NYX Interactive granted UK gambling licences

UK 2iGaming Business – Online gaming software provider NYX Interactive, a subsidiary of the NYX Gaming Group, has been granted a remote and non-remote operating licence for the supply of gambling software in the UK market.

The licences have been issued shortly after the introduction of a new law in the UK, under which all remote gambling operators in the UK market must obtain a licence from the Gambling Commission to allow them to transact with British customers and advertise in the UK.

David Flynn, senior vice-president of NYX Gaming Group, described the UK as an ‘important’ sector for the company and the licences will allow it to target further growth in the market.

“Following our recent successful licence applications in other European countries, NYX continues its aggressive growth strategy in regulated markets,” Flynn said.

“Both licences were issued just weeks before passing of the UK Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill, putting NYX in a solid position to support the large amount of operators expected to apply for a UK license during the summer.

“The UK is an important part of NYX Gaming Group’s growth strategy, evidenced last week when we went live with Coral who use our NYX Open Gaming System to deliver the best online and mobile casino games.”
