DraftKings, operator of fantasy sports contests and (from mid 2018) New Jersey licensed online sports betting, will soon also be offering live dealer games from Evolution Gaming.
DraftKings have just signed a license that will enable them to offer their customers live blackjack, roulette (American), baccarat and poker variations streamed Evolution’s Atlantic City dealer studio.
The deal is an early indication that Evolution Gaming haven’t hit the pause button on their aggressive US expansion in the wake of the Department of Justice’s new interpretation of the Wire Act.
PRESS RELEASE – 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.”
