The auction for the online site has attracted a lot of interest in the casino industry with potential bidders preparing for the auction. With slot machine games accounting for as much as seventy percent of casino gaming revenue, this auction will be one of the most highly anticipated domain names auctions this year.
The founder of Moniker, Monte Cahn, said that this auction gives a one-of-a kind chance to acquire a domain name that is an appropriate match for one of the most well-known games in the casino gaming floor. Cahn said that they are happy to offer investors the chance to participate in a venture that has improved consistently year-by-year.
Cahn’s beliefs are supported by a recent H2 Gambling Capital study which found that the overall value of the worldwide e-gaming market rose from $23.5 billion dollars in 2008 to $26.6 billion dollars in 2009. H2 now believes that its worth will improve to $36.5 billion dollars by 2012.
