Golden Nugget Expands Deal With Evolution, Adds ‘Show-Style’ Live Dealer Games In NJ

Golden Nugget Evolution Gaming

Golden Nugget is ready to roll out a range of new live dealer online casino games in New Jersey under an expanded partnership with European provider Evolution Gaming.

The deal will see Golden Nugget launch unique games likes Dream Catcher, Side Bet City, and Top Card alongside its current live formats. The games will be hosted out of the existing studio inside Golden Nugget Atlantic City as well as Evolution’s studio.

The competing NJ online casinos that currently use Golden Nugget’s studio will also have access to the new games, including:

  • Betfair/FanDuel
  • Borgata
  • BetMGM
  • PartyCasino
  • BetAmerica
  • Caesars

New games for broader Golden Nugget audience

SVP of online gaming Thomas Winter said the deal would offer Golden Nugget players “more unique show-style games.”

“The new generation of Evolution Live Casino games will also help us serve a broader player demographic, including sports bettors,” Winter added. “This, we believe, will allow us collectively to further increase the share of online casino revenue attributed to Live games.”

Nugget was the first operator to launch a live dealer product back in 2016, with its success helping drive it to the top of the NJ market.

The Golden Nugget license recorded $27.6 million in April revenue, by far the best in the business and nearly twice as much as its nearest rival.

Evolution the global live dealer leader

Evolution, meanwhile, is one of the largest online gambling companies in the world, with a $10 billion market cap and a dominant position in the live casino segment.

COO Sebastian Johannisson also welcomed the expanded partnership with Golden Nugget. “This deal further consolidates our position in New Jersey while providing an additional strategic platform from which to introduce additional new games to the US, including titles that have already been very successful in the live casino space in Europe.”

The two parties said the agreement could also be expanded to new US states as online casino legislation evolves.

Evolution’s US revenues climbed 54% year-on-year to $7.7 million in Q1, a 7.5% increase over the previous quarter. The firm additionally aims to open a new live dealer studio in Pennsylvania before the end of 2020.
