Prevention of Underage Gambling
Bovada requires all users to be 16 years of age or older. All users must confirm their age and certify that they are of legal age to gamble prior to opening an account. Bovada actively monitors for underage accounts and uses a variety of tools to verify information. Bovada never engages in advertising directed at minors.
