Evolution has announced a new strategic agreement with Caesars Digital to establish dedicated live casino studios across the U.S.

The provider of live dealer games will work with Caesars to build studios in multiple U.S. states, including one inside Caesars’ New Jersey-based Tropicana Casino.

According to Evolution, this new agreement will strengthen the existing relationship it has with Caesars and expand the reach of the company across North America.

“Caesars’ expansion in the market is remarkable and noteworthy. When presented with the opportunity to launch our third live studio in Atlantic City, we knew Tropicana would be the ideal location. We’re impressed by Caesars’ dedication and look forward to collaborating with them as they continue to expand their branded studio presence,” said Evolution CEO for North America Jacob Claesson.

The pair will also collaborate to launch branded studio space within Evolution’s pre-existing Michigan and Pennsylvania studios.

Meanwhile, online casino players on Tropicana Online Casino, Caesars Sportsbook & Casino, and Caesars Palace Online Casino will continue to have access to Evolution’s live casino games and online slots from its NetEnt, Red Tiger, Big Time Gaming and Nolimit City brands. 

“Elevated live dealer experiences are an area of opportunity and something online casino players are continuing to show an affinity for. With this in mind, partnering on a deeper level with Evolution, the market leader in live casino offerings, made a lot of sense,” Caesars Digital Senior Vice President and Chief iGaming Officer Matthew Sunderland. “We trust that our players will be excited by these best-in-class live casino experiences and can’t wait to see how our new dedicated live dealer studio spaces come together at Tropicana Atlantic City and in other jurisdictions where iGaming is live.”

Big week for Evolution

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) cleared Evolution of wrongdoing and closed its investigation. The company was accused of offering its services in illegal gaming markets, including Iran, Syria and Hong Kong, however, the DGE found no evidence of this during their probe.
