Evolution to Launch New Live Casino Games for NJ and EU Players via Hard Rock Atlantic City
- August 13, 2018 By Oliver Young -
Judging from recent developments, Hard Rock Atlantic City is working hard to become one of the most innovative casinos in the New Jersey area. The casino, which officially opened doors on June 28, has already been making headlines with its desire to introduce skill-based machines and take gambling outside of the main floor. And now, the casino is once again in the spotlight with its new deal with live game provider Evolution Gaming, which will see a new live product launched from the casino’s main gaming floor.
Sleek Live Games for the World
According to a new official press release, the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City not only strives to be a top destination for land-based gaming but also a leading online casino in the NJ area. Near the end of last week, the casino announced that it has become the first US licensee of live casino game providers Evolution Gaming. The new partnership will see both brands cooperate together to launch a new live casino product for Hard Rock Atlantic City which will also feature streamed US-based live games from inside the brand new casino.
The new product will reportedly go live during summer of 2018 and it will feature a comprehensive selection of some of Evolution’s most popular table games. The software provider will also set up three new live Blackjack tables inside the casino which will be exclusive to Hard Rock’s users. The main gaming floor of the casino will also be home to an Evolution Dual Play Roulette table which will be opened for European players who will be able to play alongside local visitors in real time.
Director of Product and iGaming at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, Lee Terfloth, commented on the new product by saying that Evolution Gaming was the “ideal partner” to help the casino become a leading online destination for NJ punters. Director of Business Development and Land Based Sales at Evolution Gaming, James Stern, also shared his enthusiasm in the press release, saying that the studio is particularly excited to be able to offer an original Hard Rock experience to remote players.
Dual Play Roulette, Blackjack, and More
Evolution Gaming is one of the fastest-growing casino games studios which last year saw a quarterly growth year-on-year of a staggering 53%, most of which was driven by mobile players. The software provider offers a great variety of live games which are streamed from 8 different studios across the globe, including locations in Latvia, Malta, Canada, and in the future, New Jersey.
Hard Rock’s new online casino in Atlantic City will feature most of the studio’s live catalogue. Games of American Roulette with double zero wheels, Blackjack variants with Bet Behind features and side bets, as well as games of Ultimate Texas Hold’Em, Baccarat, and Three Card Poker are only some of the variants that will be available in the new live casino. And all of these options will be playable no matter if punters are using a desktop computer, a mobile phone, or a tablet.
