Live dealer casino specialist Evolution Gaming has continued its US-based expansions, after agreeing a deal to provide its offering to The Stars Group’s Pokerstars Casino NJ online portal.
A long-standing customer of Evolution, The Stars Group has signed an agreement which will see the firm power the live casino services for players at its New Jersey focused site.
Evolution currently operates a dedicated live casino environment for PokerStars Casino at its main central European studios in Riga, Latvia, with the new deal seeing the recently opened studio in Atlantic City being used for the provision of its latest product launch.
James Stern, director of business development and land-based sales at Evolution, commented: “We have worked with The Stars Group since 2015, during which time we have worked together in a number of regulated markets in Europe.
“The immediate popularity of our live casino tables at our Atlantic City studio has exceeded even our high expectations.
“I am confident that PokerStars Casino New Jersey’s customers will be drawn to live casino, and enjoy the thrill of playing at our wide range of live roulette, blackjack and baccarat tables.”
Before this deal with The Stars Group, who also operates PokerStars and BetStars gaming brands within the state, Stern spoke to SBC Americas about how the firm is going from strength to strength within the region: “We are always monitoring the market, and have seen how the numbers have been growing month on month.
“There are various reasons for this, but it could in part be due to the increased number of operators and providers in the market, with more content being made available.
“Our entry into New Jersey delivers players with a world-class live casino playing experience like no other. Our live games portfolio never stands still, so there really is something for everyone.
“In terms of our offering, our studio went live with ten tables from day one, and operating 16 hours a day, seven days a week. Evolution also has exclusive licensed games such as three card poker and ultimate Texas hold’em, which players are familiar with from the land-based casinos, and are already performing very well and proving popular with players.
“As stated with our proven portfolio we already have plans for more tables opening in the next quarter – including new game variants. At Evolution we are constantly looking to differentiate our licensees’ live casinos in every way possible.”
