Bodog Loses it’s “Face”
International billionaire playboy founder of Bodog, Calvin Ayre, will retire from his largely ceremonial role as the face of Bodog, and will no longer be involved in Bodog’s operations.

You Could See This One Coming
The handwriting’s been on the wall for a while. In mid 2007 he successfully transferred ownership of the Bodog brand in North America to the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group, and then put a European executive team that is already managing Bodog Europe and Africa, and plans to further expand to Latin America.
The Morris Mohawk Gaming Group, led by Olympic Gold medalist, Order of Canada recipient and First Nations’ leader Alwyn Morris, is located in the Kahnawake territory, just outside Montreal, and is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission to offer gaming services from Kahnawake to users worldwide.
Calvin Will be Dipping His Feet in Antigua’s Warm Waters
Ayre will be taking some time to himself in his home in Antigua and will continue to support charitable opportunities through the Calvin Ayre Foundation.

Ayre noted that, “While it has been great fun to live my life in front of the world’s cameras and online though my blog, I am looking forward to a more private and meaningful period of giving back and working to support the Calvin Ayre Foundation.”
