Saturday, March 13 broadcast scheduled
Television network CTV W5 in Canada is to broadcast its take on Internet gambling in an early evening slot on Saturday March 13.
Titled 'The Jackpot', the show "delves into the world of online gambling, a story that takes viewers from the sandy shores of Caribbean tax haven Antigua, to Quebec's Kahnawake Reserve, the unlikely world capital of online gambling," according to the publicity blurb.
"Constantly proving itself as the most-relevant current affairs program in the country, W5 looks at how a small group of Mohawks of Kahnawake have created a gambling Mecca to rival Las Vegas and Monaco, while defying Canadian and American laws," the press material adds.
Almost inevitably, the high profile founder of the Bodog group, Calvin Ayre, is on the interview list of investigative reporter Victor Malarek.
Ayre is described in the publicity material as "...a one-time pig farmer who became a billionaire with Bodog.com, one of the world's leading online gambling sites."
W5 prides itself on delivering factual and comprehensive programmes and this latest offering claims to trace the roots of online gambling from the Mohawk Indians of the Kahnawake Reserve to a global industry worth billions of dollars a year.
CTV W5 specialises in investigative current affairs programs and has presented shows on everything from the used car business and criminal cases to health issues and bombings in northern Canada.
