About NextGen Gaming
NextGen Gaming Generation is one of the longest-established gaming companies in the business – they date right back to the last century! OK, by that we mean 1999 – but that is still pretty long-term considering the online gaming industry was in its infancy in those far off early internet days.
Home-grown NextGen have headquarters in London, and offices in Australia (Sydney) and Sweden (Stockholm), meaning they have a truly global reach, with all the business benefits this brings.
NextGen and NYX Gaming
In 2011, NextGen merged with the global NYX Gaming Group, which provides casino platforms and lottery games to online and land-based companies across the world.
However, NextGen Gaming itself concentrates on excellence in its own field. They focus solely on slots, so you won’t find any NextGen table games, and no video poker or scratch cards either.
Instead, the company concentrates on slot game development and software. This makes for a much smoother experience for operators when they are integrating NextGen games into their online casino.
NextGen slot games are popular because of their features – they regularly include bonus games, free spins, a myriad of unusual features and other unique additions.
There are hundreds of them out there, and NextGen slots you will have enjoyed playing include Doctor Love, 300 Shields, Merlin's Millions, Dolphin Reef, Irish Eyes and Medusa. Our favourite is Crocodopolis, and its awesome slide-a-wild feature.
However, you may not have realised you were playing a NextGen slot as they licence their games to other providers, such as Aristocrat, Amaya and Bally, as well as Quickfire, GTS, Playtech and Openbet.
The company also provide real-life video slots for casinos and other land-based gaming establishments. A link-up with Gala Coral in 2014 brought a lot of fantastic NextGen games right onto the high street.
This included a tie-in with the land-based version of Foxin' Wilds, which proved to be one of the most successful slot debuts ever.
NextGen Casino site partner include such market-leaders as Mr Green, BGO Vegas and Gala Casino.
Forward-thinking NextGen have pretty much got the mobile gaming market covered. Recognising that the future lay in smartphone and casual gaming, the vast majority of their games have been available in both Flash and HTML5 from the get-go. They come mobile-ready and are available to download from the Apple App Store. It isn't that gaming on a desktop is being phased out, just that more and more of us want to take the fun with us in our pockets wherever we go.
In addition, NextGen are major players on Facebook’s phenomenally successful slot site, at a time when social networks are attracting hundreds of thousands of users to their free play game pages. To summarise, NextGen are a well-named operation, providing tomorrow's generation of gaming solutions today, an admirable trait in today's impatient and demanding world. Their Facebook presence is so successful they received EGR Magazine’s B2B Award for Social Gaming Supplier of the Year in 2012. This was in recognition of their fully hosted social gaming app that provided everything operators needed to operate the play-for-fun slot site.

This innovative company aim to take the market by storm by making multiplayer slots, and casino gaming a truly a social activity.
