Gaming technology provider White Hat Gaming has become the first company to sign up to distribute NYX Poker, the poker network formerly known as Ongame and recently acquired by NYX Gaming Group.

White Hat, a long-term distribution partner of NYX, will offer its clients access to NYX's online poker platform, alongside the supplier's remote gaming server, the NYX Open Games System (OGS).

Currently licensed in Curaçao and the UK, White Hat works with a number of lower-tier operators including Gday Casino, Fruity Casa, 21 Prive, Cyber Club Casino and Playgrand Casino. It also provides content supplied by the likes of Leander Games and Aristocrat, with live dealer games supplied by Ezugi.

NYX executive vice president of business development David Flynn described White Hat as a “fast-moving, full service provider,” and said he was pleased that NYX Poker was attracting interest from new customers.

“The team at NYX have been working very hard post the acquisition of Ongame and it is great to see that in such a short space of time, we are beginning to see a number of potential new clients to our NYX Poker product,” Flynn said.

White Hat Gaming chief executive Max Wright said he was thrilled to expand upon what he described as “an already outstanding partnership” to launch a poker product for the first time.
