This sale is now the highest New gTLD reported domain name sale. You can see the top 20 new extension domain name sales at Sold.Domains.
There have been a couple more casino related sales at Sedo in the past month. The domain name videoslots.casino sold for $7,500 while bitcoin.casino sold for $28,000.
These 3 sales seem unrelated as videoslots.casino and bitcoin.casino are registered with GoDaddy and to 2 different owners while Casino.Online is now registered with Safenames, a brand protection agency, and is behind whois privacy. Casino.Online resolves to the default Safenames landing page.

I think that Donuts should be very happy with this sale as they are the .casino registry and online.casino is currently reserved.
The casino always win 😉
Online casinos are a racket, can you imagine computerized slots online, license to make money.
Cash cow business, run from offshore countries, this one was a matter of when, not how.
How did you come to know @Konstantinos. I think i have tweeted you with this update and said you to update this sales at your end.
Also, i created thread on veru first this sales:
I am watching the sedo sales rss feed.
They should be ecstatic with the sale. Perfect example of a new gtld that you wouldn’t find available for a reasonable reg fee at sunrise, with the keyword having a strong commercial match to the extension. Every new gtld has a limited amount of keywords with good matches like this, then the quality drops off fast.
Even higher sale now from Donuts, online.casino for $510,000!
