Evolution Gaming will launch a new live dealer studio in Romania at the Grand Casino Bucharest, providing its live casino product to licensed operators in the country through a partnership with iSoftBet.

The live casino studio facility will be the first to be launched in the newly regulated Romanian iGaming market, and is scheduled to go live later this month. It is located on the level below the existing gaming floor in the casino.

Evolution has partnered iSoftBet, which is licensed in Romania to provide its own casino games as well as other certified third-party content, to distribute its live casino services to clients in the market.

The Grand Casino Bucharest live studio will initially offer a selection of Evolution’s core games streamed live to players on desktop, tablet and smartphone.

“Expansion in regulated markets is one of our key goals and our license in Romania with over 60 certified games is a true testament to that,” said Nir Elbaz, CEO of iSoftBet. “Partnering with Evolution will allow us to sell a multi-product offering in the market.

“In light of Evolution’s live casino studio build and our regulatory experience, and given the world-class quality of their live games offering, they were the natural partners.”

James Stern, director of business development and land-based sales at Evolution Gaming, said: “The studio location at Grand Casino is perfect. It is a prestigious resort-style venue well known to players in that market, which will add kudos to the new service and help to quickly build trust.

“Obviously, we are very excited to be launching an additional studio and always had the goal of being the first live casino provider certified to go live in this newly regulated market. With our track record of successfully deploying remote studios in other new jurisdictions such as Spain, Belgium and Italy, we are confident that we can achieve another ‘first-to-market’ success for licensees looking to operate in Romania.”

Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (Co. Data) (STO:EVO) climbed 2.71 per cent to SEK265.00 per share in Stockholm earlier Thursday.
