Spanish gaming operator Luckia Gaming Group has signed a long-term partnership with NYX Gaming Group to drive its omni-channel growth across a number of key markets.

Through the deal Luckia is aiming to speed up its growth in Spain's online gaming market, as well as in other territories such as Croatia, Chile, Peru, Panama and Colombia, with NYX also supporting the operator as it looks to exploit new business opportunities and newly-regulated markets. 

The operator, previously known as EGASA, is Spain's third-largest gaming group, and has been active in the sector for more than 35 years. It operates four land-based casino, 76 gaming establishments and more than 7,599 points of sales, in addition to its gaming site.

Key to these expansion plans will be NYX's Open Platform System, which it will deploy for Luckia, as well as providing the company with slots and scratchcard games from its NextGen Gaming subsidiary. The supplier will also roll out content for the operator's land-based portfolio of cafes and casinos. 

“Luckia Gaming Group is one of the fastest growing groups in the omni-channel space, having gained significant market-share and winning several prestigious awards in Spain,” NYX executive vice president of business development David Flynn commented. 

"We are very excited that Luckia has chosen the NYX Open Platform System to build its future upon," he said. "Through our partnership, they will be working with one of the world's most flexible gaming platforms and responsive teams in the online gaming market."

Luckia Gaming Group business director Marcelo Ruiz commented: “NYX vision, commitment, solutions and professionalism will allow Luckia Gaming Group to enhance our value proposition to our customers and will allow us to achieve our wanted position in the gambling industry.

"We are excited to offer the NYX solutions and content to our customers and to take advantage of its outstanding capabilities and functionalities."
