Bodog's Canadian franchise issued a statement which reassured players that the U.S. Justice Department's seizure of Bodog's .com domain will have no effect on its operations.
The statement read: "You may have read some sensationalist headlines about the Bodog brand recently but we wanted to let you know that the issues being talked about only relate to the domain Bodog.com and its historic operations in the US .
"Bodog.ca has never accepted a wager on its website from anyone resident in the US . It is operated by Bodog Europe pursuant to an Antiguan licence and is not in any way associated with the domain bodog.com or its prior operations.
"As a Canadian customer we would like to assure you that Bodog.ca has not been affected by recent actions. As far as we are concerned it is very much business as usual and we hope you continue to enjoy the site."
Bodog's Canadian website is licensed in Antigua and is managed by Bodog Europe.
