#6: Calvin Ayre
He’s been called the Richard Branson or Hugh Hefner of iGaming and for good reason. Calvin Ayre built online gaming brand Bodog from the ground up using every dime to his name in 1994. In 2009, Ayre launched CalvinAyre.com which has grown to prominence as a leading source of iGaming info-gossip. Despite no longer being at the reigns of Bodog, there remains arguably no one as connected and informed in iGaming as Mr. Ayre.
