Rush Street Interactive has become the first igaming entity to premier Evolution’s live casino content suite in Pennsylvania as the firm aims to cement its status in the region’s online ecosystem.

Evolution’s live dealer product will make its Pennsylvania debut on RSI’s online casino sites, BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com, which will boast a mix of live tables including low and high stakes Blackjack games, with side bets such as 21 +3 and bet behind, Roulette and Slingshot Roulette.

“Many online players prefer live dealer options because they watch the action as it happens, which gives them a higher level of trust in the outcome,” stated Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive.

“A live dealer game is the closest you can get online to playing in a land-based casino and we’re thrilled to be the first to offer players in Pennsylvania the opportunity to virtually sit and play on Evolution’s world renowned live tables.”

Live dealer games aim to combine the convenience and ease of online gambling on a player’s desktop, tablet and smartphone, with the social aspect of being at real tables with real dealers in real time.

“The Evolution-hosted live dealer casino has proven very popular with players at PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey,” Schwartz added.  

“We are confident players in Pennsylvania will love these live action table games too.  Extending our partnership with Evolution into PA supports our mission to continually offer our loyal online players the best mix of innovative and entertaining games available.”

Evolution had earlier lauded its continued efforts in the US as the firm published its latest quarterly update, asserting that its strategy in the county represents a “long-term project with very high potential”.

“RSI is well established as the #1 online gaming operator in Pennsylvania and we are thrilled to partner with the acclaimed online gaming leader and are confident that the Evolution-hosted live dealer casino will be a big hit in this market,” said Johan Nordstrom, CEO and CCO at Evolution

“On top of an exceptional range of world-class live game show style games, classic casino games and exclusive content, we have extensive experience with multiple state-of-the-art live casino studios worldwide. 

“At the player interface level, our Blackjack is the fastest, slickest online live blackjack available anywhere, so players get more game rounds and exciting play in every gaming session.”
