The representatives of Amaya Gaming have also born out the collaboration between the two giants in a weekend editorial at FlushDraw. The cooperation between Amaya Gaming and Caesars Entertainments New Jersey is a long story, although there were some difficulties between Caesars and PokerStars which Amaya bought last summer.
