Evolution Gaming agrees PokerStars New Jersey deal

Evolution Gaming has agreed a deal to power The Stars Group’s online live casino services for its PokerStars brand in New Jersey.

The supplier recently opened a studio in Atlantic City and will use this as its base for PokerStars’ New Jersey operations.

The Stars Group operates in New Jersey with PokerStars and BetStars, while it also uses Evolution’s main studios to power PokerStars Casino.

James Stern, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales at Evolution, said: "We have worked with The Stars Group since 2015, during which time we have worked together in a number of regulated markets in Europe.

"The immediate popularity of our Live Casino tables at our Atlantic City studio has exceeded even our high expectations. I am confident that PokerStars Casino New Jersey’s customers will be drawn to Live Casino, and enjoy the thrill of playing at our wide range of Live Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat tables."

Evolution Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter recently told Gambling Insider he sees Netflix and Youtube as competition, as the supplier looks to engage customers with entertaining products.
