BetMGM has chosen Evolution Gaming as its new partner to provide US live casino gaming. Operated by GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts, BetMGM will now have access to new live dealer content for its primary brand as well as sister sites, including Party Casino and Borgata Online.
Evolution Gaming announced the deal via Twitter:
The agreement will begin with Evolution providing live table games and game-show-style titles. The deal also extends BetMGM’s Ezugi-powered live games already offered in New Jersey. Evolution Gaming acquired the Ezugi brand in early 2019.

Evolution will broadcast the live casino games from its New Jersey studio. With the new deal, Evolution will power live games where BetMGM is licensed to offer online casino services. BetMGM has plans to launch in Michigan and Pennsylvania soon, so Evolution will open new studios in those states to host and stream games.

BetMGM vice president of gaming Matthew Sunderland commented on the deal, saying that Evolution offers everything needed to enable the BetMGM brands to roll out “an extremely rich, world-class online live gaming experience across the US.”
Sunderland stated further that Evolution’s new state launch roadmap is in line with BetMGM’s plans to expand as well as build on its leadership position within the Garden State.
Continued growth for both companies
The announcement comes at a time when BetMGM just launched an online casino in West Virginia. The new offering has table games and slots, with around 30 titles on offer. Players can access the site via the casino tab of the BetMGM Sportsbook app. The casino section does not offer live dealer games at this time, but the new partnership might indicate that the games will be added in the future.
On its end, Evolution, has stayed busy building new partnership deals in the US. The company announced a partnership with PointsBet earlier this month. The two will work together to offer US live casino gaming in such states as Michigan where PointsBet operates an online casino site.
