Amaya is one of the most powerful brands on the gambling market and certainly N 1 in poker terms so not really a surprising fact that their revenue continue to grow in first quarter.I think they enlarged and expand the markets they are on including New Jersey are which also take effect over the revenue numbers I guess.
