Bingo.com has finally paid off it's name in full. Bingo.com is probably one of the most valuable website names online. Bingo.com first bought the name back in 1999 for $1.1 million from Bingo Inc.
However, the price included an agreement to make ongoing payments to Bingo Inc, at 4% of gross revenues for the next 100 years. Bingo.com has now came to an agreement to pay off the remainder of these payments for $900k in stock.
As a result, the original owner, Bingo Inc, now owns around 30% of the Bingo.com company.
Was this a good deal? Probably, for both parties. Bingo,Inc was pretty wise to retain a future cut in payments, and has now ended up with almost 1/3 of the company.
Bingo.com has the security of full ownership of this valuable domain. The site has almost 2 million members and has recently moved to the UniBet software platform.
Anyone for Drive In Bingo ?

"It's a great laugh ... and if you get a line, simply beep your horn"
Food and prizes are delivered direct to cars by delivery boys.
One of the reasons for the craze is said to be the ability to smoke again whilst playing.
Irelands smoking ban in public places has hit attendances at traditional bingo halls all across the country over the last few years. Some think the craze will turn out to be just a fad, unlikely to survive over the winter months, but many expect it to stay popular in summertime months, especially as the low costs allow bigger prize money payouts than traditional clubs.
