Bodog seeking U.K. license

24 Sep 2008

LONDON -- As reported by The Guardian: "Bodog, one of the world's largest and most controversial online gambling groups, has applied for an operating licence for the UK despite allegations that its substantial activities in the US are criminal.

"In an interview with the Guardian, Bodog's founder and boss, Calvin Ayre, rejected such allegations, saying: "We have licences from sovereign governments to do what we do - that's how it works on every other industry on the planet." Ayre admitted Bodog took bets from US customers but claimed the company did not "operate" there.

"Bodog, which is expanding its European operations, is among the few internet gambling groups to have continued taking bets from US customers after the enactment there in 2006 of the Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act...

"Ayre said UK licences would not necessarily be used to take British bets. He pointed out that Bodog already had an Antiguan licence, which it is using to establish a foothold in Europe.
