2010 was an expensive year for Calvin Ayre when it came to buying domain names.
In June 2010, Calvin Ayre’s Bodog Brand purchased the domain name slots.com for a reported $5.5 million, which grabbed headlines for weeks. A month later in July, Bodog Brand acquired the Canadian top level country code domain, slots.ca, for $206,906 at Moniker.
It now looks like Calvin Ayre has continued his buying spree for more “slots” domains.
If you hadn’t noticed, the web address slots.net now re-directs to the slots.com website. Re-directing the name, was the same technique used for the slots.ca domain after its purchase.
It’s not confirmed yet whether Bodog Brand was the actual buyer of slots.net, but if I were a gambling man, I’d put my money on Calvin Ayre as the new owner. At the time of this story, the sale has gone unreported.
If a deal was cut, one can only guess that the price may have been in the seven figures. Last year, Poker.org sold for $1,000,000.
