Scientific Games Corp. has launched SG Digital, combining its portfolio of SG Interactive B2B with that of NYX Gaming Group, which it acquired in January. With the combination, Scientific Games aims to become the most diverse sports-betting and digital-gaming technology and content developer and supplier in the industry.
Combining some of the most well-established and successful iGaming, iLottery, and sports-gaming brands, the newly created brand boasts groundbreaking products from the company’s in-house development studios, including Barcrest, Bally, WMS, and NextGen. The new brand is expected to give a boost to the company’s product offerings, which include the award-winning SG Universe, an online solution for land-based casinos developed by SG Interactive, and OpenBet, a sports-betting platform developed by NYX Gaming Group.
Presiding over the asset combination were Matt Davey, former CEO of NYX Gaming, who has been appointed the group’s chief executive, and Jason Walbridge, who has been appointed SG Digital ‘chief operating officer.
After the merger, Kevin Sheehan, Scientific Games’ president and chief executive officer, said SG Digital is the beginning of an exciting new era for Scientific Games and a confirmation of the company’s ambition to provide the best technology and contents to the gaming industry. He said the company’s vision was to be the leading supplier of iGaming, iLottery, and sports-gaming solutions in the world.
He added that Scientific Game’s focus will be on delivering an even better proposition to customers with the company’s unique products, innovative brands, and market services created by a pool of highly talented developers and engineers from SG Digital. He said that with the acquisition, the company is perfectly positioned to take advantage of any regulatory developments anywhere in the world in the future.
Echoing Sheehan’s sentiment, Matt Davey, SG Digital Group chief executive, said that the acquisition of NYX Gaming and the creation of SG Digital is part of a well-planned strategy and he felt privileged to be given the opportunity to lead the newly formed division. He said that the division was busy integrating the systems, platform, and contents to provide seamless iGaming, iLottery, and sports-gaming solutions.
The newly formed division will have a workforce of more than 1,500 spread across 35 offices in the United States and elsewhere. It will serve customers with more than 2,000 games in 40 different locations worldwide. The division is an addition to the company’s three existing core divisions, namely Lottery, Gaming, and Social Business.
