LONDON, December 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
In a year that saw, among others, Calvin Ayre indicted, and Norbet Teufelberger have his 2nd 'meeting' with European police forces, the Bodog founder has tested his predictions for 2012 against the reality of another tumultuous year in online gaming.
Calvin's main assertion that in this industry being a private company over a listed one was played out so strongly that behind closed doors you'd find it almost impossible to find a CEO who disagrees. The constant bickering between William Hill and Playtech, PWin and Betfair's withdrawal from core markets are a few of the more obvious examples.
On the flipside you see private companies like PokerStars and Bet365 who are continuing their rise and rise. However, The Rank Group trumped it all by just coming out and saying they want to delist: No charge guys, smart move. Once private - head east, Asia is still the promised land!
