Mohegan Sun will use Ongame’s platform for its poker offering, Amaya Gaming announced today.
It’s the first deal since Amaya completed the acquisition of Ongame in October.
“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 intra‐state play‐for‐free poker at first, and the technology to enable real money online poker when it is legalized.”
With eyes on potential regulation, Moghean Sun plans to roll out a play money poker site in early 2013 for PCs, Macs, smart phones and tablets.
“It is exciting to be part of the move online for one of the most dynamic and expansive casino operators in the United States,” commented Peter Bertilsson, managing director of Ongame.
“Mohegan Sun is the second largest casino site in the United States and it will be very exciting to be a partner in their online gaming operations as this becomes an important part of their future business strategy.”
