Bodog Casino Announces Move to Asia
November 23rd, 2012 by Site Admin
Online blackjack players and online casino gamers who are members of the Bodog 88 brand will be pleased to note that the company will be expanding its operations to Asia. Robert Gustafsson, the Bodog88 Chief Executive Officer, has been working with the company and preparing it for the expansion. “Bodog has made all of the mistakes you can make when coming to Asia. We needed a house cleaning; I gave myself one year to get rid of the wrong people and to put the right people in the right positions. Rather than one year, we were able to accomplish it in just 5 months.”
“If you look at most European companies then you are looking at growth of 10, 20 or 30 per cent. If I have a month here when I am growing less than 200 per cent year-on-year then that’s a lost month for me. We should do at least 500 per cent year-on-year,” he added.
Previous announcements from the Bodog company explained that the enterprise was withdrawing its online poker services from UK and Europe.
In regards to the Asian expansion, Robert Gustafsson, the Managing Director, said “There are estimated to be at least 100,000,000 Chinese living outside China and if you then include Thai, Malay and Vietnamese expats you have more than just a niche market but one that has been ignored by other operators despite being far and away the largest consumer group of casino games on the planet. Bodog.co.uk can offer a totally different product to a totally different audience and while we will still offer sports betting the all-important casino customer will be our main source of revenue.”
