Evolution Gaming has finally gone live in the U.S. regulated online gambling market by opening a brand new live casino studio in New Jersey. The live studio will provide live dealer games to 5 New Jersey online casinos - 888casino, Resorts, Hard Rock, OceanResort, and PlaySugarHouse operated by Rush Street Interactive. This is the 10th live studio operated by the European powerhouse developer.
Evolution’s studio will offer 10 live table games, including different variations of roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and poker. However, Evolution already has expansion strategies in place, with plans for adding more games and specialized tables.
Evolution Taking on North America
Evolution’s New Jersey studio is not the first in North America, though it is the first in the U.S. In January 2018, Evolution opened a dedicated live casino studio in Vancouver, Canada; New Jersey marks its second studio opening in North America in less than a year.
Evolution CEO Martin Carlesund is thrilled with the opening of the new studio. He said,
Our entry into the US market has been a carefully considered long-term project. Back in 2013 Evolution became the first live casino provider to gain New Jersey preliminary waiver approval. Having closely monitored US market developments over the past few years, while reinforcing our position as live casino market leaders in Europe, we believe that now is the right time to launch with a full-fledged studio facility for the US.
New Jersey Reaps the Benefits of Live Gaming
Evolution’s new live studio is good news for New Jersey as well, both in terms of employment and in terms of its online gambling industry. Right off the bat, Evolution’s live studio has created 50+ employment opportunities, and the attraction of Evolution live games may further bolster the state’s already-successful online gambling industry. Since Evolution is an international leader in live gaming and New Jersey is a national leader in online gambling, it's only natural that the two have created a successful partnership.
