It will be interesting to follow the prices on dot casino domains as more and more in the gambling industry start to use this domain extension, gambling domains have always been in league with domains that sell for highest prices such as casino.com and slots.com selling each for over $5 million.
Many of the quality names were purchased during the initial offering of .casino. While there are still a number of great names available, many will only be available through public auctions or private offerings.
Is the casino market really large enough to support its own specialized extension? Considering the amount of online casinos launching in the UK and Canada, plus the already existing land casinos, the extension does have the legs. With more casino development in the United States and White Label casinos being launched on a daily basis around Europe, there will be some definite value for domain investors.
Several of the hundreds of .casino domains appearing at the Sedo auction are generic names that will also serve the affiliate market. Domains such as top.casino, slot.casino and I.casino are easy to remember and have that as an additional factor in valuation. The Star.Casino domain auction continues for only a few more days and the progress can be monitored here.
