After much wrangling, including threatened legal spats, Scientific Games finally concluded its purchase of NYX Gaming on 5 January.
“Today, Scientific Games moves forward as a leading digital provider of sports betting, iGaming and iLottery technologies, platforms, content, products and services,” said Kevin Sheehan, Scientific Games CEO and president, said.
“As we look to 2018, we are truly excited by the opportunities that this acquisition presents to us.”
Scientific Games is now planning to capitalise on future regulatory developments in real-money wagering and sports betting by adding NYX’s OpenBet Sportsbook.
NYX’s ordinary shares are expected to be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange on or before the close of business on 10 January.
