Aristocrat Partners With Ongame Poker for the Emerging U.S. Online Gaming Market
MONTREAL and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/13 -- Amaya
Gaming Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE: AYA) and Aristocrat Technologies Inc.
today announced they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding
whereby Aristocrat will offer the Ongame poker network platform to
Aristocrat's U.S. customers through Aristocrat's award-winning
nLive(TM) online gaming platform.
Ongame has added many features for recreational players tailored for
the U.S. market. Recent new products include Strobe, a new fast-fold
poker format; Instant Rewards, an achievement and player incentive
engine; and Hyperspace, in-client player communication. Ongame poker
also has full mobile support for both iOS and Android, including
tablets, and iPads.
Aristocrat's nLive solution offers land-based operators a turnkey
solution for providing their players with an online gaming solution.
Operators can immediately start to offer play-for-fun games, which
give players the chance to sample casino table games, multiplayer
games and Aristocrat's online slots when they're not in the venue. As
soon as necessary regulatory approvals have been put in place, the
operator can switch from play-for-fun poker to real money poker.
"We are delighted to partner with Ongame to offer online poker on the
nLive platform," said Atul Bali, President of Aristocrat Americas.
"This aligns perfectly with our strategy of bringing our
best-of-breed wagering, free play and social platform, while
integrating both Aristocrat and leading third-party content as part
of the nLive offering."
"Aristocrat and Amaya share a common vision of integrating land-based
gaming with online gaming," said David Baazov, CEO of Amaya Gaming
Group Inc. "Integrating our online poker offering into the Aristocrat
nLive platform opens up a wide range of new opportunities in the
United States. This is a strategic relationship in the most promising
market in the world."
