Recently, hot off the press it has been announced by Bodog Casino that they will not be renewing their contract with Morris Mohawk Gaming which expires at the end of the year. The contract was due to be renewed on December 31, 2011. There is no bad blood between Bodog and Mohawk gaming who have held the license for Bodog USA for the past 5 years, it is a purely a marketing plan by Bodog. The reason behind what may people find as shocking news, is that Bodog have been granted a new remote and non remote gambling license from the UK. They intend to concentrate on this starting from 2012 and not jeopardize the potential that it holds by also being in the US. The Bodog Group are intending on expanding their brand in the UK, Europe and Asia where it has gained incredible popularity in the past few months. As the chairman of Bodog, Patrik Selin was quoted as saying this is " a new chapter and we want to attract the best talent in the industry". In short Bodog which holds the number 16th place in traffic for its popular Poker room in the US amongst its casinos believes that staying in the US with its new license will not be beneficial to its expansion and reputation.
New Brand for US Players
For players who have enjoyed the Bodog casinos you do not have to worry, all that is changing is the name. Morris Mohawk Gaming has held the license for Bodog in the US for the past five years and is promising to relaunch Bodog under a new name, the MMGG brand, Morris Mohawk Gaming before the year is up. All of the exciting games and tournaments that are available to play and enjoy at Bodog will still be available but under a new name, you can still enjoy the Bodog fun slots but it may now be known as Morris Mohawk Gaming fun slots or something similar. The future is still looking bright for US casino players.
