YX will provide Golden Nugget with its innovative Online Gaming Platform, a brand new website and enhanced mobile applications by December 2015. This partnership will start with Golden Nugget launching hit titles from NYX’s content division NextGen Gaming on its current website and mobile applications this summer.
“We are delighted to have been chosen by Golden Nugget as a strategic partner to further strengthen their presence in the New Jersey online gaming market,” said Matt Davey, Chief Executive Officer of NYX. “Golden Nugget has built an impressive online business while quickly establishing itself as one of the leaders in this rapidly emerging market”.
“Having experienced considerable success to date, we look forward to continuing our growth with NYX as a partner,” said Thomas Winter, Vice President Online Gaming of Golden Nugget. “NYX has impressed us with their world-class gaming technology, open content approach and proven commitment to invest in the market. With NYX’s help, we intend to take user experience to a whole new level for New Jersey online casino players”.
This strategic partnership follows the closing of the previously announced acquisition by NYX of the remaining 50% of Sportech-NYX Gaming, LLC from NYX’s joint venture partner Sportech Games Holdco, LLC and its previously announced expanded content distribution agreement with Scientific Games. This agreement marks an important milestone for the Company, expanding the total number of online gaming platform partnerships to 50% of all current authorised Internet gaming operators in New Jersey.
According to the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement, as of May 2015, the New Jersey online casino revenues were up 19.1% year-over-year.
