Evolution to power Parx Casino in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Live casino solutions provider Evolution Gaming had added further depth to its burgeoning US footprint after inking a new deal to power the Parx Casino offering across two states.

As a result of the agreement customers will be able to access a variety of online streamed live dealer table games from Evolution’s existing New Jersey studio and planned Pennsylvania base.

The Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment owned property, which boasts 150,000 square foot of gaming with 132 live table games, will enable players to access titles via desktop, tablet and smartphone across both regions.

Among the games available will be traditional casino offering such as roulette, blackjack and poker, as well as exclusive titles from the full Evolution live games portfolio.

“We are delighted to be working with Parx and look forward very much to delivering their online live casino service,” commented Sebastian Johannisson, chief commercial officer at Evolution

“With table games subject to lower tax, our live casino is a very attractive proposition for operators too, as well as its wide appeal to players – both familiar with online and those having played in the bricks and mortar casino – offering a very important and significant contribution to operator revenues.”

In the latest figures released by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the launch of poker and two new online casinos in November helped boost Pennsylvania’s gross revenue to a new record as the five entities generated $9.7m, up 98 per cent from $4.9m in October. 

Parx’s total igaming revenue for the month finished up at $1.5m, made up by slots revenue of $890,471 and table games revenue of $605,375.

Matthew Cullen, senior vice president of igaming and sports at Parx Casino, added: “Parx was the first Pennsylvania casino to offer RNG blackjack games online, so extending our online offering to include world-leading live casino from Evolution is a natural next step. 

“Our online blackjack player base in particular will love Evolution’s livBlacke blackjack offering, which includes Infinite blackjack, with no limit on the number of seats available at the table, as well several other blackjack variants. Overall, we are very confident that all players types will be very excited by the roll-out of Parx live casino in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.”
