Live Casino Games Now Available To WV Online Casino Players
Evolution Gaming has started to make an impact all over the United States. After going live in the state of Michigan just a couple of months ago through Eagle Casino and Resort, Evolution has taken their product to the east coast by providing their catalog of live casino games to the online gambling operators in the state of West Virginia. Evolution Gaming had a press release on Tuesday to announce that online casino players in the state of West Virginia will now be able to play Evolution’s live dealer games. These games encompass all the player’s favorites from Blackjack, Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Lightning Roulette, Three Card Poker, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em. Each of these live table games is broadcasted and live-streamed to online casinos from the Evolution Gaming studio located in Pennsylvania.
Live Evolution Experience
The Commercial Director of North America for Evolution Gaming, Jeff Millar, said that the company is beyond happy to bring its live dealer gaming experience to the online gamblers in West Virginia. They believe that the online gamblers will surely enjoy what they see in the product and the total experience of playing live at their favorite table games. To them, it will be like they are playing at a real brick-and-mortar-based casino.
Millar went on to say that the online casino players in the state of West Virginia have already been playing Evolution Gaming games, even if they aren’t playing live games. West Virginia has had Evolution Gaming slots available to casino operators in the state from NetEnt, and the Evolution Gaming brand. Millar stated that the live casino product provides even more options for the West Virginia-based online casino player and brings a new level of thrill as players can make their online wagers in real-time with actual real-life dealers right next to other online gamblers.
First American Live Studio
Evolution Gaming, the world’s biggest supplier of live online casino games, opened up shop in 2006 and launched their first American broadcast studio in the state of New Jersey in 2018. Currently, Evolution runs their business in three different locations in America, with an additional location in Pennsylvania. The state of Pennsylvania was the fourth state in America to have legal online gambling through Hollywood Casino, which launched an online platform in July of 2019. There is also a studio located in Michigan with plans for Evolution to launch their live casino product in the state of Connecticut.
After states like New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, West Virginia has become the fourth state in America where Evolution Gaming has provided live casino gaming options. Their online slot product, however, has been active in the West Virginia online casino landscape since September of 2020. This came about a year after the state of West Virginia passed legislation to legalize online casino games through the West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act. This was done through four West Virginia racetrack casinos and a resort casino in The Greenbrier.
Soaring Eagle Partnership
Earlier this year, Evolution Gaming recently partnered with Soaring Eagle Gaming, based in the state of Michigan. The casino is under the ownership of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Nation. This partnership provided the online catalog of Evolution Gaming, Red Tiger, and NetEnt games to be provided to the online players of Soaring Eagle Gaming. This list includes the live casino online content and first-person RNG games from the new and improved live studio located in Michigan. Many in the Michigan area know about the Soaring Eagle Gaming name through the Saginaw Chippewa’s Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort that is near Mount Pleasant.
Just this year, in April, the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe extended their gambling reach to the online industry featuring both online casino and sports wagering through the Michigan Gaming Control Board. This marked the fifteenth online casino and sportsbook operator in the state of Michigan. With this launch, they now operate under the name of Eagle Casino and Sports. They have also partnered with top platform provider GAN and reached the regulatory requirements in order to receive their license to go live.
