Unibet chooses Evolution for US bow
Being a Kindred Group’s flagship brand, Unibet offers not only Live Casino but all types of sports betting, games, poker and bingo in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Now, they decided to enter the US market and chose its existing partner Evolution Gaming to supply them with their Live Casino products.
Evolution and Unibet Team Up
Unibet has witnessed Evolution’s tremendous success ever since they launched their Atlantic City studio in August.
Since the two companies have worked closely in the past, it was a logical step for Unibet to partner Evolution for their US launch. Unibet will use Evolution’s new US studio to deliver Live Casino services to players in New Jersey.
James Stern, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales at Evolution, commented: “As a long-standing Evolution partner, Unibet has witnessed and been a part of our phenomenal growth in other jurisdictions, including a number of newly regulated markets across Europe. We are delighted that they have chosen us for their own US launch.”
Unibet has a strong collaboration with Evolution. It operates in Europe using Evolution’s generic Live Casino tables, a dedicated environment at Evolution’s Riga studios and a selection of native speaking tables at Evolution’s Malta studios.
Cristiano Blanco, Head of Gaming, Kindred Group, said: “The Unibet brand has a strong footprint in Europe where it has enjoyed exciting growth in Live Casino, thanks in large part to our relationship with Evolution. Now that Evolution has launched its US studio, we look forward very much to establishing and growing the Unibet brand in New Jersey and, in due course, in other US states too.”
Evolution Expanding US Footprint
Evolution opened its first US studio back in August following the Canadian studio that opened in Vancouver in January 2019.
The studio in Atlantic City was the tenth Evolution studio worldwide and it offers 10 online live tables and a wide range of Evolution game variants: American (Double Zero) Roulette, Blackjack with side bets and Bet Behind, Baccarat, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker, plus Slingshot Roulette.
The studio had instant success and Evolution is already planning to go bigger.
Stern added: “We have already started to plan the expansion of the studio following the early success we have witnessed since launch. With additional partners still to go live and the wide range of games Evolution has to offer, the coming 12 months will undoubtedly highlight the company’s ability to provide the best player experience.”
