888 Joins Live Casino Expansion in New Jersey with Evolution Gaming Deal

By: Staff Writer, August 28, 2018

888casino launches exclusive Evolution Gaming live dealer content to New Jersey players

888 online casino site in the Garden State is launching an exciting new Live Dealer products by Evolution Gaming and therefore expanding their partnership that has existed in Europe for almost a decade.

New Games on the Market

888 casino players from New Jersey will from now on enjoy an enhanced selection of live dealer games on all devices.

Evolution Gaming’s Live Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, Automated Slingshot Roulette, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker will all bring the ultimate live casino action to 888 Casino NJ.

Evolution has a creative way for online players to hop in the middle of the excitement of a real casino through its signature Live Tables and Dual Play Roulette tables. Multiple camera angles ensure the best real casino experience possible and players can see the cards being dealt to them while placing bets in real-time.

The COO of 888Holdings, ItaiPazner, is pleased by the extended portfolio supported by Evolution.

“888 has made the expansion into regulated markets a priority of our strategy and the US is at its forefront. Live Casino is an essential part of the 888 Casino experience and we are confident that coupled with Evolution’s market-leading live product we will drive additional growth to 888casino.”

A Real Game Changer

With this 888casino deal Evolution really changes the game for New Jersey.

Although widely spread in Europe, Live Dealer games entered the New Jersey market in August 2016 when Golden Nugget casino opened its own dedicated studio in partnership with Ezugi.

Since then, Golden Nugget leased its live dealer space to Betfair and Borgota in 2017 and playMGM and Party Casino earlier this year, and therefore held the monopoly on the industry. Evolution Gaming has now entered the market and plans to sign partnerships with as many Garden State gaming sites as possible so we expect the live dealer format to explode in New Jersey.

The Atlantic City’s Hard Rock that opened in June will serve as the studio hub for Evolution’s NJ Live Dealer operations.

Hard Rock launched live casino on 16 August and was the first Live Dealer operation to be housed outside the Golden Nugget. After 888 casino, Play Sugar House and Ocean Online casino have announced their partnerships with evolution and they plan to launch their own Live Dealer operations in the upcoming months.

Well-prepared to handle the influx of business, Evolution is likely to team up with other Caesars and Resorts licensees in the future.
