Updating the market, Sky Betting & Gaming (SB&G) has confirmed that it has extended its lead platform provider partnership with NYX Gaming’s OpenBet systems.
The renewal of partnership follows the successful launch of Sky Bet Italia in Q4 2016 on the OpenBet platform. NYX detailed that moving forward it would support SB&G’s international market initiatives, building a full roadmap of activity to support the rollout of new features and functionality working alongside the operator’s sportsbook team.
The partnership will further see a deeper integration of NYX’s Open Gaming System (OGS) with SB&G’s UK and Italian online casino properties. NYX OGS aims to deliver 36 new gaming titles to SB&G properties per year and giving its partner access to over 1000 games titles.
In 2016, SB&G acted as a deal funding co-partner for NYX Gaming £270 million acquisition of leading industry sports betting platform provider Openbet.
Richard Flint, CEO of Sky Betting and Gaming, commented on the extension: “NYX Gaming Group, via OpenBet, has been an integral component of our business since day one, the performance and stability of the platform.
