Big deals are a…big deal. Take for instance Disney’s takeover of Marvel and Lucasfilm and potentially taking over Fox. It could see it control 40% of the box office if this happens. When we heard the news last year that Scientific Games was to acquire NYX, we were unsure of what this would mean. But with release after release of excellent new slots, it’s already proved fruitful for slots fans.
A Flaming Good Deal
When Scientific Games Corporation acquired the fat cat NYX Gaming Group, it took over all of the outstanding shares of NYX. But that didn’t mean the NYX name was going to disappear. Far from it. And we’re thankful for that, because it meant that NYX now had the backing, support and financial capabilities of a giant corporation. The group worked in partnership to develop new and improved slots. One such example of this is the Flame slot that came out under the Scientific Games Interactive brand.
Flame is a five reel, 20 payline slot which benefits from the NextGen name. And also the look, feel, superior graphics and amazing bonuses that are associated with it. How so? Not only do we have impressive flaming visuals with gentle fire licking the screen but we have seven bonuses that can be activated at any point within the base game. Each of these adds a range of rewards such as multipliers, extra Wilds or re-spins. Then we have the Free Games feature on top to add even more chances of landing those blazing wins we crave.
The Real Winner Is Us
Obviously, the big companies out there can slap each other on the back, but the real winner of any mergers or takeovers is us. We’re not going to have to suffer from J.J. Abrams directing any slots. We just get the best technology, the best themes and the best bonuses. And we’ve already seen it in action. We can’t wait for more.
