Bovada to Replace Bodog Brand in US

01/20/2012

Following the passing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, the online casino brand Bodog was forced to pull back its US operations.  The UIGEA had disastrous effects on the online gaming industry in America a brought down many online casino companies.  Nonetheless, Canadian-based Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (MMGG) licensed Calvin Ayre’s brand.  MMGG used the Bodog brand in order to promote and market their other online services in North America. 

 

Now, the group has recently released a statement via CEO Alwyn Morris that the company is disassociating from the Bodog brand name and all customers will be transferred to their new site.  Ayre also released a statement detailing the cessation of the licensing of the Bodog brand by the MMG Group.  Since Bodog has received licensing to operate in the UK, this essentially means that Bodog will operate exclusively in the UK and will have no presence in the US.  Consequently Bodog will not be renewing its license with MMGG.

 

Players operating out of the US will not be able to access bodog.eu or its partner websites anymore.  MMGG will be launching a new brand in 2012, Bovada, under license of the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.  For players, the change is not significant.  In stead of logging into bodog.eu, they will be logging into bovada.lv.  The casino will still be under the ownership of MMGG and is still operated by MMGG.  MMGG’s hope is that the new bovada brand will become a top online casino.  Players’ hope is that the new launch will be accompanied by some free play casino bonuses.
