US – Unibet selects Evolution Live Casino for first move into US marketBy Phil - 12 December 2018
Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has signed a new agreement with existing client Unibet, this time for the US market.
Unibet already works closely with Evolution in Europe, where it operates using Evolution’s generic Live Casino tables, a dedicated environment at Evolution’s Riga studios and a selection of native speaking tables at Evolution’s Malta studios.
As part of its first foray into the US market, Unibet will use Evolution’s new US studio, which opened in Atlantic City in mid-August, to deliver Live Casino services to players in New Jersey.
Cristiano Blanco, Head of Gaming, Kindred Group, said: “The Unibet brand has a strong footprint in Europe where it has enjoyed exciting growth in Live Casino, thanks in large part to our relationship with Evolution. Now that Evolution has launched its US studio, we look forward very much to establishing and growing the Unibet brand in New Jersey and, in due course, in other US states too.”
James Stern, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales at Evolution, commented: “As a long-standing Evolution partner, Unibet has witnessed and been a part of our phenomenal growth in other jurisdictions, including a number of newly regulated markets across Europe. We are delighted that they have chosen us for their own US launch.”
Stern added: “We have already started to plan the expansion of the studio following the early success we have witnessed since launch. With additional partners still to go live and the wide range of games Evolution has to offer, the coming 12 months will undoubtedly highlight the company’s ability to provide the best player experience.”
Unibet is Kindred Group’s flagship brand, offering not only Live Casino but also all types of sports betting, games, poker and bingo across more than 100 countries.
