Anonymous Tables

Start with a clean slate every time you sit down at one of our tables. This feature allows Bovada players to enjoy online poker with total anonymity, meaning that when you sit down at a table, your opponents won’t know who you are, what your poker style is, or what you’re capable of doing. With every new game, our anonymous tables feature creates an equal playing field for everyone, just like in a live casino. Read more about our Anonymous Tables.
