Who bought Poker.com?
Who bought Poker.com in the Moniker.com domain silent auction? How much did it go for? These are the two big questions circulating the online poker industry that as yet remain unanswered.
It is said that Scores.com was sold for well over a million dollars, but Poker.com was expected to fetch $10 to $20 mil according to Marc Lesnick, whose Casino Affiliate Conference in Amsterdam hosted the silent auction.
But Lesnick himself was still trying to find out who bought what could possibly be the Internet's most desired domain name.
"The silent auction would only reveal how much the domain name sold for. We would not know who purchased the domain from the silent auction," said Lesnick, who says he has received dozens of emails over the weekend regarding Poker.com's sale.
The term "Online Poker" has become the most searched phrase on the Web, beating one time favorite "Online Porn".
A few of the other domain names related to online gambling that were expected to fetch fairly hefty amounts included Horsetracks.com, Slots.com, Winner.com, Jackpots.com, and VegasSportsbook.com
