Olympic Entertainment Group selects Evolution Live Casino
Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Olympic Entertainment Group (OEG). The agreement will see Evolution’s core Live Casino games offering on desktop, tablet and mobile added to OEG’s online gaming websites including Olybet.com and, potentially, converging with services at OEG’s land-based venues.
Olympic Entertainment Group with its subsidiaries is the market-leading provider of gaming services in the Baltic States and also operates casinos in Poland, Slovakia, Belarus, Italy and Malta. OEG shares are listed on the Tallinn and Warsaw Stock Exchanges. Currently the Group has a total of 125 casinos and 33 betting shops, with 3,260 employees in eight countries.
Veiko Krünberg, Managing Director of Online Operations and Sports Betting at OEG, said: “As the leading brand in the Baltics, and with a growing casino estate across central southern Europe, our vision is to be a global casino and resort operator. It is logical, therefore, to work with the largest supplier of Live Casino services. Evolution will give us a remarkable choice of games and tables across multiple devices from day one. Added to that, Evolution Live Casino provides world-class quality in operations and large scope and flexibility for future service development.”
James Stern, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales at Evolution, commented: “We are delighted to sign a service supply with one of the most established casino operators in Europe with Olybet already showing strong presence online. Not only will Olympic Casino and Olybet have access to our complete core offering to strengthen their live dealer product, they will also have the flexibility to extend that offering with native speaking tables and dedicated environments tailored to specific markets. They will also have the option of Dual Play Roulette, our leading convergence solution, which is a perfect fit for the Group’s mix of online and land-based operations.”
Stern added: “OEG is an ambitious, expanding group in both land-based and online vertical. Their vision, allied to the reliability and scalability of Evolution Live Casino, makes this a very exciting signing for Evolution.”
Fredrik Osterberg, Chief Strategy Officer at Evolution, added: “This deal is another milestone in line with our strategy to digitalise many of the world’s land-based casinos and we will work closely with Olympic Entertainment Group in order to help them with their ambitious plans.”
