Bodog in Canada

In the past, Canadian poker players were off limits from Bodog out of fear of repercussions which could ensue from having a business operation in Canada which would not be protected from the Canadian government. However, it seems that this is no longer a fear they have. The Canadian Bodog URL will then take customer directly into the main site

First reported by, the popular poker forum said,

“For years Bodog was not able to provide service to you, but they are now! You can sign up an account today and take part in, among other things, the amazing overlay every Sunday in the $100k Guaranteed.”

Why the sudden change of heart in Canada? Well, while Bodog has sought to expand its operations into Europe, it also acquired the rights to operate in the Canadian market as well. Executives at Bodog believe that 2009-2010 will see a great surge in customer participation for the United States’ northern neighbors.

Interestingly, it seems that part of the Canadian “blockade” stemmed from questions about Bodog founder Calvin Ayre’s business practices. About 20 years ago, Ayre was allegedly involved in some short of marijuana trafficking situation and was subsequently served with a 20-year ban from business dealings in the country. As a result, Bodog was unable to set up camp there. Now that Ayre has sold his stake in the company and no longer is involved with daily operations, it has enabled the company to move north. The company has not yet released projections as to how much additional traffic they anticipate from the expansion.
