Scientific Games Completes Acquisition of NYX Gaming Group. On 5th January, Scientific Games announced the completion of the NYX acquisition. If you remember, back in December, Scientific Games announced they wanted to buy NYX. Scientific Games then purchased 10.72% of NYX Gaming ordinary shares. Currently, Scientific Games stand to own 42,511,214 Ordinary Shares. Which translates to 38.04% of the Ordinary Shares issued. According to the Daily Mail, Scientific Games paid C$775 million for NYX Gaming. As its the case for any company who trades on NASDAQ the transaction was very quick.
Following the news Kevin Sheehan, CEO and President of Scientific Games said. “Today, Scientific Games moves forward as a leading digital provider of sports betting, iGaming and iLottery technologies, platforms, content, products, and services. As we look to 2018, we are truly excited by the opportunities that this acquisition presents to us. “
Why is this such an important acquisition in the world of iGaming?
First and foremost, when 2 gaming giant merges it’s always an excellent news for the players. Even if Scientific Games is a company that distributes games worldwide. We think they stand a good chance to increase their online presence with this deal. This is because NYX Gaming is renown for its OGS platform. The platform eases the distribution of 3rd party games. Which means that as of now Scientific Games distributes slots from Thunderkick and Elk studio to name a few. It’s important to know that most of these studios are online specialists. But who knows what could happen with this acquisition. Especially since Scientific Games are renown for making awesome slots for land-based casinos.
Currently, Thunderkick and Elk games are not available on the NJ Market. However, things could soon change with this merger. We’ll just have to wait and see what 2018 has in store for us.
