Following the news, Kevin Sheehan, Scientific Games’ President, and CEO commented. “This strategic acquisition combines NYX’s premier digital gaming and sports betting platforms to our own technologies. NYX positions us to capitalize on the online gaming and sports betting markets.”
Under the terms. Scientific Games will acquire NYX shares for CAD$2.40. Which means that WMS will buy the company for CAD$775 million, or US$631 million.
How will this impact the New Jersey online gaming industry?
It’s still uncertain how the acquisition will affect the NJ industry. Perhaps, the players will not really see any differences. Because both scientific games and NYX games are available in this regulated market. But one thing is certain, we’re hoping NYX platform will cater for Scientific games. NYX platform is a well-designed and is a powerful casino engine. The OGS platform enables casino manager to reward players with free spins. Until now, many found it difficult to give free rounds on WMS because of the back-end platform. One can only speculate on the impact it will have on the industry.
