Tonight was the night of the Bodog Live Dealer Casino product launch and in a word wow. Lots of red and black, beautiful women and a ton fun, it was an experience like no other…and the party wasn’t bad either. (Sorry for the hack line, I’ve had a couple Hendricks).

The event took place at the posh Opus Lounge in the Resorts World Casino, the largest casino in the Philippines. Opus prides itself on catering to the casinos VIPs and wealthy partiers of the Philippines capital city.

The doors opened at 8 and the drinks started flowing about 3 seconds after. It gave me a chance to chat with some of the people in attendance including executives from Kambi Sports Solutions and Betsson.

The guest list included dignitaries from all levels of the Philippines government including and a plethora of local celebrities.

We spoke with Will the lead developer on the project. He seemed relieved and proud of his creation, “I’m more excited than anything else because this is just the first milestone in a long journey. There is much more to come, so stay tuned!”

At 9pm a short video documentary was played detailing the making of the Bodog Live Dealer Casino product.

Bodog88 discussed their choice to build the Bodog Live dealer studio in Manila, citing its legal structure and common sense regulatory standards and of course the Filipino people who are “probably the nicest in the world, so friendly and hospitable.”

The video highlighted the rebuild of the studio space from the ground up. They brought in the top technicians from all over the Bodog world to ensure the highest technical standards.

Will spoke on the video talking about the software, “Players don’t remember playing on our software. They remember playing with our software, playing with the dealer, if they won or lost and if they had a good time.”

The video then gave us a sneak peak at the Bodog Girls who would be behind the tables in the Live Dealer Studio but really, the Bodog girls were everywhere at the party.

After some thank-yous to thank all those that had been involved in creating the innovative new product, it set the stage for the creator himself.

Will was up next to show a presentation on the finer points of the software. To see the Live Dealer Casino in action, check out

Will told us how Bodog has taken a piece of software that had become long outdated and updated it to fall in line with the latest technological know-how. It takes advantage of a world-wide team that has 17 years experience in the online gaming industry and will deliver an unforgettable experience.

That was of course if you could see the presentation amongst the beautiful girls that were everywhere that you looked inside the magnificent venue.

I also caught up with the boss, Bodog Brand founder Calvin Ayre and here’s what he had to say about the night, “As is always the case with Bodog, great party. This one is particularly satisfying for me in how excellent the new Bodog Live Dealer Product is working in such a short time. This is an immense testament to the talent in Manila and in particular in Bodog Asia’s Manila offices. This is going to be a global export now.

The party was full of fun people as DJ Eurick spun the hits to the admiration of the some 300 people in attendance. There were lots of drinks and of course beautiful women but the real star of the show was the Bodog Live Dealer Casino product. The Bodog team has done a fantastic job in creating a top of the line Live Dealer Casino product.

Ok we’re off to play some baccarat at the Casino. Here’s the end that you’ve all been waiting for…
