I noticed a press release today that caught my attention, it was a press release specifically for Casino.cn. While I’ve seen press releases for big juicy one-word .COMs I haven’t seen it as much in other markets, and nor have I seen them put out that they expect the domain to shatter the previous price record.
I-Promotions expects demand for this domain name to be high, anticipating that the successful bid will beat the previous record set for the sale of a .cn domain name sale, set by Game.cn in January 2014. (Source – BusinessWire)
I can’t say that I know enough about the .CN market to guess if this could be true or not but I did do a cursory dive into the data behind similar sales. The word Casino is definitely seen as a valuable one with domains like Casino.Global selling for $28,000. Still when you look at what the exact-match of Casino has sold for in other TLDs, it looks like most end up at $5,000 or less:
Casino.live – $5,000
Casino.bb – $2,000
Casino.nf – $1,495
Casino.st – $2,750
Casino.gs – $2,050
Now Game.cn sold for a $512,307 back in 2014, could Casino.cn beat that record?
