Amaya Mulls Acquisitions

Amaya, Inc. (TSX:AYA), which has recently acquired online gambling sites PokerStars and Full Tilt, is looking for further acquisition opportunities. Amaya said it currently plans to execute on this strategy via both organic development and strategic acquisitions.

Amaya Inc. Received UK Gaming Licenses for PokerStars, Full Tilt and B2B Businesses

Amaya Inc. announced that it has received licenses from the UK Gambling Commission for PokerStars and Full Tilt to operate online poker and other gaming within the United Kingdom. Since late 2014, the brands had been operating under temporary continuation licenses. Previously, they were white-listed under their Isle of Man gaming licenses. Amaya's B2B online casino business has also received licenses to continue supplying UK-facing online gaming operators with online gaming content and technology. The issuance of the UK gaming licenses follows a thorough review including, but not limited to: financial stability and history, corporate and business unit management structure, technology, game integrity, payment processing and security, anti-crime and anti-money laundering protections, responsible gaming policies and practices and regulatory approach to various geographic operations. The UK Gambling Commission has introduced a rating system for player fund protection. PokerStars and Full Tilt have voluntarily applied the very high standards of player fund protection whereby UK player funds are held separately by a trustee, consistent with the approach PokerStars pioneered on the Isle of Man.
