Live dealer betting specialist Evolution Gaming announced today that they've entered a content agreement with DraftKings and will provide U.S.-based live dealer games from their Atlantic City, New Jersey studio to the group.
The agreement will see DraftKings able to offer live casino products on their New jersey betting products, including blackjack, roulette, poker, baccarat, and more. The games are broadcast from a studio within Atlantic City, and feature webcast dealers. Evolution is considered to be a leader in the live dealer technology, and they recently purchased Ezugi in an effort to gain a stranglehold on the U.S. market. DraftKings is a daily fantasy sports group that has become a leading sportsbook in the United States, and they're continuing to expand throughout the country with a casino add-on to their book.
Commenting on the agreement Evolution's James Stern said, "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."
