Australia – NextGen to supply slots to Gala CoralBy Phil - 6 May 2014
Betdigital has been chosen by NextGen Gaming, the Sydney, Australia based slots studio of NYX Gaming Group, to launch its Foxin’ Wins and 300 Shields online slots titles exclusively to Gala Coral’s licensed betting offices and bingo clubs.
Foxin’ Wins is NextGen’s finest online slot of the year to date – five reels of comic capers set in the mansion house of an aristocratic fox and follows his efforts to catch a mischievous leprechaun. Along with the warrior-themed 300 Shields, where players battle against the Spartans in Ancient Greece, it will be available exclusively on B2 and B3 gaming machines in over 1,800 Coral betting shops and 137 Gala Bingo premises. Foxin’ Wins is due to launch across all channels with Coral in the next couple of months and adds to their multi-channel gaming portfolio, supported by Coral’s ‘Connect’ single wallet across land-based and all interactive channels.
Content and systems developer Betdigital is integrating leading gaming supplier NextGen’s popular online games via SystemX. Betdigital’s proprietary platform allows for ultra-quick integrations of just 12 weeks, up to five-times faster than alternative systems.
“Partnering with NextGen to integrate Foxin’ Wins and 300 Shields with Gala Coral highlights just how quickly we can work with operators and third parties to get games from one channel live in another environment,” said Heath Samples, Betdigital CEO. “Having been incredibly popular online, I am sure the titles will now be top performers with Coral and Gala Bingo.”
“We are delighted to be working with Betdigital to launch our games into UK land based premises,” said David Johnson, NYX Gaming Group’s Commercial Director for Games. “Betdigital’s land-based integration capabilities will add significant value to our proven, premium, repeat-play online slots content.”
NextGen Gaming has also just signed an exclusive licensing deal which allows for the creation of slot games featuring 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd character. Judge Dredd stories have for over 37 years generated millions of fans worldwide through comic books, graphic novels, role-playing games, video games and movies. Summer 2014 will see the legendary comic icon begin a new and exciting chapter as he enters the world of online gaming, with the first Judge Dredd slot title developed by NextGen Gaming and available exclusively first via NYX OGS. The partnership covers the licensing of online and mobile slots & bingo games in all formats for worldwide distribution.
Scott Smith, SVP Product at NYX Gaming Group, said: “We’re proud to be working with one of the greatest comic characters of all time in bringing a multi-featured, richly branded gaming experience online with Judge Dredd.”
David Johnson, Commercial Director at NYX Gaming Group, added: “Judge Dredd’s infamous no-nonsense style of law and order married with NextGen’s proven premium, repeat play slots expertise will make for quite the summer blockbuster title. The initial slot game will be available across our industry’s widest distribution network, and initially to our NYX OGS partners.”
