MONTREAL, Jan. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Amaya Gaming Group Inc. (TSX.V: AYA), an entertainment solutions provider for the regulated gaming industry,
today announced that it has entered into a development and licensing
agreement with a subsidiary of Australia-based gaming company Aristocrat Leisure Limited.
The three-year agreement allows Amaya, through its wholly owned
subsidiary Chartwell Technology, to adapt a number of Aristocrat gaming
titles for use in online and video lottery terminal (VLT)
applications. The Aristocrat content includes titles such as Wild
PandaTM, PompeiiTM, and Where's the GoldTM, all well recognized and proven brands in traditional licensed gaming
venues. They will be distributed through Amaya's online and land-based
VLT channels where parties will select titles from among Aristocrat's
vast catalogue of games.
"The online gaming opportunity is becoming increasingly attractive as a
number of jurisdictions around the world are considering regulatory
changes that would allow new domestic gaming websites to operate," said
Darcy Krogh, VP of business development of Amaya Gaming Group. "This
agreement strengthens Amaya's position by supplementing our existing
online gaming content with Aristocrat titles which are well known among
casino customers worldwide."
Gillian Findlay, General Manager Online Gaming for Aristocrat, said the
company was pleased to partner with Amaya.
"Aristocrat's proven slot content is ideally suited to transition to the
online space, as our initial titles have shown. Online gaming is
growing rapidly, and Amaya's strong distribution helps expand the reach
for our extensive portfolio to more players," she said.
