Amaya Gaming Group Incorporated, a server and network-based gaming specialist has closed an agreement that will see technology from its Ongame Network Limited subsidiary power a new online poker offering from American land-based operator Mohegan Sun.

Amaya lately invested €15 million to obtain business-to-business online poker network provider Ongame Network from operator bwin.party Digital Entertainment and said that the new Mohegan Sun play-for-fun offering is set to go live early next year at MoheganSun.com.

Managing Director for Ongame Network, Peter Bertilsson said “It is exciting to be part of the move online for one of the most dynamic and expansive casino operators in the United States,”

“Mohegan Sun is the second largest casino site in the United States and it will be very exciting to be a partner in its online gaming operations as this becomes an important part of its future business strategy.”

Amaya mentioned that the premier of MoheganSun.com will indicate the first time an American east coast casino provider has entered into the world of online gaming and will see the domain ‘at the head of the line’ when real-money play is legalised.

Chief Executive Officer for the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, Mitchell Etess said “We have been looking for the best possible fit for a poker partner for over six months,” s

“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 legalised. We are proud to announce that this partner is Ongame Network.”
