Amaya Gaming, the Canadian gambling group which operates in regulated markets, has released its financial report for the third quarter of 2012, showing strong growth across the board.

The group reported revenues of $18.32 million for Q3 2012, compared to the same time period in 2011. This was a whopping 360% growth from 2011's $3.97 million - or an increase of $14.35 million.

Amaya said that this revenue growth was primarily due to its consolidation of a full period of software licensing revenue of Chartwell Technology which the group acquired in July 2011. This was in addition to the consolidation of Cryptologic's software licensing revenue, hosted casino revenue and the licensing of Amaya's proprietary interactive gaming platform technology.

Gross profit grew to $18.26 million in the third quarter of 2012 (99% of revenues), compared to $3.80 million in the third quarter of 2011.
