FanDuel Select Evolution as Live Casino Content Supplier
Posted on November 6, 2020 | 9:53 am
FanDuel, one of the most popular online casino and sportsbook operators in the United States, decided to boost its live casino offering with content from Evolution, one of the top providers in the industry.
The deal between these two entities will allow FanDuel to offer live casino games for the very first time in the state of Pennsylvania. Evolution’s games will also be added to FanDuel’s offering in New Jersey.
FanDuel’s operations in “The Garden State” already included live casino content from Ezugi, a supplier which was acquired by Evolution at the beginning of 2019. The games will be streamed from Evolution’s studio which is located in Pennsylvania.
A Key Driver for Continued Market Growth
Speaking about the new partnership, Jesse Chemtob, General Manager of Casino at FanDuel Group, said: “We’re really excited to offer our loyal customers more Live Casino games.
We see Live Casino as a key driver for continued online casino market growth in the US and FanDuel will now have 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 landmark deal with Flutter Entertainment brands Paddy Power and Betfair. Now we are delighted to be working with another Flutter brand, FanDuel, in the fast-growing US market.”
FanDuel Group is a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment, a leading international sports betting and gaming operator which includes several popular brands like Betfair and Paddy Power. FanDuel is present in 45 states across the U.S. and has over 8.5 million customers.
Relentless Expansion in North America
This deal is not the first step into the American market for Evolution, and it most likely won’t be the last either. Last month the Swedish company reached agreements with Wynn Interactive and William Hill for the United States market, while a month earlier they teamed up with BetMGM.
Evolution is currently in the process of acquiring NetEnt, another industry giant when it comes to delivering top-class video slots and live casino content. The two companies have reported increased revenues ahead of the proposed merger.
