NYX INTERACTIVE PURCHASES NEXTGEN GAMING


GAMING SOFTWARE PROVIDER NYX Interactive AB has announced the acquisition of Australian online games developer NextGen Gaming Party Limited to create a combined business that will provide titles to over 40 operators around the world.

Stockholm-based NYX Interactive provides software solutions for the iGaming industry and stated the new larger organisation now owns a catalogue of over 300 games and is “even better suited to meet the investment requirements of certain strategic regulated markets”.

“NYX Interactive and NextGen Gaming are a perfect fit,” said David Flynn, Chief Executive Officer for NYX Interactive, which was established in 2006 and provides platform, bingo, lottery and casino services and technology to some of the largest members of the World Lottery Association in addition to gaming operators throughout Europe.

“In addition to a shared set of values between the two organisations, we share a highly scalable business model and enjoy respected reputations. Our combined entity will be much stronger and our customers will benefit from NextGen Gaming’s leading- edge games studio, which produces some of the industry’s best performing games. We are very excited about our future together.”

NYX Interactive revealed that the pair will endeavour to adopt a unified set of software standards to enable the rapid delivery and distribution of content including slots, table, bingo, instant win and scratch card games and place the new combined firm in a strong position to profit from land-based casinos seeking to add an interactive offering to their portfolios.

“In light of the regulation of the European gaming markets, this strategic move puts us right in the sweet spot of what operators expect from their technology partners,” said Staffan Lindgren, Strategic Business Development Executive Vice- President for NYX
Interactive.
