Golden Nugget

Live casino solutions provider Evolution Gaming has inked a strategic partnership agreement in the US with Golden Nugget that initially sets its sights on New Jersey.

Following on from a ReelPlay boost announced yesterday, Golden Nugget, which boasts casino resort operations in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Biloxi and Lake Charles, will explore opportunities alongside Evolution in further jurisdictions as legislation permits.

Under the terms of the agreement Golden Nugget’s online players will have access to a multitude of new game types such as Dream Catcher, Side Bet City and Top Card, as well as other titles from the firm’s portfolio. 

The games will be streamed live to players in New Jersey from Evolution’s own live casino studio in Atlantic City, or from the Golden Nugget’s in house entity located at the namesake property. 

They will appear as part of the extended Golden Nugget live games offering alongside Golden Nugget’s own Ezugi-powered live roulette, blackjack, unlimited blackjack, baccarat, casino hold’em and three card poker titles.

Thomas Winter, Golden Nugget’s senior vice president and general manager of online gaming, explained: “Our online players and those of our partners are very well served with our existing online live casino offering in terms of classic casino table games. 

“The agreement with Evolution will give our players and those of our operating partners access to more unique show-style games and other unique titles, enriching their live gaming experience. 

“The new generation of Evolution live casino games will also help us serve a broader player demographics, including sports bettors. This we believe, will allow us collectively to further increase the share of online casino revenue attributed to live games.”

Furthermore, the link-up also extends to the live casino offerings of operators currently served by the Golden Nugget studio in Atlantic City who will have the option to access selected Evolution titles. 

Those Golden Nugget partners for New Jersey currently include Betfair/FanDuel, Borgata, BetMGM, PartyCasino, BetAmerica and Caesars.

Sebastian Johannisson, chief commercial officer at Evolution, commented: “We are honoured to be working in partnership with Golden Nugget in what we believe is a key agreement that paves the way for further exciting growth in the US live casino market.

“This deal further consolidates our position in New Jersey while providing an additional strategic platform from which to introduce additional new games to the US, including titles that have already been very successful in the live casino space in Europe.”
