Evolution Live Dealer One Step Closer To Launching In PA

Live dealer games are coming soon to Pennsylvania’s online casino offerings.

The appeal of live dealer games is having a casino experience while playing online anywhere in PA.

Evolution Gaming now holds a conditional license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) as an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer.

Live dealer studio coming to PA

That means Evolution can soon deliver live casino services to PA gaming operators from a planned live studio in PA. Evolution did not announce when this will happen or the location of the yet-to-be-built studio, however.

Evolution Gaming planted its flag first in New Jersey when it started offering games in the US.

James Stern, Evolution’s chief business development officer, explained the expansion to the Keystone State:

“Demand for our Live Casino services in the US has been phenomenal. We are delighted to be further expanding our US operations by opening a standalone studio in Pennsylvania to serve both online operators and land-based casinos in the state. We are looking forward to opening up our world-leading live casino portfolio to operators and players in the state of Pennsylvania.

We continue to stay at the forefront — maximising the opportunities in this exciting new market and growing together with our licensees.”

PA live dealer games should follow those in NJ

The company’s New Jersey studio spreads American roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and Slingshot Roulette as well as exclusive games Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘em Poker.

Expect something similar from Pennsylvania, though the games might slowly run out one at a time versus all at once.

Evolution’s games are compatible with both desktop and digital devices, the company has said.

The eGaming Review has named the company the top interactive gaming supplier for nine straight years.

Evolution doubling size of NJ dealer studio

As Evolution announced its plans for PA, the company also said it is also doubling the size of its Atlantic City studio.

Evolution has New Jersey live-dealer partnerships with:

  • 888 Casino
  • Golden Nugget Atlantic City
  • Betfair, Resorts Casino Hotel
  • Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City
  • PlaySugarHouse.com operated by Rush Street Interactive
  • Ocean Resort Casino Atlantic City
  • Borgata

Alliances with PA companies already aligned with Evolution in NJ, like Rush Street Interactive, are likely.

PlaySugarHouse PA is one of three online casinos up and running in Pennsylvania. Adding something like live dealer would be a clear market differentiator from the competition.

Evolution will also will do live sporting event promotions in PA in addition to cross-promoting land-based casino attractions with online casino sites, the company said.
