It was verified late last week that megalithic, all-in-one gambling site and online casino, Bodog, has bought out online gaming operator, BetCorp with a price tag of $9 million. The purchase, which was finalized last Wednesday morning by Betcorp shareholders, gives the Costa Rica – based Bodog Entertainment Group full ownership of Betcorp’s gaming properties. These sites include the highly successful and popular BetWWTS online sportsbook, Oasis sportsbook, BetHoldem Poker Room and Thunderbolt Online Casino.
Bodog is one of the most successfully branded and marketed internet betting conglomerates in the world. Their name has been seen at major sporting events, professional poker circuits, on billboards, prime time television commercials, reality television shows, music videos, video games and on the sides of commercial passenger airplanes flying to Las Vegas. Following the success of their sportsbook, Bodog opened a poker room and online casino, which they marketed with a comprehensive lifestyle campaign, that has now turned into a way of life for many devoted Bodog players.
Throughout its rise under the brilliant guidance of founder Calvin Ayre, Bodog Entertainment has managed to remain a privately owned company. As such, their was no need for shareholder approval regarding Bodog’s purchase of BetCorp. Instead, Bodog immediately took charge – and true to form – issued 10% deposit bonuses to all BetCorp playing accounts being converted to the Bodog platform.
Bodog should be well received by BetWWTS account holders, whose sports betting options through Bodog’s online software, will be as diverse, if not more than their former BetCorp platform. Additionally, players will now have access to Bodog’s sharp online casino games and large poker tournaments guaranteeing some of the largest money pools on the Web.
