NYX Gaming announced it was entering the New Jersey online gaming market after its joint venture with Sportech secured a partnership deal with Resorts Casino Hotel.
It had appeared that Resorts Casino Hotel was set to offer online gambling products after it had agreed a partnership deal with online poker site Pokerstars. However, that deal fell through at the last minute allowing for NYX Gaming and Sportech to swoop in and secure a partnership agreement with the land-based casino.
NYX Gaming and Sportech will both invest $2 million into the new online gaming venture with Resorts Hotel and Casino. The agreement will also see NYX Gaming offer its portfolio of slots and other online casino games for players to enjoy through the Resorts Casino Hotel online offering.
NYX Gaming are the parent company of online slots developer NextGen Gaming that is responsible for a range of top slots releases including the latin-themed Spanish Eyes and the recently released Medusa II slot.
NYX Gaming CEO Matt Davey stated “Resorts is one of the few brands with legitimate claim to New Jersey and holds an iconic position in the industry. The combination of NYX’s flexible gaming solutions and extensive library of high quality game content will be key contributors to the unique positioning and success of Resorts i-gaming venture.”
