NYX Gaming Group approved by British Columbia regulator

LAS VEGAS, November 3, 2016: NYX Gaming Group Limited (TSXV:NYX) ), a market leading end-to-end supplier to lotteries, casinos and gaming operators across the globe, has been granted unconditional registration as a Class B Supplier from the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) in British Columbia.

The registration permits NYX to deploy its market-leading content in British Columbia for the first time. The NYX sportsbook technology business, OpenBet, was certified in Canada in 2012, where they have longstanding partnerships with BCLC, Loto-Québec and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation.

In 2016, British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s (BCLC) combined net win grew to CAD$2.36bn with much of the growth attributed to the expansion of online gaming, which delivered 24% year-on-year growth.

Matt Davey, Group CEO NYX Gaming Group, 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 work with OpenBet.

“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.”

Regulatory standards in British Columbia are widely respected as among the most comprehensive within the gaming industry.

The GPEB regulates all gaming in British Columbia, ensures the integrity of gaming industry companies, people and equipment, and ensures compliance with policies established under B.C.'s Gaming Control Act. This includes regulatory oversight of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), B.C.'s horse racing industry, and licensed gaming events.
