Scientifc Games buys Nyx Gaming for $631 million

By Sophie Couard

A few days ago, an announcement shook the online gambling industry. The two groups Scientific Games and Nyx Gaming are preparing to merge for $631 million. At present, very little information has yet been filtered. Nevertheless, we will discuss together what we know about this case immediately.

To further expand its presence in the casino games and online sports betting market, Scientific Games will acquire Nyx Gaming.

A name that should remain identical

It seems that it is Scientific Games that includes Nyx Gaming's operations involving both casino games and sports betting. A priori, Scientific Games should keep its name because that's what happened when it swallowed Bally Technologies and WMS. The likelihood of a new organization being created as a result of this association is therefore relatively low.

A stronger presence in casino and online sports betting

Scientific Games is already active in the lottery market and already offers a few online casino games in its catalogue. However, this is not his specialty at all. The future purchase of Nyx Games will therefore enable it to establish itself even further in this field as well as that of online sports betting.
