Evolution Gaming is an award-winning live casino online software developer. On top of acquiring top names like Ezugi, NetEnt, and Big Time Gaming, the company continues to expand its online casino market share. This time, Evolution is partnering with Cordish Gaming Group in Pennsylvania. So, what’s cooking?
On March 29, 2021, Evolution announced its partnership with Cordish Gaming Group in Pennsylvania to offer its excellent first-person RNG and live dealer games. Following the deal, the offerings will be available via Cordish Gaming Group’s PlayLive! website. Game streaming will be from Evolution’s live studio in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, the Cordish Gaming Group envisages launching the PlayLive! website in the year’s Q2. After the launch, online live casino fans in the Keystone State will access all popular offering in Evolution’s Live Casino catalog. Some of the games include Craps Live, the good old Lightning Roulette, Dream Catcher, Crazy Time, and many more.
Jeff Millar, Commercial Director for North America at Evolution Group, was quick to comment on the deal. He said that the company was super-excited and proud to work with a brand like Cordish Gaming Group, PlayLive! in particular. He further added that Evolution’s extensive online casino game portfolio would be a great fit for developing Cordish Gaming Group’s Live! experience. On the other hand, Joe Billhimer, the Executive Vice President at Cordish Gaming Group, said that their Hotels and Live! Casinos are aiming to set new standards in the in-class player experience. He added that the company is currently focusing on developing the Play Live! online casino, which they hope will be an immense success. Billhimer concluded that they are confident. Evolution’s exceptional quality and experience will help them reach their goals. No doubt about that! It’s also important to note that Cordish Gaming Group partnered with Game Account Network (GAN) last year to debut in Pennsylvania’s iGaming space.
In August 2020, Evolution announced that it would be offering its Live Casino game catalog to Pennsylvania punters through BetMGM. As of now, punters in this state enjoy Evolution’s live dealer variations like roulette, blackjack, and baccarat through the bookmaker. BetMGM Casino offers players over 140 easy-to-play online casino games. The app is currently available to download on Android and iOS, with the instant access version also available. More recently, in November 2020, the company announced another partnership in Pennsylvania with Unibet, a brand of Kindred Group. Following this deal, Unibet Casino players in Keystone State can play live games like blackjack, baccarat, craps, etc. Remember that Evolution Gaming and Unibet’s partnership started back in December 2018 when the online casino debuted in the US market. After this deal, Evolution delivered its Live Casino services to New Jersey players. The latest agreement between the two is proof enough that Evolution’s products are a great hit in the demanding US market. Long live the partnership! Still in November 2020, Evolution signed a deal with Caesars Casino & Sportsbook that will see its Pennsylvania players access Evolution’s live dealer games. The agreement also included a clause that Caesars’ New Jersey players will get a piece of Evolution action in the next month. With these three Pennsylvania deals wrapped up, Evolution can now focus on expanding in other US markets.
As you can see, Evolution is not a newcomer in the competitive US online gambling market. The latest moves are sure to cement its position as the market leader in offering live dealer games in North America. At this rate, live dealer casino players should expect more blockbuster deals from Evolution this year.
