Swedish software provider and live casino specialist, Evolution Gaming, has announced it has reached an agreement for the renewal, and enhancement, of the existing US deal with the US gambling company, FanDuel Group. The deal will see Evolution Gaming become the sole source for live casino table game content for FanDuel in the entire online US gaming market.
This enhanced deal is an expansion on the 2020 deal for Evolution Gaming, which at the time, saw FanDuel add Evolution live dealer table game content to its online casino portfolio. FanDuel already held Ezugi content in its New Jersey operation, which is part of the Evolution brand.
The new deal states that of the US states which FanDuel is operating in, Evolution live dealer table games can be added. Evolution Gaming is already working on creating live casino content that is FanDuel branded, which could go live via the studios in Pennsylvania and Michigan. A completion date for this has not yet been confirmed, but Evolution widely expects that it will be in the first half of the year.
Evolution’s slots games and RNG content will also be available to the FanDuel brand and will sit side by side with staple online slots and RNG brands such as Red Tiger and NetEnt. For example, Evolution’s unique, First-Person titles, that have the built-in feature to ‘Go Live’.
FanDuel Noticing Evolution is Key to Filling the Marketspace
FanDuel Group General Manager of Casino, Jesse Chemtob, said that FanDuel had always been confident of live casino content as it identified a growing market. Since 2020, when Evolution got onboard, FanDuel has been delighted with the content that Evolution continues to develop. FanDuel is now excited to see what the future has in store after announcing the expansion, with the thought of being able to provide customers with a better experience with the addition of Evolution’s live dealer table games.
Commercial Director for North America at Evolution, Jeff Millar, said that the company is confident that the faith FanDuel has shown will be rewarded. FanDuel can see the potential of live casinos in the US online casino market, and Evolution is proud that its content is considered as the answer to FanDuel’s hunger for live casino success.
Other Deals Evolution has Struck: If there is one other thing than live casino content that Evolution Gaming knows, it’s how to make deals. Soft2Bet is an online sportsbook and casino platform provider, and late last year, it signed an exclusive environment agreement with Evolution. The deal would see Soft2Bet add 3 blackjack tables into its portfolio. The content was packaged as ‘Club Royale’ and distributed to all its brands.
