The launch comes after Amaya announced in August the acquisition of daily fantasy sports operator Victiv for an undisclosed sum.

In August, Victiv chief executive officer Matthew Primeaux said: “StarsDraft will combine Victiv’s innovative platform and experienced DFS team with Amaya’s expansive consumer base and operational excellence as the world’s preeminent online gaming brand.

“We intend to capitalise on what we believe is strong crossover between online poker players and daily fantasy sports.
