NYX and Ezugi claim US-first with live dealer launch
NYX Gaming Group has joined forces with Ezugi to launch what it said is the first live dealer product in the US.
Delivered via NYX’s Open Gaming System (OGS), the new service is available on GoldenNuggetCasino.com in the regulated New Jersey market.
The product features live video streams of games run by actual casino dealers, with the likes of baccarat, blackjack and roulette on offer.
Players can place real-money bets and interact with the dealers at the table, with wagering, playability and payout all calculated in microseconds and displayed in real-time on customers’ screens.
“Live dealer bridges the gap between online and traditional bricks and mortar by engaging slightly younger players who typically play online while at the same time building trust with the traditional on property players who are not accepting of the digital representation of a game,” NYX’s chief product officer Americas, Kevin Vonasek, said.
“As the history of US casino gaming has been dominated by brick and mortar casinos, live dealer is truly a great way to bring a similar game play experience into the palm of the player’s hand.”
Kfir Kugler, chief executive of Ezugil added: “We pride ourselves on giving players the most realistic gaming experience possible and we are excited to work with NYX to bring the first ever online live dealer solution to New Jersey.
“The OGS platform is a great delivery system for our market-leading content and we look forward to working with NYX to roll it out to more operators.”
