Unibet Extends Live Gaming Offering With Evolution

The recent launch of's live casino platform through a partnership with Evolution Gaming, the world leader in broadcast quality casino games, has been so successful that the European operator has moved to increase the number of Unibet branded Blackjack tables available to its customers.

The extension of Unibet's live casino offering comes just three months after Evolution Gaming agreed a deal to provide it with live-dealer Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette as part of the online gaming giant's plans to drive global expansion and target new demographics. This development is the latest example of how rapidly live gaming is penetrating and revolutionising the online casino market.

"Since we launched our live casino with Evolution we have been overwhelmed by how popular it has instantly proved to be with our customers," said Petter Nylander, CEO of Unibet. "Players have immediately learnt to appreciate the product as an important addition to our offering and we're pleased to extend the number of dedicated tables available to meet consumer demand."

The partnership between Evolution and Unibet is the first to take advantage of the expansion of Evolution's state-of-the-art live TV studios in Latvia. Unibet's 3 million customers in over 150 countries now have the option of playing casino games with live dealers at fully branded dedicated tables around-the-clock. 

"For Unibet to take this step after just a few months of offering live gaming to its customers reflects the huge demand for broadcast quality casino games. Our ability to provide our licensees with private tables is proving hugely popular and we will continue to meet the demand of big brand operators which need to provide their players with the best quality service 24/7," said Jens von Bahr, CEO of Evolution Gaming.
