NYX Gaming, a Provider of Casino Games
According to certain sources, the developer started its activities as far back as in 1999, which is not true though. In fact, there is no gaming studio called NYX Gaming today, inasmuch as the company was transformed into a publisher and is not a developer any more. This story began back in 2011, when the firm became a partner of NextGen Gaming. 3 years later, NYX Gaming was merged with Scientific Gaming. That is why, in any casino, games of all the three abovementioned companies can be found either under the brand name of NextGen Gaming or that of SG. Only in few casinos, mostly European ones, one can see the NYX Gaming brand name.
There are many casinos with slots by NYX Gaming out there, including such industry giants as 888, IGT, ELK Studios and Thunderkick. In total, about 200 online casinos offer the provider’s products. The company’s reach grew from the only city to eighteen, including Sydney, Stockholm, Rome, Malta, Gibraltar and others. Currently, the company hires over 1000 people; additionally, up to 500 people work remotely.
According to the company’s team, people like playing slots by NYX Gaming mainly because the company pays much attention to details in each and every project. This is especially obvious when you consider their bonus rounds, which were designed with the least details in mind. Additionally, the provider’s products offer immersive user experience.
Along with online slots, the studio also creates bingos and lotteries, which are not numerous though. There are only 5 bingo games and 7 lotteries. Such table games as craps, poker or scratch games are available too. However, all the table games have graphical rather than live presentation. Along with delivering gambling experiences, the provider also develops games for the social network of Facebook.
Online casinos with the NYX Gaming provider are considered fair-play websites and hold license certificates from such prestigious jurisdictions as Curacao, the Isle of Man, Malta and Great Britain.
In 2016, NYX Gaming was awarded a prize highly respected in the gambling industry, the Best Provider of Online Gaming Platforms. The title was assigned by iGaming North America in the USA.
Most products of this developer can be run both in a PC browser and on mobile devices.
The studio is headquartered in Los Angeles, USA. Today, the provider partners with other developers and helps them create their games by buying studios all over the world.
