NextGen Games Added to PokerStars New Jersey Product

This story was published more than 8 years ago.

This week NYX Gaming announced that its NextGen gaming studio's library is now live at the PokerStars New Jersey betting site.

The content agreement between NYX and PokerStars will see NextGen slot machines ported over to the company's New Jersey friendly site, which offers poker and casino services throughout the Garden State. Examples of the games now on offer at PokerStars include King Kong- Island of Skull Mountain, An Evening with Holly Madison, Irish Eyes 2, and Judge Dredd.

Commenting on the launch NYX Gaming CEO Matt Davey said, "It's great to see PokerStars launching in New Jersey with over 20 titles from our studio NextGen. This is part of our six-year licensing agreement with Amaya, and follows the successful launch of our games on PokerStars' global online casino. PokerStars is without doubt, one of the most respected and established gaming brands in the world and I'd like to wish their team all the best for a successful launch in New Jersey."

NYX Gaming's Commercial Director David Johnson also commented on the launch, noting: "We're delighted to announce our go-live in New Jersey with PokerStars, who complement a roster of premium, regulated operators licensing content via NYX. With over 650 games and 170 customers worldwide, NYX Gaming Group boasts the widest distribution network of real money wagering slots games in the industry."

PokerStars has had a long road to getting the go-ahead to offer its services in New Jersey, as its former owners The Rational Group had to fend off a series of complaints from officials given the gray-market operation that the company took part in within the United States after the UIGEA was passed into law. Since that time, the company has paid the US Department of Justice millions of dollars to settle lawsuits and has been acquired by Canada-based Amaya, which has worked hard to get PokerStars approved for gaming in New Jersey.

Those games from NYX would be a great addition to the Poker Stars - New Jersey product, now the variety of games will be really impressive which should be a great news to the punters in New Jersey.
