Evolution Gaming Opens Live Casino Studio in New Jersey
New Jersey’s online casinos have seen a huge increase in live studio play as Evolution Gaming has opened its first live online studio in Atlantic City.
Evolution has already announced partnerships with 888 Casino, Resorts Casino Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, PlaySugarHouse.com operated by Rush Street Interactive and Ocean Resort Casino Atlantic City to offer live-studio play. Hard Rock, 888 and PlaySugarHouse have all launched live-studio play this month.
They join Golden Nugget Atlantic City, Betfair and the Borgata casino—which include the PlayMGM and PartyCasino sites along with BorgataCasino—in the state to offer live-studio play.
Evolution also offers dual play roulette tables, for on-premises and online play, for the gaming floors of Resorts Casino Hotel, Ocean Resort Casino and Hard Rock in the state.
“Our entry into the US market has been a carefully considered long-term project,” said Martin Carlesund, Evolution CEO in a press release. “Having closely monitored US market developments over the past few years, while reinforcing our position as live casino market leaders in Europe, we believe that now is the right time to launch with a full-fledged studio facility for the US.
“Now we have a fantastic live casino studio in New Jersey—with a wide choice of live games from day one, and ample room for expansion and the rapid ramping up of services to meet our new US licensees’ needs,” he said. “We are now extremely well placed to support our licensees as they acquire and grow market share in the exciting new US live casino market.”
The New Jersey studio will initially offer ten tables of various games including American roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and Slingshot Roulette. The casino will also offer exclusive games Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em Poker. All games will be compatible on desktop and mobile devices, the release said
Evolution has already announced it plans to expand the studio for further game launches and additional tables. Included would be dedicated tables that can be used by operators for live sporting event promotions, and to cross-promote land-based casino attractions, the release said.
