A leading provider of innovative technology to the regulated online gaming market

NYX Interactive specializes in developing gaming system and software solutions for World Lottery Association members, media companies and gaming companies worldwide.

The company has rapidly established itself as a highly innovative player in the gaming and entertainment technology market, working with top players such as State-owned Svenska Spel, for which it developed the lottery system.

NYX Interactive was founded in 2006 and has since then won multiple awards thanks to leading edge, full-featured products and solutions such as NYX Bingo that can support a multi-channel strategy.

Acquiring NextGen to create a global e-gaming technology powerhouse with over 300 gaming titles

In November 2011, NYX Interactive combined forces with NextGen Gaming, a leading Australia-based provider of proprietary and branded games across online, land-based, social and mobile gaming distribution channels.

The acquisition brings together two experienced international software providers leveraging their compatible customer base and complementary product offerings to deliver a broader roadmap of products and services to their customers.

With a combined catalogue of over 300 gaming titles, the new entity will be much stronger and its customers will benefit from NextGen’s leading-edge games studio which produces some of the industry’s best performing games.
