|Though CBS rebuked the claim that BoDog had to stop all wagers on “Survivor 6: The Amazon” because their employees were making bets with insider knowledge it turns out there might have been something in it after all.|
The well-known sports book was criticised for merely seeking publicity in some of the media. Even CBS took an almost too flippant response with this, their only official comment since the story: “Only The X-Files has more conspiracy theories than Survivor.'
Yet within days CBS lawyers were hounding BoDog for information on the players they suspected were cheating. Of course, the online bookie was not at liberty to reveal their customers names. BoDog simply closed the suspected players accounts and closed their wagers, and that was enough for them.
Rob Gillespie, BoDog President: 'While we have rules and regulations we expect our players to adhere to, they also have certain expectations as to the privacy of their account information. We politely informed CBS that we would not violate our players privacy and provide names or any other details.”
Despite loss of business from having to stop accepting all wagers on the event, BoDog are bouncing back by posting fresh odds on yet another reality TV show, “The Amazing Race 4.” I do hope they made some internal adjustments before opening themselves to that sort of naughtiness again.
Gillespie: 'We feel pretty confident that they won't be back. But if we see something out of the ordinary again, we'll be sure to investigate.'
“The Amazing Race 4” begins airing on CBS on May 29th. To view the odds for The Amazing Race 4 CLICK HERE.
