Curaçao-licensed sportsbook-focused operator Marathonbet has launched a live casino offering provided by Evolution Gaming, with a range of generic tables now live.

The operator now offers Evolution’s Live Roulette, Immersive Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Blackjack and Live Casino Hold’em to desktop customers, with mobile versions to go live in September, at which time an online version of SHFL’s Three Card Poker game will also be added.

Marathonbet will also launch a dedicated Live Blackjack table in the coming weeks, featuring its own branding.

With games in a number of different languages and tailored for specific markets, the operator plans to use the Evolution product to expand its business in regulated markets.

“We wanted to work with the market leader, to have premium content and to offer our players a great experience across multiple devices,” Marathonbet online casino manager Christian Melin commented. “Our Live Casino is already gaining strong momentum and attracting a high number of unique players. We are confident these numbers will increase even more when we launch our and dedicated Live Blackjack table and mobile product.”

Evolution chief executive Jens von Bahr said that Marathonbet had proved to be especially strong in sportsbook, which he said had proved to be a “perfect pairing” with live casino in terms of cross-selling.

“With Marathonbet looking to drive further growth in regulated markets and to maximise brand awareness, this is a really exciting partnership that will capitalise on the full breadth of the Evolution live casino offering,” von Bahr said.
