Over the last few years the sale of online gambling sites has attracted a lot of media attention and interest from the online gambling community as well. This is all the more true for domain names that are ideal for search engines.
Many of the recent sales have been conducted through Sedo, which is the world's leading online domain marketplace. Sedo has once again been appointed to broker the collective sale of the three dot.net domains, which are Casino.net, Poker.net and Sports.net. Dave Thomas of Sedo said that this is a rare opportunity to acquire three of the best online gambling domains. He said, "The combination of keyword domains and an active license makes them an ideal destination address for any gaming or gambling business that wants to ensure their place as a high-roller in this hypercompetitive online industry."
Casino.net is currently powered by software from Boss Media and is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. It also includes the Poker.net domain. The online casino skin is operated by Dot Net Gaming using the GTECH G2-owned software provider's licenses. The sale would include the option to retain the Maltese operating business and the Class 1 on 4 license for Casino.net and Class 3 on 4 license for Poker.net. Both these online gambling sites do not accept players from the United States as of now. Sports.net is apparently not live. Bingo.net is not included in the sale lot. It is currently being operated by Jackpot Joy owner Gamesys as a portal driving traffic to free-play games on social network Facebook.
In February last year Sedo brokered the largest dot.org domain sale to date, that of Poker.org to affiliate PokerCompany.com for $1 million. Poker.org is extremely active now. It is operated by a leading group of poker professionals with many years of experience, extensive knowledge and connections within the online poker industry. The mission of Poker.org is to create the leading internet poker community, which they refer to as a poker club. In April this year Sedo managed the sale of Gambling.com to affiliate business KAX Media for $2.5 million. This sale was much in the news because the erstwhile owners of Gambling.com had paid $20 million for this domain name.
However, the biggest online gambling site sale of recent times was not brokered by Sedo, but by Moniker and Oversee.net. It was the sale of Slots.com to the Calvin Ayre owned Bodog brand. The selling price of $5.5 million ranks among the top ten most expensive domain sales to date. Earlier Slots.com was just an information site, but now Bodog operates a Realtime Gaming powered online casino at that domain.
