Evolution Gaming continues its expansion across the US with a strategic partnership to provide live casino games to FanDuel Group. The live casino gaming company also has partnerships with DraftKings and Rush Street Interactive in Pennsylvania. The Fanduel partnership focuses on Pennsylvania, but it will soon expand to New Jersey.
Evolution Gaming established a studio in New Jersey back in 2018, employing more than 50 people. The company also operates several Evolution Dual Play Roulette tables in Atlantic City at Resorts Casino Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, and Ocean Resort Casino.
The Evolution live casino game studio in New Jersey provides a cutting-edge B2B Live Casino solution for many operators who want to offer live casino gaming to their online players on a smartphone, tablet, and desktop.
The New Jersey studio offers at least 10 live, online table games as well as a wide variety of Evolution game variants, such as Slingshot Roulette, Three Card Poker, and Blackjack with side bets. The studio even has dedicated tables that can be used to cross-promote land-based casinos, and for live sporting event promotions
Jesse Chemtob, FanDuel Group’s general manager, had this to say, “We’re very excited to offer our loyal customers more Live Casino games through Evolution Gaming. We think live casino games are strategic for FanDuel’s continued growth in the online casino market in the US. FanDuel now has access to Evolution’s entire Live Casino portfolio.”
Johan Nordstrom, Chief Executive Officer Malta and Chief Commercial Officer at Evolution, added, “Late last year we signed a strategic deal with Flutter Entertainment’s other brands, Betfair and Paddy Power. We’re now thrilled to work with another Flutter brand, FanDuel, in the fast-growing US market.”
Many Strategic Partnerships for Evolution Gaming
Back in September, Evolution Gaming signed an agreement to provide nationwide live table games and game show-style games toBetMGM. That agreement also included the affiliated brands’ Borgata Online and Party Casino in New Jersey. Working with BetMGM, Evolution Gaming is among the first live, online casino game providers in the Michigan and Pennsylvania markets; Evolution plans to build new live gaming studios in those two states.
In October, Evolution signed a deal with Rush Street Interactive, which operates PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers, for live dealer casino games in Pennsylvania. That same month, Evolution also signed an agreement with Wynn Sports Interactive to offer live casino games in New Jersey. Finally, Evolution also signed a deal with William Hill in October to supply live casino games across the US.
Evolution Acquired NetEnt for Online Slots
Bolstering its offerings, earlier this summer, Evolution Gaming acquired NetEnt, a provider of online slot games. Founded in 1996, NetEnt is a world-class digital developer and entertainment provider of online games. NetEnt launched its first online casino in 2000, and employs more than 1,000 people all over the world.
Evolution’s Live Casino offerings with NetEnt’s online slots helped to drive the company’s domination of the New Jersey market. The combination of online slot games and live casino table games provides operators with the ability to generate revenue through cross-selling.
FanDuel Radio Deal
In late October, FanDuel entered into a six-year agreement with Entercom Communications, a US sports radio group. The deal made FanDuel the radio network’s official sports betting partner. Entercom owns 39 sports broadcast stations across the country, including WSCR-AM (670 The Score) in Chicago, WFAN 101.9 FM/660 AM in New York, and WIP-FM (SportsRadio 94WIP) in Philadelphia. The deal also includes the company’s stations on RADIO.COM.
