Evolution Gaming to develop online casino products for PointsBet

Australian gaming giant Pointsbet has confirmed that it has signed a partnership deal with Swedish casino games developer Evolution Gaming Group AB to get live table gaming products. Under the terms of the partnership deal, which surfaced around a week after the announcement of PointsBet’s decision to offer its iGaming services in New Jersey, Evolution Gaming will be responsible for providing online table games for the Australian iGaming services provider. The Swedish developer said in a statement that it would develop and provide PointsBet with a mix of classic games, online poker and game show products.

Apart from New Jersey, PointsBet has plans to launch its iGaming products Michigan. The iGaming and sports betting company is obviously pushing ahead with its plans to expand its reach across the fast-growing online gaming market of the United States. PointsBet joined forces with the Sweden-headquartered online games developer to provide table games when it launches its iGaming product in the US.

Sebastian Johannisson, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) for Evolution Gaming Group, praised the partnership, saying the collaboration would not only allow the company to offer PointsBet a mix of various iGaming products but also to offer exclusively branded dedicated table games.

Announcing the partnership deal, PointsBet said, “We are thrilled to partner with Evolution Gaming to launch Live Casino technology in US jurisdictions, where we plan to offer our proprietary online casino platform. The addition of Evolution Live Casino extends the appeal of PointsBet’s premium product in the rapidly growing US market.”

In the past couple of years, PointsBet has made its presence felt in several parts of the United States by launching its mobile sports betting services in states like Iowa, Indiana and New Jersey. In Iowa, the company operates a retail sportsbook as well. Now it is working to further expand its reach into the fast-growing US iGaming market with agreements in place to launch its services in Michigan, Colorado and Illinois.

Meanwhile, Evolution Gaming Group is also pushing ahead with its ambition to expand its business through acquisitions. Most recently, it announced its plans to acquire Swedish casino game developer called NetEnt in a deal valued at $2.1 billion. Founded nearly one and half decade ago, the developer already has more than half a dozen live gaming studios that develop offer online games across the globe. The list of its clients includes Paddy Power, DraftKings, 888, Rush Street Interactive, and PokerStars.
