Evolution Gaming pushes US expansion with Betway deal
Leading B2B software supplier Evolution Gaming has scored another iGaming partnership that will see it boost its presence in the United States online gambling market.
On Wednesday, the Stockholm-based company announced that it had inked a deal with online casino operator Betway for the provision of live dealer games in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Thanks to this deal, Betway customers in the two states will be able to enjoy Evolution’s state-of-the-art portfolio of live casino titles as well as a wide variety of the developer’s virtual table games. The offering will include popular casino classics like blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and various variations of poker games.
Players in NJ and PA will be able to enjoy this offering across all types of devices including PC, smartphones, and tablets.
Betway and Evolution delighted to extend partnership
Evolution Gaming’s latest agreement with the Super Group-owned Betway builds upon a long-standing partnership between the two companies.
Evolution and Betway have worked together in several regulated markets before, including the United Kingdom. In the US, the operator has an existing partnership with Evolution’s subsidiary, NetEnt, which allows it to offer the developers market-leading slot titles in the Garden State and Pennsylvania.
Commenting on the latest agreement, Evolution’s Commercial Director for North America, Jeff Millar, said that his company is delighted to extend its partnership with Betway, and that the firm was looking forward to aiding the operator achieve major success in PA and NJ.
“Our US rollout continues at pace and, once again, we are delighted to be working with a brand with which we have already built an extremely strong and close relationship in other markets. We very much look forward to helping Betway achieve major success in these first two states, and in other states in the future,” stated Millar.
Betway CEO Antony Werkman also issued a statement about the partnership deal, saying that he was confident that the brand’s customers would be delighted to play Evolution’s live casino games on its platforms in NJ and the Keystone State.
“Through our new US sports sponsorship deals the Betway brand will be seen courtside and rinkside in some of the biggest arenas in North America,” said Werkman.
“Betway customers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy playing our world-class, Evolution-powered online casino games in their homes and while on the move. Having worked with Evolution for many years, we are confident that players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be very excited indeed by our US-focused online games offered in a fair, safe, secure, and responsible environment.”
Evolution continue to expand US footprint
The recent agreement marks a major stride for Evolution Gaming in the US online casino market.
The supplier made its debut in the country’s regulated market in 2016 via a partnership with Rush Street Interactive-operated PlaySugarHouse.com in NJ.
Since then, Evolution has scored partnerships with several other US casino sites across the country, allowing them to distribute its online casino games to players in the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan.
Some of the brands that have teamed up with Evolution in the US include BetRivers, BetMGM, PokerStars, William Hill, DraftKings, FanDuel, WynnBet, Golden Nugget Casino Online, Barstool, TwinSpires, and most recently, Betway.
