Australia – NYX Gaming to release Psycho onlineBy Phil - 13 January 2015
NextGen Gaming, the Sydney, Australia based slots studio of NYX Gaming Group, is proud to announce the creation of a slot game featuring Psycho, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller that changed the film genre forever through a licensing deal with Universal Partnerships & Licensing.
The online slot is due to be released in the first quarter of 2015.
David Johnson, Commercial Director at NYX Gaming Group said: “We’re very excited to be launching the Psycho online Slot, NextGen’s latest premium IP title and a true thriller slot. Psycho’s infamous scenes married with NextGen’s proven premium, repeat play slots expertise will make for a chilling winter blockbuster title. Psycho will initially be available to our NYX OGS partners and ultimately to the entire industry through our global network.”
The news of the huge licensing deal follows an equally big supply deal. The end of December saw the launch of various mobile and desktop slots titles with Ladbrokes, delivered through the NYX OGS platform.
The games included titles such as Foxin’ Wins and 300 Shields.
Ladbrokes e-Gaming dDirector Richard Poole said: “I’m excited about the partnership with NYX Gaming Group; this supports our strategy of having best of breed suppliers, enabling our customers to play the best slots across multiple channels. NextGen have a strong heritage in slot games but importantly are now producing great mobile content on the NYX OGS platform.”
David Johnson, Commercial Director of NYX Gaming Group, added: “NextGen boast the widest distribution network of real money wagering and social slots games in the online marketplace. We are delighted to announce our partnership and go-live with Ladbrokes and look forward to developing a close relationship across our respective businesses.”
NYX Gaming also recently completed the purchase of OnGame Poker from Amaya Gaming. NYX has been quick to use the technology to add mobile Sit & Go tournaments to its NYX Poker product.
David Flynn, Executive Vice-President of business development at NYX Gaming Group, said: “Having the ability to launch Sit & Go tournaments via our mobile and tablet poker products is an essential part of any poker offering. Both customer and player feedback has been great and we are looking forward to building on this latest release with new features and functionality. These games are now available for iOS mobile and tablet players in our .com, Danish, Belgian, UK and Italian facing products, with operators such as PAF, Pokerheaven, Best Poker and Interpoker. We are encouraged with the uptake and popularity of this game format as we continue to drive innovative features in the NYX Poker product.”
