Online casino and sportsbook operator Betzest has enhanced its content offering after inking an agreement with live casino specialists Evolution Gaming.

Under the terms of the partnership Betzest players are going to be able to access Evolution’s range of live casino titles, including roulette, baccarat, blackjack, progressive jackpots and a variety of poker variants.

Striving to become “one of the world’s leaders in offering high class sports betting and casino games,” the link-up is lauded as “another significant step” in the firm’s global expansion plans.

The company asserts that further collaborative announcements with a variety of providers are lined up for the beginning of the third quarter of the year.

Marius Filip, founder/CMO at Betzest, explained: “After the launch of MGA license, we are excited to conclude another partnership with leading live casino provider Evolution Gaming.

“We are always looking to improve the Betzest product for our players and we trust that their highly innovative and entertaining games will play an important part in making Betzest this year’s leading live casino operator. 

“A big thank you to our Betzest team for this great accomplishment and to Evolution Gaming team for their continuous support during the process. We’ve had an exceptionally fruitful 2020 already, with a remarkable collection of world-class casino providers and payment methods on the way, I’m certain the best is yet to come.”

This follows news from last month which revealed that Evolution is striving to add a further piece of the igaming jigsaw via a bid to buy NetEnt, an offer the latter’s board is recommending to shareholders.

The proposed transaction sees Evolution offer 0.1306 shares for each share in NetEnt, valuing each at SEK 79.93 and all shares in the firm to approximately SEK 19.6bn.

The offered consideration per share represents a premium of 43 per cent compared to the closing price of the NetEnt share of series B on Nasdaq Stockholm on June 23, 2020.
