Scientific Games Completes NYX Gaming Acquisition
The acquisition of NYX Gaming by US gaming technology provider Scientific Games has been finalized following a lot of drama in the last few months. Last month saw 99.6% of NYX shareholders vote in favor of the much talked about acquisition.
Back in September the NYX Gaming Group announced they had agreed terms with NYX Gaming to form a global lottery and digital gaming powerhouse.
In accordance with the completion of the acquisition, NYX ordinary shares will be delisted from the TSX Venture exchange on or before close of business on January 10.
CEO of Scientific Games Kevin Sheehan was delighted that the acquisition was final. He 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.”
NYX Gaming CEO Matt Davey will be the new President of Sci Games Group’s Digital Gaming. A major ace in the hole for Sci Games is their ability to enter the global betting market by delivering the OpenBet Platform to their lottery networks.
