PokerStars recently announced that it has partnered with NYX Gaming Group Limited to launch its online poker services into the Romanian market. The biggest online poker website in the world was given a full license by the Oficiul National pentru Jocuri de Noroc (ONJN), the country’s gaming regulator in August to launch its services in Romania.
The licensing period started from September 1 and PokerStars will use its PokerStars.ro domain to offer online poker services to poker players in the country. The partnership with the NYX Gaming Group will enable PokerStars to offer its Romanian players digital gaming content from NYX. PokerStars has already launched the company’s flagship Open Gaming System (OGS) in Romania.
NYX Gaming Group is one of the market leaders in gaming content and technology to gaming and casino operators as well as lotteries across the world. The company has focused on expanding its services across the globe and the partnership with PokerStars in Romania will continue to cement its reputation as being a market leader in the gaming industry. The company has been cautious to only expand into regulated international markets in order to have a seamless operation.
The PokerStars.ro domain will now offer a number of high performance games developed by NYX studios. Some of these popular games from the NextGen Gaming series include James Dean, Jackpot Jester 50,000 and Foxin’ Wins. PokerStars has also experienced a lot of success with its online casino offering which it launched during the fourth quarter of 2014 and is now reported to have the biggest database of active online casino players.
In a statement, Sam Hobcraft, Director of Casino at Amaya, owner of PokerStars, said, “We are pleased to have games from NYX on our new PokerStars.RO domain. The launch of a full license in Romania will aid our goal of assuming a leadership position in online casino across Europe.”
David Johnson, the Commercial Director of the NYX Gaming Group stated that PokerStars and NYX had established a strong relationship and this new venture into Romania will enable PokerStars.ro to offer its players games that have a proven quality. Other gambling providers who obtain licenses in Romania will also have the option to leverage the OGS platform and make full use of NYX’s wide range of games via the same solution that PokerStars is using.
