Amaya Inc. (TSX:AYA). Online gaming. Down 98 cents, or 5.30 per cent, to $17.50 on 1.2 million shares. Amaya stock hit a new 52-week low of $16.51 earlier in the session after a Kentucky court issued a US$870-million verdict against the company in suit for losses by state residents at Amaya’s PokerStars online gambling website. The Montreal-based company said it will appeal the judgment, which it described as being based on an arcane law dating back more than 200 years and completely disproportionate to the alleged offence.
