Bodog Canada Casino News Alert

Just in time for Christmas and going into 2014 we have a Bodog Canada Casino news alert for Canadian online casino players.

A Brief Overview of the Bodog Casino:

Establishment of the US online casino Bodog dates back to 1994, and then launched into Canada in 2008 courtesy of the enigmatic entrepreneur Calvin Ayre. A software house that initiated business with rather humble beginnings, is today one arm of a full online gambling business that boasts a unique lifestyle brand. Players enjoy engaging in poker and place bets on a number of sporting events, including horse racing.

This quick Bodog review familiarizes you with some the company’s more recent history, which is somewhat of a colorful tale, complete with “patent trolling” battles with the US and Canadian government.

The UIGEA legislation, passed in 2006, saw Ayre selling the Bodog business to an entity known as the Morris Mohawk gaming group based out of Canada, after which he went into a side business – Bodog Brand. At the time, Ayre claimed to have no interest whatsoever in the Bodog US online casino business and had his resources pooled into the brand licensing and marketing side business he had going.

However, during the same year, a $46 million dispute involving 1st Technology LLC saw a default judgment being awarded against Bodog, as its domain name was revoked. Even though the case was settled out of court eventually, Bodog bookies were deprived of funds amounting to $24 million, courtesy of the US government with little influence from the Canadian government.

In February 2012, the Canadian and US authorities indicted Ayre, leading to seizure of the Bodog domain yet again. The popularity of the US and Canada online casino brand however, seems almost completely unfazed owing to these turn of events.

As anybody in the industry will attest to, it continues to be business as usual at the Bodog Canada online casino for 2014.
