    So once again, ok?

    blackjack.anynewgTLD >> casinoblackjack.bet

    That is all I wanted to say.

    (Otherwise it is hard to tell. All newgtlds are sh1t for branding, but most of affiliate portals are sh1t anyways and they will never get any decent type-in traffic from returning visitors; the traffic they are getting is (apart of links) from google where actually short EMD domain with any extension will have higher CTR than long scammy .com [for example because google shows EMD letters as bold and people at SERP do not look for extensions that much, especially when the keyword is bold]. This is something I know from my own experience, but it is probably so complicated to grasp that I am not going to extend this way of thinking any further. That said as alternative I prefer 2 letters national extensions for such projects.)

    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    Absolutely positively "no." Just because there are a few anomalies mainly pertaining to the unusual world of crypto doesn't mean that "Blackjack.NonsenseTLD" will be better than "CasinoBlackjack.MakesSense" at all. The ".bet" may be a weak domain overall, but it's a whole lot better than "Blackjack.NonsenseTLD."

    A bit hard to read you there, but I will just say that it's sad and amazing how people in online gambling have been so misled and brainwashed regarding best quality EMD's. It's ironic too given the status of gambling as the second most lucrative field online. The best EMD's even if they are three or four words long never stopped being the best and most valuable domain names. They merely no longer jump to the top of google page 1 automatically for a search on the keyword phrase alone just by virtue of existing when you only have a single banner and link on them and nothing else. I have also written extensively from experience how people naturally search for them - including if they are super long and four words, if that is the top of mind authority phrase or set of phrases. And if they are literally searching for the domain itself, (did you see my last reply which showed what they do while searching with spaces in the domain?), google is still going to deliver it. Long story short, when I had nothing but a simple page up (which you can verify in archive.org) at a super long four word .com like AtlanticCityOnlineGambling.com, people constantly searched for not only the phrase "Atlantic City Online Gambling" but for the actual domain itself - numerous different ways in which all they did was sometimes include spaces as shown for another example in my previous reply. Get the picture? Why do people do that? Because no matter how long it is, "Atlantic City Online Gambling" is the top or one of the top authority phrases. If the top or a top authority phrase had been 8 words long, they would have done the same thing too. And in those days, AtlanticCityOnlineGambling.com dominated the top of google page 1 for a search on the keyword phrase alone "Atlantic City Online Gambling" despite having virtually no content at all. The only thing that changed, and rightly so, is that the absurdly simple page I had up (which you can see in archive.org) no longer gets to dominate at the top of page 1 by just having a single link, single banner, and tiny amount of text links on it which only took you to the same page you were already on or to another link page. Get the picture? However, people naturally search for "somethingsomethingsomething.com" or "something something something.com," etc., or even longer ones if the phrase is "top of mind" because ".com" is completely ingrained in people's minds, and that is still one of the huge inherent advantages of the best EMD's among all the other advantages that never changed and have always been so.
