    Default I've just registered wowpots.com

    Are there any restrictions on using names like this. Wow Pot is a slot game from microgaming, and I hope to use it to promote a casino that includes wow pot.

    Are these types of names useful for grabbing surfers, or do they go for more general names?

    Ace-

    You're going to get very targeted traffic with a name like, for sure.

    I think it's a great idea if you target your site about the game - don't think there would be copyright issues if you don't copy graphics from the game...

    hmm, fruit-slots.com is not taken

    Well, fruit-slots.com was available... I just swiped it!

    At some point I'll have time to put a good website up there as my entry from sportsbooks to casino marketing!

    I want to use graphics from the game if I can, and use it as an intro to playing slots on-line. I guess I'll need to get permission from Micro-gaming. Is it best to deal directly or via a casino?

    I don't think a small volume of highly targetted traffic would be a problem as long as I got a few conversions from it. I only paid reg fee for the name, so it's not much of an overhead.

    May or may not be useful info but some registrars are pre-registering .EU domains too. Its going to be a while before they are "out there" but i did it through a biggie (Host Europe subsiduary) and there are some good names still not pre-reg'ed.

    Even "members.eu" was available! So was "freecasino" and a few others i checked. I stopped at casinogambling and casinogames.

    Long live a united Europe (please!).

    .EU domains are still in the sunrise period, so you wont get those domains.

    This is true but the Sunrise rules are fairly specific about how registrations are done. EU sunrises are trademark based, so unless someone has those trademarked, there's a chance
