That's according to eGaming Review's Power 50 list of the top companies in online gamblíng. For, the distinction further cements its leadership role in the booming egaming industry.

eGaming Review is widely known as the industry bible, and was named to its initial Power 25 list last year. This year eGaming review says:

"Bodog has consistently pushed back the boundaries in the US-facing sportsbook sector. Its mass-market-friendly branding is combined with a slick behind-the-scenes operation that has full control of the crucial areas of software development and payment processing. It is one of the best risk managed operations in its sector, with a strong trading team and extremely strong casíno revenues mitigating against sports results. It has also become a powerful player in the poker sector and is spending huge amounts to push its brand in the poker arena with a new software upgrade due in September. It has become the business model to follow in the US, with several sites a ping its brash media-friendly strategy. Its vision as an entertainment brand is evident with offshoots such as its new music label and it remains the most innovative site in the US egaming space. As a result it scored more highly this year for influence than most of its rivals."

"We are thrilled to have made a huge jump into the top ten on the Power 50 and with the innovations we have coming, next year we'll be even higher," says Calvin Ayre, founder and CEO of "Our brand has the ability to take us into poker, entertainment and beyond."
