Amaya assures players funds are safe

Back in November 2012, when Amaya acquired poker and egaming network Ongame from, Ongame’s financial status was exposed when it was known that the network had only 31% of the cash segregated.

Players were owed a total of $15.7m in funds and only $4.9m were available at the moment of the negotiation. This revealed a lack of player fund protection.

In an interview with Pokerfuse, CEO of Amaya, David Baazov said that Amaya has decided to segregate player funds into a separate account as a way to secure players deposits. He added that Amaya “guarantees the liabilities of all of its subsidiaries including those of Ongame.”
