Bodog has not yet been the target of any of the U.S. Department of Justice's recent actions, but the site is seemingly well prepared. Bodog.com last night changed its domain name into Bodog.eu.
Bodog has so far managed to stay clear of the U.S. Department of Justice, despite the fact that the site continues to offer online poker to American players.
Bodog was, however, mentioned in the latest round of indictments, which were unsealed on Monday against among others Doylesroom and TruePoker, and the site is now seemingly taking the consequence and has changed its domain name into Bodog.eu.
The company has not made any statements as to why it has chosen to change its domain, but looking at the recent movements in the industry, the move could indicate that the site is next to feel the long arm of the DoJ.
One of the other sites indicted on Monday, Bookmaker.com, seemed to be aware of the DoJ's plans, as the company registered Bookmaker.ag just days before U.S. authorities moved in to seize the .com domain.
Similarly, Doyle Brunson left Doylesroom shortly before the site was charged with running an illegal online gambling operations and money laundering, leading many observers to speculate that the legend was tipped off about an upcoming crackdown.
Meanwhile, the Merge Network is rumored to have initiated similar measures, imposing a block on new players from New York, Washington, Maryland, Missouri and Louisiana.
The block is believed to be a preemptive move to prepare the network's skins in the face of a possible indictment, although the network itself has still to confirm or comment on its actions.
Both Bodog and the Merge Network were among the biggest winner on Black Friday with traffic numbers soaring almost immediately as competitors Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, Absolute Poker and UB Poker were forced to shut down their U.S. operations.
