Evolution-owned games and software supplier Red Tiger has gone live for the first time in Pennsylvania, through a deal with North American partners BetMGM and MGM’s Borgata Casino.
A selection of Red Tiger’s portfolio of games are now available through BetMGM in Pennsylvania with more to be added in the coming weeks, as a partnership signed last year between Evolution and leading operator BetMGM hits Pennsylvania.
The launch follows Bet MGM’s successful platform integration of Evolution Group’s Evolution-powered live casino games and NetEnt slot titles throughout its states of operation in the US.
“We’re excited to see Red Tiger go live with BetMGM and look forward to extending our partnership with them. The studio is producing very successful games and I’m sure they will be well-received by players,” said Jeff Millar, Evolution’s commercial director for North America.
Matthew Sunderland, vice president of gaming at BetMGM, said: “Red Tiger delivers top quality games to licensed markets around the world. BetMGM is delighted to add their popular titles to our world-class games portfolio.”
Evolution partnered with Bet MGM last August with an agreement that would see Evolution power Live Casino services for BetMGM’s brands across the US. Evolution is partnered with a series of other major groups including William Hill, FanDuel and Wynn.
The launch with Bet MGM in Pennsylvania comes six months after Red Tiger debuted in the US with Rush Street Interactive and its BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com brands in the same state.
Red Tiger was acquired by NetEnt for £220m in 2019 and immediately became an important contributor to the group’s finances. NetEnt was then purchased by Evolution in a deal worth SEK19.60bn (£1.72bn/€1.91bn/$2.30bn) late last year.
