Bodog Race Book Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Calvin Edward Ayre (born May 25, 1961, in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan) is a Canadian-Antiguan entrepreneur based in Antigua and Barbuda, and the founder of the Ayre Group and Bodog entertainment brand. In 2000, Ayre launched online gambling company Bodog, the success of which made him a billionaire. Ayre's notoriety increased in the mid-2000s as online gaming's popularity surged, landing him on the cover of Forbes magazine's 2006 annual Billionaires edition and Star magazine's "Most Eligible Billionaire Bachelors" list in late 2007.
The Associated Press reported: "The gambling website Bodog has been shut down and four Canadians indicted, including founder Calvin Ayre, for illegal gambling that generated more than $100 million in winnings, U.S. federal prosecutors say. The website's domain name was seized Monday and the indictments, which were returned Feb. 22, were unveiled Tuesday in Baltimore, prosecutors said. The indictments follow federal prosecutions last year of three of the biggest websites involved in online poker. More than 75 company bank accounts in 14 countries have been frozen, and authorities are seeking $3 billion in fines and restitution, in that investigation. In addition to the 50-year-old Ayre, who was born in Lloydminster, Sask., prosecutors say the indictment names website operators James Philip, David Ferguson and Derrick Maloney. Gamblers in Maryland and elsewhere were sent at least $100 million by wire and cheques from 2005 to 2012, the U.S. Attorney's office said, adding Bodog conducted a $42-million advertising campaign between 2005 and 2008 to attract gamblers to the Bodog.com website."
