Evolution selected by Grand Casino Baden for new Swiss gambling market

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, announced today that it has been selected by Switzerland’s Grand Casino Baden as its online Live Casino partner on www.jackpots.ch for Switzerland’s regulated gambling market.

The deal will see Evolution’s full suite of Live Casino games made available to the casino and its platform partner Gamanza to enable Grand Casino Baden with www.jackpots.ch to be amongst the first casinos to launch an online Live Casino for players in the new market, when Switzerland’s new online gambling laws are enforced on 1 July 2019.

Marketing itself as a “House of Entertainment” open 365 days of the year, Grand Casino Baden offers a high-quality mix of exciting gaming, entertainment and events, and fine cuisine. The range of casino classics on the casino’s two gaming floors includes not only Blackjack and Roulette, but also a wide choice of Poker games. This has resulted in the casino gaining a reputation as Switzerland’s Poker mecca, now offering the largest range of cash games in the country and over 350 tournaments a year.

Grand Casino Baden’s Evolution-powered Live Casino service will allow remote customers to play a rich mix of online live games from Evolution’s wide-ranging, award-winning portfolio on www.jackpots.ch. These games — all available to play on smartphone, tablet and desktop — include live dealer Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat, as well as numerous live dealer Poker variants and also Game Show style games such as Lightning Roulette.

Explaining the decision to partner with Evolution Gaming, Marcel Tobler, Chief Financial Officer at Grand Casino Baden, said: “This was an easy decision for us. Evolution has an excellent record in helping its licensees to launch world-class Live Casino services into regulated markets globally. At Grand Casino Baden we pride ourselves on providing an unrivalled range of offers and service to our players. Harnessing Evolution’s Live Casino will undoubtedly help us to consolidate and develop our position as one of Europe’s most highly regarded casinos.”

James Stern, Chief Business Development Officer – America & Land-based at Evolution, commented: “We are of course delighted to have been chosen by another of Switzerland’s top land-based casinos. The Evolution portfolio fits perfectly with Grand Casino Baden’s “House of Entertainment” concept. We are very confident that our live games portfolio, including not only casino classics but also Game Show style games, will prove to be very popular indeed with the casino’s clientele and will also help to attract further new visitors to the land-based venue.”
