NYX Gaming Group wins Romania license, inks Portugal, Latin America deals

nyx-romania-solverde-luckiaGambling technology supplier NYX Gaming Group has received a new gambling license in Romania.

On Friday, the Toronto-listed NYX announced it had been issued a Class 2 license from Romania’s Oficiul National Pentru Jocuri de Noroc (ONJN), allowing it to supply its Open Gaming System (OGS) platform to current and future Romanian gaming licensees.

Earlier this week, NYX announced it had inked a memorandum of understanding with Solverde S.A., which operates five brick-and-mortar casinos in Portugal. The casino operator has expressed an interest in participating in the newly regulated Portuguese online gambling market.

In addition to using NYX’s Open Platform System (OPS), Solverde will also incorporate the online slots and scratch card titles of NYX subsidiary NextGen Gaming. Solverde director Americo Loureiro said NYX had won the job based on its “demonstrated capacity, quality of service presented and, above all, the client portfolio it already holds.”

Last week, the Luckia Gaming Group, Spain’s third-largest gaming group, announced it had chosen NYX to expand its domestic business while pursuing new business in Latin American markets. Like Solverde, Luckia intends to use both NYX’s OPS and its NextGen titles.

Luckia operates four brick-and-mortar casinos and 76 other gaming venues in Spain. Luckia also has operations in Croatia, Chile, Peru, Panama and Colombia, and wants NYX to help it expand its online business in these markets, as well as its land-based portfolio of café’s and casinos.
