Bonnier to use NYX games; 15 Network gets close to its magic number; Isle of Man launches iGaming education

news in brief 200x141Malta-based Bonnier Gaming has signed up to use NYX Interactive’s Open Gaming System (OGS) within three of its casino sites. The company gets a selection of casino games from NYX and has launched the first tranche on their site. Games will also appear on and in the coming weeks and it gives them access to games from anyone that releases content through NYX’s OGS. David Flynn, CEO of NYX added: “The NYX OGS system is rapidly becoming the leading Casino Platform for Licensed Operators. The way in which we seamlessly deliver new games through OGS ensures our clients are first to market with new games content.” Bonnier focuses its attention on Scandinavia and as such customers in those markets will play many of the games.

Bingo platform 15 Network has signed up another four brands thus taking another step towards making their name mean a whole lot more. The latest four brands, Zingo Bingo, Bingo Clubhouse, Charity Bingo and Cheers Bingo take the number up to six and they’re within striking distance of reaching the big one-five.

A qualification in iGaming is being launched in the Isle of Man next year for budding gaming entrepreneurs. The course, thought to be the first of its kind, can be taken at the Isle of Man College of Further and Higher Education and will initially be available as a postgraduate course from January 2013. It has been accredited by the University of Chester and Ray Davies, head of iGaming development on the Isle of Man, told eGR: “‘The sense from industry is that it is keen to up-skill the local workforce in order to drive growth, and they want degree-level candidates. While we have not consulted with regulators in other territories yet, we suspect in the long-term there will be interest from further afield as UK-recognised courses are generally recognised across the world.”
