Gaming Corp boasts increased traffic after Eyeconomy buyout
Gaming Corp said that following the launch of new instant play games its casino has been generating over £1 million in monthly turnover.
Following recommendations given by Eyeconomy, Gaming Corp reviewed its marketing strategies and modified the pricing policy for the www.casino.co.uk portal to a cost per click model. This proved to be so successful that maximum server capacity was reached, forcing the company to invest in a new server farm and hosting solution. The new hosting infrastructure will provide Gaming Corp with a scalable solution to cope with current and future traffic growth at the casino.co.uk web sites.
Commenting on current trading and future prospects Justin Drummond Chief Executive said, “Once these servers have been installed a more extensive marketing programme can be initiated and the full benefits of the Eyeconomy acquisition will be felt. Traffic to our flagship casino.co.uk website has more than doubled in recent months and now generates over 300,000 unique visitors”.
