Stockholm-listed live dealer specialist Evolution Gaming has signed an agreement to provide its live casino services to DraftKings in New Jersey.

The deal sees Evolution deliver live casino games to the operator from its newly established US live studio in Atlantic City.

“DraftKings is a young and dynamic company that has blazed a trail in recent years with its best-in-class technology and extensive knowledge of sports,” said James Stern, Evolution chief business officer for America and land-based.

“DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its licence with the New Jersey regulators. We very much look forward to working with DraftKings on this project.”

Alongside DraftKings, Evolution will use its new US studio to launch services for a number of New Jersey-licensed operators including 888, Resorts, Hard Rock, PlaySugarHouse and Ocean Resort.

Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (STO:EVO) were trading down 0.54 per cent at SEK552.00 per share in Stockholm Friday morning.
