Casino Software Game Guide

NYX/Next Gen Gaming


Launched in 1999, NextGen Gaming turned into NYX Gaming Group following its merger with NYX. The company has its headquarters in London and offices in Sydney and Stockholm. Since it was launched several years ago, the company has ample experience in developing online casino gaming content.

NextGen History

Not many people have actually heard of NextGen Gaming. This is because NextGen’s focus is on B2B and most of its games are distributed as games developed by Amaya Gaming, Quickfire, Microgaming, and others. Some of the most popular slots released by NextGen Gaming are Dolphin Reef, Medusa, The Snake Charmer, Doctor Love, and more.

NextGen has a definite advantage over other software developers because they have engineering as well as software departments. The vendor has hired several experienced staff members to create games that can be smoothly integrated into operators’ existing systems.

NextGen Software Features

✓  NextGen has developed games with unique features such as UP Wilds, Slide a Wild, and Dynareel. The focus is on slots, not other varieties of online casino games. NextGen games feature exciting three dimensional graphics, amusing animations, and entertaining soundtracks.

✓  Players do not have to download any software to enjoy NextGen games as they are all available in the Flash format. Players do not have to download any software to play the games as they can be loaded directly in the browser.

✓  NextGen does not develop its own video poker games and table games. But the vendor has signed strategic deals with other companies and develops other online casino games in collaboration with its partners.

✓  NextGen slots can be played on desktops, land-based casinos, mobile devices, and social networking sites. Players can play them for fun or real money. Since the vendor’s focus is on innovation and on delivering games for players all over the world, it has gained an understanding of the needs of international players, thus giving the vendor a definite advantage over other vendors in the industry.

More about NextGen

NextGen bagged a special achievement award at EGR B2B. The provider was awarded for forward thinking and innovation in creating high quality online gambling content. When compared to bigger providers such as NetEnt and Microgaming, NextGen is a smaller provider although it has signed a number of strategic deals. Since NextGen has created a complete casino gaming software platform, it cannot be used to power the entire casino. Therefore, NextGen games are offered along with casino games from other providers such as NetEnt, Yggdrasil, and Play N Go. Although NextGen does not make the payout percentage of each of its games public, it does supply the information to casinos that display it on their websites.

NextGen is not a complete casino gaming software solution, owing to which players will never find a casino that operates entirely on NextGen software. Players who want to play NextGen games can find them at reputed multi-provider casinos.
