According to a tweet this morning from Sedo broker Dave Evanson, Casinos.org was sold for $400,000. I think it is safe to assume the deal was brokered by Dave:

In looking at the DNJournal year to date domain name sales chart, the $400,000 sale of Casinos.org will rank in the top ten sales of the year. It will rank higher than the $370,000 sale of DomainNames.com and it will be just below the $402,500 sale of Cooking.com (also via Sedo). This sale will rank as the largest non .com domain name sale of the year (to date). Additionally, the sale of Casinos.org will rank as the fourth largest .org sale of all time, according to NameBio. The largest .org sale of all time is the $1 million sale of Poker.org in 2010.
The Casinos.org domain name is currently registered under privacy at Fabulous, so I am unable to see who bought or sold the domain name. In speaking with Dave in the past, I am pretty sure he only shares details about closed deals, so my assumption is that the payment was already submitted by the buyer.
I will keep my eye on the Whois record to track who acquired Casinos.org. With yesterday’s $30 million sale of Voice.com, the $400,000 sale of Casinos.org might get a bit lost, but it is a fantastic result for a .org domain name.
