It looks like the owner of gambling domain Slots.com hit the jackpot… literally. A multi-day auction for the domain ended today. The winner bought the name for an astounding $5.5 million USD. It ties with Casino.com for the seventh most expensive domain ever sold and is the largest sale so far this year.
The buyer is currently unknown, but given the high sale price, it was likely a big player in the online gambling scene. Slots.com was first registered in 1995 and receives around 15,000 unique visitors per month.
