Evolution launches its second live casino studio in New Jersey
Online gaming services and content provider Evolution announced Thursday the launch of its second New Jersey live casino studio, the company's fifth serving the US iGaming market. The firm was "the first one" to launch live casino to players in New Jersey, Michigan, West Virginia and Connecticut, according to a statement.
Evolution opened its first US casino studio in New Jersey back in August 2018. The new purpose-built studio launched on November 10, following approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Operators will now have access to more of Evolution’s range of online live casino games for this market, including the brand-new Football Studio, described as "the first live dealer variant of a top card game" available in North America, following the First Person launch of the game back in September this year.
Jacob Claesson, Chief Executive Officer North America, commented: “This is another exciting landmark for our operations in North America. Our aim has been simple when it comes to this market, to provide the best possible entertainment experience to the players, while giving our operators the games and tools needed to stay ahead."
The studio was built "thanks to the strong demand" that Evolution sees in the state and will cater to the company's expansion "in the years to come." It is set to give the firm "the space needed to continue bringing new games to players in New Jersey."
"More tables and games will be launching in the coming weeks and months as we continue to hire additional people, continuing to build our incredible team in North America and offer exciting new opportunities to both operators and players," Claesson concluded.
Back in October, Evolution reported its financial results for thethird quarter of the year. For the period ended September 30, the B2B online casino services provider posted total revenues amounting to EUR 378.5 million ($379.1 million), an increase of 37.1% compared to last year’s Q3. The company further delivered EBITDA of EUR 261.0 million ($261.4 million), up by 35.3%, corresponding to a margin of 69%.
