Canadian gambling firm Amaya Gaming Group reported record revenues including a five-fold increase in adjusted EBITDA in its third 2012 fiscal quarter ending on September 30th.
Canadian gambling news
reported earlier this month about Amaya's acquisition of the Ongame Network.
Ongame announced its intentions to enter the US online poker
market in the first quarter of 2013 following an agreement with the Mohegan Sun casino.
Amaya also acquired the gambling product and technology developer Cadillac Jack earlier in September.
As expected, the Canadian company is willing to capitalize on revenue and cost synergies on both acquisitions in 2013.
