Company partners with Ezugi to deliver Live Dealer via the NYX Open Gaming System Platform.
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 22, 2016 /CNW/ - NYX Gaming Group Limited (TSX VENTURE: NYX) ("NYX Gaming Group"), a market leading content and technology supplier to lotteries, casinos and gaming operators across the globe, is excited to announce the launch of live dealer in New Jersey via its Open Gaming System (OGS) platform. In August of this year, NYX partnered with Ezugi NJ to deliver the first and only live dealer product for digital gaming in the US on GoldenNuggetCasino.com.
Through the Live Dealer product, actual professional casino dealers run table games such as Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette, which is streamed online via live streaming video. Players can place real-money bets and interact with real dealers at the casino, as well as other players at the table; replicating the feeling of being on the casino floor. The pace of game play is designed to mimic on-property gaming with real cards, tables, and roulette wheels to determine game outcomes. Wagering, playability and payout are all calculated in microseconds and displayed in real time on the players' screen.
Kevin Vonasek, Chief Product Officer Americas stated, "We are thrilled to be the first RGS supplier to deliver live dealer in regulated US markets via our award winning Open Gaming System (OGS) network. Live dealer bridges the gap between online and traditional bricks and mortar by engaging slightly younger players who typically play online while at the same time building trust with the traditional on property players who are not accepting of the digital representation of a game." He added, "As the history of US casino gaming has been dominated by brick & mortar casinos, Live Dealer is truly a great way to bring a similar game play experience into the palm of the player's hand."
Kfir Kugler, Ezugi's Chief Executive Officer commented, "We pride ourselves on giving players the most realistic gaming experience possible and we are excited to work with NYX to bring the first ever online live dealer solution to New Jersey." He added, "The OGS platform is a great delivery system for our market-leading content and we look forward to working with NYX to roll it out to more operators."
NYX will be demonstrating it live dealer and its other best-of-breed content at G2E booth #4023 September 27 – 29 at The Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas.
