As the American online casino market continues to open and expand, mainstream casino software providers from across the world are taking it in turns to pitch and lure partnerships with the emerging sites.
This month, Evolution Gaming – the industry leader in live dealer casino games – is the latest software provider to be linked with the stateside market. The world’s top developer of live casino titles has recently announced that it has put together deals which will take it into regulated New Jersey, Michigan and now Pennsylvania-based online brands.
New Jersey & Michigan Are Already Onboard
Earlier this month, Evolution Gaming became the highest-profile software developer to offer live dealer casino games to the States. While several New Jersey sites already feature live games from NetEnt, the arsenal of their titles open to players is limited to just a handful. By contrast, Evolution Gaming has a fully-fledged portfolio of over a hundred live games. Recently struck partnerships with licensed and regulated casinos in both New Jersey and Michigan were just the start, though, with Evolution Gaming promising more.
Evolution Gaming Comes to Pennsylvania
This week, Evolution Gaming has revealed a little bit more about their plans for the US online casino market. Several Pennsylvania licensed outlets are now in line to receive their live casino suite. Live tables, including blackjack which permit betting behind, as well as Immersive Roulette, and their famous “game show” range of titles like Dream Catcher are believed to be in the pipeline.
There is also the possibility that Evolution will use the land-based casinos of Atlantic City, as well as those in Pennsylvania to stream live casino games to players located elsewhere in the world. The live dealer games are already streamed from Malta, Georgia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Latvia and even Macao. Adding New Jersey to the list would be an impressive achievement.
Further Deals to Come
In many of the world’s leading internet casinos, both NetEnt and Evolution Gaming’s live dealer games are often provided side-by-side. It is not believed that the two developers are in direct competition with each other. However, Evolution does have plans to branch out further and potentially reach sites where NetEnt is not represented. Wynn Sports Interactive recently announced that they would be supporting the software developer in the future, while MGM is also interested in offering the live dealer range.
