Evolution and Betway agree partnership for New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Evolution has signed an agreement with the online operator Betway for the provision of its online Live Casino and First Person RNG-based casino games in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The Super Group-owned operator Betway is live in the US through a brand licensing agreement with Digital Gaming Corporation (DGC).

The deal also comes after Evolution received approval to offer live casino games in the state of Michigan back in July.

Evolution’s deal with Betway

Under the deal, Evolution’s online Live Casino games and First Person RNG-based casino games will be made available to Betway players on desktop, tablet, and smartphone in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

In addition to this, a wide range of casino games, including roulette, blackajck, baccarat, and several poker variants, will be made available both live and online.

Betway already offers a selection of slots title from Evolution’s brand NetEnt in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Jeff Millar, Evolution’s Commercial Director for North America, said: “Our US rollout continues at pace and, once again, we are delighted to be working with a brand with which we have already built an extremely strong and close relationship in other markets. We very much look forward to helping Betway achieve major success in these first two states, and in other states in the future.”

Betway CEO, Anthony Werkman commented: “Through our new US sports sponsorship deals the Betway brand will be seen courtside and rinkside in some of the biggest arenas in North America. Betway customers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be able to enjoy playing our world-class, Evolution-powered online casino games in their homes and while on the move. Having worked with Evolution for many years, we are confident that players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be very excited indeed by our US-focused online games offered in a fair, safe, secure and responsible environment.”

Betway in the US

Betway, a major player in the global online gambling market, has been looking to make a push into the US sports betting market.

The Malta-based betting brand is owned by Super Group and is currently available in four US states. Betway first live in Colorado, followed up by Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and most recently Indiana.

Back in April, Super Group announced plans for a $4.75bn New York Stock Exchange IPO. 

Super Group would go public via a merger with the special purpose acquisition company, Sports Entertainment Acquisition Corp (SEAC). According to the announcement, this transaction would be used to help expand Super Group’s presence across the US betting market.

The operator secured entry into the US betting market back in March via a deal with DGC. So far, DGC has secured market access for online gambling in 10 states which include New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and Iowa.

To help bolster its plans for US growth, Super Group also revealed it had agreed on definitive terms to acquire DGC.
