Amaya, Mohegan Sign Deal

Amaya, Mohegan Sign Deal

Amaya Gaming Group Inc. announced that Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun casino has chosen Amaya subsidiary Ongame Network Ltd. to power its online poker offering. Mohegan Sun will enter the online gambling market in early 2013 by launching play money poker for PCs, Macs, smart phones and tablets.

“We have been looking for the best possible fit for a poker partner for over six months,” said Mitchell Etess, chief executive officer of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. “Mohegan Sun needs a provider who has outstanding regulatory experience and flexibility to offer intrastate play-for-free poker at first, and the technology to enable real-money online poker when it is legalized. We are proud to announce that this partner is Ongame.”

The action by the Mohegan Tribe marks the first move by an East Coast casino operation into the world of online gaming and poker. This will give Mohegan Sun a leg up when real-money poker is officially legalized, as expected.
