On Tuesday, Bodog announced it will be leaving the US market at the end of the year, but The Morris Mohawk Gaming Group (MMGG), who has licensed the Bodog brand in the US since 2006, expects to continue operating under a new name in 2012. In an attempt to clarify their earlier announcement, a Bodog representative revealed that the new site run by the MMGG will operate on the existing Bodog Poker Network.
In a thread on 2+2, A Bodog representative posting under the moniker “JustinR.” made a statement on the company’s behalf that put Bodog’s earlier announcement into perspective: “In the end the only anticipated player facing change will be a new name and branding.”
In essence, the new site will become a “skin” on the Bodog Poker Network. “Skins” traditionally share player pools, but sometimes do not share cashiers, player loyalty programs, or customer service representatives. Information on if these aspects of operation will be shared across the Bodog Poker Network or segmented is currently unavailable. Pokerfuse has requested this information from Bodog and will update our readers when the information is received
