Leading Internet gaming firm’s Amaya Gaming’s subsidiary, the Rational Group has revealed that following the group’s purchase of several domains, they are currently in the process of launching a brand new dedicated sports betting site featuring the brand BetStars.
According to Gambling Invest, an internet gambling industry site, The Rational Group has already purchased the domains BetStars.com and BetStars.net in order to assist the group with their developing sports betting brand. The acquisition follows the company’s purchase of BetStars.co.uk, BetStars.eu and BetStars.de for four figure amounts.
The article in the Gambling Invest site went on to reveal that in a separate private transaction verified by DNJournal this week, gambling domains investor Reginald Hudson II sold Betstars.net for an amount of $10,000 to IP Twins, a French domain registrar that reportedly acquired the domain on behalf of Rational Group.
Rational Group had already been assisted by IP Twins in the acquisition of Betstars.co.uk which it acquired in a private transaction in June, 2015, as well as Betstars.eu and Betstars.de which were acquired through domain marketplace Sedo, for an amount of $2,177 in May and $1,995 in June of this year respectively.
Since having been acquired by Amaya Gaming, the Rational Group has been endeavoring to expand their services with the company’s poker sites PokerStars and Full Tilt has already begun offering players standard casino games such as slots.
BetStars.com previously belonged to WilsonBet, a UK licensed operator that closed down the domain on 30th June, 2015 to focus on telephone bookmaking operations.
