SHFL Entertainment signed Evolution Gaming’s license deal

Global gaming supplier SHFL Entertainment Incorporated has signed a licensing deal for an unspecified number of its specialty table games with live dealer online casino software developer Evolution Gaming Limited.

Established in 2006 and licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority, Evolution Gaming will now have the rights to offer numerous titles from SHFL Entertainment in its live online casinos, which broadcast from Riga.

“We are thrilled to be working with Evolution Gaming,” said Lou Castle, Chief Strategy Officer for Las Vegas-based SHFL Entertainment.

“It is a leader in Europe's video-streamed live dealer space and has integrated with many of Europe's top operators. We believe that these merits along with the strength of our brands will prove to be a successful combination.”

The video-streamed live dealer environment presented by Evolution Gaming allows punters to play against real opponents using an Internet connection while its list of clients already includes operators such as Unibet, Mr Green and Ladbrokes.

“We are delighted to add SHFL Entertainment’s renowned table games to the existing Evolution Gaming line-up of live roulette, blackjack, baccarat and casino hold‘em games used by our licensees across Europe and to gain first-to-market online advantage in new markets such as Italy, Spain and Denmark,” said Jens Von Bahr, Chief Executive Officer for Evolution Gaming.

“Given our plans to expand into the United States and Canada, SHFL Entertainment’s games, which are so popular with American players, will enrich our tailored offering for the North American marketplace.”
