Is Google getting into the online games arena? It has been known that Google isn't really interested in creating content, and until now I really didn't think they would ever get into games. Google has been rapidly expanding into areas (Payments, WIFI, TV, etc.) which seem to stray from their original mission, to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. But casino games? This seems especially strange.
Check out the very self explanatory domain: googlecasinogames.com. Why would Google register this domain? From what I can tell it was previously registered to someone else using GoDaddy as recently as Jan 23, 2005 (much after the "Created on..." date in the whois records). Maybe you will be able to spend your GoogleBucks(.com) at Google's Online Casino?
Stay tuned for more interesting and fun findings from Google.
