Stockholm-listed casino giant Evolution has launched its second New Jersey live casino studio, the company’s fifth studio serving the fast-developing US iGaming market.

Evolution opened its first US casino studio in New Jersey back in August 2018, while the new purpose-built studio went live in mid-November following approval from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

The US is becoming an increasingly important revenue generator for Evolution. In Q3 2022, the North American market contributed €50.1m to the company’s total revenue, up 57.1% when compared to the same period in 2021.

Besides New Jersey, Evolution operates live casino studios in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

Jacob Claesson, Evolution’s recently appointed North America CEO, commented: “This is another exciting landmark for our operations in North America. Our aim has been simple when it comes to this market, to provide the best possible entertainment experience to the players, while giving our operators the games and tools needed to stay ahead.

Evolution North America CEO Jacob Claesson: “The studio was built thanks to the strong demand that we see in the state and will cater for our expansion in the years to come. It will give us the space needed to continue bringing new games to players in New Jersey.”

Claesson continued: “More tables and games will be launching in the coming weeks and months as we continue to hire additional people, continuing to build our incredible team in North America and offer exciting new opportunities to both operators and players.”

Operators in New Jersey will now have access to additional live casino games, including the brand-new Football Studio – the first live dealer variant of a top card game available in the US.

In September, Evolution launched the RNG-based First Person version of the game, which includes a ‘GO LIVE’ button that takes players through an in-game portal and into the live Football Studio game.
