Evolution Gaming Prioritizes ‘Extending the Gap’

Staff Writer Industry News, Evolution 453

After the success they achieved in 2018, live casino specialists from Evolution Gaming have laid out plans for the immediate future with the intention to become stronger than ever before.

Global Growth

For the past 12 months, they worked on global growth which culminated in the historic breakthrough in the US online casino market and the acquisition of Ezugi in early January. They also partnered up with Svenska Spel and ATG who launched dedicated live casino offerings to their players in the newly regulated Swedish gaming market and paved the way for growing customer base.

According to CEO Martin Carlesund the plans for continued growth and market leadership include: “Extending the gap is our top priority. Everything we do is about one thing, to extend the gap to the competition and strengthen our market leadership.”

The company plans to achieve this through their studio expansion, product development, operational excellence and recruitment, stating that after the success they achieved in 2018, they see no reason to slow down.

Reflecting on the past year and looking into the future, Carlson commented: “We shall continue to grow, continue to create new gaming experiences and continue to strengthen our global position.”

Exciting Times Ahead

Evolution Gaming, who secured a 38% rise in revenues to $245.4m for the past year, are also placing a focus on product innovation with a new studio to launch in Malta. More product launches lie ahead of 2019. The company plans to take the entire live casino industry to the next level with titles such as Monopoly Live and Deal or No Deal Live.

With the focus on providing world-class entertainment, services like YouTube and Netflix are considered to be their main competitors.

Starting with several New Jersey-based deals, alongside Ocean Resort Casino, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, 888casino and PokerStars Casino, Evolution will continue towards extending existing customer deals and entering new partnerships, in order to meet “the high demand for live casino.”
