Bodog seeks British license

(UK).- Bodog, one of the world's largest online gambling groups, has applied for an operating license for the UK despite allegations that its substantial activities in the US are criminal.


n an interview with the Guardian, Bodog's founder and boss, Calvin Ayre, rejected such allegations, saying: "We have licenses 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 licenses would not necessarily be used to take British bets. He pointed out that Bodog already had an Antiguan license, which it is using to establish a foothold in Europe.
