Amaya Gaming purchases PokerStars and FullTilt Poker for a $ 4.9 billion deal
Amaya Gaming becomes the biggest online gaming company listed on the stock market. Effectivelly, Amaya has just signed an unprecedented deal within the world of online gambling by purchasing PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker for $ 4.9 billion. Amaya Gaming and the parent company of Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars, Rational Group, announced late last weekend a deal that highlight a great comeback of both poker rooms in the US market. The deal is expected to facilitate the entry of Full Tilt Poker along with PokerStars in the US regulated markets in which Amaya Gaming now occupies an important place.
Amaya plans to optimize Rational Groups growth initiatives on new and regulated markets, including those in the United States with its long experience and the unequalled reputation of its gaming offers (casino, sportsbook, social gaming....). For this purpose, no poker services operated by PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker will be affected by the transaction, ditto for the Management team of Rational Group. Of course, the community of poker players in the world could always enjoy their experience in the game of their choosing. According to John Pappas, the Executive Director of Poker Players Alliance (PPA), the return of PokerStars on the US is such encouraging news for millions of American players. The latter have long awaited it. May we remind you that 90 % of PPA members are expressing their interest and will in wagering on PokerStars site.
