NYX Gaming Group has signed a letter of intent with de Nederlandse Staatsloterij / De Lotto to execute an agreement for an integration of digital gaming content and player account management via NYX’s Open Platform System (OPS).
NYX began their evaluation of the venture in December 2015 when de Nederlandse Staatsloterij (The Dutch State Lottery) and De Lotto were given approval to merge by competition regulators in the Netherlands. It will create a €1bn (£725m) lottery operator and the merger will soon be completed.
In addition to the integration of OPS, the agreement will see market leading slots and scratch card titles from NYX’s wholly owned subsidiary NextGen Gaming launch across their sites. Games such as Foxin’ Wins, Jackpot Jester 50,000 and Merlin’s Millions Superbet will be available immediately upon launch in the future licensed market.
NYX Gaming Group CEO Matt Davey said: “It’s a privilege to be working with de Nederlandse Staatsloterij / De Lotto to bring NYX’s OPS platform and our market leading content to their soon to be merged business. Global revenue forecasts for the lottery industry recently topped €260bn. As one of the few gaming content and platform providers with World Lottery Association Membership, we are well positioned to work in partnership with national lotteries across the globe.”
