Gioco Digitale goes live with Evolution’s Live Casino in Italy

Evolution Gaming, the pioneer of video-streamed Live Dealer gaming, has announced that Gioco Digitale, one of the largest concessionaires in Italy’s new remote gaming market, has gone live with Evolution’s Live Casino.

The fully AAMS-approved Evolution Live Casino solution enables Gioco Digitale to offer its customers, onGDcasinò.it, a selection of live online Roulette and Blackjack tables at which to play. These tables include Venezia Roulette which, with its opulent interior and native speaking Italian dealers, replicates online the experience of playing in Italy’s finest land-based casinos.

Gioco Digitale is 100% part of bwin.party digital entertainment plc, the result of the recent merger of bwin and PartyGaming to create the largest stockmarket listed online gaming company in the world.

Commenting on the thinking behind the selection of Evolution, Paolo Di Feo, Southern Region Director at bwin.party said: “Gioco Digitale is committed to delivering an exceptional localised gaming service in Italy. Key factors behind the delivery of original products for the Italian public are the strength, stability and security of our group’s technology platform, our local focus, and our strategic partnerships with innovators such as Evolution Gaming. Evolution Live Casino is an excellent fit for us from a technology and customer service perspective – in Italy and across our other markets.”

Gionata La Torre, Evolution’s CEO in Italy commented: “PartyGaming is a long-standing Evolution customer, and since its merger with bwin we have worked closely with a number of divisions within the group. Gioco Digitale recognised that, as the first Live Casino provider to be fully approved by AAMS in Italy, Evolution shared its vision for the newly revitalised Italian market.”

La Torre added: “Italian customers are going to be very excited by the arrival of the Gioco Digitale Live Casino. The wide choice of live tables on offer, and the online live gaming experience with its real-time interaction amongst players and dealer, offers something for everyone – from experienced Roulette and Blackjack players to first-time players. For this reason we expect Gioco Digitale to benefit from high levels of interest and incremental revenue opportunities.”
