Internet betting group Evolution Gaming has announced that they've signed a content supply deal with sportsbetting group Matchbook, and will offer their live dealer services to the site as a result.
The deal will see Evolution's full live dealer portfolio of games offered at Matchbook, with the site offering blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and more to players. The games are available on both desktop and mobile devices and will join the site's other casino offerings. The games are expected to go live sometime in the second quarter of this year.
Speaking about the deal Evolution Chief Commercial Officer Sebastian Johannisson said, "We are very confident that Matchbook players will love their new extended line-up of Live Casino games. The Evolution games will bring something new, fresh and different - including exclusive titles such as Live Ultimate Texas Hold'em, Live Three Card Poker and Immersive Roulette. At the same time, the unique Progressive Jackpot side bet in our Live Caribbean Stud Poker adds potential for further big money wins alongside Matchbook's existing Big Jackpots."
"Very importantly, the Evolution games will significantly extend 'anytime, anywhere' access for Matchbook's players. Mobile access to our Live Casino games now accounts for over 45% of game revenue across our network. Mobile play, available on over 200-plus tables is a fundamental bedrock growth in today's Live Casino market."
Matchbook's Cian Nugent also commented, noting: "Having recently completed the switch to our brand new platform, this is just the latest in a series of significant improvements to the Matchbook customer experience and a further signal of our intent in 2017 and beyond. Live casino has been a big area of growth for us in the last 12 months already and with Evolution recognized as a leader in live casino, and with this agreement Matchbook players will have increased opportunities to play different games and different tables, across even more devices."
Well one more deal for Evolution Gaming. Those are defintiely great news for them, but it kind of makes me wonder- are they the leaders of providing live dealer services?
I'm curious about this sportsbook and definitely have the intention to try my luck there, probably at casino too but still not there yet.
