Bovada Cited In The Wall Street Journal

5 replies • Last post

So much for sites like Bovada not having any legitimacy, I guess:

I got my issue of the Wall Street Journal today and saw that the paper had cited a prop bet listed by Bovada in its paper.

I thought it was awesome to see it, so I took a pic and thought I'd show you guys.

Neat, to see some of our online casinos getting some press, eh?

Awesome, 'Slim! Thanks for sharing that, and I agree it is cool.

I heard of "Bodog" WAY before I ever came here and entered the world of online gambling. How long have they been around? And did they start with just sports or just poker or something?

You now have me more interested in the history of this casino.

Yes its funny that the WSJ is referring to a supposedly "illegal" site like that.

The Bodog company has been around since 1994 but they weren't in gambling at first. Calvin Ayre likes to get his fingers into a lot of pies - apparently they even have a coffee operation in The Philippines now.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I've been following Ayre through his Facebook and website. The guy is definitely an attention hound; for better or worse. He definitely offers an interesting perspective on things though, that is for sure.
