Strategic partnership agreement

Evolution Gaming has announced a strategic partnership agreement with the Golden Nugget. The live casino specialist will now increase the number of games it supplies to the United States casino operator. Golden Nugget will add Evolution’s portfolio of US live casino services to its operations.

Evolution will stream the games live from its studio in Atlantic City

Games like Side Bet City and Dream Catcher will be live in New Jersey via the Golden Nugget. Evolution will stream the games live from its studio in Atlantic City or from existing facilities operated by the casino. Clients of the studio will also have the option to use Evolution’s content via their existing partnership.

No stranger to live casino games

Golden Nugget was the first casino to offer live casino games in New Jersey, starting in 2016 via a partnership with game supplier Ezugi. The supplier was acquired by Evolution in November 2018. Since that time, the Golden Nugget has continued to provide live casino content from an Ezugi-operated studio.

The new content agreement with Evolution Gaming focuses on New Jersey, as it is the only state in which the Golden Nugget offers online gaming. The agreement, however, includes an option to expand into other markets as regulation allows.

Reaction to the agreement

According to Thomas Winter, the Golden Nugget’s senior vice president and general manager of online gaming, online players of the brand and those of their partners are well-served with the existing online live casino options. The agreement with Evolution will provide the brand’s players and operating partners with more games that will enrich the live gaming experience.

Winter added that the new generation of live casino games from Evolution will

help us serve a broader player demographics, including sports bettors.”

Sebastian Johannisson, chief commercial officer at Evolution Gaming, stated that the supplier is honored to be working with the Golden Nugget. The partnership allows the brand to drive live casino growth in the United States.

The deal helps to consolidate the company’s position in New Jersey and gives it a way to introduce new games to the US. This includes titles that are already popular in Europe, including Dream Catcher and Side Bet City.

Evolution Gaming products in high demand

Since the coronavirus outbreak, Evolution Gaming has seen a high demand for its products. As we previously reported, Evolution Gaming noted that players have been making the transition from sports betting to live casino games during the pandemic. Major sporting events have been canceled or postponed, so those who normally wager in this sector are moving to online casino sites.

During the outbreak, Evolution Gaming is doing its best to ensure its live dealer facilities remain open. The company implemented precautionary measures in each studio such as social distancing, staff separation, and disinfecting. Staff members are given temperature checks at studio entrances and cleaning frequency has increased.
