Squatters Invade the Bodog Compound in Costa Rica

Bodog

Once the site of extravagant parties, salacious hooker orgies and a high profile raid, the Bodog Compound is now on the market for around $6 million.  An attached home was included in the asking price though real estate experts suggest the property will sell for no more than $2 million.

"I made a bid for $1 million and it was not accepted," said one online gambling company operator during Gambling911.com's recent visit to Costa Rica.

The mansion may not sell for anything, we are now learning.

Squatters have invaded the plush grounds and golfers are using the swimming pool for their own sick pleasure (the compound is built on a golf course).

Squatters (or precaristas as they are known in Costa Rica) can be a serious problem.   They have certain rights.

The laws that protect them were designed to prevent wealthy people the likes of Bodog "retired" founder, Calvin Ayre, from acquiring too much land and stop taking care of it.  The law was also established to stop rich people from denying land to a large class of people.

Once the squatters establish themselves on an individual's property, it is difficult to get rid of them. If they occupy the land for less than a year it is fairly easy to have them removed, especially during the first three months. The sooner they are ordered off the land the fewer problems to be had.

The whereabouts of the home's owner, Mr. Ayre, are not known, though Gambling911.com can confirm he is alive and still having sex with multiple women, some as young as 18.  Ayre once graced the cover of the 2006 Forbes Billionaire issue.  He is now worth less than a billion dollars according to Forbes.
