Canada's Newest Billionaire: $10,000 Investment In Internet Gambling 10 years ago

Calvin Ayre 44, who grew up on a pig farm in Saskatchewan and graduated from the University of Waterloo, made his money as a cyber bookie. His operation is based in Costa Rica because Canada insanely won't make internet gambling legal here.

"He started the company 10 years ago with $10,000. By the end of 2005, it was estimated Bodog.com had taken in $6 billion (U.S.) in wagers."

Calvin recently sponsored the Lingerie Bowl. Enjoy:
