Toronto-listed supplier NYX Gaming Group has been awarded a licence to offer its services to clients in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

The award of the Class B supplier licence from the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) allows NYX to provide gaming content and technical solutions to the province's licensed gaming operators.

It follows NYX's £270m acquisition of OpenBet in April this year. OpenBet has been active across Canada since 2012, working with Loto-Québec, the Atlantic Lottery Corporation and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

British bookmaker William Hill also received approval as an associate of NYX, having invested £80m in the supplier to help fund the acquisition.

NYX Gaming Group chief executive Matt Davey said he was delighted with the unconditional registration, adding that NYX is committed to strict compliance and strong growth in regulated markets.

"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," he said.

Shares in NYX Gaming Group Ltd (Co.Data) (TSX:NYX) closed in Toronto Thursday at CAD$1.51 per share, just ahead of their 52-week low of $1.48 per share set on November 2nd.
