NYX Gaming Breaks New Record at Grand National

Publish: 16.04.2017

Las Vegas based NYX Gaming Group, which recently secured licenses in three Canadian provinces, has enjoyed another highly successful Grand National Festival, thanks to its OpenBet sports betting platform.

The highly rated provider for the online gaming industry had earlier set the record for its Cheltenham Festival performance, handling over 225 million of transactions during the 2017 event, while accepting 37,000 bets per minute.

Another Record Broken

There were some doubts as to whether their Grand National performance could be any better due to the nature of the single-day event, but NYX Gaming Group quickly proved the doubters wrong.

The 2017 Grand National saw them process 74 million transactions and staggering 68,000 bets per minute on Saturday, 8th April, processing around 24 million wagers in a 24-hour period.

With an average of 76% of wagers placed via mobile devices, it is now clear that tablets and smartphones have taken over from desktop and laptop computers.

“The Grand National is a major event for our UK customers and months of preparation precedes the day itself. The race places huge demands on our industry and our key focus is enabling our customers to offer the quality of service and experience that players demand,” CEO Matt Davey was quoted as saying.

“With a peak of 68,000 bets-per-minute and total of 24 million bets in 24 hours, we demonstrated the vast scale of the OpenBet platform and the power of our technology. Amazon at its peak in 2016 handled 36,000 transactions per minute, which provides further context to the load and volumes that the platform handled over the Grand National. I am very proud of our performance on Saturday.”
