Currently, Roxor’s platform is live in New Jersey, which both companies now plan to expand in North America and the UK.

Noel Hayden, Executive Chairman, Roxor Gaming Board, said of the deal: “I am delighted to see this deal signed, as I feel it brings together two great companies that complement each other perfectly.

“Roxor holds a very important place in my heart, as the team and the games we have built have delivered so much to so many over the last 20 years. I couldn’t be more excited for Roxor Gaming and the road ahead.”

The deal, which is still subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions, is expected to complete early in 2023.

Mitchell Bowen, CEO, Online RMG, Aristocrat, added: “Roxor is a great fit for Aristocrat and this acquisition is another step forward in Aristocrat’s strategy to scale in online RMG. We look forward to growing together with the talented Roxor team.”

Meanwhile, Josh Morris, General Manager, Roxor Gaming, further commented: “This deal has happened at the perfect time for Roxor Gaming as we look to expand, and grow through new partnerships in the US and UK markets.

“Aristocrat has a huge heritage of global success, and I feel the combination of Roxor and Aristocrat brings a significant opportunity to build the most entertaining and widely adopted iGaming solution in the market”.

Earlier this year, Aristocrat posted a 23% revenue increase for the first six months of the year, ending in March, of AU$2.75bn (US$1.92bn).
