Evolution Signs DraftKings Deal to Push US Live Casino Offering Further

January 24, 2019 Staff Writer New Casinos & Games, Evolution Gaming 171

After the last year’s rollout of sports betting product in New Jersey, DraftKings is preparing for the Live Casino launch. Evolution Gaming has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide its Live Casino wide selection of products to this daily fantasy sports (DSF) operator.

Evolution Enhances US Footprint

Evolution will provide DraftKings with live dealer games from its second US studio opened in mid-August last year in Atlantic City.

The opening was a historic breakthrough and came as a result of a carefully considered long-term project that now allows Evolution not only to enter US market but also to forge a series of partnerships and cement its position in the market.

The first US studio was opened in Vancouver in January 2018. Both studios offer Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette games available across all devices. The other product in operation out of the US studios is Evolution’s Dual Play Roulette, which allows land-based players and online players to bet on the same table. These tables are available at the Resorts Casino Hotel, Ocean Resort Casino, and Hard Rock Atlantic City.

DraftKings will now join a list of operators that can make the best use out of Evolution’s deal and acquire and grow market share in the exciting new US Live Casino market.

Important Move for DraftKings

DrafKings offers daily fantasy sports contests across 11 professional sports in eight countries including the US, Canada, UK and Australia.

By signing a deal back in August with Resorts Casino Hotel as its licensing partner in New Jersey, DraftKings became the first operator to offer online and mobile sports betting in the state. DraftKings Sportsbook allows players in New Jersey to engage in betting for the major US and international sports.

James Stern, a chief business officer of America and land-based at Evolution, is satisfied with the deal since DraftKings continues to be at a forefront of innovation and development.

 “DraftKings is a young and dynamic company that has blazed a trail in recent years with its best-in-class technology and extensive knowledge of sports.”

“DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its license with the New Jersey regulators. We very much look forward to working with DraftKings on this project,” Stern added.
