Another one bites the bullet. eGaming Review, a B2B news site about the online betting industry, will charge for its free website from September 28.
The publisher is putting its site in with a £370 annual subscription that also comprises 12 monthly print issues, e-editions of those issues, daily email and archive search. Online-only access comes in £50 cheaper and additional licenses also slide down.
eGR’s publisher Pageant Media also runs a portfolio of titles for insurance and fund managers. We have asked it whether this strategy is being implemented across the board.
The title started in 2005 and the site clocked one million visitors this year. It runs eGR Live, a free trade show. The new model will show a two-week free trial.
