Evolution Live Casino to Join PokerStars Casino NJ
Evolution Gaming announced it has agreed to a deal with the Stars Group to provide its Live Casino dealer-assisted online table-game product in New Jersey through the PokerStars Casino NJ portal.
The Stars Group, a longstanding Evolution customer operating a dedicated Live Casino environment for PokerStars Casino at Evolution’s main central European studios in Riga, Latvia, will use Evolution’s recently opened studio in Atlantic City for its latest New Jersey product launch.
Already operating in New Jersey, the Stars Group operates other online gaming brands in the state, including PokerStars and BetStars.
“We have worked with the Stars Group since 2015, during which time we have worked together in a number of regulated markets in Europe,” said James Stern, director of business development & land-based sales at Evolution.
“The immediate popularity of our Live Casino tables at our Atlantic City studio has exceeded even our high expectations. I am confident that PokerStars Casino New Jersey’s customers will be drawn to Live Casino, and enjoy the thrill of playing at our wide range of live roulette, blackjack and baccarat tables.”
In addition, Evolution Gaming announced the launch of its first totally scalable, dealer-assisted table. Evolution’s Live Infinite Blackjack adds a unique twist of the traditional blackjack game to the company’s extensive live table games portfolio, while providing an unlimited number of seats at a single blackjack table.
Available on desktop, tablet and smartphone, Infinite Blackjack is an innovative solution that guarantees players a blackjack seat at all times, in contrast to traditional blackjack tables where only seven seats are available at each table.
Online players take their virtual seats at the table, with a mix of physical and virtual cards being dealt in real time by a professional live dealer. A limitless number of players are dealt the same initial two-card hand, but thereafter each player can make his or her own betting decisions and end with a different hand. Throughout the game players can interact with the dealer, just like in a real casino.
Todd Haushalter, chief product officer at Evolution, said, “With Infinite Blackjack we finally cracked the code on how to make a one-to-many blackjack game fun and without having to make any rule changes. We did this using advanced game software, that combines the live dealing of physical cards and virtual cards directly to each individual player. This enables the dealing of individual hands for each player at the table, irrespective of how many players there are at any given time.”
Live Infinite Blackjack streams live from Evolution’s primary central studios in Riga and is available now to all Evolution licensees.
