Evolution Gaming is widely regarded as the industry leader as far as online Live Dealer casino games go. So it came as no surprise when the company announced plans to significantly expand their operations, with key locations around the world mentioned.
One of the locations was New Jersey, where Live Dealer operations are still young. The broadcasting studio has only been functional for a comparatively short amount of time, and has plenty room to expand. Though, the expansion process was not as easy as some might have assumed. It turned out that permission first needed to be sought from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE.) As of now, this permission is still pending.
But even with permission outstanding, the company has made public the blueprints of its expansion plans. The New Jersey studio is to be nearly doubled in size, growing from 2,223 square feet to 5,386 square feet. The new space will be populated by an additional 24 Blackjack tables, an extra Money Wheel station, and a Side Bet City table.
New Jersey is not the only location in which Evolution Gaming plans to drive growth. In September it was announced that the company is now also licensed to operate in Pennsylvania. This was made official as the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board gave the nod, unlocking the way for massive new potential in the area.
The announcement is, of course, a big one. Pennsylvania only officially legalised gambling in late 2017, meaning that the market is still fresh, and still largely unsaturated. Evolution Gaming will also be the first company of its kind to be granted an operating license, making it the pioneering Live Dealer operation to enter the marketplace. It need not be said that the potential for strong business growth strategies is enormous.
Alongside the developments in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Evolution Gaming also landed one other significant partnership. This one was with online operator Flutter Entertainment, and involved a supply contract between the two companies.
The specifics of the contract state that the Live Dealer specialist will be providing all their content directly to Flutter Entertainment online outlets. Their major casino games are to be included, such as the biggest smash hits in the iGaming world, Lightning Roulette and Deal or No Deal.
In conclusion, Evolution Gaming is taking the world by storm. As the reach of the company rapidly spreads, and as Live Dealer games quickly grow in popularity, it seems that the future of the online casino world is one that will be dominated by live streaming services.
