Evolution lands live casino deal with Flutter brands

22 October 2019

Live dealer software supplier Evolution Gaming has agreed a deal to provide its live casino gaming solutions to Flutter Entertainment's Paddy Power and Betfair brands.

Under the agreement, Paddy Power and Betfair will roll out the entire portfolio of Evolution live casino games, including titles based on brands such as Deal or No Deal Live, and proprietary game variants such as Lightning Roulette.

The agreement, which Evolution described as a “major deal” for the supplier, will also cover its international native speaking roulette package.

“We have seen the strong performance from Evolution’s product line over recent years,” Paddy Power’s commercial director Mike Phelan said. “We are incredibly excited to be able to extend our offering in the Live Casino space by offering our players exclusive big brand live games such as Deal or No Deal Live and Lightning Roulette, to name just two of the big attractions in the Evolution games portfolio.”

Sebastian Johannisson, chief commercial officer at Evolution, added: “This is a landmark agreement for Evolution, a significant deal that we have been working towards for a number of years.

“We are honoured to be working with Flutter Entertainment. Our companies are very well matched in terms of ambition and culture, and we are confident that we are the perfect partner to take their live casino offering to the next level.”

The new deal comes after Evolution last week also extended its relationship with Scientific Games by adding its range of live casino solutions to the Open Gaming System (OGS) distribution network.

Evolution and Scientific Games have been working together since early 2016 and, as a result of licensing agreements, offer gaming content to players around the world.
