Evolution launches new dedicated US live online casino studio for Penn National
Evolution recently publicised the creation of a custom, dedicated live online casino studio in New Jersey for Penn Interactive, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming, Inc. The `Barstool Sportsbook & Casino' space is located within Evolution's live casino production studio in New Jersey.
This is the most recent expansion of Evolution’s services for Penn Interactive's Barstool brand in the regulated US gambling market, following the creation of Barstool live casino services out of Evolution's live casino studios in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. NetEnt, which was recently acquired by Evolution, will also have its online slot games featured on Barstool Sportsbook & Casino across these states.
If it manages to clear regulatory approvals, Evolution plans to launch in West Virginia later in the year and Red Tiger slots, another Evolution brand, is scheduled for a Q4 2021 launch in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Jeff Millar, the Commercial Director, North America at Evolution said,
"We are delighted to continue to build on our very strong relationship with Penn Interactive. We have worked together to create a bespoke dedicated Live Casino studio, completely customised to Barstool's brand and look-and-feel. We very much look forward to rolling out our industry-leading mix of live games and slots to Penn players in further states."
Jon Kaplowitz, the Head of Penn Interactive, added,
"The combination of Evolution's great team and proven ability to deliver the widest range of quality online casino products quickly to market makes them an ideal partner for Penn Interactive. We are especially excited about the development of the custom Barstool-branded studio, which allows us to further utilise the broad array of media talent at Barstool Sports and provide our customers with yet another differentiated gaming experience."
