Evolution and Penn Interactive, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming, have today announced the launch of a custom-built live online casino in New Jersey. The new live casino, titled Barstool Sportsbook & Casino, is situated in Evolution’s New Jersey production studio and will produce live sports betting and gaming content.
According to a statement, the development of this live casino studio is just one of a number of expansions Evolution is making to Penn’s Barstool brand throughout the US.
Jeff Millar, commercial director, North America at Evolution said: "We are delighted to continue to build on our very strong relationship with Penn Interactive. We have worked together to create a bespoke dedicated live casino studio, completely customized to Barstool's brand and look-and-feel.
“We very much look forward to rolling out our industry-leading mix of live games and slots to Penn players in further states."
This announcement comes after the launch of Barstool live casino in Evolution’s Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania studios.
Jon Kaplowitz, head of Penn Interactive, added: "The combination of Evolution's great team and proven ability to deliver the widest range of quality online casino products quickly to market makes them an ideal partner for Penn Interactive.”
He continued: “We are especially excited about the development of the custom Barstool-branded studio, which allows us to further utilise the broad array of media talent at Barstool Sports and provide our customers with yet another differentiated gaming experience."
Evolution recently agreed an extension to its US-based partnership with Betway. The two companies will continue to build upon their US-based partnership via a distribution deal in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Miller 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."
