News Highlights

  • Parx Casino and Evolution Gaming signed an agreement to launch live dealer games in Pennsylvania
  • Live games by Evolution Gaming are some of the best on the market
  • Evolution Gaming’s expansion to the US online gambling industry continues

The First Live Casino Games Arrive in Pennsylvania

Parx Casino launched as an online gambling platform in Pennsylvania nearly six months ago and has already announced the launch of live-streamed games. Through a new partnership with Evolution Gaming, a leader in live stream gaming content, Parx Casino will soon offer players in the Keystone State live casino games. The gaming portfolio includes:

  • Table Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Poker
  • Exclusive TV-show-style and other games

Parx Casino’s Senior Vice President of iGaming & Sports, Matthew Cullen, said they were very confident that all types of players would be excited by the rollout of Evolution’s portfolio.

Parx was the first Pennsylvania casino to offer RNG Blackjack games online, so extending our online offering to include world-leading Live Casino from Evolution is a natural next step. Our online Blackjack player base, in particular, will love Evolution’s Live Blackjack offering, which includes Infinite Blackjack, with no limit on the number of seats available at the table, as well several other Blackjack variants

Mobile-Friendly Live Dealer Games

Parx Casino will launch the game portfolio in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Evolution is about to open its newly-built Pennsylvania studio for this purpose. Games for New Jersey players will continue to stream from its existing studio. The award-winning live games are all fully compatible with smartphones, tablets, and desktop devices so that players can enjoy mobile casino gaming.

A Partnership Made in Heaven

Becoming the first to launch live dealer options is important for Parx Gaming. Back in 2016, Golden Nugget’s partnership with Ezugi turned it into a dominant operator in the live casino sector. The tax for online table and live dealer games is only 16% compared to that whopping for online slots of 54%. This move would be a win-win for Parx Gaming.

The operator will spend less on taxes and win over the hearts of millions of players from Pennsylvania, waiting to get their hands on Evolution Gaming’s titles. With a huge fan base, there couldn’t be a better match for Parx Casino and its ambitions than Evolution Gaming.

Evolution’s Expansion to the US

Live casino games combine human dealers, automated casino equipment, and physical cards and dice. When they join, players get the chance to chat with the professional dealers, place wagers, and enjoy a realistic live-streamed experience, just like in a land-based casino.

Evolution Gaming has been creating such games for years now. The developer is the frontrunner in this category of games, thanks to its innovative content, latest solutions, and advanced technology.

Renowned Live Casino Studio

Even though it was not the first developer to step foot on the US gambling market, it is the only one to provide live games in the regulated markets. With an already established and successful studio in Atlantic City, Evolution decided to expand its reach on the US soil further, securing a license from Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

Partnership with Hollywood and Parx Casino

With the approval from PGCB, Evolution Gaming signed a deal with Penn National Gaming to launch live casino games to the online wing of Hollywood Casino. Now it has announced the partnership with Parx Casino and the launch of the first live dealer games in Pennsylvania. Evolution’s Chief Commercial Officer, Sebastian Johannisson, stated the following:

We are delighted to be working with Parx and look forward very much to delivering their online Live Casino service. With table games subject to lower tax, our Live Casino is an attractive proposition for operators too, as well as its wide appeal to players – both familiar with online and those having played in the bricks and mortar casino – offering a very important and significant contribution to operator revenues
