Surprised I have not seen it here yet, but according to an article on calvinayre.com, our humble leader Mr. Shackleford has sold the wizard of odds and WoV websites to latestcasinobonuses.com but will stay on as a staff writer. Congratulations Michael, you have definitely put an immeasurable amount of hard work into your sites over the years and the entire gambling community from recreational players to ap owe you thanks, and deserve every dollar. I hope not much changes although I'm sure there will be more advertising.

WOW Congrats Mike

$2.35mil is a very nice sum and well-deserved!!!



Now, to the selfish questions:


What about our profiles and/or real names/identities?

I implicitly trusted Mike with this information - what is our fate now?

I assume they will appoint their own ADMINS

Does the purchaser have affiliations with any brick and mortar casinos that might be interested in our identities hereon?

Sorry for these questions :) Just doing my due diligence

Happy for Mike and anyone who cashes out on their hard work in building a brand or business. You earned it.


As Ace stated sad for the selfish reasons in wanting nothing to change.

Thanks for everything, Wizard and CONGRATS!

Good to see Mike benefit from the hard work he has put into both WOO and WOV! Time will tell what changes will come about as a result of the sale.

Congrats Wizard. The 7 figure payment is proof of how much value your work has brought to the lives of others, and for decades you have been giving that information to people like me for free, What a wonderful service to humanity. Cheers!

Hmm, 2.35 mil,
Sounds like we need a celebration party in Vegas,
Drinks on Mike? Dinners on Mike? At 2.3 mil, I think its fair. How about going for it, the Bachanal :-)
How about it Mike, drinks and dinner party to reward us for the member posts on this board.
