Live Dealer Heading to Pennsylvania

Live dealer gaming is one of the more popular forms of online gambling available today. The option provides players with table games in real time, with the game taking place in a live setting. The blackjack, roulette and baccarat tables commonly found in live dealer settings are as close as players can get to the real thing from the comfort of home. In Pennsylvania, online casino gambling has been in full swing, but missing one element, live dealer. After receiving conditional licensing, Evolution Gaming will be bringing the option to the state very soon.

Live Dealer Approved

Evolution Gaming received the conditional license from the Gaming Control Board, being named an Interactive Gaming Manufacturer. The operator will be creating a live dealer studio in the state and offering live dealer games from the facility. The company has yet to reveal where the studio will be located and when the online gaming options will be live.

Evolution Gaming started their live dealer gaming foray in the US via New Jersey, back when the online gambling market first opened up. For years, they have seen great success offering quality live dealer content to players.

The company’s chief business development officer James Stern has commented on the expansion into Pennsylvania by stating the demand for Live Casino services in the US has been phenomenal. The company is delighted to be expanding to open a standalone studio in the state, a space that will serve land-based venues as well as online casino sites.

What to Expect?

With no solid details provided, we have to assume that the company will be offering similar content as they do in New Jersey. This would include baccarat, blackjack, American Roultte, blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker and Three Card Poker.

The games provided by Evolution Gaming are compatible with desktop and digital devices, so players would be able to access the gaming option from home or on the go.

At the same time as the company plans to start work on Pennsylvania live dealer gaming, the Atlantic City studio is about to get bigger. Evolution has announced the will increase the size of the studio by 50%.

In New Jersey, Evolution currently works with the 888 brand, Golden Nugget, Betfair, Resorts, Hard Rock, PlaySugarHouse, the Borgata and Ocean Resort Casino. The PlaySugarHouse site is operated by Rush Street Gaming, who is licensed in Pennsylvania. There is no doubt that Evolution will be working with the company in the Keystone State as well.

As the online gambling industry begins to take shape in Pennsylvania, live dealer gaming will certainly be a welcome sight. Players will be happy to see Evolution in the mix as they offer a solid variety of live dealer content, having been recognized as a top interactive gaming supplier for many years. It will be interesting to watch as the company begins to build their services in Pennsylvania and what they offer once live.

Operating in New Jersey and now Pennsylvania will help secure the company additional deals in new states as more areas begin to open up to online gambling services in the US.
