Calvin Ayre, founder and CEO of Bodog.com, has issued a statement reassuring Bodog.com players that business will continue as usual despite the glaring legal ramifications of the new anti-gambling measure that was passed in U.S. Congress Sept. 30.
In a strongly worded statement, Ayre asserted that Bodog.com is well poised not only to absorb any changes in the legal landscape of online gambling in the United States, but also to continue to provide high quality service to its players worldwide.
"It will likely take months to fully understand what, if any, ramifications there are from this new law," said Ayre. "Our customers may take comfort in knowing that Bodog.com is structured in such a way that we're well situated to adapt to any changes in any legal environment."
"We are poised to continue our spectacular growth in the online gaming and digital entertainment space and if anything, the pending legislation has validated our broad-based digital entertainment model and our decision to stay private," he continued. "We see the future as very positive for Bodog.com."
