LAS VEGAS, May 17, 2017 /CNW/ - NYX Gaming Group (TSX-V: NYX), the market-leading end-to-end supplier and technology provider to sports betting and gaming operators across the globe, has agreed to extend its partnership with Sky Betting and Gaming (Sky Bet).
Following the successful launch of Sky Bet Italia in Q4 2016 on the OpenBet platform, NYX is building a full roadmap of activity to support the rollout of market-leading features and functionality alongside Sky Bet's sportsbook team.

Sky Bet will also expand its content development relationship with NYX, which will see the launch of 36 new gaming titles per annum. Work will be undertaken by NYX in partnership with Sky Bet's internal game development unit, Core Gaming, with all games hosted and distributed by NYX.
Matt Davey, CEO of NYX Gaming Group said: "We're pleased to announce a strengthening of our relationship with the team at Sky Betting and Gaming, and to further support their impressive growth.
