New Jersey online casino patrons can expect more live dealer games to enter the market.

Today, 888 Casino and Evolution Gaming announced they would extend their partnership that exists in Europe into New Jersey.

888 Casino NJ will add the following live casino action this summer:

  • American (Double Zero) Roulette
  • Automated Slingshot Roulette
  • Three Card Poker
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker

In a statement announcing the partnership, 888 chief operating officer Itai Pazner said the following:

“888 is committed to growing in regulated markets and has expanded in the US over the last five years. We see the addition of Evolution’s live casino to 888casino as an excellent growth opportunity, and it will allow us to offer even more entertaining products to customers across their favorite 888 sites.”

The 888 Casino and Evolution partnership

It has been nearly a decade since 888 secured its initial partnership with Evolution Gaming to bring live dealer games to its European customers.

While 888 and Evolution operate a highly successful European online live dealer experience, this will be 888’s first offering of live dealer games in New Jersey.

James Stern, Evolution Gaming’s director of business development and land-based sales, said:

“888 and Evolution have a long-standing and successful relationship. Working together so closely has already resulted in 888 being first to market in a number of other jurisdictions.

“Both of our companies approach each new market in a very systematic way to mitigate risk and maximize the opportunity for success. New Jersey is no different. Certainly, from Evolution’s perspective, the time is now right, and we are delighted to be working with 888’s New Jersey team.”

Live dealer games at NJ gambling sites

Live dealer games began at NJ gambling sites in August 2016. Golden Nugget NJ online casino was the first to offer the experience and since then has been the leader in the space.

It’s the advantage of being first to market that some credit Golden Nugget’s dominance in the NJ online gambling industry.

Recently Borgata Casino also began offering online live dealer games as did its affiliated sites playMGM and PartyCasino NJ.

Live online casino games have human dealers and run the game in real time from a physical gaming table. Players view the game via a live stream. They also have the ability to communicate with the dealer while placing their bets on their digital device.

NJ online casino gamblers seem to love their live dealer games. There is no doubt that 888 Casino NJ will benefit from offering the games on their platform. The exceptional software Evolution provides has the potential of growing the 888 Casino brand in the Garden State.

“We are confident that Evolution’s live casino will continue to drive additional growth for 888 in New Jersey,” said Pazner.
