Latvia-headquartered provider of video-streamed live dealer gaming solutions, Evolution Gaming (STO: EVO), announced Thursday that its partnership with 888casino has been extended and that the online gaming company has selected its Live Casino innovation for its move into New Jersey’s online gaming market.
888 is one of the most popular solutions providers and online gaming companies in the world and is fully licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) to offer real money online casino games. According to the press release, under the terms of the extended agreement, this summer, 888casino will be providing New Jersey customers with a comprehensive Live Casino service hosted by Evolution.
888casino will offer the online live tables in the Garden State and will include automated Slingshot Roulette, American (Double Zero) Roulette, Three Card Poker, Blackjack with side bets and Bet Behind, Baccarat and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker. Customers will be able to play the new Live Casino games on desktop and on mobile via Android and iOS free 888casino apps.
Chief Operating Officer for 888, Itai Pazner, said that 888 is committed to increasing its presence in regulated markets and over the last five years has expanded in the U.S. Pazner explained that the company sees the addition of Evolution’s Live Casino to 888casino “as an excellent growth opportunity” that will allow the company “to offer even more entertaining products to customers across their favourite 888 sites. We are confident that Evolution’s Live Casino will continue to drive additional growth for 888 in New Jersey.”
Also commenting on the move, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales for Evolution, James Stern, added that the two companies have a “long-standing and successful relationship,” and that the close working relationship has “already resulted in 888 being first to market in a number of other jurisdictions. Both of our companies approach each new market in a very systematic way to mitigate risk and maximise the opportunity for success. New Jersey is no different. Certainly, from Evolution’s perspective, the time is now right and we are delighted to be working with 888’s New Jersey team.”
