Evolution to power live casino for BetMGM in US

BetMGM, the betting brand operated via the GVC Holdings and MGM Resorts joint venture, has selected Evolution Gaming to power its live casino games in the US.

The agreement will initially see the operator launch a range of live table and game show-style games through its primary BetMGM brand, as well as sister sites Borgata Online and Party Casino.

Evolution will broadcast the games from its live casino studio in New Jersey, with the deal to cover all states where BetMGM’s online casino is active.

The provider will also soon open new studios in Pennsylvania and Michigan, two states in which BetMGM is planning to launch its online casino services.

“Evolution offers everything we need to enable our brands to roll out an extremely rich, world-class online live gaming experience across the US and their new state launches roadmap is very much in accord with our own alongside building on our current leadership position in gaming in New Jersey,” BetMGM vice president of gaming Matthew Sunderland said.

Evolution Gaming Malta’s chief executive, Johan Nordstrom, added: “We are honoured to have been chosen by BetMGM to be partners in the fast-developing US live gaming market. This is a natural extension of our existing relationship with GVC Holdings’ brands.”

The agreement extends and existing live game agreement between BetMGM and Ezugi, which became part of Evolution in January 2019. Ezugi has been providing live games to the operator in New Jersey.

BetMGM this week announced the launch of its online casino platform in West Virginia, where it will partner with the Greenbrier to offer a range of games to players in the state.
