program. They offer a free payout per month up to $3,000. If players request anything beyond $3,000, they send checks up to $3,000 every 5 to 7 business days. Players are charged a fee for each check.
Louisiana players can request a payout via Rapid Transfer, but our suggestion is to withdrawal $3,000 per month for free.
Thoroughbred Horse Betting Odds
Bovada Racebook offers race track odds, but has limits regarding race payouts. We don’t have a problem with that because the max payouts for Louisiana race tracks are massive. You could win up to $30,000 per race at Louisiana Downs, and $15,000 per race at the Fairgrounds. There are betting limits for each specific race track category, but that’s not an issue to us.
A Bovada Racebook advantage is the 5% rebate on exotic wagers. Louisiana players know that putting together exotic wagering tickets, like trifectas and superfectas, takes a large investment. Getting 5% back on every losing exotic wager ticket can really help the bottom line.
