Evolution Gaming is to take its live casino solutions to the regulated Swiss market after being selected by Groupe Partouche to deliver its range of service.

Partouche’s Evolution-powered live casino offering, pencilled in for launch during the first half of 2020, will allow the group’s customers in Switzerland to play a mix of online live games on smartphones, tablet and desktop.

Under the terms of the deal a number of live titles from the Evolution portfolio will be made available, including roulette, baccarat and numerous live dealer poker variants, as well as games such as Lightning Roulette from the firm’s game shows category.

Sebastian Johannisson, chief commercial officer at Evolution, commented on the link-up: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Groupe Partouche to partner with them and have our live casino solutions available to their players in the Swiss market. 

“The Evolution portfolio fits perfectly with the Partouche Group’s next generation of casino entertainment philosophy. We are confident that their players will love playing our live casino games online just as much as they enjoy visiting Partouche’s land-based casinos in person.”

France headquartered Groupe Partouche is lauded as “one of the leading land-based casino groups in Europe,” and boasts 42 land-based casinos across France, Switzerland and Belgium. 

The group currently operates two land-based casinos in Switzerland at Casino Du Lac Geneva and Casino Crans Montana offering a range of table, slots and electronic gaming options.

Alexander Sosnovski, igaming CEO at Casino du Lac Meyrin in Geneva, said of the reasons behind the partnership: “Groupe Partouche’s historical roots are driven by strong family traditions and values. Our concept blends an original combination of games, shows, international catering and events aimed at creating a VIP experience and providing a high level of customer service.

Evolution is therefore a strategic partner for us, not only because they are the leader in live casino games, but also because they are developing new and exciting technology for online entertainment.”
