Following Scientific Games’ acquisition of Lightning Box last week, the supplier’s CEO Peter Causley speaks exclusively to Gambling Insider.
How long was this merger in the making and what are your immediate thoughts and feelings on the deal?
About 17 years! I think since we first partnered with NextGen back in 2015, flowing into NYX & then their subsequent sale to Scientific Games, we have always been closely aligned. This was just the most natural fit for our team; it feels right. All up the actual process took six months from start to close.
