Calvin Ayre, founder of the popular online entertainment poker brand Bodog, has a net worth of $1.2 billion. His net worth has been accumulated largely through his success in the field of online entrepreneurship, in which he has had much success both through Bodog and his other ventures. Originally seeing Bodog as a software development firm, Ayre quickly saw the possibilities of the site as an online gaming destination. As online poker's popularity grew and grew, so did Ayre's wealth, eventually being covered in 2006 "Billionaire" edition of Forbes magazine. Ayre very recently became involved in some legal troubles stemming from the allegedly illegal movement of funds outside the United States and his promotion of online gambling - perhaps as a result of this activity, he no longer handles day to day operations of Bodog and hasn't since 2008, choosing instead to focus on his charitable organization The Calvin Ayre Foundation. Founded in 2005, the foundation exists mainly as a way to channel funds to other charitable organizations instead of serving one specific charitable purpose. Some of the organizations to receive support in the form of money and man-hours from The Calvin Ayre Foundation are the Fisher House Foundation, the LA Lakers Youth Foundation, the Humane Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Animal Avengers Organization, and the Sean McCauley Hope Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.
Calvin Ayre (born May 25, 1961 in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Canada) is the founder of the Bodog online gaming and entertainment brand, which he developed and launched in 1994. Ayre received a Bachelor of Sciences (BSc) in General Sciences from the University of Waterloo in 1984. In 1989, Ayre earned an MBA in Management Finance from City University in Seattle, Washington.
In 1994, Ayre sold everything he owned and with $10,000 to his name he assembled his team and launched the original Bodog. Originally conceived of as a software development company, Ayre's vision for "Bodog" rapidly evolved into an online gaming website, and then to a global brand licensing enterprise that would see the brand spanning a number of non-gaming entertainment sectors.
As the face of the Bodog brand, Ayre's notoriety skyrocketed in the mid-2000s as online gaming's popularity surged. Ayre's public profile went mainstream when he was featured as the cover story for Forbes Magazine's 2006 annual "Billionaires" edition., leading to being featured in People Magazine's "Hottest Bachelor" list a few months later, and Star Magazine's "Most Eligible Billionaire Bachelors" list in late 2007.
In a 2009 interview Ayre stated that, following the passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) in 2006, the organization that he led and that had been accepting customers from the United States withdrew from that market, instead licensing the brand to the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group, which then operated its own online gaming website servicing the US under the Bodog brand until December, 2011. On December 14, 2011 the MMGG announced that it would no longer operate any Bodog-branded websites and transitioned all customers to its new site.
After undertaking what Ayre describes as "transitional media relations" following the brand license arrangement, Ayre announced his retirement in April 2008, indicating that he intended to devote his time to The Calvin Ayre Foundation.
