32Red online casino has a unique and attractive domain name. It stands for the number 32 on the roulette wheel, which is red in color. And 32Red online casino protects this domain name with the zeal of a tigress protecting her cub.

32Red online casino has recently won a World Intellectual Property Organization dispute over the domain name with Baysound LLC located in San Pablo, California. Baysound was using the similar sounding domain 32x.com, which was objected to by the UK based 32Red online casino. Baysound had bought the 32x.com domain in 2006, but its recent activities of using the domain for online casino related functions motivated 32Red online casino to move against it.

The details of the proceedings were reported at the Domains.com information site last week. A three member Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) panel ruled against Baysound on several counts. The main was that in relation to online gambling the 32x domain is identical or confusingly similar to the trademark holder of 32Red. The UDRP panel first satisfied itself that the complainant had clearly established registered rights to the trade marks 32Red and 32. The panel ruled that the actual use of 32x.com by Baysound was in bad faith because the website had provided links to the competitors of the 32Red online casino such as 888.com and PartyGaming.

Last year 32Red online casino had taken on the online gambling giant William Hill in a high profile case in London. 32Red online casino obtained a favorable judgment first from the High Court and later from an Appeal Court. William Hill was using domain names like 32Vegas and 32V.

Not only is 32Red online casino a winner, but it regularly produces winners from its players. The April 2012 winners’ list is out and makes for interesting reading. There are two big winners on unusual roulette variants. Alan C won £30,250 wagering on Premier Roulette Diamond Edition. This is the latest roulette variant at 32Red online casino and allows for multi player wagering. Katey P won a smaller amount of £10,018 on Multi Wheel European Roulette. In this roulette variant players can spin up to eight wheels at the same time.

The biggest winner in online slots in April at 32Red online casino was David M. David won $27,345.30 wagering on a slot game Twin Samurai. This Oriental theme slot game has an Anime type introductory clip about twin samurais. The animations in the slot game are great as well. The other slots machines that resulted in big wins were Alaskan Fishing, Isis, Spring Break, Thunderstruck and Break da Bank Again. 32Red online casino is powered by software from Microgaming and is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar.
