Online gambling company Bodog launches new poker network
Bodog, the online gambling operator, has just exposed the launch of a brand new poker network, Bodog Network. The licence has been agreed with the Bodog Brand, who owns the exclusive global rights to the brand name Bodog.
Bodog Network, which is headed by Patrik Selin the former CEO of Ongame Poker Network, has secured compulsory obligations from all Bodog online gambling brands as initial network licensees. Bodog Europe (owns Bodog.co.uk and the new Bodog.ca sites), Bodog.com (which is owned by the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group), and Haydock Entertainment (Bodog88.com).
President and CEO of Bodog Network, Patrik Selin said, "I intend to build one of the largest and most reputable poker networks in the world, and we are building a model that is founded on security and integrity, and Bodog Network partners will never need to disclose or put their customer databases at risk. The initial discussions I’ve had regarding potential candidate partners have been overwhelmingly positive," and he also added "As the network comes online in 2010, we will naturally be extending the network to non-'Bodog' branded operators. Those discussions are already underway."
Bodog Network intends to expand their network with European online poker operators next year, after securing a European gambling licence.
