Sedo hit the proverbial jackpot this week with the $150,000 sale of BettingTips.com. The sale was reported to me this afternoon in Sedo’s weekly public domain name sales report, and NameBio tweeted about the sale when it hit the Sedo RSS feed earlier this morning:

According to Whois records at GoDaddy, the current registrant of BettingTips.com appears to be a company called Ribacka Group Holding AB. A Google search shows that this is a “lead generation company” that runs “Sweden’s largest betting and casino community.” At the time of publication, BettingTips.com resolves to a generic GoDaddy landing page.
Once the sale is recorded by DNJournal, it will rank as one of the top five sales of the year to date. I would not be surprised if other gambling and betting domain names change hands this year for big amounts. It looks like a lot of money is being poured into marketing in that sector, and domain names like this one are powerful. In fact, BettingOdds.com sold in 2019 for $487,500.
