Evolution to take gaming suite to Cordish Gaming in Pennsylvania


Evolution has deepened its US footprint via a collaboration with Cordish Gaming Group, as The Cordish Companies division aims to deliver a complementary digital offering to its range of land-based gaming venues.

The agreement, which follows a pair of partnerships inked north of the border alongside Canadian Bank Note Company and Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis earlier in the month, will see Evolution deliver its live casino and first person RNG-based games to players in Pennsylvania via PlayLive!.

Jeff Millar, commercial director at North America at Evolution, commented: “We are excited and proud to be working with Cordish Gaming Group and PlayLive! Casino.

“The extensive Evolution online casino and entertainment portfolio is a great fit for further developing their Live! experience online.”

The deal, with a planned go live date scheduled for the second quarter of the year, will see Evolution provide its portfolio of online casino games, game show-style gaming and first person offering to PlayLive! customers in the state of Pennsylvania from its live studio in Philadelphia. 

Joe Billhimer, executive vice president at Cordish Gaming Group, added: “Our Live! casinos and hotels set a new standard in best-in-class customer experiences with highly acclaimed gaming, hotel, dining and entertainment destinations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. 

“One of our main objectives in the development of the PlayLive! online casino was to deliver a complementary online offering that is just as entertaining and attractive to our customers. We have selected Evolution as our strategic online partner because we are confident that the exceptional quality and breadth of the Evolution offering will enable us to achieve this goal.”

The Cordish Gaming Group teamed-up with Game Account Network to debut its Pennsylvania-based igaming offering last year, almost three months after being lauded as a “major new client” by the latter.

GAN has successfully deployed the operation in just 72 days following the execution of a definitive agreement, with the entity also leveraging the ‘Live! Rewards’ customer rewards program.
