Gambling Domain Names

A UK auction of 2300 gambling-related domains got under way this past week during an industry conference in London, England.  There seemed to be little interest from those in attendance, however.

"The selection of domain names available should appeal to igaming operators and affiliates alike as domains represent a good investment and many of the names available for sale in the auction are perfect to be developed into web properties," commented GamblingInvest.com founder, Pierluigi Buccioli.

"Participants turnover has so far been lower than we expected, so registered bidders should be able to snatch domains at very good prices," added Buccioli.

The auctioning of domain names that included picks.us, bettingexchange.us, igaming.us, asianbookmakers.com, soccerbookmakers.com, tennispicks.com, worldcuppicks.com, totobet.com, londonbet.com and p2pbet.com, started on Wednesday 26 January.

Generic domain names associated with the gambling sector can be worth a significant amount of money.

Gambling.com went on the market for $10 million last month.  Regional domain Poker.au.com sold for $100,000 earlier in the year.
