Stockholm-listed live dealer specialist Evolution Gaming has signed a deal to provide its live casino services to the recently opened Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

Hard Rock’s online live casino will go live over the summer, with a comprehensive line-up of Evolution live tables, including American (Double Zero) Roulette, Blackjack with side bets and Bet Behind, Baccarat, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker, and the automated Slingshot Roulette.

In addition, the venue will launch three dedicated Evolution Live Blackjack tables that will be exclusive to its players and will also host an Evolution Dual Play Roulette table on its main gaming floor.

The Dual Play Roulette table will be made available to Evolution’s European licensees, allowing online players to place their bets alongside on-premise players.

“As well as building Atlantic City’s premier destination casino, we want Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City to be the number one online destination for New Jersey players,” said Lee Terfloth, director of product, iGaming, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City. “Evolution is the ideal partner to help us achieve that. They have a proven track record in multiple European markets that they are the Live Casino leaders.”

Evolution director of business development and land-based sales James Stern commented: “We are very proud to be working with Hard Rock as one of our US licensees. As part of the fantastic mix of Hard Rock Live Casino services that will be offered to players in New Jersey, we are especially excited by the potential of the Evolution Dual Play Roulette table that will be located on the new casino’s main gaming floor.

“By allowing remote online players to play alongside on-premise players at the same gaming floor table, Dual Play will give remote players a taste of what will be a unique Hard Rock experience.”

“In a very competitive market where the power of the brand is so important, Dual Play - alongside all the other world-class live casino games to be offered to the Hard Rock’s online players - will play an important role in drawing players to this exciting new Hard Rock property,” he added.
