Partouche partners Evolution for Swiss live casino launch31st January 2020 9:25 am GMT
Stockholm-listed Evolution Gaming has been selected to provide its live casino solution to Groupe Partouche in Switzerland’s regulated iGaming market.
The Evolution-powered live casino is set for launch during the first half of 2020 and will include live dealer poker variants, roulette, baccarat, and games such as Lightning Roulette from the supplier’s game-show range.
Partouche owns two land-based casinos in Switzerland, Casino Du Lac Geneva and Casino Crans Montana, and is yet to receive approval to launch online by Switzerland’s Federal Council.
Currently, only six of Switzerland’s 21 casinos have been approved to launch online; Grand Casino Baden, Casino Davos, Grand Casino Lucerne, Casino Pfäffikon, Grand Casino Kursaal Bern and Interlaken Casino.
“Groupe Partouche’s historical roots are driven by strong family traditions and values,” said Casino du Lac Meyrin iGaming chief executive Alexander Sosnovski. “Our concept blends an original combination of games, shows, international catering and events aimed at creating a VIP experience and providing a high level of customer service.
“Evolution is therefore a strategic partner for us, not only because they are the leader in live casino games, but also because they are developing new and exciting technology for online entertainment.”
Evolution chief commercial officer Sebastian Johannisson commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Groupe Partouche to partner with them and have our live casino solutions available to their players in the Swiss market.
“The Evolution portfolio fits perfectly with the Partouche Group’s next generation of casino entertainment philosophy. We are confident that their players will love playing our live casino games online just as much as they enjoy visiting Partouche’s land-based casinos in person.”
Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (STO:EVO) climbed 1.51 per cent to SEK303.00 per share in Stockholm earlier Friday.
