Amaya on target for year-end India launch

Online gambling company Amaya Group has reiterated its intentions of entering the Indian market by the end of the year.

Eric Hollreiser, vice president of corporate communications of Pokerstars in an interview with IOM Today said he expects to launch an India-specific poker website by year-end.

“That’s obviously a huge market, a huge population and a growing middle class. Recent figures are that there is something in the order of 200 million smartphones and mobile is an increasingly important part of our business because that is how people are consuming entertainment and consuming products, and so much is happening on mobile devices.”

“We think that is a great potential market for us,” said Hollreiser.
