Evolution Gaming have been awarded a conditional interactive gaming provider license by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. They become the first live casino provider to win a license in Pennsylvania and have begun planning the construction of their live dealer studio there.
Pennsylvania introduced online gambling legislation in late 2017 and have moved quickly since then to get their state’s infant online casino industry up and running.
PRESS RELEASE – Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has secured its conditional Interactive Gaming Manufacturer license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). This means that Evolution now has approval to deliver Live Casino services on behalf of gaming operators from its planned live studio in the state.
Evolution Gaming was the first Live Casino provider to gain New Jersey Preliminary Waiver status, and now becomes the first Live Casino provider to be licensed in Pennsylvania. According to Evolution, plans are underway for the construction of a new Evolution studio in Pennsylvania.
James Stern, Chief Business Development Officer — America & Land-based at Evolution, said:
“Demand for our Live Casino services in the US has been phenomenal. We are delighted to be further expanding our US operations by opening a standalone studio in Pennsylvania to serve both online operators and land-based casinos in the state. We are looking forward to opening up our world-leading Live Casino portfolio to operators and players in the state of Pennsylvania.”
“We continue to stay at the forefront — maximising the opportunities in this exciting new market and growing together with our licensees.”
Furthermore, to support continued growth in New Jersey, Evolution is doubling the size of its Atlantic City studio. This expansion will allow additional US licensees to create dedicated tables and environments as well as expanding the games portfolio by adding award-winning ‘crowd pleasers’ to the existing games line-up.
