Evolution and Scientific Games Expand Partnership
Back in 2016, Evolution Gaming and Scientific Games entered into a partnership that saw Evolution provide Live Dealer Casino games for online casinos around the world. That partnership has steadily grown since that time and according to a recent report from Evolution Gaming, the partnership continues to expand.
Per a press release issued on Evolution’s website, the Evolution library of Live Casino games will be added to Scientific Game’s Open Gaming System (OGS).
Live Casino Games Added to OGS Network
Evolution Gaming announced their extended partnership with Scientific Games on Monday, announcing that Live Casino games from Evolution will now appear on their OGS network. The Open Gaming System network provides access to a massive gaming network from over 60 gaming providers, including third-party providers.
According to the website, there are over 2,000 games available on the OGS network with over 1.5 billion game rounds played each month. This network allows online casinos to customize their online experience without having to pay for additional development or worry about the upkeep of the network.
SVP of Casino at SG Digital spoke on the expanded partnership, stating, “We are delighted to add Evolution Live Casino games to our OpenGaming ecosystem, which includes our OGS content aggregation platform and is renowned worldwide for the quality and breadth of content it offers. Evolution’s world-class Live Casino offering now adds even further choice for our licensees across multiple territories, including the US to provide their players with feature-rich multi-studio content and experiences.”
Live Dealer Games Broadcast from Three Studios
Evolution Gaming provides a wide variety of Live Dealer online casino games, including Three Card Poker, Baccarat, Blackjack, Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, and Caribbean Stud Poker. These games combine the feel of live casino play with the convenience of online casino gambling.
Evolution offers Live Dealer games through a small network of studios. Their primary studio is located in Latvia and services most of the European market. Special services and Live Dealer games are also headquartered there.
Malta is the second location and serves as a secondary location for Europe. Finally, Evolution has a Canadian studio used primarily to service Canada online casinos.
James Stern, Evolution America’s Chief Business Development Officer also spoke on the deal, commenting, “We have worked with Scientific Games for a number of years on exclusive game content and we are glad to extend this relationship and have Evolution’s Live Casino available on the Scientific Games platform.”
Latest in Line of Successful Moves by Evolution and Scientific Games
Evolution and Scientific Games have been busy recently with successful partnerships. Recently, the two companies launched a pair of successful deployments in Canada. They provided games for both the British Columbia Lottery Corporation and for LotoQuebec.
The companies have been very active in the regulated online casino market in the United States. Part of the initial partnership was a focus on the growing online casino market, especially in New Jersey. Recently, the companies launched various integrations in NJ. They provided services for both Resotrst Casino Hotel and the Kindred Group.
Moves such as this are fairly common in the online gambling world, and online gaming networks such as Scientific Game’s OGS are becoming increasingly popular. For online casinos in the United States, content libraries such as this will give potential operators a simple way to launch an online casino site.
These networks are customizable, so online casinos can choose to focus on a small number of online casino games, such as what’s currently happening at Pennsylvania online casinos, or they can offer a large selection to give their players greater choice. This isn’t the last deal we will see from this pair and we can expect many more integrations as the US online casino market continues to expand.
