Bodog Founder Calvin Ayre on US 10 Most Wanted List

Calvin-Ayre-BodogCalvin Ayre, the founder of Bodog, is listed among the United States Immigrations and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Ten Most Wanted people.  His photo is listed among alleged drug and human traffickers, just to name a few.  His last known location, according to ICE, was Antigua, which does not seem willing to comply with a U.S. extradition request.

A synopsis reads:  A federal indictment was returned by the United States District Court of Maryland charging one business and four members of an online gambling and money laundering conspiracy on charges in violation of Title 18 U.S.C. 1955, Operating an Illegal Gambling Business and Title 18 U.S.C. 1956(a)(2)(A), Money Laundering. AYRE was one of the individuals indicted in this case.

Bodog is one of the online gambling websites that continues to offer online gambling services to residents of the US.  Just recently, a customer service centre located in the Philippines, was raised by local police and phone support has been offline for about a week, causing extra stress to players, though cash withdrawals apparently were unaffected.

Regulated online gambling in the meantime is being introduced in the United States on a state by state basis starting with Neveada, Delaware and New Jersey just last week.

Calvin Ayre is originally from Saskatchewan.

    From the most recent senate circus between the 2 most talked about Philippine Senators (Santiago vs. Enrile),
    the illegal online gambling operation owned by the fugitive Calvin Ayre, was once again in the limelight. Pls
    see article and and excerpt of the article where it was highlighted.

    “Illegal online gambling through the CEZA.

    Weeks ago cops raided the Makati call center of Canadian
    fugitive Calvin Edward Ayre, one of America’s ten most wanted.
    The operation, one of billionaire Ayre’s three huge offices in
    Makati and Quezon City, allegedly offered illegal online gambling
    to Filipinos and foreigners. Everything’s done via Internet, which
    recognizes no national boundaries. Ayre – a notorious media corruptor –
    has been fleeing U.S. feds and hiding in the Philippines for the past
    12 years. He functions domestically by virtue of a franchise from the
    CEZA-based Cagayan Entertainment & Leisure Corp. Santiago quoted
    columnist Ramon Tulfo as exposing the CEZA connection. Years back the
    CEZA also caused a stir when its jai-alai franchisee began accepting
    off-fronton bets nationwide. Only state-owned Pagcor owns a gaming
    franchise in the land. By what authority does the CEZA issue gaming
    licenses, and is Enrile linked to it? Interior Sec. Jesse Robredo was
    investigating just that when he died in a 2012 plane crash, says Justice
    Sec. Leila de Lima.”

    Is it true that a lot of Bodog’s live dealer girls are now transferring to
    #Mansion, due to lack of stability. At the same time, gamers are having
    terrible difficulty with their payouts, worse than the past years. Uh oh!
    looks like #Calvin Ayre and associates are in deep shit, as well as their loyal
    gamers.

    Gambling site, Bodog Philippines, faces threat of shutting down its operations with another rap of charges filed by authorities.
    This is in connection with the recent raid, and exposure out of Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago’s speech, where she
    blatantly mentioned the illegal grant if license by CEZA to an illegal gambling operation (Bodog).
    Among these charges are money laundering, illegal bets, illegal money deposit and illegal handling of risk and fraud.
    Bovada’s international brand, Bodog had its website previously shut down by US authorities in early 2012 for illegal gambling
    amounting to more than $100 million in winnings. The website’s domain was seized and four of its owners, including its founder,
    Calvin Ayre, have been indicted. Bovada later adapted a website, which can now be accessed at http://www.bovad.lv.
    These recent reports have been hounding the online gaming forum with fears of not getting their gaming funds back after the police
    closed down a large part of their operations in various locations.
    Some players have expressed concern regarding the delay in claiming their payouts.
    “I have had problems with my payouts from Bovada now for a long time,” complained one of the gamers.
    Another online gambling enthusiast is worried if he could ever get his winnings.“
    They told mme that the office is closed and they can’t do payouts.” These fears have escalated as Bovada
    has been reported of moving its operations to Manila. With the customer service and other functions now based offshore,
    even more doubts have been raised not only in payouts but also in making deposits and bets.

    Just for the last 2 weeks, more and more expatriates have resigned and moved back to their homelands.
    Also, the problem with pay outs is still a huge issue for gamers.

    Philippine Government is serious in Getting all illegal gambling operations Shut Down

    Enrile and CEZA having been involved in approving illegal gambling operations, among many other have been rampant in all forms of media for the past 5-6 weeks, after one illegal gambling company, Bodog have been raided in Makati and QC. Today, this articles shares serious actions to be taken by the government, specifically DOJ, to strictly monitor all sort of activities by CEZA, and even taken drastic measures of involving the FBI and US Immigration, as the patriarch of Bodog, the US fugitive Calvin Ayre has been using different passports to allow him to still go back and forth the country. Some article suggest for players of the said online gambling company Bodog, to take back their investments momentarily while the investigation is ongoing, which is said to take 3-5 months, as it may affect some systems, that could cause payout delays/difficluties.
