Evolution Gaming Acquires Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board License Allowing for Further US Expansion
Evolution Gaming was the first Live Casino provider to be granted New Jersey Preliminary Waiver status and now it is the first Live Casino provider to be licensed in Pennsylvania and there are plans for the construction of a new studio from the brand in Pennsylvania.
This came to by when the supplier, one of the leading providers of Live Casino solutions, was granted its conditional Interactive Gaming Manufacturer license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). What this means is that it will now be able to deliver Live Casino services on behalf of gaming operators from its live studio in PA.
James Stern, Chief Business Development Officer — America & Land-based at Evolution, said that demand for their Live Casino services in the United States has been phenomenal. He also said that they are delighted to be further expanding their U.S. operation by opening a standalone studio in PA to serve both online operators and land-based casinos in the state.
“We are looking forward to opening up our world-leading Live Casino portfolio to operators and players in the state of Pennsylvania. We continue to stay at the forefront — maximizing the opportunities in this exciting new market and growing together with our licensees,” added Stern.
Evolution Gaming is also doubling the size of its Atlantic City studio, to support continued growth in New Jersey. Expanding in NJ will allow additional U.S. licensees to create dedicated tables and environments as well as expanding the games portfolio by adding award-winning ‘crowd pleasers’ to the existing portfolio of games.
The provider has been very active in 2019. In February, it won the Online Supplier of the Year Award at the Global Gaming Awards. Also, in February, it reported a 38% revenue growth for 2018, based on the year-end report.
