Italian online casino domains have increased significantly in value following the expanded regulation of the Italian market in July to include online casino action.
 
Anticipating market regulation, I-Promotions Limited recently acquired the Blackjack.it domain for Euro 65,000, and domains like OnlineCasino.it are currently up for sale at a low six figure price.
 
OnlinePoker.it is also available to offerers willing to pay "in Euros ranging in the mid 5 figures".
 
Trust Partners, a consultancy firm, has estimated online casino revenues in Italy at Euro 200 million in 2011, rising to Euro 800 million to Euro 1 billion in 2012.
