Online Casino House Raid

This is a story you might not believe, but it is definitely true. Bodog online casino, one of the leading online casinos on the web, had a private house party torn apart by local authorities who believed illegal activity was taking place, namely a casino night session, which is adversely against the law. Calvin Ayre, the online casino CEO, was filming the party at his Costa Rican mansion as part of a celebrity tournament, which was scheduled to be aired on a major television network.

When the raid occurred, everyone was stunned, and Ayre claimed that the authorities looked like they were raiding the residence of Al Capone. No arrests were made, but a laptop computer and several files containing organizational material were confiscated from the premises. This came as quite a shock to the online casino CEO and recent new billionaire of Canada. Local press in Costa Rica began to speculate that illegal activity was going on in the Ayre mansion, because the 44-year-old online casino CEO became so rich so quickly.

In the end, the court-ordered raid proved unsuccessful as the gambling segments of the reality poker TV show were reportedly filmed at a local television, station, and not his private home. Because of his title and his line of work, illegal activity was automatically assumed. Online casino sites are not illegal in all countries, but gambling at private residence with buy-ins and cash prizes without a permit is. In the meantime, the online casino will continue to grow and thrive and remain as one of the leading online casino sports books on the web.
