    Default Bodog.com domain reportedly seized by U.S. authorities

    Big news (we think) coming out this afternoon as it appears that www.bodog.com has been seized by U.S. authorities. Full story by GPWA Aaron ...

    Bodog.com domain reportedly seized by U.S. authorities
    16 October 2014

    By Aaron Todd

    Bodog founder Calvin Ayre, who for years allowed U.S. gamblers to make online bets on sports, casino games and poker despite the fact that U.S. authorities maintained its actions were illegal, has been targeted for extradition by U.S. authorities, according to a recent story by The Calgary Herald.

    Last week, the U.S. District Court in Maryland said in a filing that a deal had been reached with Ayre and other Bodog executives in July, but was not finalized, and as a result, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Kay is "pursuing extradition."


    Ayre, along with James Philip, David Ferguson and Derrick Maloney, have been accused violating the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act for accepting money from U.S. gamblers to make bets after the law was passed in 2006.


    <i>A previous version of this story stated that U.S. authorities had recently seized the Bodog.com domain. That seizure actually occurred in 2012</i>.
