COPENHAGEN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The generic domain name www.onlinecasino.dk has recently been acquired for the price of $580,000 this month on July 19th 2010. As coincidence would have it, this is approximately 10% of the amount Bodog paid last month to acquire the domain Slots.com.
As was announced recently in the specialized media, Bodog based in Antigua paid the price of $5.85 million for what they declared is “the second most powerful generic gaming domain”. Bodog also claimed that the acquisition price paid for Slots.com was the largest amount of money paid out for a domain name in 2010 and among the top 10 fees ever paid for a domain name.
Best generic domain name in Denmark
OnlineCasino.dk is recognised as being one of the most powerful and accepted generic Danish gaming domain names in the online gaming industry sector. Online casino as well as online gambling has taken off on the Danish market in the last few years as people are reassured by the increased security and reliability of online casinos that are licensed and use state-of-the-art technology encryption software to ensure customer confidentiality and anonymity. Furthermore, a number of the largest and most respected operators on the market have their roots in Scandinavia; companies such as Unibet and Betsson that are both quoted on the stock market.
Danish gambling industry regulation
The Danish parliament passed laws in June 2010 to liberalize the online gambling market. However, they have come under fire due to the difference in taxation applicable to land-based casinos as opposed to online casinos. A final decision will be agreed upon once the EC issues its response on the question.
The domain name OnlineCasino.dk was acquired by an online gaming company based in Malta and will be developed over the coming months into an online casino information portal that will include casino reviews and news as well as offer readers exclusive promotions.
