Bodog Raided Again, This time in Asia


- Advertisment -

Out of Makati Philippines comes news that Bodog Asia has been raided, based on political pressure from Philippines “Gangster Governor” Chavit Singson. According to the warrant, this was done based on an investigation that somehow Bodog was offering gambling on a street level.

“The raiding party was 12 deep and only 4 of the group had ID,” stated one witness that was in the office at the time the documents were presented. “I read the questionable documents being thrown around by the authorities and they were referencing local gambling violations, however the company does not offer services to the locals.

Anyone trying to access the company’s website from within the Philippines is blocked via geo-location scripts, so it is impossible to access the website from within the country.  Bodog maintains the website from the region, catering mostly to a Southeastern Asian customer base.
