Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide Live Casino services from its new US live studio in Atlantic City, NJ, to DraftKings.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Boston, MA, DraftKings offers daily fantasy sports contests across 11 professional sports in eight countries including the US, Canada, UK and Australia.
On 6 August 2018, the company launched DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey, becoming the first operator to offer legal online and mobile sports betting in the state.
DraftKings Sportsbook allows players in New Jersey to engage in betting for major US and international sports.
James Stern, Chief Business Officer – America & Land-based at Evolution commented:
“DraftKings is a young and dynamic company that has blazed a trail in recent years with its best-in-class technology and extensive knowledge of sports.
DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its licence with the New Jersey regulators.
We very much look forward to working with DraftKings on this project.”
Press Release Ends
It looks like Evolution Gaming is cornering the market in New Jersey.
They’re already the provider of choice to a number of online live casinos in New Jersey. Now they own Ezugi, who are the only other supplier in NJ, Evolution really is dominating the market.
It can’t be long before we see further expansion of the studio.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
