The live dealer casino market in the United States is going to get bigger and better in the coming months as two of the top live dealer casino operators are expanding their presence in the United States.
The COVID-19 shutdown in 2020 forced hardcore live casino players to turn to online casino games. Most land based casino players prefer an interactive experience and hence online casinos that had live dealer games saw an uptick. Casino operators across the U.S. are now focusing on improving their live dealer offering.
Playtech is making inroads into the U.S. market by setting up its first live dealer casino studio in Michigan. This will be the first of many live dealer casino studios as the operator has expressed plans to set up live dealer casino studios in all regulated gaming markets across the U.S.
Playtech COO Shimon Akad said that the company was committed to designing a highly sophisticated live dealer studio in Michigan and will focus on delivering highly innovative and entertaining live dealer games.
The live dealer studio is being developed in Southfield. Michigan and in many ways will mirror its flagship studio in Riga, Latvia. Playtech has already secured approval for the studio from the state gaming regulator. The plan is to not only offer live dealer games but also content that models popular game shows.
Evolution Comes to Pennsylvania
Evolution is considered to be the premier live dealer casino studio in the world. Players in Pennsylvania will now be able to play live dealer games from Evolution as the developer has partnered with the Cordish Gaming Group. The PlayLive! Casino which went live in August 2020 will now offer first person RNG games from Evolution.
Evolution is currently building a live dealer casino studio in Philadelphia and is expected to complete it before June 2021. The plan is to broadcast live dealer casino games from this studio to players all over the Keystone state. Evolution is set to pump out a variety of game show styled games, live dealer casino games and first person RNG games.
The Cordish Gaming Group released a statement and said they were happy to partner with one of the biggest names in the live casino space and offer their players a great portfolio of live dealer games from Evolution.
