Evolution launches dedicated online casino studio for Penn Interactive


Evolution has announced the launch of a dedicated live online casino studio in New Jersey for Penn Interactive, the igaming subsidiary of Penn National Gaming.

The new area, located inside Evolution’s existing live casino production studio in the state, will be branded ‘Barstool Sportsbook & Casino’ to link in with Penn National’s other Barstool products.

The launch builds on the existing relationship between Evolution and Penn National, under which Barstool has launched live casino services from Evolution’s studios in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Online slot games from Evolution’s NetEnt’s are live on Barstool Sportsbook & Casino in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with a West Virginia launch planned for later this year, pending all regulatory approvals.

In addition, Red Tiger slots, another Evolution brand, are scheduled to launch with Barstool in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania before the end of the year.

“The combination of Evolution’s great team and proven ability to deliver the widest range of quality online casino products quickly to market makes them an ideal partner for Penn Interactive,” head of Penn Interactive Jon Kaplowitz said.

“We are especially excited about the development of the custom Barstool-branded studio, which allows us to further utilise the broad array of media talent at Barstool Sports and provide our customers with yet another differentiated gaming experience.”

Evolution’s commercial director for North America, Jeff Millar, added: “We have worked together to create a bespoke dedicated live casino studio, completely customised to Barstool’s brand and look-and-feel.

“We very much look forward to rolling out our industry-leading mix of live games and slots to Penn players in further states.”
