The awards are confirmation that together, NYX Gaming Group and OpenBet now hold a best-in-breed platform offer across all verticals and channels.
NYX Gaming Group CEO Matt Davey commented: "We are delighted to have been awarded multiple prestigious titles at this year's EGR B2B Awards.
"The NYX Gaming Group acquisition of OpenBet was designed to ensure that our customers have access to the very best platforms and content across all verticals, and to be acknowledged in this way by the industry is confirmation that we are doing exactly that. We are committed to investing further in our content and technology to ensure we continue to deliver new and exciting opportunities for our customers."
