Mohawks Respond to Forbes Bodog Article Regarding Seizures

An article was recently released on Forbes.com that creates several misimpressions that the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group feels compelled to clarify for our customers.

Did Bodog Founder Calvin Ayre Sell His Soul to the Devil?

It's a question people have been asking for years: Did Bodog founder Calvin Ayre sell his soul to the devil?

With a lifestyle that seems unattainable for most mere mortals, Ayre enjoyed a seemingly endless stream of cash, booze and women. He hobnobbed with big name celebrities who fawned over him as if he were the one with the Academy Award.
