Russ Hawkins, at 39, is the President and CEO of arguably one the most successful and respected online gaming watchdog sites, MajorWager. MajorWager was co-founded in 2000 by Russ Hawkins and Fred Pisapia. Hawkins went on to purchase the whole company in December 2003. Being a watchdog in the unregulated world of online gaming certainly has its hazards. Hawkins is often accused of being just about everything under the sun by the companies that he reports on.
In the world of the internet all is fair in love and war. Slander and libel is a mainstay. MajorWager.s vision, led by Russ Hawkins, is to continue reporting on rogue operations world wide. MajorWager will continue to report on suspect players and fraudulent entities. Despite the abuse MajorWager and Russ Hawkins takes when breaking a story about some rogue operation in Costa Rica, or smoke and mirrors pseudo watchdog, they will continue on to be the worlds foremost watchdog in the vast world of online gaming.
