Betsafe partners with Evolution to offer leading Live Casino Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette

Evolution Gaming, the pioneer of video-streamed Live Dealer gaming, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Betsafe, one of Scandinavia’s largest online gaming operators, to provide leading-edge, TV quality Live Casino games at www.betsafe.com

Under the initial two-year agreement, signed at ICE in London, Evolution will deliver live dealer online Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette games.

Evolution’s live games are delivered in real time to players’ PCs and feature real tables and real cards, live dealers and live interaction amongst dealer and players. The games are acknowledged to be the closest online players can get to the real casino experience.

Commenting on the potential of his company’s move into live games, Betsafe CEO Henrik Persson said: “We are thrilled to enter into a partnership with Evolution Gaming. We were committed to adding Live Casino to our offering and Evolution were the natural choice as their solutions stand out from the competition. We expect Evolution’s offering to generate significant incremental revenues. At the same time, Evolution games will serve as a cost-efficient marketing tool and a way to further localise our offering."

Betsafe’s new Live Casino offering will be accessed via a dedicated top-level menu ‘tab’ at www.betsafe.com to ensure maximum visibility and exposure of the new live games.

Persson explained: “We see Evolution’s Live Games as an important and strategic top-level offering. Of course, they will further enrich the Betsafe offer to existing customers. At the same time these games are proven to attract new demographics including, but not limited to, high rollers.”

Jens von Bahr, CEO of Evolution, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Betsafe; they have an impressive track record and an excellent understanding of marketing and execution in the online gaming world. I am confident we will see further innovative and localised live offerings emerging from our partnership over time."
