MONTREAL, Canada – December 18, 2012 – Amaya Gaming Group Inc. (“Amaya” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: AYA), an entertainment solutions provider for the regulated gaming industry, announced today that Redbet Gaming Ltd (“Redbet”) has chosen Amaya’s wholly owned subsidiary Ongame Network Ltd. (“Ongame”) for a two-year licensing agreement to power its company-wide poker business. The multi-site deal includes popular brands such as Redbet.com, Whitebet.com and Heypoker.com.
“When leaving the IGT poker network we did a thorough investigation of all B2B poker providers,” said Adam Vella, Head of Poker at Redbet Gaming Ltd. “Selecting Ongame was an easy choice. Ongame combines excellent network management with a rock solid technical platform. Today, Ongame now provides poker to all of our major sites.”
“We’re pleased to add Redbet to our growing family of clients and look forward to exceeding their expectations in us as a technology partner,” said Darcy Krogh, VP of Business Development at Amaya. “We continue to execute on Amaya’s plan for Ongame, which is to leverage its scalable software architecture and infrastructure to add new partners to Ongame’s network, including in new jurisdictions. With Amaya’s regulatory experience and proven platforms in both poker and casino, we are an increasingly viable option for those looking for new partnerships online.”
