Amaya Gaming has been around in the online gambling market for quite some time, but recently put its name on the map in 2014 when it acquired Rational Group (which operates Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars) for $4.9 billion. At first, Amaya Gaming ran these two leading sites as poker-only platforms but eventually decided to branch out.
Full Tilt Poker eventually became Full Tilt, so that the site would be able to provide players with a wide range of online pokies and casino games. While PokerStars did not officially rebrand, the platform also started offering up online casino games as well as online poker products.
As a leading providing of online casino games, Amaya offers players the chance to spin the reels on over 100 different pokies. Many of these games are available on both mobile and desktop gaming platforms that can be access on iOS, Android and Windows devices. So, no matter how you choose to access your favourite online casinos, you’ll always be able to play Amaya pokies from your tablet, smartphone or personal computer.
There is a wide range of branded games in Amaya’s collection. The company works closely with production companies to create games based on movies and television shows which remain true to their source content. Some of the most popular branded pokies from Amaya are:
- King Kong: Island of Skull Mountain
- Forrest Gump
- Street Fighter II
- Ferris Buellers Day Off
- Green Lantern
