Bovada sounds like an expensive watch brand made especially for cows.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

Got it! I knew I'd heard the term Bovada before. When I was a real estate
person in Calif, we talked about Bovada ceilings in houses. Its a Mexican
domed ceiling made of tile or brick. Very common in kitchens and foyer's.
Its a style of architecture. Very common in Texas and Az.

Note:

Evenbob's two links are to photos of two different examples of Bovada Ceilings.

Kinda interesting.

The Wiz has a modern house in Vegas, wouldn't it be ironic
if he has a Bovada ceiling in it someplace?

I'm not sure if the ceiling of the entrance counts or not. It is high and round, but flat on top.

In Spanish architecure, a boveda is an arch. Boveda ceilings
are arched ceilings. It looks like bavada is the english way of
saying boveda.

Actually the ceiling style is bóveda possibly related to volvere (Latin) (鍍o turn). It is probably most easily translated as Vault, an English word that is ultimately derived from the same Latin word "volvere".

TIPOS DE BÓVEDAS:


En el caso de la bóveda de cañón, ya sea de medio punto o apuntada, ésta puede llevar marcada los arcos formeros, a los que se denomina "arcos fajones".

In the case of a barrel vaul, either pointed or semicircular, this it may be marked with the arco-formero, which is called "transverse ribs".

arco-formero, or literally "wall arch" is a curved architectural element (arc), which runs parallel to the longitudinal axis.

Back on topic, this might mean I make Bodog my new poker home now the field is smaller for WSOP seats etc, do you know if they have any plans for a major marketing drive? I would honestly say they are not even in the top 10 of sites people would name in terms of a casino/pokerroom/sportsbook etc. I used them for poker games back when I owned the poker league, and every sign up was a new one, nobody ever said they already had an account, which worked out good for me, but went to show their image here is a small one.
