Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, but also with a presence worldwide with offices in North and South America, Europe and Asia, Amaya Gaming has grown throughout the years to become one of the world’s premier casino software companies. The company is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Founded in 2004, Amaya Gaming started off by developing land based solutions, eventually expanding into the online betting world with slots, table games, poker software, sports betting solutions and lottery products. Amaya has acquired several big name betting companies such as Cryptologic, Chartwell and OnGame, substantially growing the company, which today boasts one of the industry’s most robust gaming platforms.
In April 2015, the company made another decision to sell off its gaming development operations when it sold Chartwell and Cryptologic to NYX Gaming. In future, NYX will continue providing games to sites contracted through Amaya.
A safe and secure playing environment is important for Amaya Gaming, which acquired Chartwell, a company that prides itself on the number of accreditation and licenses it possesses. Thanks to its dedication to good practice , Amaya holds licenses in Alderney, Malta, Italy, Gibraltar, Isle of Man and the UK , as well as the eCOGRA seal and also TST certification .
While the games component has been sold off to NYX Gaming, Amaya is still developing and offering a front-end component that is both scalable and easily customized to the client's taste. It also maintains enough flexibility to allow for the integration of games from most of the top game developers in the world.
The back-office component comes with player tracking capabilities, a bonus and promotion management module, cash transaction monitoring, customer service and financial reporting.
Casinos contracted with Amaya can offer players access to the software in download mode, instant play or Flash mode using a web-browser, and via mobile devices that operate on popular platforms such as iOS for Apple products and Android.
Games are available in 24 languages with different currency options. Amaya Gaming’s payment options make it easy and safe to cash in on your favorite online casinos by offering secure software that prides itself on the number of accreditation and licenses it holds.
There are literally hundreds of games available. Most of the games made by Amaya are actually developed by their subsidiaries such as Cryptologic or third parties such as Aristocrat, NextGen, and Novomatic, although there are also a few titles that are developed in-house.
Amaya Gaming software holds exclusive rights to the world of DC-comic book-inspired online casino games, including legendary super hero characters such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Justice League, Supergirl, Batgirl, Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, as well as comic villains such as Bane, The Joker and Lex Luthor. In addition, Amaya Gaming offers casino games from Paramount and Activision, which include Call of Duty and Conan the Barbarian.
In addition to slots, Amaya Gaming offers also table games, video poker, parlor games, and fixed odds games such as keno to its customers. Amaya also offers a Live Dealer platform that allows players to participate in real casino games that are broadcast over webcam.
Desktop gaming has been Amaya’s main focus for several years, although the group is transitioning to make mobile betting a bigger part of its gaming platforms. Mobile betting is available on certain Amaya slots such as Bars n’ Bells, Diamond Gold or Lost Temple. Each game that is ported over to the mobile platform retains all of the features of the desktop versions, but moves to make the screen compatible with touch screens.
