2012 review of online gambling industry by Calvin Ayre

26 December 2012

(PRESS RELEASE) -- In a year that saw, among others things, Calvin Ayre indicted, and Norbet Teufelberger have his second "meeting" with European police forces, the Bodog founder has tested his predictions for 2012 against the reality of another tumultuous year in online gaming.

Calvin’s main assertion that in this industry being a private company is preferred to being a listed one was played out so strongly that behind closed doors you’d find it almost impossible to find a CEO who disagrees. The constant bickering between William Hill plc and Playtech, PWin and Betfair’s withdrawal from core markets are a few of the more obvious examples.

On the flipside you see private companies like PokerStars and Bet365 Group Limited who are continuing their rise and rise. However, the Rank Group trumped it all by just coming out and saying they want to delist: No charge, guys - smart move. Once private, head east: Asia is still the promised land!

The full article can be found at CalvinAyre.com. Calvin’s 2013 predictions will be posted on December 28th.
