Evolution Gaming has signed a US-wide agreement with New Jersey-based BetMGM, a sportsbook and iGaming platform established by the joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings. According to the deal, the world’s largest provider of live casino solutions will provide the full suite of its live games to all brands run by Bet MGM across the US.
Evolution Boosted US-Wide Presence Via BetMGM Deal
The US-Wide Coverage
The most recent partnership will significantly expand the existing range of live dealer tables delivered for BetMGM in New Jersey by Ezugi, acquired by Evolution at the beginning of 2019. Founded in July 2018, BetMGM has leveraged a range of new opportunities created by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the U.S. federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA).
According to the plan…
…numerous variants of Evo’s blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and other popular titles, as well as its immersive show-style games, will be available to BetMGM’s players and customers of sister brands Borgata Online and Party Casino. All games will be streamed from Evolution’s ground-breaking production hub in New Jersey.
Johan Nordstrom, Chief Executive Officer at Evolution Gaming Malta, stated:
“We are honoured to have been chosen by BetMGM to be partners in the fast-developing US live gaming market. This is a natural extension of our existing relationship with GVC Holdings’ brands.”
The latest partnership aims to secure for both companies a top position not only in NJ but also in Pennsylvania and Michigan, with the upcoming launches of Evolution’s studios in these two states being part of the plot.
Undisputed Live Casino Leader
One of the biggest sports betting and gaming groups out there, GVC operates both online and in the retail sector. Its extensive portfolio of well-known brands includes such global favorites as bwin, Coral, Ladbrokes, PartyCasino, CasinoClub, Foxy Bingo, Gala, and partypoker.
The purchasing of Ladbrokes Coral in March 2018 let the Group top the list of the UK’s largest high-street bookmakers. Launched in close cooperation with MGM Resorts International, BetMGM is becoming a more and more important segment of GVC’s gaming vertical.
Matthew Sunderland, Vice President of Gaming for BetMGM, explained:
“BetMGM was formed with a very clear objective: to lead sports betting and online gaming in the United States. As the undisputed leader and innovator in Live Casino services for digital gaming, Evolution, is the perfect fit for us.
Evolution offers everything we need to enable our brands to roll out an extremely rich, world-class online live gaming experience across the US and their new state launches roadmap is very much in accord with our own alongside building on our current leadership position in Gaming in New Jersey.”
