LeoVegas-owned live casino specialist Authentic Gaming has signed a deal to offer European iGaming operators live streamed games from Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino.

The partnership enables online access to live casino games at a land-based venue in the United States for the first time, with the games set for distribution through Authentic Gaming's network of operators, which includes LeoVegas.

"This is the first time that live casino will be streamed from a US casino to European players,” explained Authentic Gaming chief executive Jonas Delin. “I am sure that players will be drawn to games from USA's largest casino, and we also expect to see growing interest from more operators.”

LeoVegas Group chief executive Gustaf Hagman added: "It is fantastic to see that we in the LeoVegas Group have succeeded with yet another unique achievement. The entire team at Authentic Gaming has worked hard to bring this partnership about, so great praise to them."
