Internet betting giant Microgaming has announced that it has named live dealer software developer Evolution Gaming their preferred live dealer supplier, and will offer the live games to its Europe-based customers.
The first operator to take advantage of the arrangement is Betway, which will offer the live dealer games through Microgaming's betting platform. The casino will have both standard and VIP live dealer games such as blackjack, roulette, and baccarat in their live library, as well as London Roulette. All games will be broadcast from Evolution's studio in Malta.
Commenting on the deal Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said, "Evolution's 100 percent focus on B2B Live Casino provision, allied to their significant and sustained investment in skills and infrastructure, has made them a dominant player in Live Casino. Through the deal with Evolution, we can offer our operators a regulated, European-focused Live Casino experience. We offer a fully-rounded, unrivalled gaming offering to our clients, and this agreement cements our commitment to continually deliver this. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Evolution in the future through the potential provision of Microgaming content via our Quickfire platform."
Evolution Gaming CEO Jens von Bahr added: "This is likely to be one of the most significant strategic deals in the history of Live Casino gaming. In the past, Microgaming and Evolution have been competitors when offering Live Casino services to licensees. We know the high standards set by Microgaming, they are a giant in the gaming world, and we are proud to establish a close working relationship with them, with a single shared goal: to offer the world's best Live Casino to Microgaming's extensive licensee base."
