Gala Coral’s Italy-facing subsidiary Eurobet Italy has expanded its product range with the launch of a mobile-only live dealer casino product supplied by Evolution Gaming.

The deal is unusual in that Eurobet will only roll out the offering for mobile users, and while it retains the option to launch a desktop product, the operator has no plans to go live with the solution for the time being.

Eurobet has rolled out Evolution’s mobile roulette, blackjack and baccarat live dealer tables, which are available across Android and iOS devices.

The launch of the live dealer product comes as the operator looks to further bolster its position in the Italian market, where it maintains over 850 betting shops and a betting and gaming site, as well as serving as title sponsor of the country’s second-highest football division, Serie B Eurobet.

The company’s managing director Paolo Bazzocchi said that Eurobet had a strong strategic focus on mobile gaming, which he described as a “fast-growing channel.”

“[We] must give our players the best selection of live tables for mobile play, which is represented by the Evolution mobile live casino offering,” Bazzocchi added.

Evolution’s chief executive for Italy and vice president of business development Gionata La Torre said he was “absolutely delighted” that Eurobet Italy has partnered his company.

“With its widespread presence across Italy and its sharp focus on web services and mobile, Eurobet Italy is a true multi- channel operator,” La Torre continued. “As Evolution’s mission is to deliver a flawless live casino via multiple devices and channels in regulated markets, our two companies are very well matched. Together we are looking forward to a very exciting future.”

The deal further strengthens Evolution's presence in the Italian market where it is already live with the likes of Betclic Everest Group, digital entertainment and Betsson.
