Live casino specialist Evolution Gaming has agreed a partnership with The Ritz Club, the exclusive casino and private members’ club at the Ritz Hotel in London.

Evolution will provide a live casino service for The Ritz Club, including one table broadcast live from the venue, as well as a range of other tables hosted at Evolution's studios in the Latvian capital of Riga.

A Dual Play Roulette table will be based in the casino, while club members will be able to access a range of VIP Roulette, VIP Blackjack, Baccarat Squeeze and Three Card Poker tables broadcasting from the Riga location.

The new online service is expected to go live later this year, looking to offer the same look and feel of the The Ritz Club’s 24/7 land-based gaming offering.

The online portal to all live casino tables at The Ritz Club will also be distinctively branded using Evolution’s ‘Live Lobby’, in order to reflect the ambience of the land-based venue.

Fredrik Osterberg, chief strategy officer at Evolution Gaming, commented: “We are honoured to be working with The Ritz Club, a name synonymous with exclusivity, luxury, and the very essence of fine gaming.

“Convergence is increasingly important in the land-based sector, and our Dual Play Roulette will afford The Ritz Club’s membership access to a private online table that sits at the very heart of their favourite club, and much more besides.”

Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (Co. Data) (STO:EVO) were trading up 6.61 per cent at SEK258.00 per share in Stockholm earlier Monday.
