Leading digital gaming provider NYX Gaming Group has announced that it has officially been granted “unconditional registration” as a Class B Supplier from the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GBEP) in British Columbia.
For the first time, NYX will now be allowed to deploy its gaming content in British Columbia.
OpenBet, the sportsbook technology business that NYX acquired in May 2016, was certified in Canada by 2012, holding partnerships with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), Loto-Québec and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation.
In 2016, the BCLC’s combined net win grew to CAD$2.36 billion, with 24% online gaming delivering growth.
NYX Gaming Group Chief Executive Matt Davey commented: “Bringing NYX Gaming Group content to market in a growing and highly regulated jurisdiction like British Columbia is evidence of the synergies we are driving through our integration with OpenBet. “
He went on to say that: “NYX is committed to strict compliance and strong growth in regulated markets, so we are delighted to announce that we have been granted an unconditional registration in British Columbia.”
This news comes after NYX’s recent expansion into the Italian retail market. It was announced towards the end of October that the provider had secured a licensing agreement which granted NYX the right to distribute its gaming content to the Italian-based market.
