Evolution partners up with Grand Casino Baden
Evolution Gaming, leading live dealer software supplier has entered into a partnership with Grand Casino Baden, Swiss land-based casino – one of the first to secure a new online gaming license in the country.
“Evolution has an excellent record in helping its licensees to lauch world-class Live Casino services into regulated markets globally,” Marcel Tobler, chief financial officer at Grand Casino Baden said.
“Harnessing Evolution’s Live Casino will undoubtedly help us to consolidate and develop our position as one of Europe’s most highly regarded casinos.”
Full Suite of Live Games
The deal will see Evolution supplying its full live dealer portfolio to Jackpots.ch, the iGaming website operated by Grand Casino Baden and powered by platform provider Gamanza.
Games which will be rolled out on the site include live dealer roulette, blackjack and baccarat, a range of live poker variants and game show-style titles such as Lightning Dice.
James Stern, chief business development officer for America and land-based at Evolution, commented: “We are very confident that our live games portfolio, including not only casino classics but also game show-style games, will prove to be very popular indeed with the casino’s clientele and will also help to attract further new visitors to the land-based venue.”
New Law to Permit Online Gaming
The site is expected to launch next month as soon as the new laws that permit online gaming in Switzerland come into effect on July 1.
As of this date, Switzerland will also begin banning unlicensed sites. Swiss gambling regulator Inter-Cantonal Lotteries and Betting Commission (Comlot) has already in plan to introduce a blacklist of operators after the new laws come into effect.
This will all be part of the regulators efforts to clamp down on unlicensed activities.
