Damage Media Group (DMG) just announced the acquisition of CasinoHeadlines.com, an iGaming news publishing site that has been operating since 2003. In the press release published on Monday, the group announced that the website will join DMG’s portfolio of “headlines” sites, with CasinoHeadlines.com being their second acquisition of the year 2021.
The acquisition of CasinoHeadlines.com gives Damage Media Group a foothold in the iGaming world and an opportunity to provide its users with exclusive content as the industry still holds untapped potential. The website will be integrated as a part of the company’s international network of online publications.
The three major changes to the site will affect Hosting, Platform and Design. CasinoHeadlines.com will move away from Kentico as their primary platform and transfer to WordPress, with Kinsta being the hosting provider of choice. Together with Kinsta, CasinoHeadlines.com will be hosted on a managed WordPress package with a guaranteed uptime of 99.9%. Design wise, TagDiv will once again support Damage in their goals and provide them with a customized Newspaper Mag theme. All three changes are planned to be implemented this year, with the final launch being set to the 2nd of February 2022.
Back in 2003, just shortly after the beginning of the new millennium, a group of iGaming fans launched an information hub for likeminded people, where the goal was to create one of the first dedicated online forums for casino players. Several years later, as the industry was evolving, so did CasinoHeadlines.com improve their strategy and eventually moved towards news reporting, reviews, and guides. That shift helped the site develop a dedicated audience among those who were eager to stay abreast of the latest developments in the industry.
Today, CasinoHeadlines.com has established itself as dedicated iGaming publication covering the latest happenings from the online and offline world through industry news, legislations, sponsorships, and game guides.
