Live Casino solutions provider Evolution Gaming announced a new agreement with Scientific Games to exclusively provide a live variation of Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Ultimate Texas Hold’em generates over one billion Euros in land based casinos and as a result of the 3.5 year deal, Evolution will be the only Live Dealer games provider to offer the game, which is scheduled to launch over the summer.
Ultimate Texas Hold’em allows for an unlimited number of players to get in on the game from one table giving operators the opportunity to attract poker players to the side of casino games.
Tom Wood, Vice President and Chief Product Officer, B2B, Interactive at Scientific Games, said, “There was a time when a dozen different Hold'em games were being offered by casinos, but only this one emerged from the pack as the dominant game at land-based casinos around the world. With its scalability and pace, we are confident that it will be an excellent game in the Live Casino environment, and we are excited to see Evolution with its industry-leading platform being the provider to make it happen.”
Todd Haushalter, CPO of Evolution Gaming, said, "We are excited about furthering our partnership with Scientific Games. Being able to exclusively offer our partners the most popular Hold’em game in the world helps us further cement our leadership position in the live casino space. Building up our specialty game offering which also includes Caribbean Stud and Three Card Poker is part of our strategy to make the transition from land-based to online seamless for players."
